Bogger mounting question.

my wife just bought me a set of 37x13x 15 boggers for my birthday. She got me 5 of 'em so I have a spare. My question is are they a true directional tire? I know the tread go's "one" way but can use it the other way as a spare if needed?


Thank's

I know a guy that runs his boggers backwards on the road, and forwards wheelin, because they "wear slower".

I imagine it would work, since it's bias, but I wouldn't recommend running it backwards for long periods myself.

Ive seen one or two running their boggers backwards while offroading to. They say the clean from mud better. I dont know about that but they dont seem to take more damage.

yeah I would have to agree newbie type question.
you can use the spare backwards, it won't hook up worth a damm (except when you back up) but it still holds air and supports the vehicle, and for short duration won't have any serious side effects. if you are on a long run and have to use it I would suggest breaking it down and flipping it to run normal.

YES, it is an issue. I wanted to know if I could run it backward's if I have to. Doesn't seem like a newbie question to me. I'm not asking what lift I need to run them, but if I can run one backward's if needed. Thanks.

Yes you can run them backwards, just don't run them inside out.



And if people point out that it's a newbie question, and you are a newbie, you can't have an opinion. You're a newbie. You are retarded until proven otherwise. Sorry.

Tim.

I don't think I have gotten around to the "prove otherwise" part quite yet.
