Claws to me always seem like they wouldn't perform well but I know they do. Cut ones are pretty cool too.
I still want to trade my 44 tsls for some 44 pitbulls.
Right now for 44's I have in total 2 sets(8)
1 @90%
1@80%
2 @ 50%
2@25%
1@ 10%
1 baldy but a goody . Lol
The best ones are all on now.

I just buy spares as they come around.. Am I a hoarder?

O he did end up parting that truck. I'm near border extreme west coast side. Don't think he's even close at all I'm guessing. I'll
Just sell all of mine for $1000 just rubber and throw it towards new ones. I just booked 1 week all inclusive Mexico for feb, and 9 day Cali and Vegas trip for may. Worked a couple double time Saturdays today and last week to make up for the dent to the credit card.

Some dude up here had 42 rockers and sold them cause he kept breaking axles. D60 front supposivly with all 35 splines but he complained they were too heavy and broke his junk. I don't believe that. I think it was a heavy foot combined with a unforgiving welded front.

I broke just as muck with my 42 inch TSLs as my 44 rockers..

I have a good heavy foot, and loved the Rockers. Best tire I've ran to date. I usually ran 4.5-6 psi

I hate scrap piles! For trucks I've got my big one, my stock 79 f250 with d60 front( only mods are a flowmaster 50 series, Edelbrock dual plane intake and 600 Holley)and a mint 78 f250 2wd for parts. Has the most mint box with side tool box that even had a key that came to lock it. Couldn't pass up on $150 for it and throwing a buddy a $20 for a tow as he owed me one..
I daily drive between my big 73 and 79 camper special. I'm just waiting for snow!
