    Default need help on what tires to buy? answers and opinions welcome!

    I will be buying a set of 35 12.50 mud tires soon and can't figure out which one's i want exactly? I like the Nitto mud grapplers along with the Nitto trail grapplers. Im also lookin into the super swampers but would like one of them that would last better than the tsl. i know they are higher than mud grapplers but like both allot. im not lookin for a tire that will last along time just around 20k miles maybe.

    I've been doing the same research the past few weeks. From what I've gathered the Nitto's are good tires, made by same place as Toyo. The only negative things I've heard about some of the Nitto's are that they have balancing issues, one review said they sucked at gripping and had no traction, another guy said he had chunks of his wheel coming off. Other than that I've heard good things about them..

    i have yet to buy nitto's but i plan on it in the near future, but i do have a buddy that has Nitto mud grapplers on his truck and he says he gets aroun 30k out of them, and thats the only tire he will buy, every one around here that has nitto's have been pleased with them

    i have wild country mtx the have a very similar tread pattern to the thornburgs with out the huge side lugs but they have lasted my bout 10 months of driving so far and they clean very good in the mud i swear by them http://www.multimiletires.com/tires/...ication=SUV-LT .... they arent very popular round my parts so they a decently cheap i bought mine for under 1000 with lifetime balance and rotation and road side assistance

    I had these on my grand cherokee. They aren't as loud as a standard swamper and I had somewhere in the neighborhood of 20k on them when I sold the truck. They had about another 20k left on them. I didn't have any balance issues. I would highly recommend them. I am wanting to get a set in 33 X12.50 when I get new meats on my truck.

    I think i have made up my mind on what tire i want. I will be going with the Super Swamper M16's i found them in a 35 12.50 r18 and i really like the military theme tires. i have not seen anyone here have them so i will get them first.

    Thanks man. i think i really like them allot more than the Nitto mud grapplers. i barely found them in a 35 12.50 r18 every other site didn't carry them in 18 inch rim. i think they will run me around 1,400 which is not bad. i wonder do you think they will perform better than the mud grapplers.? my truck should look allot better with these in a 35 compared to my run down all terrains in a 33.

    I guess the 1,500 bucks will be worth it. I did allot of lookin online today and it looks better than i thought. I am ordering them around 1st of feb. and can't wait to get them. they kinda resemble a cooper stt but the design of these swampers look way better with the military design and they have allot more side bitters on outside of tire and tread design seems much better. does anyone on this site have them?
