Question about super swampers
Posted 25 November 2005 - 08:53 AM
What I don't know is whats the different between them.
The TSL is the least expensive.
but then there is TSL radial and also SSR.
I do a lot of on road driving and want to pick one that will last a while.
The TSL says it requires strict attention to pressure on road so I would guess it would be most likely to wear out quickest. Does the radial version last longer? ANd where does the SSR fit?
Thanks in advance.

yes, super swampers will wear out faster, since the ssr is a radial and not a bias ply tire, it will be a lot better for street driving..and it also wont get flatspots in the cold mornings.i'm really not sure about the tsl radial, but i wouldn't imagine that it would be to much different from the ssr.. i would probably say go with ssr's since you do a lot of street driving
Thanks. I have been pouring over the faq's and such. I really wanted the coopers since they seemed to do well both on and off but I can't find them anymore. Darn 14" wheels

I've got the SSR's and would reccomend them, i'd also get them Sipped, they stop much better in rain and snow. They also theoretically last longer once the've been sipped.
forgive the ignorance, but what is "sipped"
