Oh. LOL! My bad! They are summer tires though, compared to the rest being all seasons. Tread wear is not really a relevant number anyways, I know of some 180 tread wear tires that can last almost 20k miles, and I know of some 600 tread wear tires that barely last 20k miles.

what brand tires?

Yeah exactly. That's why I usually tell people (and even do the same myself) to take what a tires spec is then relate that to a reputable review source to either confirm or deny my pros/cons.

Those BFG's do look nasty though! I remember wanting a set when they first came out till I installed a few...then took em right back off due to valid ride complaints lol!

^ I think you mean the BFG KDW's... not the G-Force's

My KDW's are still great in the rain and hot days here. Although I am in need of new tires soon with 30K on them. The one thing I enjoy about the KDW's are the stiff sidewalls.

I def was Paul good catch. G-Force isn't bad just don't last long at all and also a discontinued tire. I just presumed it was the KDW below the pictured Kumho. Leave it to Tire Rack to still have some though...tire whores lol! The KDW certainly comes with a nice sidewall though and looks awesome to say the least. As long as your front end is tight and alignment is spot on you shouldn't have problems with the tread design. But 30k isn't too bad off them 👍

How have you tested them ? Canyon runs, track time, auto-x, drags, etc....
