Got a line on some Swamper TSLs any good?

I only wheel it 10 times a year, what are they like on the pavement? Currently I am running 35x12.5 BFG AT. The swampers are 35x10.5 and would be mounted on my stock Rubi wheels.

Opinions please. They are near new, all 4 for $600.

I'm guessing they are the SX Radials?

They'r going to be noisy as all get out and will likely wear very fast on the road due to the aggressive tread pattern.

TSLs are great off road tires, I only see folks running them off road so there could be a reason for that.

Worst riding and loudest tire on the street ever made.Great for offroad.Rednecks love the loud road noise where I live.They let their wives drive their Jeeps with those tires.That way they'll hear them a mile away when they're cheating.It gives them time to get the GF out of the house.YeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaaw.

My bad, I meat to say :"I assume they are the radials and not the SXs".

EDIT: However, it appears that only the Boggers come in 35x10.5.

That being said, they are horrible on the road!

All the hillbilly's where I live have those thornbird crap TSL tires.I have no clue about the different tires because I would never buy a tire with a tread like that if my Jeep EVER saw the street.
