hard to say, I run Dunalop RV Rovers on the street. and I don't keep track of my mileage to & from the trails. I think it also depends on vehicle weight, cause a buddy ran his all the time on his sammi and they didn't seem to wear all that bad.

I had 33in boggers on my toyota and they went from 100% tread with everyday pavement and weekend off roading approx 20,000km down to about 40% tread and i rotated every 3000km's and was also told this is normal wear?? Not worth driving these types of tires on pavement!! That is why i bought a set of used 33's off this board last year and ran them most of the time. Hope this helps some but I would say it all comes down to how, how much, and where you you mainly drive, and most of all the type of vehicl you are driving on them with.

well im lookin into 81 shortbox sisters truck and its a 77 chassis, 85 body chev with 38.5s.

and by your 20k fer 60% tread would mean what.....30k before your running on the wear bar. i probably only drive 10k per year (just under 8000 to and from work per year) so by my math and your assumption i should get about 2 years out em?

cuz to me that wouldnt be that bad.

course i wanna stuff 42s under or 44s and they are like 2800 for four (NSOR quote) ruffly.......for boggers of course.

keep it comin i need some info!

Well howz this for justification........in "Theory" a bigger tire will wear slower than a smaller tire. Soo ........ might as well get the 44's cause they will last longer:D :D

Leave the Boggers for mud racin...TSL's or SX's are the way to go.

I've got 5700 miles on my TSL's which includes alot of road & wheelin every weekend, they're down to about 50% tread:*******

Also beware if you have a locker in the rear, that really helps chew tires.

Just under 50 km's a day for two years and I still have more than 60% on my 35" TSL's, and I have detroits.
My 35" Boggers are about the same after less than one year.

I'd like to know how a SX wears

Nick,

did you forget I go on this site?!?

Trucks are the only vechile to my desire...

If you had a honda, small tires, I would hate :angry , and never hump :boring

But we know that will never happen, so no worries :D
