    Strongest sidewall strength- Who makes it? I\'m sick of cutting sidewalls..

    Cut 2 more this past weekend doing lower terminator. I run 8-15 psi depending.....Daily (kind of) driver. I run rocks in desert and forest terrain. Cut 2 BFG muds several years back on my truck, and now 2 of my Cooper STT's on the K5 are toast, with less than 10k miles. Both my trucks have 35x12.5x15. I need sidewalls that will hold up. I hate wondering if the damn warranty will be honored when I turn em in....

    All opinions welcome!

    I have heard the MTR's are pretty good on sidewall strength. But I have also heard the same thing about the BFG's. I always by my tires at Discount. They have always honored my warranty. They never even questioned how I did it, or what happened. The only time they won't honor them is if they are almost bald.

    The 36X12.5X15 TSL has the strongest I've ever seen. The bad thing is that they are bias ply.

    Either the TSL or TSL/SX. Not the radial versions either...

    How did I know you were going to say that/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif... Has anyone actually seen a sidewall on a swamper get cut on the rocks?

    yea, I've seen swampers tear up just like anything else, just not as often... the SX's are about as tough as your going to find though.

    Fred,

    Don't feel bad, I also cut a sidewall this weekend on my ProComps.

    What a bummer, I am going to the 37" MTR asap.

    The little voice in the back of your head says" Buy a pack of blades for the Sawzall and get the 42's" lol.

    NoRulz... what is wrong with swampers on a daily driver? i have no problem with my 36x12.50 TSLs on the road, and my suburban is a daily driver.

    Rob, it's time for axles & 38s at least... you're gonna do it sooner or later anyway, so just bite the bullet...

    Sub: nothing really, but for drivers, especially with the distance FWP has to do to get to any of the trails in the Phoenix area I think he'd be happier with something else. I could be wrong though.
