    Default tall/skinny/narrow tires (32.5x9.50???)

    I was originally looking for Denman Coyote or better yet, Buckshot Mudder tires in 245/85R-15 size. I want something a little taller and a little narrower than the 31x10.50R15 BFG AT (JU "Official Tire") I have on there now. My goal is to get increased height, keep stock steel wheels, while minimizing the necessary lift and all the negative baggage (SYE, vibes, rubbing, expense) to get the increase in height afforded by taller tires.

    Think WWII Jeep or the old Range Rovers if you want an idea of what I'd like final outcome to simulate.

    Another thought was that I might get 16" wheels and do 235/85R16 on there, but then that defeats the use of the stock wheels.

    I also see there is a 34X10.5 LTB tire from http://jeepsunlimited.com/forums/sho...ht=tall+skinny Anyone know the true dimensions of that one?


    I deleted another thread which was similar, in hopes of seeing someone who is doing something similar.

    Just wondering who here is running these or similar tires in this size, and what lift/wheels you have. Pictures if you have them.

    I think this also translates into N78/15 (31x9.2)

    This was a similar thread, only in 35 inch. I want to do a similar thing, only 2 1/2 inches shorter.

    LTB in that flava is at most 33x10.5. i've seen 3 sets. and 2 of them were DD rigs, and you don't want them for daily driving, as far as they say.

    TSL radial is 32x10.5, but probably runs a little small in width. not a bad tire. i've gotten about 20-25k on my used set, still another 10-15 to go.

    OK on road, pretty good off road, considering.

    I have 33 X 10.50 X 15 BFG's on Canyon rims and love them. It is my DD rig too.

    While those were all nice, and I appreciate the effort, I think 33x10.50 might be a bit much for my 1" body lift, 3/4" spring spacer budget boost.


    I was thinking something more like 32.5 x 9.50 or so if anything like that even exists.

    Othewise, keep them coming!

    BFG makes a 33x9.50 in the All-Terrain tire.
    http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/bfgap...erraintako.jsp

    I think there's one of the Swamper tires that's made in a 32x9.50

    The BFG is tall-skinny and a good daily driver.

    I see they added 3 new sizes, but all in the wrong direction! 16, 17, and 18 inch sizes!!:sousy: http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/bfgap.../11052002C.jsp

    Is TSL the new designation for Super Swamper? What does TSL stand for?

    Anyone have this in the 32x9.50R15 size?


    Also, what does P7815 or Q7815 translate to roughly?


    Thanks again.

    Cool! Maybe that'll do. Know how tall and how wide those really are?

    Thanks.

    On the BFG site it says 32.7 for height and right at 9.5 on a 7.5 wide wheel.

    It was my understanding that BFG discontinued the 33x9.50 sizes.

    On my WJ I had AT KO's and MT's. On my TJ I have had MT KM"s and AT KO's. I like both, the MT's are a bit louder, not much. Both wear like iron.

    I had the Swamper TSL in 32x9.50 for a while (I originally bought them for my Samurai, then moved them to the TJ) - they're tall - actually a hair taller than my 33x12.50 BFG AT's. Here's 2 pics with a 4" lift, followed by one stock (only for the ride home to install the lift.)







    And for the record, TSL's aren't the best daily driver tire, by any stretch of the imagination.

    TSL stands for Three Stage Lug. As far as I can tell, that is the new name for the Super Swamper. The TSL radial is just that, a radial TSL. The SSR (Super Swamper Radial) is similar to the TSL radial, except it has siping and a slightly tighter tread. The SSR's tread also isn't as deep as the TSL, in some cases a difference of as much as 3/16". The SSR supposedly gets a little better street mileage than the TSL Radial, but it's still a swamper. As far as skinny tires between 31 and 33 inches for 15" rims, the TSL is available in 31x10.5 and 32x9.5. The TSL Radial is available in 31x9.5, 32x10.5, and 33x10.5. The SSR comes in 31x10.5 and 32x11.5. I'm currently running 32x10.5 TSL Radials on 15x8 Canyons with 5.5" BS.

    BTW - Hellbender ran Q78s on his rig, said they measured out to about 36x11. Swampers site says 35.5x10.5. I couldn't find the P78 on their site.

    TSL is old as dirt.

    Three
    Stage
    Lug
    if you look at the outside lugs of a swamper, you'll get it.

    the swamper TSL 32x9.5 are bias ply. tough for offroad, not so good on road, as mentioned. the TSL/Radial in 32x10.5 is better on road, not as good off. tread design is different, not as deep, and overall is a weaker tire.

    I'm wondering whether they'll fit with my 1" body lift and 3/4" coil spring spacer boost. That would put it about halfway between your two setups there. I have a feeling it might be too close. However, there does look to be more room in there than the 31x10.50 need. Maybe the narrower profile would allow a little more height?

    Sounds like if there were a SSR in 32x9.50 or 32x10.50 it would be a better match to what I was looking for.

    Still searching...
