    IMHO I think that it is a toss up between hawgs and TLS's.

    Really?? I've never seen it myself but been told about Hawgs just gumming up in mud and doing jack.

    49" IROKs would probably number 1 nowadays :D

    I think the 49s really win just for the shear dimensions more than the tread design. LTBs may have that too.

    I meant if the tires are all the same size.... I know they all don't come in the same height/ width but they are pretty close. Size is a HUGE advantage when it comes to mud... i've seen 49" baja claws out bog 44" boggers.

    I am trying to decide on what to get for my next tire... hawgs are lookin pretty good but so are tsl radial and ssrs.

    Just to let you know my 44" hawgs measure 41" on a 6000lbs k/5 and a 15"X14" rim. since you know size does matter. :grin:

    They dont make a 49" Claw.

    After the bogger comes the TSL IMHO.

    maybe it was 46".....

    What about SSR's? I think they would get more miles on the road then tsl radials but how do the SSR's do in the mud?

    They do ok in trail riding & moderate mudding, but they aint gonna let you win in any mud bogs.

    I would say for mud the TSL is next in line. I've owned just about every mud tire out there over the years.
