    Worn out Boggers, or Brand new Gumbo\'s?

    I asked this on a different board, but I didn't get many replies due to the elementary aspects of the question, but here it goes anyway.

    I have 39.5 Boggers that have about 50% tread leaft on them. And my uncle Rod offered me a while back if I wanted to trade him for his 40" Gumbo mudders. His tires haven't ever been on the pavement. They have been in 2 or 3 mudpits, and that is it. He wants the boggers so that he can cut the small lugs out, and put them on one of hte mudracers.
    If I got these, I would groove them much like the ORD K5 has the TSL's grooved.

    Should I keep the Boggers? Or trade for the Gumbos?

    damn thats a tough one heh. How much pavement is your rig gonna see?

    those gumbos will wear on the road a lot better then the bogs, and since your bogs are already at 50% id say the gumbos will do just about the same on the trail.... my vote is for the gumbos.

    I think I am going to trade him, and groove them like this.

    i prefer boggers. cut them up yourself and keep them. they tend to be softer and wrap around things better when cut right. also i dont like how wide the gumbos tend to be.

    BTW... 50% is an estimation. I don't really know how much tread I am supposed to have.

    thats seems deeper then 50%.... take a couple more pics of them

    It all boils down to how much street you have planned for your tires....???......
