Super Swamper LTB

Any one have or tried the Super Swamper LTB? I am fixing to order some 35" tires and am really looking for feedback on these. Thanks in advance.

I have wheeled with some guys who run those and they go purty damn good. They all have trail rigs only. The LTB is a bias tire so would probably wear out pretty quick on the road.

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

I ran the SSR radial/ TSL's on my '04 TJ and they were incredible in thick dredge mud- some of the nastiest mud out there. They hooked up like it was nothing. They also shed mud very well. I would definitely recommend them.

I ran thornbirds on my last jeep and was impressed. So what about daily driver mileage? How many miles could I get out of them?

did you mean 20500? That might work for me if so. As for the balancing, well not many around my area can balance over a 33 tire

Well, 20,000 a year would last me about a year. Kinda expensive but I might just go for it. Still the balancing has got me a little worried about them

One of the best mud tires money can buy. One of the worst street tires money can buy.

So what is the worst about street handling? Ride or handling?

Starting to think I might need to look into a different tire.

i would suggest running a radial tsl before a ltb. better ride and longer life.

Local shop recommends them for rock climbing indicating with the LTB he can let it more-or-less idle up a rock... that the LTB is so soft and with those massive side lugs... rather than powering or bumping... it will turn a bit and climb right up.

And, YES... SOFT compound = QUICK wear!
