    Does anyone know if these tires are more heavy than a bogger of comparable size? Also.. do they wear well?

    Thanks

    according to a guy on pirate, a 14.00 x 20 XL (48"ish) with 75% tread = 200 lbs. yikes!

    Sounds about right. They're big, thick, heavy, and beastly. I definitely wouldn't want one for a girlfriend.

    yeah, the big michelins are about the heaviest-duty tires you can buy. sidewalls are 3/4"-1" thick on the bigger ones. yikes! I wouldnt run them on anything but rockwells or a 60 that was BUILT, but thats just me...
