35/12.5 Swamper LTB's....opinions

This was or is going to be my next tire. The only problem is I finally found some pics of the actual tire and it looks skinny for a 12.5. I'm guessing this is a 15x8 wheel because I saw a 35/12.5/17 LTB's and they looked the same

What are you opinions of the looks of this tire

Get em and throw them on a set of 10" wheels and then it won't look so skinny.

the 12.5's dont look too bad but the 13.5's look better.. i like em!!!!

im also thinking about running a set of these tires but in a 33 with a 3" bodylift.

i saw a jeep with a set of 31" boggers and it looked pretty sweet..

ericranger- nice truck and are those on the bald side??? they look a little smooth!! haha

camodown- the rubber on the jeep look wider than on the ranger IMO

well they only make 33/13.5 and that wouldn't do me any good, and the ones on my ranger are only 10.5" wide so I hope they look wider haha

I loved my 34 LTB's but don't expect them to wear long. They are very soft which makes them very good offroad. I'm getting the 40 LTB's when I go 1 tons in a couple years.

Irok.. I will NEVER get a set. They have 1/2 the tread depth of real offroad tires. They are better as a road tires with a little offroad. They might work better out west on the slick rock but here in the east they just spin more then anything.


12.5 is good size. I'm on 8" ring with weld on beadlocks so they are now 9".

36 12.5 15 front 37 13 15 rear.

I know that 12.5" is a good size but the 35/12.5 LTB is not as wide as a normal 12.5" wide tire and I'm thinking they are too skinny. That is my main question

Do it! Looked like the 33 LTBs worked well for you other than being a little narrow, the 35x12.5 should be good too.

great off road, they are bias so they do wear a little uneven. and they are loud on the pavement.

/thread jack



I know the IRoks are a little more $$$ but they make a 36x13.50 and i think they would look sick! I've got them on my sisters jeep and they do just about everything, ive had them on slick sticky mud and they clear well, and there also great in the hard dirt/rock.

don't get iroks, they look stupid until you get to 42s and bigger.. LTBs are sick.

get 17/47-17s if you think the 35x1250s look small
