    What's the difference between the TSLs and the SSRs street handling wise and is one softer than the other? Have friend with good hook up so money isn't an issue right now! Thanks. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I'm gonna run TSL's. Not sure if radials will really make that much of a difference though.

    If it's going to spend more time on road than off, you will definately want the radials

    Towing with Swampers.... hmm...

    I guess the radials. But be ready for real fast wear while towing.

    I'm with ken on this one, swampers won't last long if you tow with them. If it were me, and it was a daily driver/tow rig that saw mainly street miles, I'd get some BFG's. They should last quite a bit longer than any Swamper.

    What kind of truck? If it's a real tow rig, go with Michelins. Save the swampers for your trail rig.

    Re: Need Votes On Tires NOW! Buying Tomorrow!

    Here is the deal, I can get any set of swampers for $500(That's 5 Tires!) ANY SIZE!!!!!!! I really need new tires for the tow/daily driver! It really doesn't tow much yet, cause I don't have the trailer yet! I already got my tires for my other two trucks, it's just that he can get me an awsome deal on Swampers!!!!! Therefor, the swampers are cheaper!!! I'm lookiing for a good road handling tire! That might see some towing! Sounds like SSRs last the longest, but a lot of you have used the TSL Radials and like them! Why should I go TSL Radials over SSRs, Or vise Versa!!!!!!!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Re: Need Votes On Tires NOW! Buying Tomorrow!

    If you want road handling tires that last a long time, then either of those is probably a bad choice. But everyone has said that already... I have a solution, get the SSRs and then sell them to me for a slight markup and go buy some good ATs. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
