Re: Weight of Boggers
Well, the 29x8.5 Swamper weighs 54 pounds on the rim and the 33x12.5 Swamper weighs 83 pounds on the rim, so it's somewhere in between.
The 33x12.5 Swamper doesn't flex on a Zuk, we tried them and even ran them completely flat at Zookin' 2K, so they are not a good choice on a lightweight Zuk. I am running the 32x9.5" Swamper on the stock 5.5" wide rim (with 2" backspacing in the front), and there is "no hope" of throwing a bead, but they air down well at 4 psi. I was VERY impressed with them at Zookin' 2K1 this year, which is the first time I've really worked them to any extent. I'm running 5" suspension lift and 2" body lift, and can still rub the front under compression, so you'll need 8" of lift to clear them well.
