Review of the Super Swamper TSL / Bogger (TSL = Three Stage Lug)
This is the mother of all street legal mud tires.  If you're looking for a good mud tire, this is the one everyone talks about.  Its huge lugs resemble the paddles of a riverboat and perform in much the same way propelling the vehicle forward through the mud.  The three stage lugs and deep voids in the aggressive tread design extends down onto the sidewalls to add just that much more bite in the deeper mud.  With 6, 8 or 10 plys in the ply rating (model dependant) this tire has a strong, puncture resistant, tear resistant sidewall, however tends be on the stiff side until well broken in.

The Bogger is the preferred tire for many rock crawlers who say the Bogger performs very well on the rock.  Its seriously aggressive tread also allows it to perform well in snow and sand as well as the changing conditions of the wooded trails.  One drawback to its tread design is the fact that it may not grip as well when lateral traction is needed as when the vehicle may be traveling sideways along a hill rather than up or down it.  In this case the tread may act more as skis allowing the vehicle to slip sideways and the lack of sipes doesn't help either. 

 

Interco Tire Corporation attempts to give this tire some street friendly attitude with minor success by breaking up the lug pattern to avoid a harmonic vibration but regardless the ride is quite rough, uneven and loud on paved road.  Needless to say this tire is not one you want to commute to work every day with as it produces plenty of street noise and does not handle very well on pavement.  However is is street legal, D.O.T. approved and actually does wear quite well, probably due to its harder compound. 

 

For the weekend warrior, this is a great second set of tires for the weekend offroad event to be replaced by a set of all terrains for the Monday morning commute.  Some offroaders prefer to mount a set of Boggers on the rear with a set of Super Swamper TSL SSRs on the front for a great combo.  Available sizes range from the 30.9" up to the 44.1" in tread widths from 9.8" to 15.4" in various combinations.  Available rim sizes in 15", 16" and a 17x10 model.

My opinion?  Personally I think this tire kicks butt.  I got a 33 inch set on my lifted 79 F-150 that I use mostly on the muddy trails on a friends farm south of here.  We do a lot of muddin and my truck can get though all kinds of slop.  I used to have a set of BFG mud tires and these blown them away.  I had to get some off-set rims cause they rubbed a little at full turn but I needed rims anyway.

I installed a set of Boggers on my 66 Kaiser CJ5.  Wheel spacers were necessary since the large lugs made contact with the front leaf springs and with the inner wall of the wheel well in the rear.  I got lockers front and rear.  The combo of lockers, Boggers, low gearing and light weight works great.  I can say I have not been stuck once even in the thickest mud holes.  Where we go wheeling, the snow has been 2-3 feet at times, more in drifts and the Boggers tear right through it.  Street is not an issue as my Jeep is not exactly D.O.T. approved.  Couldn't have picked a better tire.

A very tough tire.  I beat the hell out of my Boggers on rocks and through some of the thick gooey mud we got here in eastern TN.  The sideway is pretty stiff until its broken pretty good.  I air mine down to less than 10 psi and was still pretty stiff on my 68 Bronco until I had wheel in on them for over a year.  They take a beatin though.  They're all sliced up in the lugs from heavy throttling through the mud and rocks but still holding up after 3 years of hard wheeling.  Great tire to beat on.

Tires work well on street... as long as you have the right balance them.  That seems to be a big part of it.  It took a while but it was worth it in the end.  Thanks [Interco Tire Corporation] for a great tire!!

I live in Florida where there is more mud and sand than there is tourists, you just have to know where to go and i do.  Unfortunately we don't get any snow so you're on your own for that one. When I hit it in my lifted 1990 f-150 I 'Go Big Or Go Home'. So needless to say I needed a tire with the same interests that I had. Interco kept me in mind when designing this awesome tire. I used to have Procomp x-terrain and all-terrain and there is no comparison. Everyone says that Boggers where out fast on the road,  Well if you were smart then you would have them rotated, balanced, and aligned regularly. I did and mine have barely wore down, but again, my truck is a daily driver. In conclusion, if you do go slingin' do yourself a huge favor and get tires with some meat on them because when I have to come and pull you out I WILL laugh........

Great Tire!! I use these on a 2005 F-350 Turbo Diesel. The truck is very heavy, so the engine has to work a little to push it out of deep mud. I have intentionally stuck my truck into deep mud bogs in 2WD, and then rolled right out in 4LOW. Loud and shakey on the street especially after 50 mph, but OUTSTANDING off road. Never been stuck!! Really buries in deep sand, but if you have enough power, you'll roll out.

i liked the fact that this tire could go anywhere and anything but i used my truck for a daily driver as well as mudding so as far as a daily driver tire it sucks. It is really loud and wears down really quickly. But it looks cool as hell. As for mud and whatnot you wont be disappointed!

This tire does just what it was designed to do and more. as with any bias ply tire it is a little sketchy on the street. they don't wear bad at all. they will chop but you wont notice any extra noise as they will make your radio useless from the get go. Greasy mud feels a lot like thick gravel. They do really well in snow and sand just remember if you start spinning let off or you will be sunk to the frame like that. I don't think id buy another set for my daily driver but I do think everyone needs to try a set.

better than I ever imagined my 38.5s get me through holes in 2wheel that buried me in 4wheel with Swampers. The only place they lack is trying to get out of ruts but it don't matter much as they will pull me thru the other side anyway. Definitely a must have for any serious Bogger.

I have a set of 35x16x16.5 Super Swamper Boggers on my 85' 3/4 ton K5 Blazer right now and thought I would share their characteristics.

First off they are probably the craziest looking tires out there and get attention from EVERYBODY. When they are relatively new they ride very well and are somewhat quiet but as soon as they get a few miles on them and the lugs start to slant backwards and the little lug wears down further than the larger ones....they get a little annoying. They get very loud at this point and start shaking pretty good around 5mph or so. Never get caught in bumper to bumper traffic with boggers because the pittter patter of the lugs at 5mph will drive you nuts. They do have a distingtable air plane type sound that I love though.:D

If you plan on running 14" wide rims be prepared for some cracking of the sidewalls right around the bead of the tire. It is a little spooky looking but I have driven mine for 5K like that without a problem. Everyone that I know that has had boggers and 14's have had the same type of sidewall cracking. If you have an IFS truck be prepared to have your front end aligned religiously and keep your bars cranked down because they wear fast when they aren't kept flat on the pavement. Solid axle trucks should expect at least 15K out of them especially with a Small block between the framerails. It looks like I should be able to get 20K out of them no prob but for some reason my K5 has always been easy on tires.

Offroad they are unbeatable. In the mud they have tons of traction and you can go through just about anything if you have the horsepower to spin them, they hog a LOT of power through the mud. THey will pull my healthy 406 down pretty good in deep mud. In shallower mud they will not want to turn vey well. I have always had problems with my K5 going strait with the wheel cranked in the sloppy shallow stuff. I would consider running a TSL in the front if it's a dedicated mud rig.

Overall they aren't as bad as some people think on road and are unbeatable offroad.
