October 7, 2003Which tire is better in the 35" category? I was looking at these tires because they look nice and they claim to clean well while driving which increases traction as ya all know. This is a plus. Does one wear faster then the other or anything like that? Please help out.

October 7, 2003I think Boggers will wear faster. But you aren't goingt o get alot of road mileage out of either.
October 7, 2003i don't know what yer intention is but if yer gonna spend more time off road, especially in some harsh stuff, and not much on road, go with the boggers otherwise go with the TSLs b/c boggers wear faster when they're on the road
October 7, 2003even though i love my tsl's i think next i'm going with with boggers, when i get my suspension done. 38s maybe
October 7, 2003They both wear out quick on the road, , my next tires are ground hawgs
October 8, 2003boggers wear faster than TSLs
i heard that Boggers last about 10K on the road and TSLs last anywhere from 20-30K not 100% sure, but i know a guy who just got them and thats what hes expectin out of them
October 8, 2003where do you go off-roading? what type of stuff do you wheel in?
October 8, 2003ozzy oz grounhawgs rock my next tires will be em too
October 8, 2003Good Ol' Indiana clay. Friends and I dug a mud whole that used to be used as a pond and field it with dirt it in and go through that. Not bad, on dry days its still 6" deep mud and on rainy days its a good 2'. Its great. I would only use those tires anyways for offroad and show, nothing else. More offroad then anything. I also plan on buying a set of AT's for it as well for the road, but I was curious about the life of each. I dont wanna buy a tire that with offroad abuse will give under pressure.
October 8, 2003FYI, if you run boggers don't run them on the front of your truck since you have a 2wd. You won't be able to steer in the mud at all. Boggers are very bad if they're not being powered. If you're just doing flat mud whomping which it sounds like you're doing and you're only going to run these offroad then I'd go with a set of boggers on the back, and a set of TSLs on the front. This way you get the straight forward traction of boggers, and you can still half ass steer with the front since they're not being powered.
Also how much lift are you planning on to your truck to fit 35s? A 6" lift on a pre 97 2wd F150 will be about enough to fit 33s and still allow for a little bit of flexing without cutting the fenders. What I'd do if I was gonna run it in the mud would be to do a 4" suspension lift and then cut the fenders till the 35s fit. It worked on my Ranger. I've got tons of ground clearance but the center of gravity is low enough that its incredibly stable. Its the best of both worlds.
