I'm looking to get a weekend pair of mud tire/mud drag racing tires. I have two ideas I would like people to vote on and then other option and give me your feedback.

Option 1. 37x13x17 Super Swamper Bogger... the baddest mud tire around. I found some 17's to buy.

Option 2. 33x15.50x18 Baja Claw

Option 3. 35x13.50x18 Baja Claw

Two and three would be mounted on some Mickey Thompson Classic II rims

Open to other ideas. I have 20" rims right now, can get 17's or 18's cheap.

Thanks guys :thumbsup:thumbsup

If you are looking for a good mud tire but still want something streetable...go with the Nitto Mud Grappler...good tire in the mud and tolerable noise level at highway speed.

Plan on only putting them on for events, weekend mudding trips. We might even put them in the bed of the truck if I'm pullin the trailer with jeeps..put them on when we get there. More of a competition tire for the mud drags and weekends

I vote for Toyo MT's:thumbsup

They do have a really good selection of sizes... 500 per tire is a kick in the nads tho...:bang

A 38x15.50x18 would get some **** done but you think more than a bogger? The Toyo's certainly would be more useful all around...

Anyone really get into some chit with the Toyos?

Toyos are nowheres near as capable as swampers or boggers. Ask tank, he has boggers and
I think he has mentioned that they work way better than his friends mt's. My 35" toyo mt's have don't self clean the tread very well unless you spin them really fast.

Watch Craigslist for used tires I got 17 inch ultra rims with brand new 35 inch toyos mt's for $850 off a rolled truck.

Found some stock 17's for 125 bucks... the three tires sizes I listed aren't very common but I'm on the lookout for sure. :thumbsup

Toyo MT's all day long! About 45k on my set now, and still over half tread. Mostly highway and a little gravel. In the snow and mud they hold their own.

Nitto Mud Grappler or the new Nitto Trail Grappler MT's.

The Mud grapplers will work great for you; I believe. They do have a lot of highway noise but if you are going to be using them for comp. only then they would be great.
I plow snow with mine and love them. They self clean very well in mud and in snow.

Hope it helps,
Let us know what you pick.

I would go for the SSR TSL LTB or the IROK's. . .

I have Awesome luck with those tires and tires of similar design.

so there are quite a few that think a nitto or toyo can out perform a super swamper bogger eh?

that is interesting to me, because the boggers seem to be the badest of the bad for mud



anyone had experience with some wide baja claws in the mud>???

BOGGERS!!! alll day. if i was in your situation, it woudl be between boggers and TSL's. that woudl be the only tire i would consider if i was just usin them offraod. IMO boggers is the baddest mud tire. now if i was gonna run it on the road to, i woudl go toyo open countries or nitto mud grapplers.

I tired some bogger once i got stuck more with them then i did the TSL's. . .
So i would have to respectfully disagree . . .

I guess the terrain and mixture of soil's would have to be taken into consideration as to which tires work best and also what type of vehicle there on.

I have a Pro Comp X-Terrains. They kinda look like a Mickey Thompson. They are only 13.5. Clean real nice but if I was lookin for a nothin but mud tire it would be a Super Swamper of some sort. My boss has an 02 F250 with 16 inches of lift and Irocs and he goes on and on about them.

If your not gonna do much road driving and want them mainly for off road I'd go with the Super Swamper Bogger's.

I vote for Toyo MT's:thumbsup
I also vote for these. I love my set, they have 20k on them and still look awesome. They ride great on the street and perform very well off the road, even though I don't do much hardcore off-roading with my rig.
