SSR's or TSL Radials

(This is not for the D90 but my RRC.)
I am trying to decide between getting some (both of these are Interco Super Swampers) TSL Radials in the 265/80R16 size or the SSR's in the 265/70R16. I like the size of the TSL Radial better since I have 3+ inches of lift on the truck but I here that the SSR's do better off road and I hear that the SSR's run tall. I don't care about on road performance or road noise/tread wear or anything. I only care about off road performance. I only really drive the RRC to and from events/wheeling trips so street manners really don't mater much. I just want to run a radial so that if I have to I can use the truck as a daily driver. The SSR's are only like $3 more then the TSL radial so the prices are about the same. What do you all think I should go with?

I ran 285X75 R16 ssr's for 30K miles with an OME medium duty lift with stock d90 wheels. I switched to 764's all around with a 1" rear spacer...now runing 35X 10.5 SSR's on Disco spares...Couldn't Be happier. SX's tend to chunk out more than ssr's from personal experience. IMHO with the lift you have 265 75R16's will be too small looking.

If only looking for off-road performance...go with a bias ply Special Service Narrow swamper in 34 X 9. you'll only get 10k out of them on the road though.

These are going to go on my classic with 3+ (between 3 and 3.5) inches of lift not the 90. I have 265/75R16 on it now and am happy with the size but they are MTR's and MTR's suck.
