    I would like to get a few of your opinions on the Mickey Thompson (now Cooper Tires) Baja Claw Polyester/Fiberglass Belted and the Swamper TSL-SX. Not so much a one on one comparison but if anyone has had some experiences with either tire. I know a few of you seem to love the Swampers but is that referring to the TSL-SX? And I have read some good reports on the Baja Claws but mostly from hard core rock crawlers. Most of my trips would consist of the trails in Attica Badlands Park and the tires would not be used much if at all on the street. I would also have the OME 2.5” lift on my cruiser.

    You can't go wrong with swampers! But those Baja Claws look pretty decent also. I'm also considering getting tires and am looking at XZL Michelin's.

    Swampers are hard to beat for toughness.

    Hey Wrench, LMK if you find a good (not charging RETAIL!) source for Michelin Truck tires in New England or elseware.
