    Okay, my truck is going to need some new rubber... so I need to make a decision as to what kind of rubber I"m gonna put under it. What are some good mud tires? Right now I'm looking at a tire from 36"-38" needs to be for a 16.5 wheel. I've already priced out boggers and super swamper TSLs. What other tires would be good to add to my list. All I need right now is what tire works for you, I'm going to make a list and then research each type of tire individually before I make my choice. Thanks a lot guys.

    Oh, I almost forgot, if any of you guys have any pictures of your trucks on some 36"-38" tires with about 5"-6" of lift, could you post up a link so I could check out what they look like. Sorry to be a bother...

    Is your burbn' a daily driver? Also, do you run a lot of mud in those tires? How do they do?

    i run 39 boggers on my blazer...it can be driven daily but i try not to since it eats gas...honestly if you want the best mud tire on the market i think the bogger is your best choice...they come in the 37 inch size now(for a 16.5 inch rim) and they are only like 230 a piece or something...

    if you want some pics or opinions on what they do check out this set of webshots Look under UCP on the rocks pics

    or ask anybody that was at paragon like wayne or boss

    those things eat

    Later

    A buddy of mine has some TSL/SX's on his daily driven rig, and they are awesome in the mud. Not as good as Boggers, but better on a daily driver. They flat-spot overnight some, but once they warm up they are fine. Ride kinda rough because of the sidewalls, but nothing unbearable.
