I was going to run 53" MXL's on the yota, or tractor tires, but that might just change my mind!

I found some stuff on54” BOGGER FACTS VS FICTION

We’ve been reading a lot of crazy and inaccurate stuff on some of the forums and just want to get you some accurate information. We are closely involved with both Interco Tire and the head engineer at the plant, so these facts are right from the horse’s mouth.

First of all, it is a Bogger. It will be available in a 20” size first and a 17” size next. Other wheel sizes have not been determined yet. The tire that was at the show was a 20” tire, HOWEVER, the 20” plate was not ready yet, so the tire actually said 19.5x54x17 on it.

The tire at the show was a test tire. We picked it up at the factory Friday afternoon after the engineers had popped it from the mold late Thursday night. It was the first one out of the mold, so minor changes may still be made after the initial tires are tested and dissected. There were no other ones ANYWHERE, so nobody had any on their trucks at this show or anywhere else.

I didn’t have a tape measure with me at the show, but it looked to be about 4” taller than the 49 IROK that we had sitting beside it. I measured the IROK when we got back and it measured 48.5” with 15 lbs of air in it. The 54” Bogger only had about 10 lbs of air in it. Since the engineers had not mounted or tested it yet, they didn’t want us to put a bunch of air in it until they had tested it. The “spec air pressure” will be around 25 lbs. Since this one only had 10 lbs of air in it, the tire will probably grow with more air. It was mounted on a 20x12 wheel. The 49 was mounted on a 14” wide wheel.

This tire was heavier than the target weight. This tire weighed around 213 lbs. They are shooting for something in the area of 190-195 lbs.

The tread depth on this tire was 28/32”. It doesn’t look that deep compared to the other Boggers, probably because of just how big the tire is. But it is an optical illusion, only the 15x38.5 Bogger has a deeper skid depth. Just for comparison sake, a 44” Bogger has 26/32” of tread.

The pricing has not been set yet since tire prices are determined in part by weight and the actual weight has not been set yet. They are hoping to bring it in under $650.00 per tire.

As long as everything goes OK and there are no technical issues, they are hoping to release the tire in 6-8 weeks.

I know of a guy who was running a 60 front with 44's i think the thing barley made 600 hp weak motor and he never broke, but know he is putting in 2 1/2 tons. He did do one of the best burnouts i have seen. Never knew boggers could grow so big.

why would you even bring up that guys truck . its a rusty, bent up, piece of junk that can barely turn the tires , and only runs around the edge of the mud because he gets stuck in 6 inches of mud just ask mudman his truck sits there with his truck thats why they are called "team edge fest"

lol thats great, barely turns the tires. I love the look of the truck you never know when something is going to fall off, but at least if something did it would be on the edge of the hole so it wouldnt be hard to get out.
