Moving this to the tire section.

What are you planning to use them for? Are you looking for mostly a street tire? Remember, they're bias plies so your gas mileage will suffer. Have you looked at the radials? http://www.intercotire.com/site29.php

As a daily driver, I'd recommend something else. If you want to stick to the Interco Super Swamper brands, look at the Trxus MTs. Same great offroad performance that Swampers have, but with much better on-road performance.

Also, look elsewhere than 4wheelparts. They are notorious for poor customer service and they add in extra fees when they give you freebies.

Totally missed that. Yes, I bought a set of MT's from them and based on that experience, I will never do business with them again.

alright, the only reason i picked the swampers was because of that kickass deal, ive also looked at BFGs and maxxis buckshots. are these any better?

I don't know anything about the Maxxis. BFG MTKMs will be much more road friendly than LTBs. They should do as well as the LTBs offroad depending on terrain when offroad.

I have the buckshots and for a daily driver...which includes 200 or so miles a week just going back and forth to school...(in college) plus the around town driving and wheeling they do great i have roughly 11-12 thousand miles on them and they still look over half tred...closer to 3/4

they key to any rough tire is rotation and air pressure


i have the 265/75r16s tho so maybe mine are more plys than other tires?

i was told they are 8 ply

hope that helps
