I've had several sets of Swampers and have been very happy with them. My Zuk currently has 32x11.5x15 Swamper SX's. My 4 Runner is running 36x12.5x15 Swamper SX's. As long as you are not expecting to use them on pavement much, they can't be beat.

I don't have any personal experience with the Claws though. I have heard second hand they have weak side walls, but I've never seen a set fail.

What part of Central Texas are you in?

Swampers are the best no doubt about it!! but I have a set of 35X13.50 claws for sale for $350, The claws have been good to me but I no longer drive my Heep every day so its time for some boggers <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Im my opinion the claws have very tough side walls, I would compare the side wall to that of an SX,TSL swamper, The claws are good tires but to short, Swampers are better tires but the claws dont suck either. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Go SX, 38x14.50 is the biggest they make, though. They are a PITA to balance, so the highway ride is less than perfect, but not too bad. And the sidewalls are alot stronger than anything else out there, they are steel belted all the way down to the bead. That also makes 'em real heavy. hope you have some horsepower.

Good Luck!!

The Bias Claws have 6 ply sidewalls I believe. It's the radial CLaws that have weak sides.

i have buds with sx's and they all like them. i had ssr's and they rocked. till someone slashed them, time for sx's now., i have heard that the claws are nice off road, short pavement life and , 3 people i know had problems with lugs coming off.
