    I just found a set of 38 15.50 16.5 Gumbo Mudders at a local tire shop. Guy said he'll sell them to me for $600. These are brand new never mounted. Should I buy these or save up for the 39" boggers I wanted. Sounds like a good deal to me but they're not what I've been looking at.

    What kind of wheeling do you do? Gumbo mudders suck the fat one on the rocks, but they're pretty good in da mud. If you like crawling save up for some swampers...

    Mainly swamps, dirt roads, fields, clay, your basic trails.

    Also, not sure what size you were getting in Boggers...but the gumbo mudders run alot smaller than swampers in the same size. At least that was my experience with the one set I had. For instance if you are REALLY wanting a set of 39.5 Boggers...and are gonna settle for the 38" gumbo mudders because they 'are only an inch and a half differnce', the mudders are gonna be ALOT smaller than the 39.5 Boggers...probably closer to a 36" swamper.
