    Not so sure about that but I know there are people who have been running them for a little while now... No body on here that I know of, but on other forums.

    thats the first ive seen of them for sale to the public...usually rockcrawler and buggies that run in a circut have acess to that stuff before the public...ive seen them on trucks on other forums to but never for sale....just an example a buddy of mine has a 4 runner he runs at tellico he runs with some guy who are in the weroc circut...he bought a set of tires from one of the guys that the public cant even buy...special compound and only a certain number of sets made...prolly the same for when the 54 came out...now available to everyone....

    Sweet. Is it just me, or does the tread look like it should be deeper to look proportional? But then i guess that would just increase breakage....

    I aggree looks bald the way it is now, thought that when i first saw it. Its only 27/32nds!!!!! If you dont want to break stuff you shouldnt be on 54s! =P
    Should be about 2 inches of tread to look right.. and a sidetread that expands a little more towards the rim. I personally dont think it would do anymore good than a 44 bogger..same tread depth.. sure you sit higher and float a tiny bit more but why bother if it aint gonna benefit that much.

    Guys,

    I'm a big Interco fan, so I don't want to come across as bashing or bad-mouthing. But 54" Boggers??? C'mon! Let's be real. The tire sizes being made now a days don't exactly make sense. Because the H1 and H2 craze with double beadlocks, all they are coming out with are 16.5's. This isn't exactly a wide desired rim size. With 17-20's in rim sizes becoming more popular and 15's diminishing, why isn't Interco and other tire manufactures coming out with more choices of those? I for one have noticed a big gap in the 38-44 sizing in Boggers. I'd be all over a 15x39.5x17 Bogger! That would be sweet! Even a 16x38x16 or in a 17 rim would be great! I'm not trying to come across as a cry-baby, but realistically, how many of y'all can run 19x54x20 tires, and justify $658.00 x 4 or 5, plus freight?

    Just food for thought.

    Manny

    Agreed, it's just too much tire.
