    Default super swamper tire difference question

    I'm just wondering what the difference is between the tsl radial an the ssr tsl radial?

    Is one better in mud than the other?

    SSR has a slightly tighter pattern and siping, still aggressive but will be better for highway driving.

    TSL radial is going to be better in the mud.

    I personally would go with the TSL... I don't think you'll see that much difference in the road performance, but I've never cared much for the SSR's. If you do a LOT of highway driving, though, they may be worth it to you.

    Its bout 50/50 for me. My truck is in mud as much as its on highway. The tsl's probably would work a lot better for pulling people out in mud. I've had to pull 2 people out because had all terrains. When I get some time ill post pics of them sometime

    Two different tread patterns. If you are on road more than go with the SSR. TSL's on road absolutely SUCK!!! SSR's will still give you great traction in mud as well.
