MOz I run TSL radials and love them... Yeah, they sound like B-17 in a dive but who cares? I didn't buy them for the sound or the looks, I bought them for the performance....and they are awesome off-road tires. Most of the time, I only need 2 wheel drive on the local lumber trails....(it's my personal challenge to not use the 4 wheel only when I get stuck)

Besides, the noise keeps the deer and other drivers away from me.

Rawkon the hawgs will wear pretty well but there lateral traction blows. get them in the mud in a straight line and you will give the bogger guys a run for there money. ive had a couple friends run them in there full size trucks. both guys ran 38s i think.

4Jeepn hogs,are even more old school than swampers.. they work, but, I have not seen a set on a trail rig in years. TSL hard to beat off road, and you get that cool B-17 sound as you drive along....

Ground Hawgs or TSLs

I'm in the market for new meat and i've narrowed it down to super swamper tsl's or ground hawgs. what do you recomend? i kind of like the ground hawgs because you don't see them very often, but can they perform?
