    Review 1 of 10 , from Denton, TX

    Price Paid:  $0.00

    Year / Model Reviewed:
     69 Chevy 1/2 ton

    Strengths:
    decent cheap tire, but there''s better (ie Yoko Avid ST) for the same price.

    Weaknesses:
    really scary in the wet. I have a mild 468 big-block spinning 373 gears so traction will always be a problem, but even with 275''s in the back I can''t hardly take off slow enough to avoid wheelspin. Then the trans hits 2nd and they break loose.

    Summary:
    Would not use on my daily driver. Cheap, look good, ok acceleration & braking in the dry, good wear, soft sidewalls, ok grip but flexy through the corners. Scary in the wet. Good for your old fair-weather muscle car.

    Similar Products Used:
    Yoko, Michelin, Bridgestone

    Review 2 of 10 , from Chandler, AZ, USA

    Price Paid:  $60.00

    Year / Model Reviewed:
     1970 GMC, 235/60 and 275/60

    Strengths:
    Traction, price, looks on a classic, ride

    Weaknesses:
    Wear, wet weather traction - granted, that truck doesn't have much to begin with, but it goes from having traction all over in the dry to being able to light them up at 1/4 throttle in a PUDDLE!!!!

    Summary:
    I consider my truck to be less of a hardcore truck than a really big car with a huge open truck; I've lowered it 2.5" front / 4" rear and so it rides as such, and I never carry particularly heavy loads in it. So, why not get a tire designed for larger passenger cars? My dad always ran BFGoodrich Radial T/As in the past, then a 245/70 series tire all the way around when it was at stock height. Those tires were OK, but thanks to sitting for 10 years, dry-rotted. After going to the new tires and sizes (the treadpattern was updated noticeably, now running 235/60 for clearance in front, and nice wide 275/60 in back for traction!) I've been very much impressed with the handling and general traction ability of this 4000lb 31 year old pickup.

    Review 3 of 10 , from Oklahoma City, OK

    Price Paid:  $55.00

    Strengths:
    Super tire. Handles wet or dry equally well. Look sharp, they are just about the best tire on the road.

    Weaknesses:
    They are only rated to 112 MPH. Would like for them to be rated to 149MPH. BFG's high speed rated tires are usually too small for my rides.

    Summary:
    Every time I need a new set of tires, I look at all products available for the vehicle, to see if something better has come along. I always come back to BFG because they are simply the best.

    Similar Products Used:
    Used Michelins, Cooper, General, Uniroyal, Badyear. Michelins compare rather well to the BFG, but I wouldn't buy any of the other ones again. You couldn't give me a new set of Badyears.

    Review 5 of 10 , from Atlanta

    Price Paid:  $67.00

    Year / Model Reviewed:
     1990 Toyota Xtra Cab 2WD Trk

    Strengths:
    I use P205 70R14 's. I am on my 3rd set on my 216,000 mile Toyota V-6. These have good Dry traction and are good in Wet conditions for the first 15-20,000 miles. After that I think there is not enough tread left to displace water effectively and can cause white-knuckled hydro-planing in a heavy rain. They give a soft ride.

    Weaknesses:
    Not great in a Heavy rain after 15-20,000 miles. I don't like to drive in the rain anyway. If you want a soft ride, you gotta give up some miles. Make up your mind.

    Summary:
    I prefer the appearance and the ride of the BF Goodrich T/A Radials over the factory tires and Michelins. If the truck lasts long enough, I will get another set of the same.

    Similar Products Used:
    I bought some Michelins after using up one set of these and I Really did get more miles out of them but I did not like the hard ride.
