IMHO, the BFs are very good pullers if cut properly. The big three seem to be Firestone, Armstrong and BFs. You will find valid arguments from satisfied pullers for any of them.

Bear in mind that what we consider offbrands often are made by the majors and rebranded and have identical tread design. I have seen Safemarks do well. There will be many opinions offered and all valid.

In my opinion , and that's all it is, 40% may be just a bit more tread than you need to do well on most tracks but would be excellent for some tracks.

I like the BFG tires and have had good luck with them. One thing that makes them better is they have,if my memory is correct, three more bars than a Firestone and they are considerably lighter.

How do you cut a BFG and where do they shine the best
