xxx traction just posted these on pirate.
if anything, I firmly believe they prove that the 54" boggers shallow tread is not an optical illusion. Sure, people scream that they are not rated much shallower than the 44, however the shoulder depth is incredibly shallow at maybe 1" compared to any bogger 38.5+, which is 2.5-4". I had seen this in person but failed to gather pics. It is clearly shown here.

the width is much more appealing than those 49" balloons...but yeah, they look weak.

I would imagine a combination of weight, DOT approval, and less required power in the slop from less traction. Probably a good tire for non west coast rock crawling, hard bottom mud, sand, and snow. They will not be as potent as 44" boggers in hardcore mud. Their shear size will probably overpower a 44, but I would imagine they have less traction per inch of slop.
