    hey guys, im lookin at either 35x14.50 SSRs or 36x14.50 TSL radials, Price is about the same.These are for a DD thats a weekend warrior, well its getting there. According to the 4wheeloffroad tire test, the SSRs did better in mud than the bias TSLs, so i kinda like them, but i dont know how the radial ones compare with the SSRs. which would u choose?

    thanks for your opinions

    hmm 55% after 15k miles? i was hoping they would be better than that. have you rotated them or anything? maybe the 35s would be better?
