What do you want to do? If you want a strictly off road wont last long tire but hooks up great tire then get a swamper, if you want something that hooks up but will wear well get the bfg km2 or the goodyear mtr

well I have brand new 34/10.5/15 TSL's the picture are the ones I just got, don't know if I want to put them on, I drive the truck to school everyday about 20 miles and do off road on the weekends so I need something that wears good, but I still want the beefy off road tire.

i wouldnt do it then, they will be nuked in a matter of months, get a good mud terrain like the bfg or goodyear, hanook makes a solid tire, what kind of wheeling are you doing? i dont wanna sound rude, but a close to stock ride really doesnt need a set of swampers, the right tire for your truck will actually help you outperform in mud and stuff than that swamper. the hanooks are notoriously good for underpowered rides in the mud, they have a great ability to hook up and clean at low speeds. same with the bfg km2, it cleans better at a lower rate of speed, and anywhere you want to go in a mostly stock ranger they will take you. notice most comp buggies arent even running stock tsl tires anymore.

Super swamper makes some of the shittiest tires ever made. The thornbird was voted the "Worst Offroad Tire Ever Made" in Four Wheeler magazine.

You can't go wrong with BFG, Pro Comp, or General Tires. I run Mastercraft on my truck:

Swampers with a GIANT tread are horrible Choices for a car driven in the snow or on the road.

If you want swampers, Id get the TSL radial's.

I bought a set and ran them for 5k miles and still looked like new. They preformed great in mud. Also, A friend of mine ran the 33x15.50 on his wrangler for 2 years as a dd and still had lots of tread left.

Nobody ever brags about their Swampers for long lol. Spend the extra few dollars and get a respectable tire that will work on and off the road.
