A truly unique tire design, the Three Stage Lugs on the sidewalls of the Super Swamper Thornbird do not touch highway surfaces but as soon as the tire gets into mud or snow the sidewall lugs provide decisive traction in forward or reverse. Fiberglass belts under the tread and polyester body plies contribute to a really smooth comfortable ride. The design comes close to being two tires in one... a revolutionary design that has earned its place in the legendary ranks of Super Performance.
hi i am real not a computer
when i got these tires i was pumped the look sick and i loved how they made my truck look i got them put on my truck 1/5/12 and today is 11/1/12 and they have went down a lot for the price i think maybe about 25k ive driven with them not sure. the thing i dont get a messured them the other day and the front tires messured to be a 31 and the back a 32 im not sure whats up with that i run 45psi idk i thought that was a con.. they are noisy but i liked it but thats what you are going to get with a super swamper but overall they arnt to bad but for the money i would get something that would last longer.

I used this truck for both daily commuting and camping trails to get to kayak drop in's around Texas.
I was a little nervous after installation about how narrow the tire appeared. but fear not, these thing bite like mad over rock, mud and sand and have a substantial load rating for a smaller tire.
Great off road tire with a very aggressive tread pattern. Pressured down as low as 22 psi without losing a bead.
The tires were ok on the road, but when pressured up to ride on the center lugs they certainly lack grip, especially in the wet. The wear on these tires is very sensitive to psi changes. if you run a lower psi, you will wear your lugs unevenly as the outer lugs seem to wear much faster. On highway i ran as high as 55 in the front and between 35-50 in the rear depending on my load. I got about 18-19k miles out these tires...with 3 rotations and always adjusting my pressure between highway and off road.
If you have any dramatic lift or an alignment thats not perfect, these tires will definitely exacerbate the situation and wear incredibly fast.
All in all I loved these tires. Have had nails, screws, sticks and cactus stuck in these tires and never a flat! Awesome for a bias tire. but it rides like a bias tire and requires a lot of attention to keep wearing evenly. I would highly recommend this tire but advise a different choice if you spend more than 25-30% of your time on the highway.
Hell yes they are loud too! but if that bothered you, you shouldnt have put mud tires on your truck
The Super Swamper Tires off-road line includes the Super Swamper M16 tire, with 24 sizes, the Narrow Super Swamper, with 3 sizes, and the Super Swamper Radial which comes in 42 sizes. Super Swamper Tires are unusually round. So they work well on the trail but are still able to give a smooth ride on the pavement. The tires have six tread piles which cushion the bumps and shakes of the road. They also have low rolling resistance so they won't tax fuel economy. And up to 35 miles per hour they are not any louder than everyday tires. Super Swampers are manufactured by the Iterco Tire Corporation, known for making killer off-road tires for rock crawling (IROK), mudding (The Bogger) and tough trail running (TSL/SX).
