Anybody have thse yet? I'm currently running 35x12.5 Toyo MT's and will be stepping up to a 37x13.5 soon. I'm torn between running the Toyo or Swampers. I've read on other websites great reviews but my biggest concern is longevity. I have about 20K miles on my Toyos and they look like 60% or so tread so I could probably pull 50-60K miles out of them. Wondering if the SS could do the same?

I have very high doubts the SS will put 50K on it, for an MT it is a very aggressive tire. But it is a pretty one

Although it's aggressive, the treads are pretty close together and VERY deep. I can't imagine that with proper rotation and keeping a close eye on the PSI they wouldn't but I'd certainly like to hear from somebody that's had them for awhile

Agreed which is why I rotate my Toyos every 5000 miles without fail. They are wearing perfectly and evenly

You will be lucky to get 30k miles out of Swampers...They just do not last on the highway, which is a crock cause they are super expensive just because of the name.

No way will a super swamper last as long as your Toyos. Not in tread wear or in overall longevity. Swampers seem to do only 2 things good, and thats pull hard in the mud and dry rot.
Funny you mention it. My Toyos are getting dryrot after three years and I drive my truck every day.

I agree that they are awful on the highway, I had a set of 44's on another truck I had. I took a four hour highway trip with them and they were visibly chewed up from all the heat from one trip. Luckily I do almost nohighway driving anymore. I'm 99% city driving nowadays.

I know a guy who has the M16's on his truck and he says he'll be lucky to get 35-40K on them. Also said they aren't great in wet weather.

Thanks! Exactly the input I was looking for. Looks like my next set of tires will also be Toyos.

Toyo M/T's are excellent but too heavy in a 37. They are about 93 lbs. a piece. I'd probably get the BFG KM2's which are between 70 and 74 lbs. depending on the rim dia. That's less than your 35's.

Unless you park in a garage any tires will start to dry rot after 3 years.

I only drive 7,000 miles a year so I guess that would explain it. If I drove the average 15,000 miles a year it'd be time for new tires. I wouldn't be concerned about dryrot.

Ya I'm about 9,000 a year. My Toyos dry rotted a little too. Oh well, just gives me a excuse to wear them out faster! :teethmast
