    Getting some Boggers to play with in the mud. I run my MTR's on the rocks. I have both 15x8 and 15x9.5" custom wheels. I can't decide on getting a 35x10.50 Bogger or a 35x14.50 Bogger. I run 4.88's the gearing is back to factory stock (except for my dual Marlin's eh, eh 205:1) on the hwy. I run a stock 22-RE in my flatbed.......hence power is well..........stock. What would you run for the best mud performace? Thanks guys.

    depends on your mud really....

    for racing, skinny

    if you can reach the bottom, skinny

    if it's soupier mud, skinny

    if it contains lots of grass/chunks, wider

    if it's thick, wider

    if you have major HP to stay on top of the mud, wider

    if you REALLY like washing chunks of mud off your rig, wider ;)

    I would go with the 10.50's. The skinny Boggers tend not to get clogged up as much with their tighter tread pattern, especially if you don't have the HP to spin them and clean them out. Personally, I would get Q78 TSL for mud. The tread depth is about the same as a 44" TSL. Mine's going to see a fair amount of mud, and I'll likely run them.

    I like 'em skinny...but thats for the clay mud on the east coast that normally has a bottom. They seem to do better on rocks around here too.
