I have 36" bias ply swampers right now and I think they are the perfect size but I want something a little more road friendly.. I wana try an MTR (well actually 4 of them) but im not sure if I should get the 35s or 37s.

You could always get the radial swamper in 36. Otherwise, go for the 37 ( If you have the gearing) Most people don't wish they had gotten smaller tires.

Can't really say on the bias ply Swamper but the Swamper Radial measures in at 36" and the MT/R mesures 36.5" I'm happy with the on road performance of the Swamper Radial but the MT/R is much quieter and probably has a longer tread life. Pricewise I think they are very close.

Yeah I'm on a 7" wheel and the MT/Rs that were measured are on an 8" wheel. When I measured mine it was off the truck with less than 10psi in the tire and the tire was brand new.

i've seen several pics with tapes that show the 35's at usually less than 34" with 8" rims on the vehicles. lotsa cake for a 33" tire.

If you had 36 x 12.50 radial swampers the 35" would be closer...
I disagree from what I have seen the 36x12.50 is so close to the size of the 37" MT/R that is can be used as a spare.

Kjell, when I was looking at tires to buy I thought the exact same thing, and in the end I'm glad I bought the 37's.. (even tho they still aren't mounted LOL). If I had bought the 35s, I would have been kicking my self in the ass for not gettin the 37s. Now I just gotta give her more lift to fit them!! LOL

BTW, wanna help?? :flipoff2:

Get the 37s dude, you can't be having smaller tires than a GIRL! :D

Seems the consensus agrees with me Kjell. Go with the 37's:flipoff2: Than I'll get 35's and still have smaller tires than Countrygirl.:(

I picked up 4 brand new 35X12.5X15 MTR's last night. Got curious so I measured one. Sitting on the floor with no wheel....the bead's sit 8" apart, the width is no way near 12.5, closer to 10 something and that's stretching it and the height on them was 34 3/4.

Dood, make my EB reliable to where it won't die whenever I go to Walmart and I might... :p
I'm not that far, I can make it to Watt on 50 in 25 minutes or less... ;) Are you guys going this Saturday for Dane's thingy? I *might* make it out...gotta see. One of my 35's isn't holding air right now :( I'm thinking I might try to get those 37s mounted for the heck of it. :D They won't fit well, but who cares :D
