Need Help! Bogger or TSL Radial?
 
Looking for some help here.. I have the opportunity to trade my 38x12.5x15 TSL's straight up for a set of 38.5x11x16 Boggers. Both sets are equal tread. The boggers are 15lbs lighter per tire according to the interco website, but my worry is that they'll hook up too good and I'll start breaking axles.

The truck is offroad only, hence my interest in the trade.

What are your thoughts? Anyone have experience with both?

I had 38.5x15 boggers on my rig before I went to 43x14.5 tsl sx's.My boggers we're good in the mud but they we're wider than the 11" ones(I personally don't like the look or performance of the thin 11"boggers)keep your tsl's you'll be happier with them.

yeah it's a mud only truck basically.. but that varries from sandy mud to clay. It see's a bit of snow as well, which I know the boggers would be terrible in but it's not very often that it gets out in the winter anyways, maybe once or twice

Thanks for your input. My biggest concern with the boggers is that I wont be able to spin them fast enough to make them actually work properly, especially since they're skinnies and designed to dig. I am on stock 2nd gen 1500 running gear right now (5.9 with 3.55's) and I can spin the tsl's really well in low range.

I have had both. Unless you do ALOT of mud and loose crap stick with the TSLs. They are a better all around tire.
