BFG tires
can someone out there help in have 275x60x15 BFG tires and would like to put on 345x55x15 are they as good on the street as my old tires as this car is driven daily and in the wet

The Comp T/A and radial T/A are the best street tire for the money in my opinion.

Wider tires tend to hydroplane more easily, kinda like big fat water skis.

thanks guys for you help but maybe i should say with the tires i have but i would still like the bigger tires. Is anyone using the 345x55x15 as to the 275x60x15.Thanks all

BFG T/A radials are the most overrated tires in existence IMO. I have owned 3 sets, and have had quality problems with all three. IMO they went downhill when they merged with Uniroyal. It amazes me that rodders still choose this tire over what is out there.

I am considering Nitto tires for my 34 Coupe. My Wifes Tahoe is on it's second set of Michelin tires, after getting rid of the T/A's. The first set of Michelins I put on the Wifes Tahoe just came off last weekend and there was still enough tread that I put them on my truck that was in need of tires. I will never own another set of T/A's.

I don't think so, but you might look at Toyo, and Yokohama also.

I am with Jim on those fat tires. They will be hydro planing fools. Can you get Bridgstone tires down under? Their Pretenza is a high rated tire when compared with comparable tires on tire or discount
