    I have a chance to buy a set of 33x12.50 15 Super Swamper TSL Radials. These tires are brand new and still have the little nubbies on them. The question is that the sidewall pattern on these tires are differant from a set of 36X12.50 that I saw. Just wondering if these are a new version of the tire or some old discontinued tire. FYI they are not the SSR version, cause they are clearly marked TSL Radial and not SSR. Thanks for info anybody can give me!!!!

    The SSRs are not marked on the sidewall, they still say TSL, atleast the last two sets I saw did. If it has sipes in the tread then they are SSRs.

    The TSL Radial has a different sidewall look than the regular TSL. I went with the 36" TSL for this reason.

    I'm aware of the differances of the regular TSL and the radial version, but this one has a differant sidewall than the TSL Radial and is also labeled "radial". It kinda looks like the TSL SX sidewall, but its not cause the SX doesn't come in the 33x12.50 size. I know it is not a SSR, cause the tread is note siped. Guess I will call Interco Tire in the morning and see if they can shed some light on this mystery tire. I was only gonna use these tires on a temporary basis until I finish my build up. Then I plan to go to the 36x12.50 Radial like yours. BTW do you have any more pics of your rig?? I just received a set of those ARE Black steel wheels too!! They look way sweet!!!

    just a thought. whenever you do go up to the 36's you might just wanna ride over to the interco factory here in louisiana and pick em up. its a little cheaper then. not if its terribly far though. they also make ground hogs there too.
