    My buddy has 35" boggers on his blazer. He made 2 mexico trips and 1 california trip and they wore down well below half tread.(we live in AZ so mexico and cali arent far away) They dont like long trips at all.

    Why not check into some radial tires like the 38x15.5x16.5 Radial Swampers instead? These will last a lot longer than those others you are mentioning.

    I know three guys who are running Boggers on their trucks and all of them say the Boggers are absolutely horrible on the road (rough and bouncy ride, very loud, and wear quickly)......and the sad thing is that 2 of these guys were running the bias TSL's before and still think the boggers are that much worse on the road....though they love them off-road.

    i love my Boggers but my rig see's 30-100 miles a month on the street. on the street HOLY cow do they suck, you get the wondering and floating of biasply and don't even get me started on the flat spotting. When it's cold out side it can take over 10 miles for the flat spots to smooth out.

    well....do they make ground hawgs in the same size as the mickey's?? yes it is a show truck, and also my DD/tow rig. and i occasionally use it for a lil bit o mudding. what i really want would be the TSL radials in that size....but they dont make em even close to that size

    38's are the largest in radials, but you can get bigger in bias.

    you would want to get 44" ground hawgs, they measure 40". I'm seriously considering getting them, my 42" swampers are about done for.
