You know that tthose are DRAG tires. read a review
[img]Pros: Excellent straight line performance.
Cons: These radials aren't for those expecting normal wear out of a tire.

These tires hook extremely well on the street or track. You will definately enjoy the improved traction and the overall drivability of these tires. Definately recommended for the weekend racers or someone looking to get maximum launch without using a slick.

These drag radials do wear extremely fast though. They lasted around 4000 miles for me, and when they wear DON'T DRIVE ON WET PAVEMENT! You have minimal control at best!

Just for warning, I read up on the 255/5017 BFG'* T/A and there was a fair amount of quality issues from BFG and not the greatest traction or tread life.

Oh these were the only BFG tires I found that were high perf ALL SEASON. If you want just summer tires, it'* a whole nother ball game. I didn't read up on those.
