SSR's

just wondering what you guys think about Super Swamper SSR's maybe compared to BFG MT's or something like that. Are they good offroad and how good are they on a daily driver? just looking for some opinions on them

your better off with BFG's, SSR's in my opinion are a softer compound and will wear faster. BFG's have been discussed over and over again, and they are good tire's if you take care of them.

SSRs have a notoriously weak sidewall from what i've heard. BFGs are probably better in that department. in mud the SSRs might be better


and on the street i would take the BFGs.

Holy crap, the world is coming to an end


I'd take the BFG's over SSR's anyday. The BFG's last longer, aren't near as harsh and loud, and are still extremely capable tires off the pavement.
