    I'm getting ready to order tires for my K5. I want to go with a 16" wheel and here are the tires I'm looking at
    1 38.5x11x16 boggers
    2 37x13x16 boggers
    3 38x13x16 TSL
    I have about 8" of lift and cut fenders, so I'm thinking the 37" may be too small, but the 38.5 boggers look pretty skinny. I have heard from one person they realy like the skinny boggers, any one else.

    Thanks

    Hey Norm, do you remember the bonehead at Sand Lakes with the burgundy K5 that blew his front end in the bowl? He was running the 38x11 boggers on his truck...I thought they looked pretty good!
    Personally I'd lean towards the 38x13 TSL though...[​IMG]

    I am considering the same tires, and I don't want to go with 37's either. Anybody have some pics of a 38 x 13 TSL mounted?

    A guy I work with just bought a set of the 13/38 16's to put on his '68 M-715. He should be mounting them tonight and I will try to get some pictures if you are interested.

    ya thats him norm lol personally i would go with the 38x13x16 i like the boggers but would rather have the width of the ssr's
    in the sand wider will give you better flotation and on the street wider will give you more stability i personally will not go below 12.5 wide

    My friend had a set of 38.5x11 Boggers on a CJ. They worked really well! I know he loved them.

    just saw a set of 38.5x14.5x15 TSL SX tires, damn those things are awesome. Huge voids. You know how some swampers in the same line are semi aggressive and some are damn aggressive? Well these are monsters. One of them was stacked on a 39" bogger and made the bog look like an astroturf tire. That'll be my next set. Oh yeah on 15x10 MRT beadlocks of course!!!

    There's a guy here in Kingman that has the 38x11x16 Boggers on his one ton locked short bed and he swears by them...I have the 37x13x15" Boggers on 15x10 wheels with 3 and 1/2 " back-spacing on my Blazer with 9" of lift ...I can make them hit the fenders pretty good!!..OH..They are cut pretty far back..So far I like them...My next tire will be the Good Year MTR 37x12.5x15 ..I saw them on two Rock-crawling Heeps from Currie axle company at the Hot Wheels power Tour that rolled through town the other day...Those tires kicked major ARSE!!!!

    I had 38.5x11 boggers two years ago and they worked great. hey were skinny but light and I got through some nice holes no problem.
    I can only find one pic with them on. It's kind o hard to see them in this shot

    Nice pic, but do you ever wheel it :-) . Thanks for the pic. I was leaning to the boggers, but I just got a killer deal on some 90% 39.5 TSL's .

    Skinny tires are where it's at around here. In our mud, I think regular TSL's pull better than Boggers. The voids on the TSL's are wider than the Boggers' and the sticky stuff cleans out better.

    Lift It, Lock It, LIVE IT!!!
