33x12.50 vs 35x10.50???

I hate to beat a dead horse, as I have asked a similar question before but,

I currently am running 33x12.50 maxxis bighorn mt, I would like to go 35x10.50 boggers, would that be possible? It seems to me that the weight would be about the same. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Oh yeah, I also plan on getting rid of the 15x8 steel wheels I'm running and getting 15x8 aluminum. Thanks

the boggers will probably be heavier but you can look at intercos website to find the weight specs on that tire......if youve still got a d35 you will explode that thing on a regular basis......with my 33x12.5 boggers i broke 10 d35 axles in 6 months

i've had 35X12.5 BFG MT's of my D35 for three years and its fine, it all depends on how hard u wheel and if u use the gas pedal or not

I bet they're going to get on the flares. I put spacers on my 4" springs and my 12.5s rub pretty good., but I like it.

boggers break parts, plain and simple especially for people who stand on the throttle like flattietj and myself do. get a ford 8.8 in there before you get boggers and carry lots of d30 shafts. i would be willing to bet 35 inch boggers COULD weight as much as half again more than your current tires depending on what width you have now and the size you get.

The 33x12.5-15 Maxxis bighorns weigh 58lbs. The 33x12.5-15 boggers weigh 65lbs and 35x10.5-15 boggers weigh 64lbs.

They weigh about 10% more.

Good point. 35s are too much for a stock D-30, chromoly up-grades seem to hold up well.

not to get too physicsy but the equation would be (mr^2)(alpha) so not only are u adding mass but u are adding radius and radius is squared so the torque on that wheel will be a LOT more
