    Looks like yet another variant of the TSL. A little narrower in the pic.

    Heard of them. Ordered them. Have them.[​IMG][​IMG]!! Well I dont, but I got a set for my cousins Expedition. 33x13.50x16. I can shoot a pic and e-mail it to you if you want. They are pretty bad ass lookin' tires. Real aggressive. Basically an improved version of the TSL according to Interco. They look like them alot, but the lugs are a "little" different. They are loud (sing down the highway and around town) and have the "flat spot syndrome". Only had them on for about a week. GOOD LUCK ON GETTING THEM NO ONE knows what the hell they were as of 3 weeks ago. Not national tire, not 4wpw, no one. Everytime I called to ask about them, I had to tell them what they were supposed to have according to Interco. I went throught the Offroad Barn or ORB and let me tell you, Jeff is THE MAN. He is the one who got me the LTB's. BEFORE anyone even knew they were supposed to have them. Anyways, if you have any questions or want some pics let me know.

    I heard they were made in India or something crazy like that. Not an improvement, but just another market for Interco to get into. A foregign market where huge tires are not wanted. So, these are an alternative. I dont think large sizes will be available.

    Dont know if this is true or not though.

    Dont know about the whole India thing, but your are right on them not making the bigger sizes. The biggest is the 34x10.5, thats it no plans for bigger sizes in the future accorinding to the guy at Interco.

    I'm sure they will fit fine, just sucked in a little. I can get a pic of them on a 10" wheel and you can see how they look, then you can judge how they would look on an 8" wheel. Let me know if you want a pic.

    I'll try to get one tonight if it stops raining. Actually I think I have one, but I'll take another better pic with them on the truck. Check your e-mail in about 5 minutes.

    Okay, I thought that might be them. I remember seeing those in FourWheeler in the tire tests a while ago. They were originally supposed to be made in India, but that didn't work out. I talked to a rep last year I guess and he told me this, and I think he said they were looking into having them made in Mexico.

    Oh, I wasnt saying to pass up or anything. I just heard that was why they were cheaper, and thats why they were not going to made in larger sizes.
