My TSLs radial squatted  at 10 lbs very nicely on my CJ-5 . My D.C. Crushers didnt squat hardly at all for 3 yrs.  With the bead locks I went down to 4/5 psi and they looked a little low.  Finally got the side walls to give in and they work great at 6/8 psi.  No sidewall damage or punctures , 5 yrs. on them mostly trail but maybe a 1k total around town or high way.  Id buy another set.   FjR68

I have experience with both the toyo mt and the cooper stt and the stt pro. The first muds I had were the stt on my Dakota and those were unstoppable they got great mileage on them for wear and traction. That is the reason I chose to get the stt pro for jeep currently. The pros work awesome off road but they are a softer compound (which is probably why they work better Offroad) but they wear out quicker than the original stt but still great tire and don't regret getting them. The toyo I had as first set of MUDs on the tj, got them on cl for a steal almost brand new, those tires were awesome and took us everywhere even when they were bald at our first Nejeep event we were able to go through trails at badlands in the mud open open and didn't have to winch while some others did. The only thing I noticed about those tires were they were very stiff even when aired down. I would recommend both of those tires to anyone.

Keep the swampers and buy street sneakers and stack your SXs in the corner of the garage. I got 33x10.5x15r BFG AT K/O2s and they're awesome on the road, I even ran them at badlands once, but didn't want to push my luck, I've torn multiple side walls. I swap on my Qs for off-roading and they work great! I think I'm gonna go 35" on the BFGs for the next set though.... 33" compared to the Qs looks like roller skate wheels...

The plan is the Dumb down and clean up the TJ and make it more road/kid friendly and finish the buggy for the harder wheeling.  With a good set of M/T's I should be able to do 95% of what I can do with it now.

I don't drive it enough on the road to justify buying set of tires, and if I did I would never actually change them.  I want one set I leave on it. 

Now that its warming up I might not be as pissed off at the Swampers and decide to keep them...  :swear_mad:

I had my swampers on during one snow storm, the first and the last time I ever made that mistake. Thing was pretty much useless.

Death wobble with flat spots sucks more than you can imagine.  I am going to be fixing my steering geometry sooner than lalter
