    my friend is planning to buy a new set of off road tires but he doesn't know which ones yet some of his choices are mt baja claws, super swampers tsl radials, or some mt rock crawlers. He cares more about off roading. and he would like them in the size 35x14-15 on 15" rim. if there are any more good tires that you know of please post.

    what kind of terrain are they to be used on??? im not a big fan of the claws, mtr's are only available up to 12.50 wide, so i would go with the swampers... mtr's are awesome too though for their width... swampers would be best for mud,or basically anything,mtr's are good in rocks, and claws are... well... i dont really like 'em

    The GoodYears are the choice,great rock tire,decent in mud and long wearing.Kinda hard to beat the Swampers when it comes to mud,though.I would suggest the GoodYears.Mike

    If he's running mud, stay away from anything Mickey Thompson. Esp. Baja Claws. they may look aggressive, but looks can be decieving. Swampers are one of the best for mud. MTR's are excellent on rocks.

    You might want to look into Pro Comp's mud tire. I have them and they are awsome. They have outstanding wear and great road handling characteristics. And they are great in any off road condition. They run about the same as any of the others but will give you the best results in that tire size. If you were going to punch out of the 35 bracket then the tsl radials are the way to go.

    If it's gonna see alot of offroading, definitely go with the swampers.

    Fill in your profile about location, type of truck (might be someone local to you who knows of a deal or can help you)..... that'll help. Then what about the budget and really what exactly does he plan to do for sure... like sand, mud or rocks etc... ? Once you know that that'll help a lot to be able to figure out what to go for! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
