    Is it the same thing as 38x13x16? Is this just a swamper tsl (non radial) thing? Also, how well do these tires hold up?

    Who knows why they list it like that, but that particular tire has a history. It used to be a 37x12.50x15/16/16.5 a long time ago until the 36's came out. Then swamper needed more of a gap between tires, so they changed the stamp, but not the mold. The 38" tire is about an inch taller than a 36x12.5. And that is why. NOw that 37's are the rage, maybe interco should have stayed with the 37" designation?

    Yeah....I listened to Tex on ORC and POR a lot... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
