what do you need 37's for if your driving mostly street? i hope your jeep is up for it.

i run the bfg muds and they are great. good in mud and definitley last more than 2 years. not sure if they make them in 37's though.

I always ran the TSL Super swampers on my mudding rigs good tires for the cost but had a hard time keeping them balanced, as far as lasting that amount of time they might be a poor choice.

running mt-r's now and they are great tires so far

Not sure if the tire comes in that size but....My rig is my daily driver and in the mud almost every weekend. BFG M/T KM's have done great.

GREAT OHDINNS' RAVEN!!!Let me re-phrase. I need Real mud tires. If i wanted bfg's i would go to tire kingdom. I need something that is agressive and will last me a good 2 annual years or 25k mi at least. How long will boggers last me? And by the way lost, your tires do get chewed up fast and they dont perform that great....I hate your tires.

hmmmm...i'd say you could drive all the way from your house to your mailbox before the boggers were all the way worn.

I heard if you can take care of them they should last a good 2 years but i want someone w/ experience before i make a decision. I dont mind buying a new set, thats no problem but they have to last me 2 years and dominate in the mud, I know that boggers are the best in the mud, but what is considered 2nd best?

this months JP magazine has an article of tires
and for the best all around tire according to there tire rating (street,mud,sand,and heavy rock) the pro comp xterrain had three tire score on all

but I was going to run swamper tsl radials and deal with the load lug slap but I ended up with the xterrains and I've tried them in a bunch of different terrain no complaints at all
good traction off road and on but if you are dealing with that paint staining gooey mud like Louisiana or Mississippi mud then you probably want some swampers
