Ok im going to be getting a set of tires for my jeep soon(right after i put my control arms in) and im just wondering if i can get some first hand experience on these three tires that i have in mind. Which are(all in 31x15x11.5 size)

the LTB, Truxus, and the normal TSL.
I know it comes down to personal choice in the end, but any help would be awsome. I dont drive my truck all the time mabey every second weekend. Usually up harrison sylvester or anywhere pretty much in the lowermainland, but i do want to do a few long hauls somewhere. Iv checked out the interco site and compared everything on the tires to one an another, just looking for some experience on the tires from anyone who has run any of the top three, that being said thanks for the in put, hopfully it will help me make my choice[cheers]

yup tsl's are gooder but consider how much time you spend on the road as any interco tire will wear fast.


but i do hear that the truxus are pretty good allround [cheers]

i would stay away from the bias ply if u want to highway it man.....i run those yokohama MT on heavy C and really like them, but im going bigger and they dont make bigger than 315/75go fuck yourself so i wont be going with them again. they last forever(take more burnouts than my BFG anyday) they would look good on your rig and are very well priced, i got my my 315s for under 1000 taxes in! they also rode really nice, good comfort and when i air down they work really well, but the same with most tires

Thanks guys, ya i'll prob be on the road about 50% of the time, doing mostly trails and rocks, not so much mud bogging. Just mainly looking for a good all around trail tire, with ok road manners.

I run 36" TSL Radials & they are great. Good road manners & so far so good offroad. They are wearing very well. I drive my truck 2-3 times per week.

go with the ltb but get the 10.5 wide for better on road manners and the lugs for wheelin. I ran some 34 x 9's on my bronco back in the day when it was smaller an they dig hard

Sweet thanks guys, Ya i was thinking the LTB more or less, just wanted to get other ppl's opinion or if they've had any bad experiences with any of em.
My buddy has the TSL radials on his ranger, and hes not liking them so much, i dont know why they seem to hook up pretty good, but then again i think he goes through more tires then anyone i know:happy0045:

how much of a driver are you? the ltb's are not a ballance tire if u don't mind ajusting speed or haveing a shake now and again they are a kick ass tire tough as hell deep lugs way better than a reg tsl off road ... imo ...

and there one of the cheaper swamper's as well ...



i would have no prob's having them on a dd myself but not everyone is up to it [cheers]

Pretty sure the LTB's have the deepest tread. Almost a full inch of depth.
