Ok,
I have got my choices down to the:
TrXus MT 31x10.50R15LT
LTB 31x11.50-15LT
TSL Radial 31x9.50R15LT
BFG Mud 31x10.50-15

How many km's do you think i will get out of those tires?

They will be going onto a suzuki sidekick as a daily driver to and from school everyday and what not. I know the bfg's will last longer but I want swampers. Do you really think the swampers will wear fast with the light weight of a trackick?

Please give your opinion on those tires.
thanks alot guys, ohh btw: can anyone get a gooder deal on any of those tires?:D

radial swampers last forever ... not the ssr ... my buds got them in 33s on his toy three years this sept still 80 % easy [5][5]... my .02c all will last on ur unit for a while but if ur 90% road use they balance good and look better than mt's [cheers]

depends how aggresive of a tire you want to run.

I really like the look of the LTB. I have never run them, but they look like an improvement on the standard TSL. I ran 33x12.5 tsl radials on my old 4runner and got about 50,000km out of them. Only downside to the LTB vs TSL is the ltb is a bias ply, but on a light right like a zuki I don't think you'll notice any of the negative effects of bias tires (cold flat spots etc). Bias usualy have stronger sidewalls.

but if you want something less agressive like an MT then go with the trxus MT over the bfg for sure

[stupid] ... but mostly steet driven ..... and the truxus is to soft ...well robbie worn the hell out of his in 6 months in his tj, i mean he does drive it hard but still and they are only 33's [16]

LTB for sure

I got a set of LTB's and the rubber is quite soft. maybe a bit too soft for the road but awesome for the trails. good price tho. if your planning to do as much street driving as wheeling, I'd prolly go for the bfg's or the trxus's if your cheap. my DD sammi has bfg at's and not even a hint of wear after a year 1/2 of daily use.

How much milage will you realistically put on it as a DD?



I think you should get baby boggers.

youngun
08-24-2006, 07:17 PM
well, i like the boggers but i think they are too heavy of a tire and will grab or chew in the mud to much for my little 1.6l to turn em.

I will probably put on about 12,000-17,000km's a year

So you guys all sound like you think the tsl or tsl radial would be best?

hey tyson go with some tsl swampers

thats what mine is going on next

highwaystar
08-24-2006, 08:13 PM
I would go the radial route if you must do interco. my first choice is bfg muds but thats just me.

I was very suprised how my radial super swampers wore. they lasted me the summer and still have fairly good tread, and i bought them used! that included several road trips. rocks sure rip chunks out of them though. maybe they do too all tires? it seemed worse on these than my old bfg muds. maybe cuz they are more aggressive? i dunno.

they are loud as hell also which is pretty cool for awhile but then it gets annoying.

oh and all swamper tires are manufactured out of the same compound of rubber so quicker wear is due too tread style

friend of mine has 31x10.5 swamper radials on his sammi with a rear locker for 5 years daily driven on the street and they are still over 80 percent

I say if ya have the coin go with the tsl radials im sure you will more than happy with em do it right the first time [cheers]

youngun
08-24-2006, 10:18 PM
ok, well, depending on price it will be the tsl for sure radial or not.

anyone want to get me a price on those for 4?

I have the LTB's on my sami and they are great for the mud,downside is
the veh.doesn't weigh eough for them.I drive on the road at 15psi and
the sidewall won't flex till your down to like 4psi.Also they are not so
street friendly,I used to flat tow it on radials at any speed,however with
the bias it tends to wander behind me above 90kmh.Mine's not a dd so
overall I'm satisfied with em but I would recommend a radial for a dd.

anyone want to get me a price on those for 4?ty it does not take long to change maybe try a dd set and a play set.rims are cheap tires are not.with two sets you will get a lot more life out of your boggers (baby boggers) I know you really want boggers mmmmmm[cheers]

actually I heard the LTB's are manufactured in india and use a different compound which is why they are soo cheap.

maybe i will get some tsl's and just used them in the bush and get some used 31's on the street? sounds like a good idea?

that would be ur best bet if ya can swing iut yo...

08-25-2006, 11:18 AM
ok, after reading alot I have decided it would be a pain to switch off tires all the time so im going to get either the radial tsl's or the tsl's depending on the price difference. I'm young so i don't mind noises, or a harsh ride.

then get the ltbs.

deeper lugs, last forever even on heavier rigs

08-25-2006, 11:28 AM
Grab a set of wheels to mount the tsl on and then just swap them on when you want to go out wheelin then you dont have to worry bout nuttin [cheers] man git er done

[cheers] I just put a lift and tires on my yj, after alot of reading, talking to friends, and lookin around on the net, I ended up going with 33x12.5x15 tsl super swampers (the bias, not the radials) I love them![36] I cant speak for tire wear cause they have only been on fer a week but, they dont seem any worse cold, after sitting over night, then my radial tsl's were. And, its Zuk not a sports car so who cares if they are gonna handle the street as well as a radial, or even an mt? They do handle way better then I expected them to. [cheers]

maybe look into the ltb's, they are the cheapest swamper i have heard, is that right?

08-25-2006, 12:04 PM
same price my man..or very close..

I have the 31-11.50-15 LTBs on a CJ7, and although they are noisy, and kinda handle bad sometimes, I REALLY like them. They look great, and I have noticed almost no wear in the last 2 months.... like MINIMAL, over 8000km on them now. One thing I have noticed is that on grooved pavement, it's like driving on ice, and I don't even wanna know what driving on ice is like with them. Off road, they really really work well. They are on my DD now, and although I am not a BIG fan of them on the road, they aren't as bad as they could be. Take a minute and decide where you want them to work the best. If you are gonna go wheeling very rarely, then probably go for a radial, but if you don't wanna get stuck, get some. And for the price, I would buy another set.

youngun
08-27-2006, 07:58 PM
yea, i think it is between the LTB's and the plain tsl

dude youll love the noise, i love the sound of boggers, and honestly the bogegrs im running have been on BAMs truck and mine for well over a year and have almost two whole summers on them, i also have a detroit in the rear and its my daily driver, and wear is not really noticeable, its maybe 25% worn, which is nothing, plus you got a zuki that weighs atleast 500 lbs less, go with the most aggressive tire and ina few yearas you will be making enough money to buy another set (although you wont need to for wear)

Delta Mud Tracs
http://www.deltatire.com/elements/tires/mudtrac.jpg
31X10.50R15
20/32 depth
excellent wear. great on street, trails & mud

only downside is that if you're too ruff on them the side lugs will rip.
made from same rubber as procomp tires.

i got mine from unlimited tire

Hmmm... this VS. Swampers... tough call.

swampers are dumb.
the only interco i would concider is the ltb i guess, but even then i dunno.
if i had the bucks i'd go with a commercial tire rather than a consumer tire.
