    I just read your review of the Swamper SSR's, and I've got to ask: Does this quote contain a typo?

    "One of the first things we noticed after the SSR's were mounted was how quiet they rode on the highway, the noise level was comparable to BFG All terrains, in fact it almost felt like we were driving a stock truck again."

    Did you accidentally type All Terrain but mean Mud Terrain??
    I read the rest of the review and I can see you're very impressed with these tires. If you're really comparing the noise and on-road handling with BFG AT's, then these tires are probably the closest anyone's come to a truly "all-around" tire!



    **I just re-read what I wrote, and if I sound like I'm making an accusation, I apologize. I'm not making any kind of accusation, I just want to confirm what I'm thinking.

    You read right, they are quiet like my AT's were. If your looking for a radial these things rock. The only negative I've heard is they don't last long, but I won't know that for another year or so, I do have 4,000 miles on them already though.

    I know other people here are running them and maybe they can give some more insight on noise and wear.
