Tsl Radials??

I'm about to get some 33x12.50 tsl radials and I was wanted to know how these tires do in mud and sand and how much life i should expect from them?

thanks,
-Matt

The design lends itself to be a digger in the sand because of the large voids between the lugs. Whereas an all terrain type tire will float better. In the mud they clean out very well. It is hard to find a tire that truly excels at both sand and mud. As for mileage, can't help you there, never talked to anyone that has driven their rig on the road enough for a set to wear out.

Hey Lost i run the TSL on my Daily Driver and my Trail rig. The tread life on the road is alright not great but alright. I have had them on for about 3 months and i cant really see a diffrence in the tread wear.

As far as driving in sand, stay off the brakes!!. If you have an AT take your foot off the gas, bump in N and coast to a stop. Manual just push in the clutch and coast also. To air down or not to air down. I do not most of the time. Since you are new to sand driving I would suggest airing down to 20psi. This way if you do loose forward progression (not stuck lol) you have some room to go down. Do not go under 15psi or you risk loosing the bead and deflating the tire completely.
Hope this helps,

Hey Lost sorry about this taking so long to repsond but ya they are a little rough. Also they humm like no other but i LOVE the humming noise. But as just traction on the street they do good, like i said beofre just a little rough but its worth the rough ride. They do EXTREMEMLY awesome off road though! I have'nt any problems with one at all! I have a set on my TJ and my CJ.

Thanks alot for all the replies!

I ended up going with the 33x12.50 TSL Radials mounted on 15x10 Mickey Thompson Classic II's! It came out to $1090 for the wheels/tire and $40 more for the lugs and center caps.
I'll post some pictures when I get them on, should be about a week.

Thanks again,
-Matt
