If BFG's are so great why is it that almost no one uses them in AS? They have been a legal tire to use in AS for years.

Great video, thanks.
As usual the GM guy looks like he is out for a Sunday drive with the lack of car handling drama, whereas the Ford guys look like they are in a greased pig wrestling contest LOL....

Idea. Simple change to address issues with brakes, tire wear, and driveline stress. Change maximum tire width from 275 to 255.

Our 8" wide wheels are designed to work with 255 tires not 275 tires....

According to Tire Rack, BFG is still making these tires and they have our sizes in stock.

It does seem odd though that they don't show up at other tire dealers.

Tires?

With talk again about changing our tire rules I would like to mention the following.

Don't equate the BFG G Force R1 S with the Hoosier A7. The BFG R1 S is not an autocross tire, but a sprint...

Why do this? The guys that use 16" wheels can't fit a 13.1" rotor.

A set of 16" tires is about $200 cheaper than a set of 17" tires.

Rule changes like this just make the top 10 AS cars in the...

I have recently used the 255 50 16, 275 45 16, and the 275 40 17. All Hoosier 7 series and I did not notice any difference in wear.

The 255 50 16's are $200 a set cheaper than the 275 40 17's....

Another twist on a new tire size would be to mandate 8" wide rims and 255 max tires for only FP cars. The RP cars would keep the same wheel tire package they have now. Heck I would give them 9.5"...

AS thrived for many years with 255 as the max size tire width. We could go back to that, plus the 255's are cheaper than the 275's.

Sure hope those SMG front Splitters are expensive, because if not, a lot of FP cars are going to be rear ended in the turns or under breaking.

I may be wrong on this, but I don't think getting rid...
