    anyone know the actual height of a 44" Bogger mounted on a 15x10 rim? Someone on pirate said they are 'pretty much' 42" tall... since the 42" irok is tall for its nominal height, I thought maybe I could run 44 boggers in back and 42 Iroks in front. :D anyone measured 'em?

    I could get a measurement from a 12-14" wide wheel..
    Bogger's need at least a 12" wide wheel....so someone with a 10" wheel is gonna be hard to find. ;)

    I have a set on 16.5 x 12's but I will have to get a measurement after work. BTW I sold my old 44x19.5X15 boggers to a guy that mounted them on 15 x 8'S :eek1: They looked sick on those wheels.

    yeah, no reason you can't put a 44 bogger on 10" wide rims... as mentioned, there are peeps who run them on 8s.

    43"+ on a 16.5" rim eh? hmm... not lookin good. lol!

    I don't understand it either, the TSL's are more attractive for the simple fact of more tread depth.

    That is a great combo when mud bogging. Easier to steer with the tsls up front & great traction in the rear.

    That, and TSL's actually work. I have yet to be impressed by a single rig i have seen running IROK's, especially in any kind of mud.

    my Boggers measure in at 44 3/4", mounted on a 15" x 10" wheel, with about 8-10 psi, not on the blazer. :pimp1:

    on 42" iroks the tread depth is the same as a 42" TSL... it was the 39.5s that are "bald" from the factory...

    hmmm.. good point. Not really 'bald' compared to the 39.5s though... just 20/32 on them...

    i just find it hard to justify buying a bald tire, when you can take a tsl and groove the snot out of it, just my $.02
