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?
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.lost said: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?
how do they ride on the street? I just heard that the tsl radials are a little rough on the street, is that true?97REDTJ said: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.
Thanks, that does help ALOT. I didnt know about the no braking thing and probably would have found out the hard way so thanksSandToy said: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,
