    Ground Hawgs or TSL\'s

    Alright its time to order some 38's but not sure which one. I think im down between Ground Hawg radials or Tsl's radials, both about the same price. Which one is better, which one will last longer, please help me out.

    TSLs will kick buttock in everything but wear. Or at least thats what I've been hearing. The ground hawgs wear like steel.

    What's wrong with radials? I wish I could afford 38" radials, then I could throw my brand new 36" tsl sx's away.

    Strength.

    Makes absolutely no sense for someone to wheel hard in a vehicle with 38" tires and have radials to me anyway, unless it sees a LOT of street time.

    my 40" hawgs on 16.5x9.75 rims like denman suggests are 38.8" opposed to their saying 39"

    now my new 40's on 16.5x12 rims pulled them down to about 38.4"... I will stick with ground hawgs... and someday I will be able to ride on them to tell you how they do... I was going to be done by this month.. but all this rain and other stuff is pushing my truck progress back.. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I'll choose Ground Hawg's everytime. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I can't afford both street tires and off road tires, so Ground Hawg 2's are the lodgical choice. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
