    odd that Interco doesn't list it on their site and the details page is just liek the specs off of Interco's site. Thats crazy cheap for a 37 radial of that design. I can't really weigh in yet except to say I wouldn't want a Radial.

    depends what you mean, performance? in everything I would say the IROK. Mileage? hands down the SSRs.

    37x12.5x15 Irok $215
    37x12.5x15 MTR $205
    37x12.5x15 SSR $215
    36x12.5x15 TSL-R $188

    Doesn't look crazy cheap to me.

    The only thing I don't like about Swampers is they don't last long enough if you do alot of on road driving as well as off road. I really like the Irok's, but I still think the Ground Hawg's will out last Swampers.

    [/ QUOTE ] Not everybody can afford 2 sets of tires, one for on road, and one for off road. Wish I could, but I can't, so I have to go with just the one set, and I belive the Denman's will out last Interco's.

    [/ QUOTE ] That's why I went with the Denman Ground Hawg radials. They wear like iron, they'll last a lot longer then Swampers would for all the interstate driving I do. Plus they do really good in the mud. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I hear ya, I'd like to have some Swampers, but I have to build on a limited budget. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif So the Hawg's fit my needs better.

    Iv been running their Gumbo mudders for almost 2 years (minus deployed time) and they are a hell of a tire, when we went to Uhwarrie i didnt even air them down and they did great not to mention that i could run 60 mph to get there and home, pretty good for a 40" tire, and they still are over half on the tread life
