What would you run? boggers, SX or TSL?

my zuk is in desperate need of the new tires. the 33" TSL's on it look like donut tires, plus the fact that they where on fire is making me not trust them much longer.
I have plenty of clearence up front, the rear could use some more clearence, but i have that figured out. i have the axles, and definatly the gearing for the new tires.
I would like to run a 38x12.5 TSL , 38x12.5 TSL SX, or a 37x13 bogger. I would like to find a set used, but thats hard to do where ilive, so my only option may be buying them new. at that rate, the TSL's are way cheaper, with the boggers and SX's about the same at rufly $200 more for a set. Would you guys spend the extra money for the SX's or boggers? primarily a rock rig that sees some mud on the trails, but not the bogs. if i got the boggers i would groove them big time. im wondering the the extra grip and sidewall protection of the SX's is worth the $50 each tire.
Thanks
Zach

Re: What would you run? boggers, SX or TSL?

i abuse my tsls on a very regular basis.never had a prob with sidewalls.had an entire center lug seperate from the tire at 80mph on the highway.thought i blew the tire apart!

probably should not have been running 15 psi on highway in the middle of summer(95 degrees)at 80mph!i replaced them with the same32x9.5 tsls.

i know a guy with 31x12.5 boggers.he says they work great in the mud but not so good on rocks(lots of sideslip!)

i will probably go with 33x15.5 sx's when i get beadlocks.


p.s on fire?! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

In this area grooved boggers get it! Then I'd probably choose the SX's second....

I'd just get a set of the cheaper LTB's and groove them . That way , at least not too much invested and they seem to be very tough , at least about the same as the TSL's....
