    Short answer to your question,,, None

    By the way, I dont think there is any company that makes 245/70, if you are lucky you may find 245/75 of other companies. Check Maxxis, last year i purchased a set of 245/75 in MT of Maxxis

    I once found bfgoodrich tyres with a dealer brand new, I think the size was same as you specified. Immediately called a friend and installed in his vehicle. It happened twice actually.

    Okay boss, back in 2009 I found 64 BFGs, All Terrain in 265/75/16 with Faisal in Karach. Those were manufactured in 24/08. Bought 32 out of them, some for friends in Lahore and some for myself and have neen using them till last year.

    Those were very good tyres with load rating E and speed rating Q. Could not have them for rally but othwrwise those were very useful

    Those were for 13K each, I bought 2 sets of 6 tyres each. One for Defender and one for my stock Evo. Rest were purchased by friends in lahore.

    A couple of days after the purchase I again called Faisal for another set and came to know that all the rest of BFGs have been bought by Nadir Magsi.

    800 dirham was the price of each tyre at that time in Dubai. Each tyre weighed 22 Kgs, so about 150/kg for transportation to Pak, it was a deal to have them for 13K only.

    13k too good for a tyre. Very good find. I get them from Dubai and i agree, it goes much higher. But I guess bfgoodrich is AT is worth every penny. Works well on my 80 and 70 series but don't like to have them on my 100s though. Please let us (less fortunates) know when ever you find them in good quantity

    Sir, I was going for Cooper tyres last time when I was looking for tyres but again end up buying BFgoodrich as the size was not available in the market at that time. 33x12.5r15. Two things I don't like about bfgoodrich ; 1) Too hard but that's why they last longer though.
    2). The side walls are too delicate.


    We pray for your success on the upcoming rallies.

    Dear Lateralus,

    For myself I normally buy tyres from Dubai fresh ones. But as few friends were looking for bfgoodrich tyres and they would not care about manufacturing date which I guess were 2-3 years old but brand new. As the price was good, I bought for them. I think 50k for 4 tyres and gave them the existing old tyres. The shop is near khan auto in Peshawar Saddar but they don't have them right now.

    Never had problems with side wall of BFGs, its 3 ply and pretty rugged. Base of the tyre is 6 ply that's why it feels a little hard but BFGs are good tyres overall.

    Cooper Maxx are probably 3 ply on sidewall too but the tyre tread is a mix of ATs and MTs with very good reviews on reliability and performance
