    My buddy was telling me about if you mount a bogger backwards they last forever and have good road manners. I am wondering if thats true and if it still works good offroad. IF it does, why doens't everyone mount them backwards!? Thats what I'm wondering.

    I would very much doubt you would have any perceivable difference on the life or road manners of Boggers when mounted backwards. There might be some small differences in traction on loose surfaces when mounted backwards, but again I can't imagine there would any remarkable difference.

    Sorry man laws of physics don't change when a tire is mounted backwards.Friction on pavemnet is the same forward or backwards. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thought rubber compound was reason for low highway miles and better offroad traction.Friend had to use spare on side that it was backwards.In mud on the gas {in 2WD}it would walk toward side turned correctly.They are directional tires. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gifer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Ya I've heaed something like that too, a guy told me that if you run boggers backwards on pavement not that it increases life span but that it "sharpens" the lugs for better offroad traction /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif can it be true? Does pavement put an uneven wear on the tread block? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
