Are you a complete idiot? Why do you even bother posting negative shit? [16] [16]

Apparently you know something about biasply that I don't - perhaps you should share and increase my knowledge.

I've done some research and the bias tires all tend to have more tread, or..deeper tread.

Maybe you should post some evidence before just calling someone an idiot. I'll be the first to admit when i'm wrong if someone takes a second to offer some kind of argument besides "are you an idiot?"

The first matching size I found was 36X12.50, both on 15 inch rims.

The BIAS tire had 24/32nds of tread, 8 ply face and 4 ply sidewall. OD of 36.3
the RADIAL had 21/32nds of tread, 6 ply face and 2 ply sidewall. OD of 36.2.

Sounds like the bias is a better tire for WHEELING, and I've driven them on the street and they arn't THAT bad..

Oh, and when I said "I'm still getting bias" that was me expressing a personal preference/choice, not me posting anything negative.

The bias are the tire to go with for wheelin -They almost always will have better side walls etc ---------


But for comfort and street ride -radials for sure !

I am making that comment on the fact that Ham already stated its for only 1% wheeling.[16]

Well, a swamper TSL (radial or not) isn't the best choice for a 1% wheeler then now is it? He should get himself some thornbirds or BFG ATs.

Basically it comes down to this: He's buying swampers, he's gonna go wheeling more often. With me. After I buy swampers too.

well at least radial swampers will look good.

personally i have the bfg muds. they wear great on the road and do well on the trails one of a few tires that have 3 ply side walls in there 33's and they dont wear to fast. they aslo make lots of noise which i personally like.

Jeez you guys. Your both preaching to the choir. Yes, all I really need are some plain MT's like my Coopers which have lasted me 4 years.....but.....the truth be known.......when you get to my age the only things that get you hard anymore are Maple Ridge girls and.....Swampers.:cool:

Yeah, they do look nice. And I like the noise too, reminds you that you are driving a truck designed for wheeling, not driving to the office.
