they're 31x10.50x15's. if you dont like road noise or a rough ride stay away from these tires. lol those things dont bother me and in my opinion make the ride better, aside from all that.... great perfomance in dirt, mud, hillclimbs, wet weather and dry pavement. they'll damn near grip anything. i highly recommend them to anyone who wheels.

well i love road humming. I want to be going down the road and someone here me coming. lol And I've already got prolly the roughest riding truck ever. My tbars are tightened and its a rough ride. Did they do well in the mud at regular tire pressure or did you need to drop it a lil?

decent on rocks, gotta air them down a bit. as for tread life i'm not really sure... got them 2 weeks ago and they've still got the little nipples on the treads. i've heard of ppl gettin up to 40k out of them with proper inflation and rotation.

I can get good discounts on these tires.. my boss just bought some 33x12.50's for his jeep..... they come with 24 / 32'nds of tread.. these things are bad ***...

He used to spin everywhere with his swampers.. (had about half tread but still) now he doesnt barely spin at all..

Not sure... I just knew they had the swamper tread pattern...

They were also 31's... but these things do some serious gripping... IVe seen them in action...

So it could just be the bigger footprint that helps with traction... but they are good tires

maybe they were new? i heard TSL's were really hard when they're new.

I'm not doubting you, I've seen the Firestone's in action too and they work pretty good.

[QUOTE=99ranger4x4;1111876]maybe they were new? i heard TSL's were really hard when they're new.

tsl's are extremely hard when new, they usually break in after about 400 miles.


As to how much they ran me Fenech... I work for Firestone so I got a hellacious discount on them. But for ppl that dont work for the hotrock (firestone) they'll run somewhere near $900 for a set of 31's.
