Tsl/sx

How many people have or are running super swamper TSL/SX, I'm looking at their 33' for a set of trail tires and these will only be used to get me to the trails which could be 4 hours driving. How do they handle around 70-75?

I run 33" TSL's and I bought it with 70% tread left. That was 8k miles ago and I have barely noticed a difference in wear down. I drive mostly highway to and from work everyday. and school on the weekends. They have been a great (however road noisy) tire.

I just switched from the SSR (which I guess is supposed to be the most road friendly?) to the BFG MT, and I really am amazed how god damned noisey Super Swampers are. Even with the top and windows on, they were too loud to even have a conversation in that car, at any speed over probably 30 mph, let alone listen to music

75 MPH in a land rover on bias ply swampers is a bit ambitious.

Already have with some JL and polk stuff, How do the TSL's work off-road? These tires won't be driven daily,only put on when I go off-road and I have my factory alloys with BFG At's for the street

They are the best off road tire going, at least for New England. Strong statement I know, but ask anyone who has tried them. They make MT's look silly.
