I think I've reached a decision...

MT/R's (37x12.5R15) for my DD tires.

I'm going to see how they do...they are over $300 cheaper, and I just don't hear enough about them. I'm goign to try them out.

If they don't do good, I'll sell em and try boggers




I just was thinking, I don't want to get boggers on my 2wd, I'll get em after I sas (in a year or so).


MT/R's, I found for $219 a peice...anyone got any better prices? They price match, so I'm taking advantage of that!!!



Edit: The difference between MT/R's and Boggers is $164 and the difference between MT/R's and TrXus M/T's is $64.

I just drive on the road a lot, more than I offroad. I don't want my $1k to be gone in 20k miles....whereas I could have got 30-40k out of them....we'll see.

The MT/Rs do really wee around here,but don't get the best mileage. The "Main Highway" that everyone uses around here is in the process of getting repaved, so it really depends on the quality of the roads in your area. Another tire to look at that is ranked with the MT/Rs is the BFG M/T, and it's probably alot cheaper...

And chris, like i said in the other post, i'll be up there in a couple weeks. I can make a trip up there to get the tires if I have the money at a later date also. I don't want to push my bank account too hard, thats 1k on tires :)

but dont get something that sucks either, boggers wont be good on the road, right along with most superswampers, bfg m/t's are proven, alot of people like the mt/r's alot, but they are expensive, trxus m/t's seem to be a pretty good tire, im still debating as to whether or not i want to run these.......a siped m/t is a plus...

What about the Mickey Thompsons I got from Summit? Possible "contenda" for your truck as well.

Guess I can't totally recommend them yet though, as they are too new to really report on. They look a lot like MT/R's though.

Couldn't have put it better. Our trucks are light as hell compared to a 350 or something...so treadwear shouldn't be that bad.

As long as that deal holds up, I'm sold on boggers

And thats what really makes me want em...someone who's had 3 sets and said they aren't that bad!!!






37x13R15, chris, I know you said 226, I think I'm sold man...I was worried about treadwear, but at $7 more a tire....I can deal with it.

I like the way they perform too

Edit: I just hope they will fit...37's seem like they are going to be pushing it!

I like my MTR's alot more than my old Cooper SST's. They're a bit better than my old Kumho MT's too. Overall, I love em and just may have to get another set, only in 35's this time =]

I hope that fits?

I'm really thinking about getting either glass or just settling for 35's...

I don't like the look of glass though...




I mean 35" interco's measure out to a true 35...the trxus m/t is 35.2", so I should fit it pretty nicely on a bl. What about a bogger?




I guess we'll see when I get the BL on, I will maybe "try on" one of ryans 38's...see if they won't fit?

MMMMmmm...that would be aweosme if they do fit...here I am thinking about that, but I'm worried that a 37 won't fit.

I just don't want to buy it before trying it...

Edit: It's a 35x14.50

That would look really nice, and perform even better!

Definetly let me know how those perform...I would love to know. They are a very practical DD/weekend toy tire. Price is awesome, and the tread pattern looks amazing!
