Super Swamper TSL Boggers... anything better in the mud/muskeg, and streetable-ish?

Moving up to 33" tires here soon and need to know what to get. my wheeling is dirt, trees/roots, a little sand, but mostly get stuck in muskeg and muskeg like mud. It's everywhere around here. Hardly ever see any rocks.

I'd go right to agro tires, but still want to drive to the trails, even if it is loud and wonders a bit. I put on well less than 1000 miles a year.
If the tire works ok in the snow that would be cool too, but not necessary, I'll run chains if needed, lol. Would probably trailer it to the trails in the winter.

So is the mean bias ply super swamper TSL bogger about the best I could get for what I am looking for?

Gateway Buckshot mudder. Skinny with old school tread pattern. 7/8" of tread depth and clean out great. Price is much cheaper than boggers. Traction is unbelievable with these, just read about them online.

Wow, those do have some great reviews, reminds me of the old school military tires.

My only concern is going skinny, muskeg seldom has a bottom that you can make it to, was hoping to get a little floatation with the boggers too.


Edit, hmm seems like I might be able to get a wire tire too, but damn they are hard to find.

Those Gateway tires would be great in mud, but not on street.

I thought he wanted a streetable MT.

Streetable ish.

Agro tires aren't Streetable at all, I wouldn't be able to keep it on the road at highway speeds.

But those gateway tires seem like they are just crazy loud and have standard bias ply issues. And that's fine.

My jeep is a third vehicle, so it's only street it sees is from my house to the trail and back. I'm just trying to avoid towing it everywhere at this point.

OK. I see. Those Gateway tires would be great then, if you like narrow MT.

Otherwise, how about Trxus MT? It's reasonably good on highway for an aggressive AT.

Nitto Mud Grapplers are another option.

Though I don't think they do as well in the mud as Boggers.

They do better on the road, but with your limited road use, not sure if it's a worthwhile trade off for you.

I have no issues running boggers on the road. Just wondering if there is anything better than boggers for mud and muskeg, without going to an agro tire?
Or is the bogger really the top limit before agro?

Boggers are your best choice in my opinion.

I don't know of any streetable tire that works as well as boggers in the mud.

Who said you cant street Boggers? If you want em, get em! A little road noise wont hurt anyone and you cant beat them for strictly a mud tire.

Exactly what I wanted to know.

Now the only bad thing is a set of 35*14.5*15 came up for sale for a sick deal.

But 35 and stock axles and gears, with lockers front and rear .... I dunno.
