cant decide

i'm stuck between

33x10.5x15 swamper TSL radials or

34x10.5x15 swamper LTB bias.

i think the 34's may be to big and not sure on the bias thing.
the TSL radials are actuley just shy of 33' inches, no big deal, but radials.

pros and cons please

then you DO NOT want bias ply tires......they will be out of round in a matter of days and ride like crap....

why do you want 10.5 wide tires? you should get atleast a 12.50 tire since your truck is lifted and you off road it....

i personaly dont see the need for a 12 inch tire, unless i had 10 inch wheels. i have 8 inch steel wheels and a 10.5 will spread out nice on those, getting all the rubber on the road.

i can also get firestone destanation MT's for the same price through my work but there 33x12.5's and no where as agresseve as swampers.

the look hella agressive. But doesn't look like they have much tread void. Looks to me as if they'll gum up quick in mud.
