i need some help with this

i was wondering how many miles i could get out of tsl radials and wild country's and which one would be better for me.

i do most of my driving onroad and i do some offroading.

i don't mind how loud the tire is( actually i want a tire that roars some)

a local tire store has wild countrys for about 150 a tire and i can get the TSL's on 4wheelparts.com for 136 a tire.

which one would be better for me and which one do you like more.

Also what do the TSL radial really look like cause 4wheelparts.com shows a different tire that what natltire.com does.

I dont have either and have never even heard of the wild country ... but the super swamper tsl radial, is a well self proven tire, makes more noise than i would want, but again dont expect to get very many miles oput of them, consider yourself lucky to get 20-25 thousand out of them... i run goodyear wrangler mtr's on a 97 4x4 5.2 club cab, and i cant complain, havent found a hole i couldnt climb out of of yet, even in deep mud they pulled me out while i was towing someone else who got stuck up a hill

One more thing, with the tsl's you have to pay extremely close attention to your tire pressure, only run the suggested tire pressure and check it at least once a week, running low pressure in those bad boys on the highway is bad news

I know that you said that you have never heard of them before but by looking at them tell me what you think of them.

hey guys, i have a good friend that has regular TSL's on his ford and he said that as long as they were touching the ground that they would make his truck go. and i was wondering if the TSL redials were about like that.

If they are worth it i am thinking about getting some TSL radials.

Also take a look at this tire, it is on 4wheelparts.com and it says it is a TSL redial, but it don't look like it.

here's the url:

what size tire u gunna be runnin. If its like a 31 or so then go with mud kings or bfg mt's even though i hate mud kings but that small they do good. If you are getting like 33, 35, etc then get the tsl radial, bgf mt's, or maybe groundhawgs. But in my opinion mud kings suk and they warp but wild countries tread patter is horrible, they suk dont get them.

just a thought, but you might go to www.tires.com and follow the steps and you will get to look at numerous off road tires and read what people who drive them have said about them.. btw.. when i bought my MT/R's i only paid around $135 a tire and that was 2 months ago.. from discount tire.. (same as Tires.com)

Brian22, boy i don't know what you've been smoken but it must be working. I went there and the MT/R's where like $170 each.

i got to thinken and i think i am going to go with 32x10.50 TSL radial's. I just wish that they came in 11.50 or 12.50's. I wouldn't mind haveing the SSR radial's and they come in 32x11.50 but they are like $180 each and the TSL's were like $135 each.

hey guys, i have another question for yall. Ok, i went to a local tire shop today and ask what kind that they had or could get and they said they could get some called Summit Mud Dawgs. i have never heard of them before then and that showed a pic of it and the tread looked like the wrangler MT/R's. And the best part is that he priced them for $572 for 33x12.50 mounted and balaced.

But my question is, have any of yall ever heard of it and if so, are they any good.

thanks for all of the information that you have given me, also a set of 33x12.50 MT/R's ready to roll around here is around 900 bucks for the cheapest place. Also i called the guy back about the mud dawgs and he said that they were on backorder untill the end of july so i'm gonna go with the 32x10.50 super swamper TSL radials.

But if you or any one else has anything to say about what i'm getten then they better say it before tonight around 10 pm, cause that is when i'm gonna order my new, swampers, procomp wheels, and my body lift. thanks again for all the help with this.
