    Ok getting ready to buy some tires but cant decide which one to get

    super swampers Boggers 37 13 16 or same brand but in 35 12.5 16 ssr. Any pros or cons

    on this tire would be great help and I know they dont last forever this is not my daily driver.

    Also why do they not recomend that you use bead locks on the street ?

    Thanks

    Bo

    My 2 cents........
    I'm on my second set of boggers and I wouldn't use anything else. My wifes Jeep has 33'' SSRs and man they are some smooth riding tires. I guess it all boils down to the type of wheeling you do. If it's mainly mud then I would choose the boggers.

    MY K-5 DOESN'T LEAK... IT JUST MARKS ITS TERRITORY.

    heres my .02. When i bought my k5 it had swampers on it there a great tire off road but what scared the hell out of me was the ice. maybe if they were siped it would be a little better, mine is a daly driver. That being said i have heard that the SSR's last realy good as for the Bogger's i've been told they dont do well on side hill stuff. but whatever you go with make sure you rotate the hell out of them so they last.

    Drive it like you stole it !

    oh yea as for the bead locks on the street. i would say it's becuase you can't balance them, or not DOT aproved.

    Drive it like you stole it !

    From what I've heard those street legal bead locks from 4wpw are just a welded on peice of steel and they are for looks not function. I might be wrong.

    <font color=blue>It's true the 4WPW "street locks" are just a ring welded on with some shiny bolts in it. One of the guys in the 4WD club I'm in has them. They look cool but dont provide any function.</font color=blue>
