    ...and make a 36-14.50-R16 Swamper TSL? In the new Petersens on page 72 the National Tire and Wheel ad lists this size in bold as if it were a new tire...but I can't find any reference to it anywhere else.
    I've been wanting this tire for a while, anyone know if its for real?

    Not the boggers, that size has been out for a while. I meant the radial TSL's.

    I also saw that size listed (36x14.50R16). That same ad also listed some other new sizes in varios Interco styles, such as a 38.5x15 SSR.

    You are correct. Just spoke to them and they have that tire in a radial TSL 36x14.5/16 in a load rating of "E". Part number should be SAM-66R.

    In talking to Interco, there are many new sizes being developed. They are also pushing the issue of larger rim sizes. Not so the tires and rims are Pimp /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif - but for reasons such as: "Tires are lighter, easier to balance and less likely to have sidewall damage".

    They are also designing a new "All Around Tire" which will be Bogger/TSL'ish and could possibly become a full line tire.

    Not sure if I will have a set prior to the Midwest Spring K5 Thing, but stay tuned - I'll post pics when I get a set to test.

    Any details or web sites on other tire sizes coming out for TSLs? I found the Bogger new stuff on Interco's website.

    I would have to call and ask for all of their updates. Not sure if I want to do that, or just push them to update their site!

    Either way, I am sure if you are in the market for a new tire soon, you could call Interco direct and give them roughly the size you are looking for, and see if they will be molding them anytime soon.
