Status Update : BFG g-Force T/A KDW

Two things... first the official identification is just  BFG g-Force T/A KDW ... not KDW2. Apparently the "2" is something tirerack and many other places added to denote whether it was the new tread pattern or the old. Okay that said, ordered them today and they should be delivered in about 3 business days from Monday, 15-FEB-2010.

Ordered them from Discount Tire Direct and with the BFG mail-in rebate it will end up costing me $566 out of pocket. Not too shabby for a set of performance tires. I did settle on 225/R45-17 which should fit nicely without any rub. If it rubs a bit, I can roll the inside of the fenders a bit most likely to compensate for that small contact should it exist.

Next trip will be to get the tires mounted and a 4 wheel alignment. Unfortunately there are no road force balance shops in my town, but I know a place not too far away.
