ss boggers?

Does anyone have any idea how many miles i could get out of a set of SS Boggers? I'm getting ready to put a suspension lift on my 2000 tj and i really like the boggers but it will be my daily driver too. maybe someone has a suggestion for another aggressive tire with better tread life.

boggers for a daily driver?! lol. if you have to go with a swamper i would think that a trxus or tsl or ltb would be better. but ask mudweiser on here. he has 38" boggers.

If I recall, my buddy got about 15,000 miles out of his. (It took him about 4 years to drive that many miles). He hated driving it on the road because of the handling characteristics (bad flat spotting, following groves, etc.).

I've always felt this is one of the best all-around tires you can get. I plan to get them in 33. Can't beat it for 149.00 per from 4wd.com.

I've heard that the SS boggers have terrible on-road handling characteristics. If your looking for a good all around tire that won't break the bank, I would recomend BFG Mud Terrains. They handle great and provide good on and offroad, and are not too loud on the freeway. I have been running a set of BFGs for about a year now. I've taken them on mud, rock, snow, and even pavement, and fail have any complaints about them.

Not to try to turn this into a tire debate, but i run 33" ProComp xterrains on my daily driver. They clean great in the mud, glide over the sand, and i turn them backwards to climb and they've never dissapointed me... Just make sure you rotate them because they do like to get choppy driving on the street... Ive got around 25-30k on mine and still decent tread left...

Well to begin with, People buy boggers for one of 2 reasons. Either you run deep bogs, only use the truck for hunting and want maximum traction, or they buy them for the looks. Either reason is good enough i suppose depending on what you want them for. As for the handling, its a bogger, its not supposed to ride like an all terrain on the street. Most of the ride of the bogger depends greatly on how its balanced, and how well you take care of them. Flat spotting occurs in any bias tire when it gets cold or sits for weeks at a time in one position. The smaller sizes of boggers dont ride bad at all if they are rotated regularly and balanced properly. I can run my 38s up to 80 mph and then its starts getting choppy. As far as your mileage i can help you get alot more out of them and tell you alot about them. On my truck i run 38s-40s and i can get approx 25k out of them taking care of them. But take into consideration that is a heavy chevy. The lighter weight of the Jeep makes them not wear no where near as fast as say on a full size truck. They need to be rotated every 3k-5k just to make sure you dont start chopping them if you got bad shocks, components or what not. If you start to here them gettin really loud then just turn them around and run them backwards for a week, and they will bevel back out. They are a directional tire but short time running backwards has never hurt a set. Air pressure is a major thing when running a aggressive tire, just make sure you have a full footprint from the tire on the ground. Every vehicle is goin to have a different pressure due to weight. Ive got almost 10k miles on mine and they arent even showing signs of wearing much. I live 35miles from my job so you figure that one out. Balancing the smaller sizes, 29, 31, 33, 35 can be done relatively easy with bead mounted weights and ive done it with tractor trailer sticky weights for counters on the inside of the rim as well. But for 38s and up i use fiberglass beads or "equal" if you are familiar with it. Ive seen some people running tennis balls, golf balls, rubber bouncy balls and all manner of stuff inside the tires but most of the time these trucks only see trail and trailers. Just make sure you dont put a smaller size on a super wide rim and bloat it out so that its impossible to get the full footprint on the ground. Im running 15 wides and the 10-12" rim sizes do well on it. Ive seen some ridiuclous rim on boggers and they do wear prematurely. ill show you a pik to make you understand. 44x19.50 boggers on a 15x20 rim. But for looks you cant beat the bogger and performance in goo there is no comparison. Ive ran every type of swamper and i am partial to the boggers. Alot of horror stories out there i assure you, but mainly from people who ride on A/Ts switching to an extreme and not knowing how to handle it.
