Review 2 of 18

Price Paid:  $348.00 from Discount Tire Direct

Year / Model Reviewed:
2001 Mustang Cobra

Strengths:
Maddening straight line grip. Decent wear for a DR. Amazing price for the product results.

Weaknesses:
Street use is a definite no go.

Summary:
If used for what they are meant for theyr'e second(arguably) only to the MT DR's. For the money spent though these tires do everything I could ask for. I DO NOT use them on the street though. My track has bad prep and I still launch at 3500-4500 and dead hook with 15 psi. Also, most people would never guess but they are stickiest just before the threads start to show. Amazing tire!

Review 3 of 18

Price Paid:  $0.00 from discounttiredirect.c

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 Cobra Mustang

Strengths:
Better sidewall strength for street driving as compared to an ET Street slick.

Weaknesses:
Poor traction and they wear out much too fast. The ET Streets wear much longer.

Summary:
These tires did not work for me. They were completely unable to hold the car at a launch of 2000 RPM or greater. Note that my car weights almost 4000 lbs with me in it and has 480 hp/tq at the rear wheels. My local track also doesn’t have the best track prep. The BFG’s for my car are 17” and have a low profile. Complete waste of money. Now I use MT ET Streets which I have found to be far superior in traction and wear. These tires also wear out fast. Two times at the track and they were worn down to the tread bars. If you have a heavy car with good RWHP and low profile tires stay away from the BFG.

Review 4 of 18

Price Paid:  $149.00 from Summit

Year / Model Reviewed:
 current 255/50-16

Strengths:
Traction, cornering -- don't need warm up.

Weaknesses:
Blister if they get too hot, as in a long hill (over 3 miles).

Summary:
I use the BFG drag radials as rear tires for my hill climb car. They are the only tire I have used that allows me full throttle coming off turns. They handle extremely well, somewhat better than Hoosier DOT Road Racing Radials, and don't need to be hot to work. Hill climbs are not normally long enough to get tires got. Braking into a turn is also excellent.
