    What's is all your opinions on the Super Swamper SSR Radial (35x12.50x16.5) tire. Shawn give me some very good infor. on the Thronbird that I didn't know, so I want everyone's opinions on the SSR tires. I live in the snow country so (like Shawn informed me siping the tire would be better) for me and I agree with him. What's ya all opinion's Thank's for any help.

    I have 33/12.50/15 Swamper SSR's they grab great in mud and wear good on pavement. The tires are about a year old and I have 50% tread left. Any more ???? let me know!

    So how many miles have you put on them in that year? Do you rotate them frequently? How are they on wet pavement and just on the road in general? I have a friend who is looking for some tires in 33x14.5x15, and the SSR's are his only real choice other than Mickey T's[​IMG][​IMG]. He's in England so I am doing the shopping for him.

    I'm trying to decide between the SSR's and the new BFG MT's for my next tires. I know a lot of people running SSR's and they love em. They're already siped, but a little more wouldn't hurt. They're awsome in the snow and on wet pavement. If the new MT's are as great as they're supposed to be, it's going to be a tough decision.

    So these tires are pretty good? I'd heard they weren't so hot. How's the noise? Like AJMBLAZER asked, how many miles, rotations, etc.?
