BFG T/a's are good tires, they bite the pavement good. The thing with tires that get a good bite is they are made from real soft rubber, thats why the bite. Due to this they are very good tires, but they will not get good mile age like one with harder rubber will.

I suggest using at least an H speed rated tire.

I run the regular T/As on a 63 car that had H speed rated Jap tires before, and the T/As feel wishy washy in corners and wavy roads. I plan on selling them.
