I have a 94GMC with 9" lift on it and I was wondering what tire would be better I drive my truck evry day or so and MUD ALOT.
I don't care about the ride and and such,
How many miles should I expect??
Sizes are 38.5x15x15 ground hawg or 39.5x15x15 TSL's.
Thanks any sugestions welcome..

Radial or bias ply? I have heard ground hawg's are comparable to TSL's but if you are going to radials get some PJ dirt grips.

I have ground hawgs on my truck now. I keep on saying my truck is going on the road this summer... so I am not totally sure which is better. I wanted Super Swampers but I feel the Ground Hawgs have just as good of bite and are cheaper... only a little. Also I hear that the ground hawgs when the truck sits for say 2 weeks ( if you go on vacation ) that the tires will develope flat spots. They come out as you drive on them but they say those first few miles are really bouncy... My truck has been sitting on these 40's and off the road since 1997. The truck sits on dirt but havent developed any flat spots yet. Also you got any pics of your truck? Sounds nice. I almost bought a 94 chevy.. the guy wants $15,000 with 100,000 miles so I told him to bite cuz on KBB.com it is only worth 10.2 from a dealer and 7k as a trade in.... oh well...
hope it shed a little bit of light. Also I like the square look on the Ground Hawgs...

Most non-radials will develop flat spots if they sit for long periods of time, my swampers get them, but they round back up within a mile or two.

Definatly Ground Hawgs! I don't have them yet, but I've done made up my mind I'm getting them. I love the looks and sound they make on the road. They are dirrectional and I've both sides to this story. Some say they do work good in reverce some say they don't. They do get dern good milage.

If you dont care about driving on the road, than the only choice is the Bogger, nothing can touch its offroad ability, but if driviability is concern than the swamper would be my 2nd choice, my friend had some 38.5" groundhawgs on a Ford, It pulled the truck very badly all over the road, My 39.5" swampers develop flat spots but are gone within 3/4 of a mile, it seems the slower I drive the quicker they round themselves out.Also I think the Swampers are much better looking, not that that should have anything to do with it.
