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.

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....

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

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