Super Swamper LTBs on a T-Bar crank?

I was browsing some mud terrains for my Ranger and found some Super Swamper LTBs. The reviews are great except for wear. And they come in 31x11.50, which is tight, but should fit. I plan on doin a T-bar crank also.
Be brutally honest! What do you guys think?

sure, they should fit ok, plus the tires only gona give u alot more traction on mud terrain. they are great tires offroad.. onroad are not even fair.. a few friend reviews are that they are incredibly hard to balance and they loose it very fast. on wet surfaces very slippery tires, and not the best breaking. but if you dont mind that go ahead. they are still way better than the boggers

actually when my tires go bald im rethreading them to a ltd pattern probablly. only with like 1/2" more thread XD

post pics with the new tires on!

You your daily driver you will regret buying Super Swampers. There are much better Mud Terrains on the market that will fit your needs better.

Save your money and get some KM2s or MT/Rs and you will be happy that you didn't waste your time and money with a tire for a mud truck on your brand new Ranger that you drive to work and school everyday.

160 a piece isnt that great of a price for a gay tire. I got my 33x12.5 bfg KM2 for 180 a piece.


but will they fit? yeah they should be fine. if it rubs just take out your swaybar

Nobody has mentioned how F-ing loud they are! Driving 50 Mph on pavement it's like there's a twin prop plane flying 30 feet directly overhead.

They are awesome in mud and deep snow.
