super swamper tires in danger!

i just talked to a very large very informed local tire dealer. when i inquired about tsl thornbirds the tire guy told me that the company that manufactured tsl interco super swamper tires filed for chapter 11!!! this is a blow because in my opinion they make some of the most gnarly off road tires ever. now this is what the guy told me i do not know if it is true or not but i do believe that it should at least be mentioned here. apparently the company that produced super swamper is denman like denman ground hawg's the tire i would guess!!. any body that is super lifted and is really hard core either runs ground hawg's or boggers and thornbirds so this blows. and is a whack in the testes to the off road community.

It's fine. That company may be going out of business, but some other tire company has rights to that tire and will be producing it still.

Chapter 11 or Chapter 7?

And as Krazie stated, the patents, molds, recipes, drawings and other intellectual property are now owned by Titan Tire Corp.

Thornbirds are possibly the worst offroad tire ever. Loud and low life on road, horrible traction offroad and clog easily. I had Super Swapmer SX on my CJ and while great offroad they sucked on road. I am done with Interco... lets hope they go bankrupt and dissappear.

thornturds are well documented as the worst offroad tire ever produced i think

Trxus M/Ts wont hold up to a lot of pavement use despite what the ads say...i got MAYBE 20K miles out of a set before they were almost bald...they work great offroad...but...they just dont last on a multipurpose truck

mud grips such as groundhawgs/boggers etc arent the end all be all of offroad tires
