Alright heres the deal i have two almost new 38.5x15.5x15 in rim gumbo mudders, and i need to buy two more tires. I could live with the idea of running two different brands of tires since i am just that ghetto. i have narrowed it down to these two options buy two more gumbo mudders at a price of 253 a tire and actually measure 37.7X10.5, or go with super swamper TSL 38x12.50 that measure 37.8x10 for 191 a tire. Which from my knowledge is a better tire. What do you all seriously think i should go with, if you are gonna post make it relavent to what i am asking.
thanks kevin

couldn't you get a set of 16.5" rims and some 37" goodyear humvee "pollock specials" for about that price? Gumbos and boggers are both mud tires.
edit: sorry that was kinda chitty advice, since I just sold you 15" rims. If you don't want them, we'll work something out.

well for one i dont want to run those 36 or 37 hummer tires a 38 is the smallest i want to run, i already have lots of 15 inch rims, and two almost new tires and so it is gonna be either the gumbo's or tsl, the gumbo mudders are also harder than ****, the bronco is gonna be used mostly for rock and sand very little mud.
no the rims are good i already sanded and painted two of them that i mounted on the 38 gumbo's i got and my uncle needs some rims for his hunting slash beach truck. Besides i like small rims.

i am in the process of finding a front 60 if i can find a set or two of spare shafts i may weld the 44 when the redneck ram goes on.

this isnt exactally what you suggested but the price for 2 gumbo mudders comes to $506(more with tax, etc.) but you could get 4 TSL's at that price for only $258 more(price you quoted for one gumbo) and have four new tires and two spairs to cover your *** just in case.

yeah that would be ideal but cash is tight enough just saving to get a front 60, plus trying to do all the other crap to the list of stuff to be done is very long.

then sounds like 2 tsl's is your best choice since they are cheaper
