Sweet I've been waiting for these. Any word yet from Nitto on their 18's. How bad are these BFG's in the rain. I don't drive in the rain but I'm planning a couple of trips out of state if I get caught in the rain on the highway will I be ok on these. Or should I wait for the Nittos? I run ET Streets at the track so these would be a street only tire. My car puts about 410 to the wheels.

Thanks Rob

LOL!!!

Well I guess thats kinda what I said.... But I'm really looking for more info on the BFG's.

If these will work ok for the ocasional time I happen to get caught in the rain I'm down for them. But if I'm going to be hydroplaning all over the highway I'll wait on the Nittos.

Thanks Rob

Still loving the Mecham's also glad I bough them. Thanks!!

Good news. <img border="0" alt="[cheers]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_cheers.gif" />

If the new BFGs actually have the tread design on the smaller sized 'G-force' drag radial that I'd heard they would then they could/should be better in the wet than the old style design...also bridging the wet weather traction gap between the BFGs and the Nittos. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />
