What's everyone's thoughts on bolted tires? What's the best way to bolt a set?


I did read some old post, just wondering if it was worth doing?????

They dig but man they destroy trails..I'd like to see them banned from every ridding area.

I road at Livingston for years and the trails always looked about the same, then the chain-drive rails showed up with bolted swampers and you could see the conditions go to ****. Then a couple years later the econazies roll in with water samples full of silt and 909 was no more.

I built a set and asked around before I did em, most common setup I found and used was 3” carriage bolts 1/2” diameter , put a 5/8 flat washer on the bolt head and pushed bolt through from the inside . Then put 1/2” flat washer on the outside and 3 hex nuts and weld the top nut to the bolt . I made a drill just like a snowmobile track used for ice picks. It takes a core out so the bolt can go through

I just bought a set of used boggers, thought about bolting them but I've never done it before.

Bolted 44” boggers on that low pinon CHEVY 60? Ill get started on you a hp FORD axle... lol





If I do it I'll probably only do the rear tires :dunno:

Edit, the R&P would be the only concern, but shouldn't be any worse than a 43 stickie?????

I’ll take a pic and post it . I used 4140 solid . 75” round bar and heat treated it when I was done just by quenching it in oil but that step could probably be skipped , you might even be able to buy one already made idk. I just copied and made it bigger then a snowmobile track pick drill

So 2 of the boggers have less tread, if I'm going to bolt 2 of them do I bolt the ones with more tread? Or the ones with less? Thoughts????
