Cool Getting ready for snowplowing ....will Boggers do ?

I have a Ford crewcab F350 with a 12V cummins in it, and a big fisher plowblad in my avitar...


Should I try to plow with the 18" wide Mickey Thomson Baha 's or my 11" Boggers ??

Otherwise I'll need something else in the 39" range ?like maybe a 40" x 13 x 17 MTR ???


Any suggestions from the guys who push snow for a living on what will work with my rig


I know it's early for this kind of thinking, but I dont want to sell tires that might have worked awsome and currently I have both the Mickeys and the Boggers forsale

i dont know if either will work well, but usually thinner is better for pushing snow.
try the narrow swampers.

Go skinny for snow. They help to dig down to something more solid. The only reason why you might want to go wide is if you were wanting to x-country across some deep stuff.



I have BFG KM's equivalent to a 32x10, and they work great on snow covered roads. My friend has 33x15.50 swampers and theyre just scary in the same conditions.

I have found that all terrain type tread works best for snow plowing. A small pattern mud tread works good too! I would try to find some 35" x 12.5" max for winter tires.
Large tires work good for busting through deep snow in the winter, but when plowing the blades what is busting through the snow and the tires need the traction on slippery pavement.
hope that helped!

I drove my old truck on 44" boggers daily last winter and it was miserable. No traction on ice whatsoever.
