I've never personally owned a set, but every jeep I've been in with Swampers has had terrible highway manners.

Had some on a full size truck a couple years ago and they were so bad on the road I sold them to a buddy. Very good off road, but the problems you're having on road is typical with these tires.

I wouldn't run them on the highway. It's just the nature of the tire.

Ya, I had a set of 38x16x15's on my YJ and there was a lot of wobble. I had a tire shop put them on their balancer machine and find the best two and put them on the front and almost all of the wobble was gone that I could feel.

I have a set of 36's Superswamper radials on an early Bronco. They don't wobble. They are pretty noisy and don't inspire confidence when cornering on asphalt. I don't go over about 60 mph with them on the road. They are very good offroad. It's one of those deals where excellence in one arena gives up a lot of performance in the other.

I've had several sets of swampers that ran perfect on the highway, 35" thornbirds, 35" tsl's, 35x16" boggers, 39.5x18" boggers (2 sets), 38x15 tsl xs's (2 sets) all of them ran fine on the highway up to and above 80mph after the first 5 miles of warm up, all of them except the tsl sx's tended to flat spot sitting overnight. They have to be balanced by an offroad shop that has a balancer big enough to do the job right.

True there was a section in 4wheel mag where the trxus mt was #1 out of 5 top mud terrian tires off road and on road. They are the only tires I will ever buy for my daily driver when it becomes a trailer queen I will put 39.5" iroks under it with a 8" skyjacker long arm lift.

I had 32" TSL Radials that never had a shimmy, plus they lasted forever(still had half tread at 30k). I also had 32" TSL-SX, no problems with them either. I usually had them at 29 psi. I currently have 31x11.50s LTBs bias ply on my ZJ, they would shake the dashboard off at 30 psi. I run 20-22psi in them now and they don't shake or flat spot what so ever, the side walls are as stiff as metal but it drives like a boat, you have turn before the curve! If someone ever stole it, I'd probably find it in a ditch around the first curve LOL! I wouldn't recommend bias ply LTBs for daily driving but it can be done with practice.

The TrXus MTs were what I put on after I was done with the TSLs. I love em.

I have run tsl's for years. Just not on a jeep. The last set on my F150 I had balanced with equal. Since I have found that they can be balanced with air soft bbs

I had ss boggers on my last tj and they had the worst on road manors and terrible traction in snow. I hated those things. Oh yeah and the thing sounded like a Boeing taking off every time you moved. I ended up dyna mating the wheel wells to deaden te sound a little

I have 33" trxus's on mine and they ride fine on the highway and are great offroad. They did take alot of weight to balance. I would buy them again.

I love the TrXusMTs, great tires on and off road. Mine got me through some nasty stuff in Alaska, not to mention the snow. Before them I had SSRs, I think SSR stands for Super Sucky Radial.
