    Well, first removed the 35" TSLs, way too loud on the road. Bought some good used 35x14.50-16.5 Mickeys from mudfrog, not much quiter than the TSLs, but they do handle much better.

    Just ordered some 35x12.50R-16.5 General Grabber M/Ts. $695 mounted and balanced, should be in monday and have them mounted tuesday. Maybe then I can finally hear the TV that's in the truck /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.

    i am torn between the trusus mts 35x12.50 x 16 or the ssr 37 x 12.50 16 both are 10 ply but the cost is 60 dollar diff. I have the radial swamper 36x 12.5 16 now and i like them but they say either of those 2 are quieter. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I love my SSR's. I just put this on after having 35" SSR's on it before. I have ran BFG MT's ProComp MT's and deciced that I would try the SSR's. WOW way beter handleing and ride. Plus the looks cool factor. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Had them installed yesterday.
    Wow, what a differance /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif. Made a quick run down the highway at 65mph and couldn't even hear the tires! Had I known this before I'd have bought these right off the bat.
    I'll definitely recomend these for someone wanting a quiet/inexpensive mud tire.
