TSL Radial splitting

I just got my new tsl radials and there starting to rip or split or crack around the sidewall...about 4 inches towards the lugs from the rip and about 2 or 3 inches from the lugs down to the rim...You can see a defined splitting or crack which ever is correct in a circle of one of my tires...this things are 2 weeks old and only have about 400 miles on them...any ideas? Or is this normal for a super swamper...and is it safe? It looks like over time the tire will fall apart

Also i had a new lift put on at the same time of the new tires, i had the alignment checked and they said it was straight but my jeep pulled right, they said it was a radial pull, my tires are wearing decently even so far so im not sure what the problem is. If it truly is a radial pull will they still wear evenly just pull a little bit?


thanks for the help

We went threw 2 sets of 39.5 super swampers boggers , before getting a good set.
but we new right away , and the truck rode like shit (very bouncy)

The tire store ordered another set twice with out second thought.
good luck

I had a set that the lugs just ripped off while driving after 2 weeks ,sounded like somebody shot a 12 gage into the fenderwell. Went back to the place of purchase and they said Interco wouldn't warranty because they had wore funny?? They were clearance tires so probably sat around in a warehouse forever in who knows what conditions. Bottom line is take those fuckers back and bitch.

They look dried out to me. Probably been sitting around for quite a while waiting to get sold. Definitely go back tot he store you got them at as soon as possible in hopes that they will take care of you. I am sure you payed a pretty pennie for those and deserve to get a good set.

Look for the DOT codes and the production date to see when they were made.
Hell a chinese tire would probably do better than that.

In my experience with swampers I think the radials are going to do this eventually, but sense it is so new I would get it replaced.. When you call up Interco try to talk to someone, I had an issue with some ltb's and they would transfer me to "the person I needed to talk to" And there I would just get a answering machine. After leaving several messages I gave up. I just ride around with a 34 inch ltb that is out of balance 11.5 oz and 16 oz.

When you get a new set stay away from the curbs and make sure you air up before hitting the road.

I had the same size TSL radials and they never cracked or anything, and I had them aired down to 3-5 psi a bunch with a 5500 lb truck. I'd say IT IS a defect!

Had the exact same issue with a TSL Radial, but they were about 4 years old. Ended up with a sidewall letting go on a right turn on the street, the day after a wheeling trip. Don't trust em!
