    <font color=blue>SSR's are good, TSLR's are better. I have the radial Swampers. They're just loud enough to be good, and they ride nicer than my crappy BFG AT's that they replaces. If you plan on doing rocks, stay away from anything radial. I'm not to impressed with the radials sidewalls.

    Check out the product review section on the main page. Steve sure seemed impressed with the SSR's.

    Steve was until he had two of them blow out. I would say if you arent going any bigger that 35s I would go with the Goodyear MTRs. They work great on the street awsome in the rocks and mud. If you go bigger than 35s then go with radial TSLs for the street and SXs for the rocks.

    I guess I haven't been keeping up. The Goodyears sure did well in the mud tire test that 4WOR did a while back. I really wish they would have included the SX's in that test. I also wish Interco would make some 38 inch SX's for a 16 or 17 inch wheel.

    Yea the goodyear places 3rd in the mud test. Also if you look at the rockcrawling championships most of them are running the goodyears.

    Where was I when steve had his 37's blow out? Last I heard here and on Pirate was the probs seemed to occur with 35x12.50R15's cause of the side wall combineded w/ low pressure use off rad and then higher speeds for long periods of time.

    SSR's are great on the street, no hum that I can hear (old age hearing maybe? [​IMG]) - best mud tire on the street I have driven. Pretty good on sand too.

    I had very few choices in a 16" rim when I bought these but am happy with them. Figure by the time they wear out MT/R's will be available in 35x12.5x16.
