    Hello I am kinda of undecided about tires. I am going to run 38s or 37s and was lookin into thornbirds and ssr's anyone have these and like em hate em. Just lookin for a lil feedback. I plan on driving alot on the street and alot of sand becuase there ar dunes just a half hour from here but with also see some mud.

    most people here would tell you not to waste your money on "****birds" they are not a very well performing tire most people get them cus they think they look cool but they are not very good tires compared to the rest of the interco line

    Yeah ditto on the Tbirds. I have the SSR's and am very happy with them. They are good for daily driving and wheelin. The are nice on the street. they work real well in the sand if you air down. They are good in the mud too, but not like a Bogger or anything. I have done some pretty nasty mud with mine. The sidewalls are a bit stiff because they are a radial so the aren't as good on the rocks. the siping in the center tread also likes to chunk off if spun on jagged rocks:mad: Good dual purpose tires though IMO. I have about 6000 miles on my 37's and about 5000 on the 33's on my crew cab neither show any wear besides some chunking, but thats not the tires fault:D

    Insert shameless photo whoring here:D

    cool thanks alot i was thinking of running the ssr's and you kinda of made up my mind. everything you said was good is what im going to be using the tires for not to worried about the chunking sense there arnt many rocks around here and i prolly wouldnt run them anyway sense this is going to be a show truck that is capable to. I would be worrying about breakin things on the rocks.
