BOGGERS VS TERRA TIRES

I have a chance to buy some 31x15.50x15,Goodyear terra tires,these are not tractor tires.they are for 4x4s and the tread design is continous W accross the tread.They come 2 and 4 ply,with the 4 ply being DOT approved.I now have 33x14.00x15 Boggers,which still dont flex enough for me,maybe to much air pressure 10/12lbs.What do you folks think,thanks RR

Re: BOBBERS VS TERRA TIRES

I ran Terra tires on an offroad buggy (Army fast attack vehicle) for years. They flex like crazy ( true 2 ply sidewalls, not 2 ply with 4 ply rating) and have better bite than anything else I've run. If you don't run bead locks run tubes. Radial 12.50 x 16.5's are much cheaper and work just as well. They are not street legal and will wear quickly if you do run them on the street. They have enough bite I used to be able to break 914 cv joints. If they still made the original terra design in 11.50 x 15 I'd have a set. Let us know what you thinnk if you buy them

Re: BOGGERS VS TERRA TIRES

Rick try going down on your air pressure to 4-5 psi. I did and it made a big diffrence in how they work on rocks. Also makes them clean out better in the mud. CYA at the Melt !

Re: BOBBERS VS TERRA TIRES

<font color=blue> I think the guy's name is Sam Patterson (?). The guy that won the TTC this past year. I was watching a Tellico tape that he ran and he was running 3 psi in his burgers. If you've seen his CJ you know he has twice the weight of your zuk.

Re: BOBBERS VS TERRA TIRES

Rick, I just mounted the ones I got from Riff. They are 29X12.5X15Goodyear terras. If you can hold off till the melt, your more than welcome to try these puppies out before you buy. They have NO tubes in them tho. Wish I would have known about that before they were mounted[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

They are on zero offset rims also(4 inch backspace)

Let me know if you want to.

Re: BOGGERS VS TERRA TIRES

hey rick just let the air down to 1.5 or 2 lbs. and run them up and down a dirt road for about 5 or 10 miles to break them in. we pulled the valve cores on jai birds rig that has a set of 31x12.5 thorn birds and you could barely tell the differance. jesse ran 1.5 lbs. last time in clayton and never lost a bead all weekend. but the tires looked [33x15.5sxs] small and measured about 30 ins. tall. but they climbed every thing he pointed it at. i would play around with what you have and make them flex later mike.
