Im looking for tires that im going to use on my trooper ,i was thinking bfg a/t but now ive decided to get rollers instead ,so i minds well go all out and i got an offer
33/12.50,s/15r super swamper's brand new not mounted for 240$ a tire and i can mount and balance them for free because if have the machine to do it.


Is this by any chance a great deal? :confused0006: I havent got around to check out other prices, i want to see what every one else thinks about it since half the wheelers here have used them.

don't even try to balance them. you'll just throw weights when you take it off road anyway

and radial doesnt say much, irok radials? tsl radials..ect

TSL radials balance just fine. I had mine on my old 4runner ballanced an they were great on the street. Got 50-60,000km outta them too. Not sure on the price though as I paid $425us for mine used 95% with a 5th brand new spare all on rims that I sold for $100 after I bought them, plus I sold the spare for $150, so really I paid only about $200 for them all. Just keep your eyes out for use tires for sale if ya want the best deal. I found mine on Pirate. Had to drive 5hrs to pick them up, but the price was worth it.

Yeah, I had mine Balance as well and they worked fine. I had the weights put on the inside of the wheel.

225 isn't bad for that tire. You can get em from the states for 160 USD+shipping.

However, if you were to get a tire for offroad ONLY I would suggest a bias ply tire, they are slightly cheaper and way tougher.

Also, look at a Super Swamper LTB, limited sizes but they are quite a bit cheaper at about 137USD for a 33x13.50x15LT. Those are wider, cheaper and have deeper tread from new..and tougher.

i second the ltb's. those are good tires. i know folks who run them. all they are are a tsl with bigger second side lugs. i think interco confirms that too

sounds good about the ltb's but i think im goin to run into power issues maybe 2.6L
4 banger i guess in 4 low its alright but other then that if i go wide i think that engine will start to cook a bit ?
