    You won't get as many miles on a SuperSwamper as you would on a BFG Mud or Dunlop MudRover type of radial.
    Interco uses a softer rubber on their tires and they will be warn at and around 25,000 miles. I am going with the TSL Radial but my rig is not a daily driver so 25k is a few years for me...........

    Re: SSR\'s

    In response to your post, I have run the BFG muds and they will out perform and out last the SSR. I however just converted to the GM 14 bolt and 16 inch wheels and chose to go with the SSR because BFG didnt make the size I wanted for my rims. The are a 35x12.5x16, and are a 10 ply (heavy tire) but so far not to bad on ride and wear, but it took a lot to balance them unlike the BFGs I had that only took a max of 3.5 ounces.

    Re: SSR\'s

    yea see thats the reason i want swampers cuz of the sizes they come in i want a 35x14.50 on a 15 inch rim and bfg only comes in 35x12.50 and i dont like that pizza cutter look i want some nice tall fat tires so swampers is the way to go but ride and noise dont concern me at all the louder the better its the wear that bothers me

    Re: SSR\'s

    I have run both BFG Mud-Terrains and currently have SSR's 33/12.50r15 and I would buy another set of SSR's but the cost is a little too high for me right now. I liked both tires but you can't beat the look and performance of a Super Swamper tire....

    Re: SSR\'s

    I don't remember when I bought them. I think about 2 years ago. They wear almost even, and ride alot smoother than the BFG Mud's I had before. I drive almost 90% on pavement and the Blazer is a daily driver.
