I like the TrXuS M/Ts, Also read somewhere that they are made with a special compound just for rockcrawling.

Yeah i meant that i like the TrXuS M/Ts better than those LTBs. I read in a magazine that they also make the TrXuS M/Ts with a special compound just primarily for rock crawling usage. Made out of the compound like Nascar tires.

So far I'm liking the 33x10.50x15 BFG MTs. I haven't gone off-road with them yet. I might do that tonight or I might just wait until I hit the Chirichuahua Mnts over Labor Day Weekend. The cool thing is I'm still getting EPA based MPG, if I calculated right.

Odd question? Anyone know if we can fit the military hummer tires? My best friend's brother has a 97 F-250 4x4. He's slapping on a set of those hummer tires. The tires are 36x12.50. I believe they fit a 16.5 rim?

well with all due respect, the TSL line from swamper is pretty much legendary. I wouldnt get the trxxus MTs unless i was given them and even then, ide sell them for MT/Rs. They MAY make the stickies in that version tire, but i sure have hell have never seen anybody run a set in a comp and you nor I would be able to get a set. Anybody who runs comps and runs interco would run boggers or IROKS.

the LTBs are a more aggressive version of the normal TSLs, larger lugs, bigger voids, and bias ply.





the LTB has 3/32 more tread depth than the M/T and just look at the voids and then tell me whats gonna get more bite...


not to mention they dont make trxxus M/Ts in this kick *** size, which is another BIG reason why i decided to try it...

yes very odd and out of place, but none-the-less, I seriously doubt it...

military hummer tires are 37x12.50 Goodyear RTs I beleive.

i hear they are stiff as sh*t and they suck...

Ya i know what your saying. I was just sayin i saw that in a magazine somewhere is all. I like my M/Ts for what i use them for which is mostly mud and trail riding because we don't have much rocks around here. I have used them in the mountains buried up to my valence in mud and still pulled through so i like them.
