    How many miles do you guys think you can get out of bias (non-radial) TSL's? I've seen the Law's writeup of his boggers online, but I was wondering if the TSL's get anything close to those or better. Thanks.

    TSLs get better mileage. If taken care of properly (rotated every 2-3K and strict attention to air pressure) you could get 20K out of them.

    20k aint too bad out of a set. I think you should really pay attention to any set of tires. Do you guys know whats involved with balancing them? I've heard some of them are junk to begin with, and they say "blem" right on them. Is this true or am I getting fed a big bologna sandwich?

    I don't think they will sell you blems unless you choose to order blems directly from the interco website. http://intercotire.com/site.php?pageID=55&newsID=7

    Re: How many miles out of TSL's?

    your probably right, a company shouldnt be selling a product that has a blem that they know about as a good tire. I know cajun likes his 36's and I'm waiting for maxxis to put them on his yota. I think I'm gonna get the same 36x13/16's, because you can't beat the friggen price.

    Why do you want the Bias Swampers? Just price? I had real good luck with my Radials. I had 36 X 14.5's on my old truck. They handled very well on the highway. I put about 15000 Kms on them before I sold the truck.

    they dont have anymore 36x13s for that price imo... the selection of blem tires they currently have is slim

    Re: How many miles out of TSL's?

    mr-goodwrench, I plan on putting them on a strictly mud-truck, and I want the serious lugs and tread they have. The radials wont do it for me. Not a big fan. Cajun, you don't have to tell me but what did you end up shelling out? I looked at a lot of tire sites, and I see the 36x13 for like around 180 a piece. That aint bad compared to friggen radial tires.

    -I see now they don't have many blems left on intercos website.
