    which would you choose? i do mostly mud, with a trail every now and then. i love the way the iroks looks, but the tsl's tread depth is alot deeper. it is my dd, so road life matters, but dont care bout noise or smooth ride (if i did i wouldnt have bought a sfa truck with leaves. lookin at the 39.5 variety. what do you think?

    I still like tsl's but everyone who has tried them seems to like the irok's. I think life span of the tsl's would be much longer.... I vote tsl's

    1/2 half of tread on tsls is fast wearing. but after that thay wear like iron.


    i have seen 39" iroks new up close. i dont care for the lack of tread depth as to others.

    As the poll is asking which are better in mud, TSLs win hands down.

    I have to go with TSL's, they are the only ones that I have used. IROKs may be in my future though.

    for the mud, TSL's , hands down, no questions asked. I have been to oodles of mud bogs, and have never seen anyone running iroks. You can just look at TSL's and see they are better in the mud. Of course nothing beats boggers..
    I have a set of new TSL's in the garage :D :D :D

    i love how people say tsl's hands down for mud. i have ran BOTH tsl's and iroks and the only place a tsl beats the irok is in street wear. but not by much. i got like 35,000 out of my tsl's and ill get close to 30,000 out of my iroks. the iroks are much smoother on the road and much quieter also. they do awesome in the mud and sand. they do much better in snow and ice then the tsls do. and yes i am talking from experiance with them as i HAVE ran both tires

    also the whole key to getting more life out of them is to run the correct psi not the recomended but the correct psi i run 20-22 psi on the street with mine. also keep them rotated :D
