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.

5.0 I get complements every day.

As a daily driver I run 20psi in rear and 25psi in front. I air down to 8psi all around when going trail riding. Great road manners despite its aggressive appearance and wet roads don't seem to affect traction. Had to static balance, then added 8oz. of balancing beads per tire and i can't tell I don't have street tires at 60+ MPH. I have to say, I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend these tires to anyone that's looking for an aggressive tire with good road manners.

3.0 Great Looking Tire

Over all great looking tire. I have had more compliments about the look of these tires more than any tire I have had. They look awesome and they make my truck look great. (2005 Chevy extra cab 6 in lift). Performance off road I couldn't ask for a better tire. On the highway this tire could not be more off. They have worn very easy and have a horrible shaking sensation on the highway. I have rotated them and had several front end alignments and have had them re balanced 3 time all with no luck. Very disappointed with that aspect of the tire. Best if I only used them off-road.

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).
