    I'm ready to purchase my first new new set of 36-37" mud tires.
    What's the difference between the SSR Radial, TSL Radial, SX Radial And the TRXUS Mud Radial?

    Is the IROK better than the above three?

    What would you reccomend for 40% off road 60% pavement use?

    There are more then just Super Swampers out there. Granted, the TSL and the Bogger are some great tires. I personally own Denman Ground Hawg 2's, but not everybody likes the noise they make going down the hi-way. Check out Nebraska Tire for Light Truck Tires. They have some cheap prices.

    Personaly my next set of tires are gonna be IROKs, not to concerned about wear as they will see minimal pavement. Also as a side not, they now make the IROK in a Radial if your worried about wear.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My next set of tires will be one of the 3 following sets.

    1. 37x12.5x15" MTR's
    2. 38x12.5x15" TSL's
    3. 37x12.5x16 SSR's

    Don't know which yet. It will depend on where I am living I think. If I live in Colorado I will get a Swamper of some kind probably but if I stay in Arizona I will stay with the MTR's. (currently run 35" MTR's) It all depends on what I feel like when I have the cash in hand and if my truck is going to be a DD or trail only truck.

    I am all for the SSRs, I have run the 37x12.5s and currently running the 38x15.5s and they are awesome, work well on the streets and awesome in the mud. Drove 6 hrs, round trip this Saturday, down to the 4x4Iron shop and there wasn't a single problem with them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Quiter too, than a regular SSR

    TSLs.

    I don't know why everyone has to try to get all fancy with tires...the best ones if you ask me are the ones that have been on the road the longest.

    TSLs are the best tires I have ever tried.

    I was confused on the SX, it's listed as "steel belted", but is a bias ply tire.

    Thanks for all of the replies and votes. I really appreciate everybody offering their opinions and experiences.

    SX's in my opinion are the roughest tire on the street you can buy. They have extremely tough sidewalls and shake, wobble very badly. I have ridden in a few trucks with them because the 33x15.50 on weld 14's is a VERY popular combo with the new truck crowd around here.
