    they are the gods of tires!! my dad took my suburban to "get the brake lines installed" and when he got home, there were my tires that i waited 5 weeks for!! they were shipped from Colorado to LA and then to vegas. well they sat in LA for about two weeks and the guys at my local 4WPW didn't know what was going on with em. well they're here now, so i'm happy. from inside the truck they hum, outside they roar it's awesome! well now i have to cut my fenders. saws-all or die grinder? guess i need to change my signature now.

    Did you get the straight Swampers, or radials, SX's, etc? Let me know how they handle. What kind of tires did you run before?

    i got super swamper TSLs, 36x12.50-16.5s, no fancy (expensive) SSRs or radials for me just plain ol' bias plied TSLs. they handle very nicely actually, i used to have stock sized 31" all terrains and the swampers ride smoother.

    SWAMPERS RULE!!

    Gotta love that. I've been considering Swamper SX's just for the toughness, instead of a really quiet ride and better handling, this gives me hope.
