    19.5x54 SUPER SWAMPER BOGGER
    UNVEILED AT INDY JAMBOREE
    National Tire & Wheel teamed up with Interco Tire to introduce the all new 19.5x54 Bogger at the 25th Annual Special Events 4WD Jamboree. The tire was so new that we had to send a truck to the factory Friday morning after the engineers had worked late into the night on Thursday to get the first one done. This big boy was still steaming as it left the plant and headed for it’s unveiling at the Jamboree.
    The tire will be DOT approved and the first size available will be a 19.5x54x20 with a 17" version coming soon after. Other rim sizes are being discussed, but have not been scheduled yet as of this release. The tire still needs to go through more factory testing and also through DOT tests, but release date is scheduled tentatively in 6-8 weeks.
    We are taking preproduction orders now, so if you want to be the biggest and baddest on your block, give us a call today.
    Special thanks to everyone at Interco Tire and George Noble for getting this tire to us in time for Indy.

    id rather have them come out with a 42" SX. how much money are they possibly make on those? not many ppl are going to be able to run those w/o running 2.5ton gear. 42" SX would sell much better...oh well

    ok I'll say it...no matter what they're used for or what else could have been made those are pretty cool. I can't wait to see them just to see sheer size. or to see them in action out in the mud. with that said

    I'm with what most everyone else is saying though. There are so many other styles and sizes that should have been in production first. I'm still waiting on my dang 42in Boggers!!!! now the jump for them are from 40-44-54. I mean c'mon.

    If you want to see who'll run them come out to socal. I guarentee all the HUGE mall crawlers will be running them. And it'll be the same as the 49's. You'll see them out in Glamis running half-ton or one-ton drivetrains and trying to figure out why they're breaking parts. That's gotta be who they're depending on selling to.

    Anything less than a 17" rim would be too much sidewall I would imagine?

    i don't think you could fit enough breaks with rims smaller than 17's

    i was just told interco is currently developing a 42'' SX by a guy who said he has known about the 54" boggers for 4 months... now they need to get the hint and make the 42x15 bogger

    thats true, what i ment was 2.5ton minimum, no point in even trying to run 1ton gear.

    i mean i know the 14bolt could handle it easy:p: , thats when having that 14b front would work nicely :bow: :haha:

    Something tells me that 95% of the rigs that end up running these tires will either be gracing the covers of faux 'wheeling magazines, or will be trailered to the events.

    i know alot of offroaders that will be in line for these.

    Besides I think OEM is wanting to test out some new 2" shafts for the rocks so I think we may see the 2.5 tons working out.
