They're only $265 and I'm told they last like a Toyo which is a great selling point for me. Always had good luck with the Toyos so I hope the BFGs compare well although I probably won't need a set for quite some time.

Tire Racks building is freakin' huge! Seen it many times from the outside but man when your inside it's just amazing, I can't believe they're ever out of stock on anything. Next year they're going to add 260,000+ sq ft, it will put them over 900,000 sq ft!
I know that Russ tried the BFG's. Russ had a hard time getting them to be as fast as he wanted on the track. He told me that they felt like they had a bunch of grip, but ultimately still slower than the Hoosier and he thought they were about the same lap times as the Toyo RA-1 takeoffs that he had run just before. He also commented that they heat cycled out fairly quickly. Joe used a set if I am not mistaken...ask him what he thought I thought about a set, but based on price, I would be more inclined to look at the Michelins, or better off staying with the Toyos or Victoracers.
