35/14.5/15 Boggers

I have a chance to get some 35/14.5/15 Boggers for a good price but I'm kind of leary about getting that wide of a tire. I've figured that it would be 18 more lbs per tire/wheel after I get some 15x10's compared to my current setup. I could buy some aluminum wheels instead of steel to help with the weight but if I bought some fancy wheels that would defeat the purpose of my good deal.

I think that would be pretty hard on the IFS but it would look sweet haha

Any thoughts?

Why not? If they are such a great deal, then if you dont like them, sell them for more than you payed for them.

Plus boggers instantly make your street cred go up 8 points.

yeah, I bet it is pretty rank by now haha

well he came back with a higher offer, so I'm going to give him a week or so to try and sell them. If he hasn't sold them by the time a friend of his comes to pick some stuff up he is going to call me and see if I want them.
