Can't speak to your first question but I can offer my 2 cents on the rest.
Since you are from San Jose I'd say you are making a mistake. Super Swampers are for our east coast brothers that actually have things called weather. On pavement swampers are loud and drone at highway speeds.
If you are just looking for a 34" (which in reality will probably end up a 33" or 32") with an aggressive look then get some mud terrains. They are more "tame" than a swamper and are more pavement friendly.
If you are thinking swamper for traction then the mud terrain will still serve you better in California's deserts.
