They are both very nice aggressive tires. I friend of mine has 40" Iroks on his jeep, and they are amazing, but personally I like the TSL's better. But that is just a preference thing. I have heard great things about both tires...

tsl are better than irok for mud
iron are better for road driving
bogglers are best for mud and you should expect about 30k out of them if rotated properly

If you drive on the road don't go for the bias's. The Irok's do not do as well in the mud as TSL's they are better on rocks. TRXUS MT have the best manners all around. Still a good mud tire, but they last well on the road and do great in snow and ice. One of the best ice tires I have ever driven. One of the guys I wheel with weekend warriors his on rocks and they grip as good as any MT. If you are wanting a pure mud tire a bias bogger is about as good as it gets. They will wear quick as hell though. Balance wise you could get a radial set of TSL's but you loose a lot if the heavy sidelug that makes it a better mud tire going to radials.

here they all are side by side



the bias tires have a lot more bite to them. In all honesty I don't think the radial TSL is worth it over the TRXUS MT you gain way to much in all around performance for the slight loss in mud. I personally wheel on a set of bias 33x12.50R15 TSL's and they get the hell beat out of them, they don't last for shit.

Don't waste your money get some bfg km2! Swampers are for offroad only they last only 30000 miles after half tread they suck in the mud. I know to many people that regret buying them. Mud/offroad truck only.

TRXUS MT's will eat a set of KM2's and they do last a good bit over 30K not all swampers are the same

Your comment doesn't even all make sense together they suck for mud but they are good for mud/offroad trucks only? Ever run a set yourself?
