    4 ply nylon carcass (sidewall and tread) and 2 steel belts across the tread. Is not a radial according to my side wall. Not listed as a Radial just "steel belted". I call em bias ply, they got the flat spots to prove em. :laugh:

    I am looking into the TSL SX's. How do they perform in mud, rock, and sand? I want something around 36x14.50r15. Pro's and con's???

    i've got a set of the tsl sx and im pretty happy with them. haven't had them in the rain on the street or anything, but for mud, hills and some small rocks they have been pretty good to me.

    i love them!!! i just wish they made a 40 or 42 inch version. they are one of the better bias tires iv had in the rain if not the best. on the trail i air down(alot with beadlocks) and even folding on their sides they are awsome. the sidewall stregth is amazing. just wait till you mount a set and youll understand.

    Mud, dirt and rock they kick ass, super strong sidewalls. I have pinched them really badly with the rim on the sidewall and they don't complain. Super stiff sidewalls, needs alot of time to break in. As for sand (I live new Pismo dunes and go out there once in a while) they suck, need alot of HP to get them to float, they like to dig holes and need to be aired down to 5 psi or less to get the sidewall to start to sag. Oh well, I didn't buy them for the sand. I think my next set will be SX's again or IROKs

    SSR is a radial to relatively quiet compared to a bias IROK. the IROK have huge tread void and wear quick on the highway.
