    For those of you out there running the Super Swamper TSL/Boggers, how do you like them? How do
    they ride/wear/sound? I am about ready to replace my tires and am considerin these. Are they worth the money?

    Whats wrong with big and wide?

    I got TSL's. They are the sheeee-it off road. On road they are loud, flat spot when their cold...did I mention they were loud?[​IMG]

    They're not the best tire for on-road manners...but i'll be replacing mine soon with another set of either TSL's or TSL/SX's (depending on the size I go with)

    I have TSL's also and I second Rene... I never have had boggers though but have thought about them for my next tire.

    The only bad things I have ever heard about them is that sometimes in wet or loose conditions they tend to slide while side hilling...

    I have 35x16 Boggers on my 75 Jimmy, while 2 are almost bald they are still very good in the mud. A buddy of mine has 35x14 Boggers on his Bronco which are almost new. His shake more than usual because they are not balanced. When slowing down to a stop at an intersection you can feel every lug thumping the pavement. The more worn out they get the louder they are.

    I have TSLs front and Boggers rear. If you ask about wear on them, are you sure you want either?

    They are a little loud. TSLs are better over all than Boggers. But, nothing beats Boggers in the mud. Only negative are they dig real bad when you are stuck. Adn they are a little worse on sideways slip than the TSLs. So, I put the TSLs on the front and the Boggers in the rear!

    Oh, and the Boggers break parts with a heavy foot. Any axle, not just 1/2 ton stuff.

    Being a newbie to the whole offroad scene, (I just wrench on Zakk's rig) how many on road miles is considered acceptable on a set of boggers or swampers?
    TIA Guys,
