    These are the tires that I'm looking at purchasing, I know the SSR is relitaveley quiet on road and the Baja suposidley the complete opposite, but what I'm concearned with is if I can push 90 on the freeway with the Bajas and not die. Also if the SSR can be as good in the mud and snow as the Baja?
    I'm debating between the awesome performance of the Claw and the drivability of the Superswamper.
    I'm looking at getting 35X13.50 with a 15 or 16 inch rim.

    i have never had either of the tires, but i know that the SSR's last longer because 2 of my friends got those 2 tires at the same time, and the SSR's have more tread now [1year later]

    Go with the SSR's. They are suppost to be a much better tire and have heard tons of great stuff about them in snow, ice and rain. I have a personal experience with the Baja claws and they suck IMO... ride like crap... the loudness didn't bother me, but then the guy who had them junked them after about 20k cause they were down to about 1/4 tread
