    Anyone out there have experience with the Swamper TSL SX's? Thinking of getting a set as a second set to run on my hummer rims. Size 38x12.5x16.5

    Tread pattern is similar to the regular TSL but why are they different from them to get the SX rating?

    I am tickled with my Hawgs just want to put the hummer rims to use instead of sitting in a box at work.

    They are steel belted.

    SX's probobally have the toughest sidewall of any tire short of a big michelin, along with the added sidewall tread.

    i think that they are the best tire that interco makes. they just need to start making them in 40's and 42's. if they did i would be one happy person. i would get the 14.5's instead of the 12.'5 because the 12's are not that wide and dont look good at all :grin:
