    Hi all, I picked up a pair super swamper tsls for $25 the tires seem to be in good condition with som scufffs on the side wall and pretty good tread. I was wondering how much tread depth the center lugs are supposed to have, These are right around 3/8" deep.
    The tires on my truck now are falling apart, I am now missing 7 of the outer lugs and the chunking is horrible!
    I think I am going to go down and buy two new TSLs to put on the front of the blazer, and put these on the rear.

    I believe the tread depth new on those tires is 27/32", so yours would be a little under half tread.

    once those regular bias tsls hit 1/2 tread thay wear like iron. get a tire grover /hot knife like the racers use. it will bring them back to life with some cutting hear and there.

    my 34x10.5 's have almost 3/4 " on the center lugs. they have about 1500 miles of pavement and rocks on them . there loud and rough riding on the street and I love them.
