Boggers

Has anyone run these? I saw some on a heavilly modified Toyota and they looked really bitchin'. But I am more into function than looks. How do they handle? Especially in the rocks. NORM

Re: Boggers

Norm, they're not a _bad_ crawling tire by any means, but they lack lateral stability. Most people groove them to try to help this. Recently they've become popular for crawling but that's kinda going away IMO. Many people say the SX is best for the rocks, and I tend to believe it. IOW, a Bogger will work fine, but they were designed for mud and that's still where they really shine. If I was gonna run a bias ply I'd run the SX for the dry, rocky climates in which I usually 'wheel.

Re: Boggers

They're awsome mud tires but they need a lot of tire spin to keep 'em clean. They're not an "all-terrain" tire and they wear out really fast on the street. In my opinion....you wouldn't be happy with them.
I was thinking about getting them when my TSL's wear out, but I'm gonna stick with what works.

Re: Boggers

I first saw what Boggers can do about 8 years ago. I was running 39.5 Swampers and Little Wayne had 35" Boggers. He made ALMOST everywhere I did. There were only two times I had to pull him out. PS-This was a lowrider, just like all my other trucks. It had a 2" lift and the rest of the clearance was done by sawzall. I sat 2" lower than Little Wayne with his 35's.
One huge difference is in the snow. This was before my 39.5's...I was running 33" Swampers and we went to play in the snow. He was all over and almost lost his truck and I was driving like it was only semisoft mud.
But as far as the mud, Boggers are absolutely the best. Nowadays I run 33x14.00 Boggers. I do mostly mud racing and general 4Xing. One thing a lot of the guys I race against run 38X16.00 rears and 38x12.00 on the front. They say the skinnier tires in front cause less drag.
I don't know how much there is in that but I don't have the kind of cash they do so I stick with the same size all the way around. Also I'm two classes below them, 5" smaller tires and about 200-300less horsepower; so I feel I need all the extra pull I can get with my front tires to keep up with the big boys!
ROCKS...no good answer there...don't play on those much unless they get in my way when I am out playing. I don't go in search of them!

Re: Boggers

I can't comment too much on the off-road ability, but I can comment on the street manners since I've been driving around my brother's truck (F-150 w/35x14.50 boggers) lately. They are all over the road and loud. I enjoy the constant hum, but the handling can become scary. I also wouldn't recommend them on a TTB frontend, the wear is terrible. With that said, I believe boggers are the greatest mud tires available.
