would be cool if its a tougher casing.. i have a bunch of blown out bfg's in my backyard that have sidewalls splits around 4-7" long. most of them just from driving down the road.
Im hard pressed to believe its just from driving around? Id like to know release date, what size tire, what they were on? How much sunburn they have? I have been driving on bfgs for over a decade with only one side wall puncture.. I find it hard to believe you have a bunch of blown up bfg tires that weren't caused by human error.. Blaaaahhhhhhhh
I have seen major damage and blowouts on many different tires, from el cheapo to michelins, and it's hard to say from a pic if it's mismanagement. How are the duratracs holding up?
Please take a step back, megaphoneman. You seem to be getting yourself worked up and are guessing at what he's doing or has done. And I am not sure of your background in tires so I won't guess at that, but to say staying within specs will ELIMINATE these issues is just false. It will help, but within any manufacturing process there are potential flaws, which can lead to flaws in products used exactly to specs. Every tire manufacturer has done recalls due to this fact, the most recent of which I have dealt with was a huge one by michelin. They ate a ton of tires and lost a lot of customers, but in the end made it right for everybody affected.So let's get back on course so we don't need to lock the thread: If you get a chance to see one in person snag a pic and post it. If anybody runs them, please post your unbiased experience and let us know!
Wow those look cool, I hope they make a few for 15" rims still...
That tread design has worked for so long I'm kind of glad they didn't change it much. A little more side lug is all they ever really wanted for. They are ATs after all. They are suposed to be ho-hum. Of course I'm still wishing they made old school mud tires with typical tread designs like old-time BFGs, buckshots, etc... I thought those old tread designs with regular center lugs had better lateral hold than all they funky new stuff.
At 58# each and a/t tread it feels like a new truck, but ive only driven em maybe 50 miles on the road so far but i plan on fully testing em in the snow and mud that this next storm should bring!
