I am looking to try out the R1-S this season and it appears that the specs on various vendors are not consistent with the BFG official website. The size I am looking at is 285/30/18.
BFG website: http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire...spec_table
Part #: 05904
Wheel width range: 9.5"-10.5"
TireRack (or various other vendors) website: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...Force+R1-S
Wheel width range: 10"-11"
So a couple of observations/comments:
1) According to BFG website, it appears that for the same size 285/30/18, the minimum wheel width is different between the R1-S and R1.
2) Seems like all the vendors are showing the incorrect specs for the R1-S if it is indeed true that the same size has different minimum wheel width requirement
3) Are the R1-S really wider than other brands for the same size (i.e. if I ran V710 in 285, I should run 275 for the R1-S)?
I have emailed BFG about it, but they didn't really answer my question on why TireRack is showing different specs than their website.
Just want to hear your opinions/experience.
