New Swamper S.s. M-16 Tire

SUPER SWAMPER HAS A NEW TIRE OUT. YOU CAN SEE IT ON THEY'RE WEBSITE. WWW.INTERCOTIRE.COM ITS CALLED THE S.S. M16. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS HAD A FIRST HAND LOOK AT THEM. I WOULD LIKE SOME THOUGHTS ON THEM. I'M READY TO PURCHASE TIRES FOR MY JEEP AND I'M LEANING TOWARD NITTO MUD GRAPPLERS OR THESE M-16'S.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

I Wish I Could See A Better Pic Of Them. From A Distance So I Could See How Far The Side Lugs Go Down. The Tire They Show Looks Like Its For A 20" Wheel Or Larger. I Don't Want Anything That Big. I Never Had Thornbirds To Know How They Work.

They might do allright. They look like they would be ok on the road and the side lugs should clean out good in the mud. If you go nuts with a groover they have a ton of potential.

Thanks For Throwing The Pics Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!i've Heard Good Things About The X-terrains. Nitto Offers A Wider Tire In The Size I'm Looking For. Plus They're Badass Looking. For Me Its The Nitto Vs. Ss. M16.

They "look" ok, but I don't think they would function all that well. The voids in the center section don't seem big enough to clean themselves out.

I think interco was going for a more highway friendly tire, with that comes drawbacks off road

they look like a pretty functional tire to me, far better than a thornturd. i just couldnt handle the el-queero bullets on the sidewall.

National Tire In All The Magazines Has Them On There Website. No 15" Tires Yet, But A 37 X 12.50-17 Was $290. Right In There With All The Other Kickass Tires.
