Question Swampers / boggers - What should I pay??

Hey guys,
it is about time for me to put some new meats under the rubiclone. My boggers(33x10.50 - 15) are about 30% tread..

My question is:

Anyone have a hook-up on a place to buy and save a few bones?

Form what I have found on the net, and at local tire shops, it looks like I am going to pay about $200 per tire...is that about right?

sounds about right. $195 per tire at 4wp online at the moment. If you groove your current tires that are at 30% you can breath new life into them and get more use out of em. I plan to wear my bias swampers down to the carcas but I groove mine so they'll still grip the rocks.

Well, I have never grooved a tire....I have gotten my groove on a couple times..HAHA! Seriously, what all is involved in grooving the tire??

There are different types of tire groovers. The one I used I bought it from SpeedwayMotors.com

http://www.speedwaymotors.com/p/6583...ving-Iron.html

I also bought a few dozen 1/4" cutting blades to go with it (only needed 2 though for all 4 tires).

Basically just let the iron heat up for about 15 minutes and then begin grooving. I sat on a little stool with wheels so I could roll the tire accross the garage floor as I'd cut it.

Slow and light pressure is all it takes. If pushing too hard and fast your arm will get really tired/sore.

attached is a blown up photo of my avatar showing the pattern I used when I grooved my TSL/SX tires. Your pattern would be different of course but the principle is the same. The grooves give additional biting edges to grab onto things like rocks and allows the tires to not be so stiff and helps them to flex/conform to the rocks better

and here is a link to some other peoples ideas they used for tire grooving... some of them are the boggers

Any of you guys have a set of swamper boggers for sale?? 35x10.50x15 (or 12.50).

Anyone know of a tire retailer that actually sells Interco tires?? Everything I find is "interweb" we, can ship them for $150...
