I would be interested in knowing what they are too.

lol more than likely not. they probably have a pretty low speed rating.

they do look similar to a super swamper tsl, which you could use. they aren't the longest lasting tire though.

They are also used on Unimogs quite often,here's a common site Expedition Imports Corporation Home . They are awesome looking tires, a friend had them on his old mog before he sold it. I think they do have a pretty low speed rating. Here is another site that seems to be cheaper http://www.unimogwherehaus.com/tires.html
