    u should turn this into a poll, u'll probably end up with better results

    the wear of a tire isnt really based on the actual tire but the allignment of the rig and what kind of lockers it has.

    Why not the 38.5 x 15 Bogger? Or 39.5 x 18? Those would be at the top on my list. Don't expect these tires to last long on a DD heavy rig. My cousin had Swamper's on his Z71 DD that lasted about 8 months. And when he did replace them they looked like drag slicks!! But with the choices listed I would go with the wider Ground Hawgs over the narrower Bogger's.

    At least they are all Bias Ply :laugh:
    Off road there will be a clear winner in sand, mud, and rock.

    Okay, Ground Hawg's wear like iron, they last a long time with street duty. Now for the bad, Ground Hawg's are not the best tires for rock crawling, very stiff sidewalls. Ground Hawg's have always worked great for me in the mud and sand.

    I love mine...

    also people's other pet peeve with hawgs are the fact that a 38" hawg is not 38"

    hell my 40" hawgs on 16.5x12 rims are 38.8" but I did that on purpose as they were supposed to be on 16.5x9.75 rim.... on the 9.75" rim they are supposedly 39" tall......

    I look at it this way.. if you want a true 38... look at the 17x40x16.5 or so... 38" may come out to 37ish.... :crazy:
