    I dont know what the expected tread life is but I will put in my .02 on their durability and performance.

    As for 35"sizes and down that I have seen they seem to hold up fairly well to being abused on rocks.The tread seems to resist chunking and the sidewalls hold up fairly well.

    I have 37s and Im happy with them.They grip rocks realy well when aired down and they are too quiet on the street /forums/images/icons/grin.gifMy only complaint is the tread durability.I have about 4 good trips on these tires and I am missing large chunks off of all of the outer lugs.Iv seen other 37s in the same condition so its not just me /forums/images/icons/grin.gif I am happy with the side walls.I am fairly hard on my sidewalls and I gots no cuts in them yet.

    I know someone who has run them on a Hummer (read:big, fat, heavy pig), and the first set of 37's he ran lasted about 45,000 daily driven, never off road (in a Hummer, I know /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif ) truck, but he took great care of them, rotation, balance, and inflation. I would expect 30,000 in something that sees some action once in a while.

    Everything i have seen was near the 30,000 range before replacement. They just have better street manners than TSL's dont necessarily last longer.

    Check out Interco's web page. Also, I think the SSR's last longer than a TSL, but less than a Thornbird...so about the same as a regular TSL radial. Also, they would last longer on a light open diff vehicle and shorter on a heavy locked up truck.
