I'm gonna be putting new tires on when the jeeps done in the couple of weeks... Just looking for personal oppinions bout the tires we all use..


Right now I have the 32" 10.5 goodrich km m/t's..

They haven't given me any issues as far as I'm concerned they preform ok in the mud but do well on looser rocky terrain with them aired down...for them being on a dd they have maintained tread and seem to be wearing pretty slow..

I'd like to go more agressive tread in a 36 x 12.5

you got to realize his were probley 6 years old buy the time he got them mang ;) but swampers are not round they are made for offroad but you can drive them on the street where as the typical mt's are made for the street but you can drive them off road :D


whats more important of road performance or being smooth on the steet ? if ya can't take a little shake or be smart enought to play with air presurres to figure out what works for you then stick with the mt's

Yup they were old tires I got them from pnut a few years ago and he ran them for how long before he sold
them to me and ya at 30psi it was like driving a tank, I found that at 10psi I could drive to the trail and back home no problem, when it was wet
out I never really spun out unless I purposly dropped a gear around a corner and drifted the jeep, as a matter of fact I still have these tsls lol, there bald as fuck but still hold air:D

the bfg m/t's never let me down for anything. good off road when aired down and great on the hwy/ around town when aired up.

went to swampers and then boggers just cause i could afford them at the time. choose a tire that is gonna be dual purpose if it's a dd. these peeps will give you lot's of info just like b is givin up!

indeed...


I run TSL radials. They work well on most surfaces at around 8psi/ 20psi for the street (with my rig). They have a pretty solid center tread with little in the way of tread voids but have the typical TSL lugs everywhere else. It makes them a bit better on the road than old school TSL's. They have worn very quickly though...

I run boggers....and they don't sidehill for shit. My buddies mallterrains were holding on muddy sidehills last year that my damn boggers slid me into the washout on......That said they do nothing but bite any other time [36]

i run 36'' tsl bias


air down to 8psi for gravel and wheeling ..feels real soft and grippy

20 psi on the road ... little bumpy in the morning but not to bad after a little warm up


as for the wear


imo

900 bucks for 4 36 tsl....would last me 1.5 year
1200 bucks for a good a/t....would last me 2.5 years

whats it worth to ya [cheers]

ran old mt/r's on the runner, and bfg m/t's on the cruiser. both were equally good, mtr's better on the rocky stuff and i had more confidence in their sidewalls and bead holding capabilities. bfgs better in the soup and being a harder compound, they last forever. both sucked in hard snow or ice. my next set will either be the new mt/r w/ kevlars, or trxus.

Not meaning to hurt the feelings of those who love boggers but they work well for what they're made for MUD and little else. If I wanted to mud bog I would buy Boggers. However, I like all kinds of wheeling, including off camber stuff with dangerous drop offs at times. I feel a lot safer with a tire that bites in more than just a forwards direction and boggers don't offer that. Cutting them to create some voids will help the lateral stability somewhat but it will never match that of a staggered tread such as a TSL. Those are facts.

XJ-Jamie, buy what you want but if you're not a dedicated mud bogger why run dedicated mud bogging tires?

xj-jamie
03-25-2010, 06:56 PM
I hear ya like I said I'm looking at the irok nd and ssm16 before the dedicated bogger the non directional seems a bit better for multiple use and same with the m16 I like the m16 better a this point I've just begun to shop tho too

trencher
03-25-2010, 09:03 PM
If you want a smaller tire and are going to run on the rd a bit the mickey thompson mtz is a good all around tire too. and non of the bias bump.....they flex ok too

have you ever run boggers? if not, yer talking out of your ass

I've run everything from Moab slickrock, sidehilling slippery slopes, deep snow, creekbeds, soupy rooted filled shit trails, all sorts of wheeling in all sorts of conditions and never had any issues w/ boggers. The only reason I switch to SX's is I heard lots of good things about them and after 2 sets of boggers thought I'd give them a chance, in my opinion the SX's are better on the road, but off road the boggers are equal if not a litttle bit better than the SX's

If you're just getting into wheeling get a set of muds, goodyear or BFG's; both are good tires

'Balmer
03-25-2010, 09:45 PM
I agree that Bfg's and Goodyears are also viable options.
Your experience with Boggers is your own, if you like them and they work well for you that's great, like I said - no offense intended. I stand by what I said. I'm not into pissing contests, facts speak for themselves and the majority of wheelers who used to run Boggers because they look so gnarly have dropped them for Krawlers, Goody MTR's, TSL's etc...

I got Pro Comp Xterrains they work well on and off road not to noisy on the highway either but not a huge fan of them when its wet though doesn't help I have a pickup either. I run Pro Comp a/ts in the winter for going up the mountain skiing and boarding haven't had any issues in the snow with them always had good traction. But I did notice the last time I went up the hemlock with the Xterrains was a much smoother ride they do alright in the snow but then again its a mud tire so hard packed snow and ice make for an interesting ride. I got both sets with the buy 3 get 1 free thing so it saved me a couple dollars and I would buy them again.

If I was to stick with a mt I would stick with another set of KM mt. They have been great for me good grip in all situations quiet on the road and slow wear...

Is there anything that's In the same realm as boggers but not?? Truxxus I like and I know they were/ are quite popular and the rave...

Back when I used to wheel, I loved my BFG MT's. Got me anywhere I wanted to go till I bottomed the diffs. Since its my daily driver when and if I ever get it back on the road, I realy like the street manners. I don't think I'ld go much, if any further with anoyher tire.

Just switched from 36" Swamper TSL's back to 37" MTR's
I have run the MTR's in the past and they work well all around, 'cept for mud that is. No biggie tho' if ya dont like mud.
One thing about the Swampers is they are tough and the SX's even more so.
They dont balance well at all but....fuckit they're Swampers!
I found that when the TSL's were brand new they kinda sucked on everything esp in snow, but as they wore in a bit they got better?!?!? :dontknow: Then I grooved 'em , that made a huge difference.
Awesome tire for a dedicated trail rig. They just wear away too fast if you do a lot of driving on the street, hence the switch back to MTR's.


PS: I cant believe how nice the ride is now with the MTR's and they needed no weights to balance, in fact I musta scraped a lb or 2 of lead weights off the rims, all those weights and the TSL's still shook like hell above 90kph.
