BFGs Installed... Om Nom Nom...



Finally got my spare set of OEM wheels powder coated and the BFGs mounted and installed.

I only drove it to work from the tire shop but HOLY COW it is a different beast on non-run flat tires. It feels like a very heavy sports car instead of a powerful log truck.

If all goes according to plan I will be taking it to a track day next Friday and eating these up on the road course.

Nice! I absolutely love these tires. I've had them on my 07 since March and on my second set on my mustang. These tires are amazing in the rain, I haven't had a single issue with them. Let us know how they handle the track, I'm interested to hear your feedback! FYI, they didn't hook up on the drag strip with my mustang, don't know with AWD and you doing a road course. Keep us posted!
