    we were told that this was cut for competition and only used twice. you could see that too much chunking was going on with this tire.

    wear is the same, no difference.

    IMHO, that custom cutting looks bad azz, but with boggers i dont really think it is neccassary to do any cutting. maybe siping.

    you're right in a way. what this type of grooving stops, is some of the side slipping. these tires need help in that area.

    This is a pic of a cut 44" bogger, the cuts are a little wider here than in those other tires. Wider cuts are mo betta, for lateral slide control! This is actually from WOLF359's Cruiser from TTC this year. He runs with the BogginFreaks here in Calgary.

    Ive seen where you CUT the small treds off so all you have is the big ones works good if there bald or you just want CRAZY mud traction. I think it would wear really fast though.

    I think that would work great in the mud! Horrible everywhere else though. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I would like to do that with a set, when I get some. I've heard if you want to turn in the mud at speed you NEED to do this.
    One of the reasons I've been thinking of running them on the rear and TSLs on the front.

    <font color="red">Sorry to go OT, but sometimes, they do. You know White Knight is it's own rig right. Check 'em both out

    White Knight home page

    Wolf359 home page

    There's a couple of other killer rigs from Calgary entered in this years TTC. DJ's BogginFreaks '79 Bronco, Clayton's (federal metals) Toyota (the crazy guy who jumped a over a pick-up for fun and destroyed his D60 front), video of that on this page. </font color>
