    airing up!?! heh no i dont htink so, try airing down to around 12-10

    i run my swampers at 12-10 in the front, and the boggers 10-8 in the rear, 10front-8rear eversince ive had a fullsize spare just incase i lose a bead.

    i would say get a tire groover, and make some cuts in the tires, but i dont think those are the kinda tires your gonna want to cut....

    try airing down, and report back ;P
