    Most of the links with pics show up as [​IMG] . Does anyone have some pics of the 38.5x15 boggers mounted? Some people say that they run really small and others say they are true sized :confused: Just looking for some pics before I decide on what I'm gonna get. Thanks

    I run a set of 15x38.5x16.5 boggers on Hummer H1's and they stand up nice on a 8.75 wide wheel. I can tell you that 10 min. after I bought them I wished that I had got 18x39.5x16.5's , like most offroaders , you always want more rubber. The thing that I like the most about these tires is there cost, there like 110-120$ a tire less than a 39.5 !! I don't have any pics of my Blaz. with them on but In a fiew days I'm putting them on a buddys Sub and maybe I can snap a shot or two. The K5 is down for a overhaul , nothing more than a pile of parts. :(

    I don't think that Interco offers more tire for the money than the 15x38.5 Bog. IMO.

    Thanks Jeff

    my buddy just replaced his swampers 4 boggers and they did look a little smaller, and they had decent tread on them.

    I also forgot that I had a 15x38.5x16.5 Bogger in my shed, brand new, never had air in it. Took the tape to it and it looks like 38" and thats tire only , no wheel. It's sitting next to a 95-98% new 36x12.5x16 TSL on a 16x10 wheel with 32psi and it's 2-2.5" taller. I say that the only time these tires look small is when there next to a 39.5 or 44". IMO

    How 'bout this for a tire comparison. 38.5/15/15 boggers on the Yukon and 36/13.60/15 Iroks on the bronco

    Boggers don't seem so small here!

    JK5- I guess if you cut enough fender you can make anything look small :D

    They're small....especially if you run a d60/14bff combo....
    I was dragging my axles. :rolleyes:

    The reason for all the trimming is to make room for 44's...
    I just put the boggers on for my top install. (the installer needed the rig lower)
