I'd say the weight isn't really noticeable. The main thing is when taking sharp turns really hard where you're really loading up the tire or quicker lane changes at 90+mph you definitely feel that this is a tire that has some pretty big tread blocks and gaps between those blocks. The car is basically limited at 110mph with these tires (I think that actually is the speed limit rating on them anyhow) but anything over 110 on these tires starts to get mad sketchy. So high speeds are definitely sketchy. With that said the road noise isn't bad at all, and the tires perform incredibly off road and in snow. Handles the deep stuff with no issues, and also grips on snowpack like a true dedicated snow tire. Not bad on ice although I'd say the one area where they struggle is heavy braking on ice or snowpack. I just got the car about a month ago and I do plan to run the tires year round.Very nice. Love a little Cowboy Bar.
How noticeable is the weight on your BFGs? Honestly. Do you run them year round. And how do they do in snowpack vs ice and the deep stuff? Thanks.
I have Johnson Rod's but have yet to install them, can't wait to see how it looks. My BFG's are 275/55/20. They fit great, no rubbing issues at all in all settings and the tires alone are almost 2" in diameter larger so I'm sure that add's to making the car look higher. If you have the diesel I highly recommend the BFG's as they really didn't effect my fuel economy much. I still can get 22mpg on the highway if I'm careful which would bode well for your diesel. Love my supercharged but sometimes I wish I'd gotten the diesel since it's hard to use all the power the supercharged has, and lately I just wish I was getting close to 30mpg... so I could spend less $$ on gas on my roadtrips.Top gear, what size are your BF's & do you use the rods for lift? I just got a '16 diesel yesterday & want to make a couple changes. Thanks!
Haha, within a week of getting them I wished I'd gone bigger! Although another user finally convinced me when he said that with 275 55 20 you know you are 100% good. There's no angle or situation that will get you into trouble. The more I thought about the more I thought that's good enough for me, I'd rather go big, but still have peace of mind.Thanks! I just ordered the j rods. I had the rods & same sized BF's you had on my '10 full size I just traded in & loved the setup. Pretty wild you can fit 32's with no lift b/c on the full RR you needed rods & trimming of one fender we'll. super cool pics & the series!
Hey Eniam17, zero rubbing whatsoever. I can put the car in access height and even then I have yet to have any rubbing issues. In full off-road height there are definitely no issues, massive clearance. In fact I would have gone bigger were it not for the fact that I do massive amounts of highway driving and have already taken a decent performance hit going from the performance tires that come on the car to these. If I spent more time off roading I definitely would have gone larger. I should add that all of this clearance is on the stock car, I have yet to install my Johnson 1.5" lift. Will post some pics when I get around to it. Feel free to hit me up with any other questions!Topgear, great looking sport. Do you have rubbing issues with those tires at access mode or when off-roading at full articulation? I'm very familiar with the lr3/4 and previous sport as I have owned them and had them all lifted with the IID tool and 32"'tires and wheeled them quite a bit. But the new generation sport is new to me. Trying to figure out if I got one, what I could do to run it with a full time 2"'of lift and hopefully some 32's. Thanks a lot
