Default Re: BFG Tires, Too good to be true?

Well, in 2wd, my tires sometimes spin on wet roads before they grip. It's nothing too serious, I just let off the gas a little bit and ride it out till the tires catch. They work much better than my other truck's street tires in the snow, and have worked well for me. On dry pavement, they grip well and allow me to take turns at speeds without any problems. In my case, the center of gravity and inertia of the truck would probably be the first cause of an accident on a turn, not the tires breaking loose.

I hope there's some information you're looking for there.

Cool Winks, thanks for the insight...do you have any weight in the back of your truck when your wheels spin, or is it empty? Because I get some tire spin in the rain when empty with my current tires, but with weight, I haven't had any problems.

Currently I've got 4 large cinder blocks in the back over the axle, and it still slips in some areas at times, but not as much. It's not constant, and I've never cared enough to try to figure out what causes it and what doesn't.
