To mount or not to mount.

I just started getting in my super swampers. I think I might wait till the end of feb. to mount since I won't be doing much wheeling in the winter and I don't want to just wear them down on the pavement. The gsa tires I have are still in good shape so I think I should wait. What would you do?

1hr30min to 2 hours depending. I also have new rims. So I was thinking of keeping the salt off them. So I can enjoy them for one summer before I really trash them. Well more than likely they will get scratched up on some rocks before next winter anyway.

My friend has those on his Cherokee and says they work pretty well. My friends go to the badlands almost every sunday. I would like to go at least once a month with them. I can't wait till march 20th when I plan to go next to try out these new tires.

Having a set of Interco. tires (Swamper TSL / TLS) I speak from my own experience they are great in the slush, snow and stuff. Purchased them last year mid (late) winter and put on about 2-3k miles on them. When spring came washed and cleaned and put away for the warm months. They have now been back on since Oct. and have been wearing decent. I've noticed they are getting a bit noisy(er) and that as they are used the balance is shifting. I'm pleased overall with them, but would not purchase them again. I believe they are a bit to pricey for the poor wear. I think next time I'll try a General Grabber or a Blizzak or the like. Mine came with soft eights and all the goodies to install.

I'm curious to know how those SSR's will fair for you. I've heard alot of mixed reviews on them some good, but most bad. But that's the same thing I got & heard about my Federal MT's and so far they are the best tire I've owned, hands down. My Federals have preformed better then the Maxxis Bighorns and BFG MT's

After you get them mounted set-up a review thread on here for others to see & read. Thats what I did for my Federals and had tons askign about them after running them for a while.

Will do. I plan on abusing them at the bad lands and on the street and local sand and mud holes.
