Super Swamper LTB???

Well, I am thinking this is going to be my next tire, so what are your opinions on them? Who has run them? Pros/Cons of this tire? I use my truck quite abit off road, alot at the farm and in the mud, and most of the street driving isnt above 35 mph. I am getting 31x11.50x15. Going on a reg cab short bed 02 edge 4x4.

The are an awesome cheap Offroad tire. They are bias ply so they will flat spot and take a while to warm up in the morning so expect some vibs and lots of noise from them. They have deaper tread depth then other TSLs. They wont like the road but they will do GREAT in the mud and dirt.

with my truck only sitting over night, will I have a big problem with the flat spots? or would i be better off cranking the t-bars and buying the 32x10.50 tsl radial?

If you do alot of traveling do the 32 if you can, but the flat spot isnt to to bad unless its REALLY cold out then its rough for a while like Andrew said, until they warm up...

The flat spots won't be too bad. I don't think it gets too cold in Missouri but hey I could be wrong.

I have Bias TSL's and they suck when it is below 30* but above that they warm up pretty quick. I normally do the race track warm up and swerve back and forth a few times.

well if I wait for the body lift, then I am putting a locker in and boggers, so that brings up alot of other questions lol. I have ran boggers before but never on a ranger. I ran 44" boggers on a 79 ford F150 that had a Dana 70 rear and a Dana 60 frontthe only time that truck got drove was at mud runs, truck pulls and parades..
