Sounds like a really stupid and pretentious thing to do if your Jeep never leaves pavement (this in itself should be a crime TBH).

I don't know, the first thing most people do is get 35's and a 3" lift with no intentions of driving it on anything rougher than a speed bump

The Bogger is a mud bog tire. That’s the only place that it excels. Road manners are horrible. For the poster who suggested Thornbirds, they are crappy in pretty much any terrain. They earned the name Thornturd for a reason. Any of the modern radial MTs would be a better choice than almost any Super Swamper, and I’ve owned 6 different sets: 33 Boggers, 35 Boggers, 33 TSL radials, 36 TSL radials 35 SSRs, and 33 Thornbirds. That was the late 1990s, the tires are pretty much the same today...

I'm on a couple of facebook forums where as soon as someone posts a new Jeep every starts saying you need 37's. A few weeks later they are asking what they can do to improve gas mileage lol

That would be me. I guess I should have been more clear. Interco makes the Thornbird for people, like the OP, who rarely venture off pavement but want an aggressively styled tire. The fiberglass and polyester construction won't flat spot nearly as bad as the (stronger) nylon construction of Boggers and TSL's. Here is the info straight off Interco's site:

"The Interco TSL Thornbird is one of the most aggressively designed off-road style tires for light trucks, jeeps and SUVs on the planet, and arguably the best looking one too. The Thornbird’s gnarly 3 stage sidewall lugs (TSL) do not touch highway surfaces but as soon as the tire gets into mud or snow they provide decisive traction in forward or reverse. The intimidating tread design utilizes fiberglass belts under the tread that offers a wide highway contact area, together with polyester body plies contribute to a really smooth comfortable ride you wouldn’t expect from such an aggressive tire.

The combination of its unique side-wall lugs and tread design make the Thornbird extremely versatile and comes close to making it two tires in one. Interco Thornbird’s are offered in a variety of sizes combinations that come with either a 6 or 8 play rating (dependent on size combination). Thornbirds were not designed to replace the Bogger or the Super Swamper, but rather to offer the consumer a tire that performs well off and on road. Thornbirds are without a doubt a member of Interco Tire Corporation’s legendary tire line-up."

That’s marketing. They SUCK! Any modern radial AT or standard mud tire from Nitto, BFG, etc. will be better.

LOL! We both know that lots of Jeep decisions are based off looks, not performance. Any modern radial will definitely be quieter, last longer and have better traction off road. But I can't think of one that has that gnarly look the OP likes. Judge not...

I ran S.S.'s on my '50 CJ3a. They had and still have there place. It is just not on my JLR. I liked the look and even like the NDT military tires.
