I am looking at a set of Super Swamper's SSR tires. They seem like a pretty good tire as far as looks as well as function. They obviously have the good looks and performance. They are a radial, siped, quieter than other SS tires, and I have read multiple reviews of 30,000+ miles. The two things I was wondering about is fitment and weight. The tire is a 285/75/16, but measures 33.9''x11.4''. I have 3+" of lift, but no cab mount chop. I know this will require a the regular trimming and cab mount chop, but will it need to be cut down really far? Will a 34" tire interfere with my front fenders/bumper? Also weight is something else, they weigh 73lbs per tire. Would that require a regear?
I want a 33+'' tire and have been looking at Hankook's Dynapro MT RT03 as well. In the 295/75/16 size, it is 33.6''x11.6'' and 68lbs. I have been looking at the Hankooks for a while, but these SSR's are pretty tempting too. I guess the differences are .3", 5lbs, and the looks.
I'm kind of stuck in the middle right now. What all would I need to do to run the SSR's? What difference would there be in running the Hankooks vs the SSR's as far as trimming/cutting and performance? and last, which tire would you choose over the other and why? I can get either of them for within about $100 of each other for all 4, but I want to make the better choice for me as well as my truck.
