TSLs causing vibr.?

whatsup guys ive got 33x13.5TSL superswampers . and i cant go over 55 because of the insane wobble. its been aligned and balanced. all the vibration is beating my jeep to shit. should i go with some different tires. if so which ones? i want something that i can roll with on the road if i need to but something that still looks bulky at the same time.

So you are only getting this vibration at high speeds right? Swampers are definitely about the most non road friendly of any tire that we utilize on our rigs.

swampers are about as square as you can get. they dont balance well and have alot of road noize / vibration.

check for a bent wheel or other causes, and try internal balancing with plastic airsoft pellets (internal seems to be the best way to balance swampers becuase you can add more weight than external balancing).

which tsl's do you have the radial or the bias ply.

and do you let them warm up some because the bias ply does flat spot

maybe you should get a set of other tires for the street and save the tsl's for offroad

I think on my 33 TSL Bias, I had around 17oz weight on them, but they put them on both the inside and outside of the rims. I could run 70mph no issue. They did flat spot over night and the first 2-5 miles of driving felt like the jeep was coming appart. Loved those tires!

i have had no problem.. I would check your rims or have them balanced. I had one time on my way home from a good weekend of trail running at about 55-60 mph the thing started to shake so bad i thought it would fall apart. I got home and took it to a bugy bath and hosed off all the mud on the inside of my rims. On ther way home had no problems. Shake was all gone.

i have no problems with my tsl's (radials). actually, after i put them on my 35-45 DW went away

i think they might be unbalanced.

No personal experience, but that is exactly what a friend of mine does. Swaps tires if it's going to be used as a DD for a while. Puts the swampers on for trails.
