    You get more miles with Hawgs,but,the sidewalls are heaver and don't flex as well.Like traction and ride of swampers.Don't have to air down as low to wrap around rocks/ /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have 44" hawgs on my truck. They still have alot of tread, but thre sidewalls are cracking!! very hard tire, don't flex the walls much. When my finances improve, I want a set of boggers. good mudding tire, but not much on rocks and stuff.

    Just so you know you might give a little more info on what you want to do with the tires to get more help. I red your post about not getting help, and not enough info seems to be the problem in my mind on this one. If you describe the truck, terrain the tires are to be used in, how much offroad and street driving you do, would help people help you on the info you want to get.

    I'm not a fan of Ground Hawgs at all. I much prefer the traction of TSLs over Hawgs. I do give the Hawgs credit for longer treadlife. The jury is still out as to whether they ride better. I also like the fact that my spare (a 39.5 Bogger) is the same height as a 44" Hawg. I'll keep my 44" TSLs any day.

    I love my 39.5" TSL's. I've put about 9,000 miles on mine and they don't show much signs of wear.

    Hawgs are the worst tire I have ever seen in the snow.

    I'd take the Bogger or TSL over the Ground Hawg as well. I just wish I could get more miles out of them.
