http://salmons-leap.com/rovering/v/a...01367.JPG.html, anyone know what tire. Also, anyone run the super swamper narrow ss on a defender or know if there would be any issues running with a 2" lift on stock wheels, it is a 34 9.5 16
thanks,
Dave

34/9-16 interco super swamper tsl


Take a look under D90 Bios, page 5, Martin Podgorski. His old truck had those tires and he list his suspension spec too.

I run them on a series coiler, no issues with OME 761 in front and 764 in rear on LR alloys. A 90 on the same springs actually has more clearance too.

34 x 10.50 swamper LTBs are cheaper, I am partial to BFG MTs in 255 85 R16 which are almost as big and last three times as long. Even the radial swamper truxus are no match in quality and wear to BFGs. YOu do lose some mud traction but swampers on the highway are miserable.

34x10.5-16 LTBs balanced with 8 oz of plastic BBs/tire


Fit fine, went and flexed it on a loading dock, no rubbing.
