    What do you guys think betwen the tires, 38x12.50 TSL vs. 38x12.50 SX, vs. 38.5x14.50 SX? I am trying to decides between the tires. I do rockcrawling and thats it since it doesnt rain here in AZ. Also the trails are narrow and full of sharp rocks. Any help is greatly aprieciated.

    <font color=blue>I would go with the SX's, they have stronger sidewalls. The tread on the sidewall helps too

    I would go with the 38X12.5X15 TSL on 8"X15" rims. The smooth sidewalls with 6 ply will help squeeze through those tight spots. While the sidelugs on the SX's help in some situations they will get caught and tear in those tight sharp situations your terrain will give you.
