    Interco\'s TSL tread wear?

    Hey, I was wondering if TSL's tread would wear down quickly if I used them for DD tires? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    If you're not going to use your truck off road, you DEFINITELY don't want loud, obnoxious, fast wearing, bias ply super swampers.

    You know Tim, Im sure you meant well by your reply but that statement is not all that helpful to the person. It really does make you look like an a$$. It wouldve been helpful for you to just say no, the TSLs dont wear well at all. Even that answer would have been way better than the smartass comment that you had to make.

    Nothin personal Tim.....just makin an observation. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Haha as soon as I hit reply I saw your 2nd post. That was the answer I was lookin for /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    In all honesty, I wanted to express my seriousness in that post, which is why I said that.

    Asking if swampers wear fast is like asking if ice will melt in 120* heat.

    not trying to be a dick here, but Is the search not working? i bet if i go back a few pages i could find atleast three sets of questions that are all the same, whether it be about 10 bolts, Tire Wear, or Lift and tire size..........

    Re: Interco\'s TSL tread wear?

    I've got the 38" TSL Radials on my '90 Sub and I can't complain about the tread life or handling. I pull a car hauler every once in a while and it does fine with the extra load too. So far I think I've got about 20K miles on them and over half of the tread left. A friend of mine had the 37" SSR's and was getting great tread life out of those too. Get what you want so you don't regret it later.
