I ran 36" TSL SSR Radials and they worked pretty good. They SUCKED in the rain and wore pretty crappy. Also, if your going to see ANY snow, I wouldn't go with 'em. I'm running 35" BFG AT's and they are great. Good road manners and good offroad capability. They DO clog with mud but clean off with a stab of the throttle.

I sold tires for years. Depends on the rim size first, so you know what's available. After that I would see it there is a Super swaper SSR or a toyo MT that fit that rim. I dis ]agree with the BFG. I take more off and putt on the two mentioned above. I have run both and they rock the swamper I can't get in a 20xs38 so I run the toyo. Snow or rain they rock they both have aside biting tread and three stage lugs to help with sidewall traction and move the tire around if is digging to much or stuck. Both are wuite on the highway and will go 50,000 miles if you rotate once amonth(thank you Les Shwab) and don't smoke them everychance you get. Bfg,Buckshot,and the rest to skinny and to much side to side sway for highway use. Bad in the rain. Sorry but tires make the rig go and stop.

most tires only wear bad if you don't rotate. And I mean rotate often.

any tire over 35 with lugs is not going to like leaving it's tracks. tears them up, But both are good for the mud rain and highway open lugs the ssr has bigger solid lugs the toyo smaller. What size rims? maybe keep some old tires on spare rims for smoke shows. ha ha never run an AT tire unless you run two wheel drives and need a steering style tire like a semi., MT so it all these days since they are radials. Never run a bias ply unless it is strickly of road you will hate the ride.

I had a set of cooper street radials that would go forever on a burnout after powerbraking them loose, but I had a set of Goodyear MT/R's that would break loose after powerbraking, but would bite pretty quick. Goes to show how much softer the tread was on the mtr
