Tire Question, Very Easy

Ok i was wondering what the most popular Super Swamper TSL tire is, are they good, do they wear to easily, also what would the back spacing be if i were to get 33" tires on 15x10 wheels.

i dont know about the back spacing, but the most popular would probably be the Bogger or the SSR's...
and all super swampers wear easily....

Lots of choices here! First, you have to narrow down whether you want to run bias or radial. The radials are going to be a better on road tire. The bias tend to flat spot overnight. In the morning you'll have to put 10 or so miles on them before they're round again. The other thing to consider is the air pressures you have to run in each. With the bias plies, you need to run less than 4psi in the tires off road to get any flex out of them for maximum traction. At that low of a pressure, beadlocks are almost mandatory. I run my SSRs 10-12psi and that's more than enough sidewall flex. The upside of the bias plies are their sidewall strenght. You probably don't need a spare because you just about "can't" cut a sidewall in these tires. They are the toughest.

Once you've decided between radial and bias, there's two radial TSLs to choose from and I think 3 bias ply TSLs.

well put oz.

bigjeep39,
FWIW, I've personally run the following..

Thornbirds: they suck! Plain and simple!
TSL/SX: awsome tire, but limited sizes
TSL: my favorite all around.
TSL/Radial: my choice if I drove my rig daily.
