Re: swamper weight?

Ok, I know this doesn't really answer your question, but should give you a ballpark figure at least in case you aren't able to get the weight of the particular tire you are asking about. When I ordered my 33x12.5-15 Swamper TSL tires, they came with a shipping weight of 61 lbs. each. Again, this doesn't really give you the info you want, but at least you'll have some idea. Hope someone else can narrow it down for you further yet!

Re: swamper weight?

Well, I only have 33x12.5x15 Swamper TSL bias ply's, but I did manage to weigh them. I used a bow scale, which is used to measure actual draw weights of archery bows. I measured the mounted Swamper 10 times, and came up with an average of 82 pounds. They're 1/2 worn, and mounted on 8" steel rims. A Bogger is a little larger, but does not have the same amount of belts, so the weights should be somewhat comparable (just a guess though).

Just a thought, but I should have taken the 20 pounds of air out of them and they'd match the 61 pounds <font color=blue>Digger76</font color=blue> mentioned.
