Neither, if you are driving mainly on the street get some mtz's or toyos. I can't speak for the tsl's but the sts's I have seen wear horribly

SX's are a offroad oriented tire that does not drive well on the road - you would hate them. Get something thats a radial for a street driven truck. The STS is the most road friendly swamper your going to get in that size and you even hear people complaining about them...

don't run sts's, they give your truck a pussy look becuase they are, well...pussy tires
that man speaks the truth... oh and you could get a toyo in 38x15.50, it wouldnt be near as bad on your truck then too... also they ride like giant car tires! The MTZ's also come in a 38x15.50

you could also get a radial Claw in a 40x13.50x18, but its probably the most expensive thing ive ever hear of!!!! they want $612 a piece for them at nationaly tire and wheel... :bawl:

My bad ment tsl, i dont kno were i got that from but yea. 600 a tire is a little crazy, going to 38s is not that much bigger then i have on it right know tho, so there would not really be a big up or anything. So goes most you leaning towards the TSL i just need millage dont really care how they ride or anything lol, just need something thats not going to wear out in 10k.

I would run the IROks but evey one says they are really skinny any one kno about these in that size. they make a 42 inch that measers like 41 or so but think that will be to big.
