    i have a set of 38.5x14.5x16.5 tsl sx on my blazer right now and am looking to get a new set of tires, it is my daily driver and it sees alot of pavement and gravel roads, and usually lots of mud on the weekends, i would like to stick to about the same size, no bigger than 39.5 though, what is the best tire for my case? thanks

    Yeah, don't count out the ground hawg. I hear they wear even better than a TSL if you're looking for *long* life. I don't know if they perform as well?

    [/ QUOTE ]The will out last most tires. In the mud the Ground Hawg's out preform the TSL (IMHO), but not the Boggers. On the rocks, I'd have too give it to the TSL's.
