That looks nasty! I can't believe that the 47s look so much larger than the 42s. When are you taking them out?

We are headed to Calico (local offroad spot/ghost town) next weekend. Should be a great time.

Keep us informed...I looked but was told they first off are made in China and they haven't done well. Of course they wanted to sell me a set of TSL 44's.

I'll be sure to take some action pictures. Don't know if I'll get much video though. Garrett has a heavy right foot so I'll probably be holding on most of the time.

Did you happen to sit the 42"s next to the 37"s after you unmounted them? If so, how did they measure up then?

Yes we do. I need to give my some much needed care and upgrades. I have been a little busy with other projects around the house lately. Let me know when the next time your heading to Moab, would love to wheel with you again.

wow they are nice!!!!!

i recently bought a set of 40s for my sons toyota.they say made in china on the side but i knew that.they also had balance patches inside of all 4 tires as if they were somewhat pre balanced.did yours have these patches?they have been holding up well so far on the street.just like every set of brand new swampers ive ever bought 2 ran true but needed a lot of weight and 2 ran horrible but did not need much weight.
