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.
Great all around tire for snow,rain,sand and off road. Second pair of 35 12.5 17 on my jeeps. Very low road noise. 65,000 miles and still got 1/2" of tread left. Never had issues clogging up in the mud. Not an aggressive looking tire.

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.

love these tires, came to this site looking to replace mine and was blown away by the guys that didnt give these a chance! when i first got them i almost had them returned... i almost wrecked tying to drive on the freeway! dang jeep felt like it was tying to do the hula! BUT i gave them a couple weeks and it smoothed right out! my jeep will now climb a tree! so.... give them time! break them in! only negative is cost and noise and vibration on roads... but off-road? THEY RULE!

Fantastic tires !
Installed on my 80 Toyota pickup. I have had many off road tires. These have a lot of attitude and can back it up with performance. My favorite thing about these tires is the enormous lugs that work like claws for mud snow and sand and the center section that excels on rocks and dirt.

NOT EVEN 2 YRS OLD AND LESS THEN 20,000 MILES AND 2 OF THE 4 TIRES HAVE DELAMINATED. CHUNKS OF TREAD ACTUALLY FALLING OFF THE TIRE. BY THE TIME YOU PAY TO DEMOUNT, CUT IN 1/2 AND PAY THE SHIPPING BACK FOR WARRANTY ONLY TO GET 1/2 CREDIT MIGHT AS WELL GET NEW TIRES AND OH IT WILL NOT BE ANOTHER SET OF SUPER SWAMPERS. ONCE AND DONE, GOING TO MICKEY THOMPSON MTZ.

dont buy if you want a smooth ride
if you want a smooth ride you need to stay on the street with your street tires. these are not for your pavement princess. these are ment to be out in the mud and dirt liked they were designed for. I loved these on my 94 F150 and looking to put a set on my 73 half ton.

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.

3 bad to 1 good = not good odds
I ordered a set of these tires for my jeep. They shake the jeep even at low speeds. Highway speeds are not possible. I took them to a local tire shop and discovered that only one of the four were good tires. I'm quite disappointed right now. I'm currently in the process of returning the three bad tires and hoping the replacements are better. The one good tire seems to run smooth with the others replaced by my stock set. I usually have good dealings with this company but three out of four is not a good record in my book.
