Good Deal !!?

i've been looking for new tires before the branson trip
found a set of Cragar SS rims with tires (BFG radial A/T)

http://stlouis.craigslist.org/pts/1161373978.html

and spare



the Cragars are the exact same i was running on my old truck...but 2 of mine were trashed.

so...just wondering, Are the BFG radials any good?

what are the pros and cons?

i know they are a little smaller than what i've been running but its too good to pass up.

i'm running 225/70/14 size tires now.....the BFGs are 215/60/14

the bfg radials aren't a bad street tire. make sure your truck is aligned properly and keep them inflated to spec, you should be ok. i personally dont care for bfg... but being in the tire business i've seen ppl get great mileage out of those tires.

hope this helps.

I think thats a good deal on 5 tires and rims. That's the price of just 4 radial tires right there. From the tiny pics they look clean. x2 on the statement above

BFG Burn out T/A's are good all around time they suck in snow but you dont get tons where your at anyways. there a VERY VERY cheap priced tire thus nicknamed Burn out T/A because you usually burn them off before doing the normal wearing them off lol...

They are ok in the rain not 100% best but i had them on a 4.0L reg cab prob didnt help much nothing was really good on it lol...
