    They will be on the truck tomorrow! Pictures to follow! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    I bought used but near 90% left, 38-13-16" TSL Swampers! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
    Got them for an awesome deal, and I cant wait to run them. We are going wheeling Sunday! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    It should be a good time... however, its snow storming like crazy right now. The roads suck, and we are supposed to get 20cm overnight.

    Later!

    Congrats!

    BTW - Don't you hate a 38 being a 36?

    Huh? The interco site says 37.8" Surely they can't be 36" /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Anyone else confirm this???

    Yes, they're really short. More like 36" from the ones I've seen, and why I didn't buy the set I found.

    Be prepared for D44 breakage if you have good tread though. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Looking to buy some? *wink wink* *nudge nudge* /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Yep they are short, but if I made them I'd call them a 37x12.5x16. They're a nice size between moderate big tire and when you start getting huge at true 38". Sad thing is I have two 38x11x16 boggers for spares and they are not that much taller.

    I'm going to sell the 38's (36's /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif) run the 39" IROKS this summer)

    Oh well at least with 36" tires I wont have to be worried about breaking my 30 spline stubs. Doooh do dooooh

    Well, I havent measured them yet for height. The guy I bought them off was going with brand new 37" MTRs on 15x10s, and with these slightly used TSLs on 16x10 wheels, they stood almost 2" taller than his! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I think he was a little disappointed hehe.
    Oh well... going to bolt these on shortly!

    Tire size is all relative. I have the 13/38-16 TSL's, and while definitely not a true 38" tall they were a solid 3" taller than my 35" MT/R's...which were a solid 2" taller than my 33" BFG muds.

    what a tire measures out to is also dependant on what width rim you use ya know..
