like title said says can get a good deal on them but how do they perform offroad
They seem to perform good. I have the 13x38x16 bias ply and they are about as agressive as you can get. Mine are mounted on 16x10 wheels...
You can't go wrong with a Super Swamper TSL. It's a classic and it will do whatever you want it to do. That said, I would go for the wider sizes. If I had a choice, I would run the 38.5x14.5 TSL/SX on a 10" wide wheel. If you run 12.5" wide tires, I'd use a 8 or 8.5" wide wheel.
i ran them before i got my iroks and they do awesome off road
There are 3 of us in our club that run the 13/38-16 TSL's (basically the same size as the 38x12.50-15's). They really seem to work well here in the Midwest where we have lot's of slick and muddy hillclimbs and will run circles around the 35" MT/R's I had previously.
Another advantage to these skinnier tires is that they seem to balance okay and ride/handle decent on the streets. All three of us could cruise comfortably at 70 mph on the highway with no vibration issues.
If the price is right run them, they are good tires. I would eventually like to run that exact tire or a 37" MTR. Depends on how much street driving my truck will see when I get around to that point.
