Well, I did it...ordered some G-force BFG R1s today from tirerack...I got the 225/50/16s to fit on Corey S's extra set of 16in wheels. I hope to take them to the weekend after next. Hope they get delivered in time..<p>Steve S.<br>97 2.8QM<br>
Actually, I'm particuliarly interested in how the 225/50 R16s do on the track in terms of rubbing. The stock tires seem sooooo close to the suspension components as it is, and considering I occasionally auto-x and track time the car, I'm a little concerned about rubbing with the larger tires. <p>Keep us informed!<p>Enzo

225/50-16 BFG R1s work well for me. No rubbing on stock sport suspension. Just remember to strap yourself in REAL well. The level of grip they provide is frightening.<p>98.5 Wett RamAir'ed Santorin Blue 2.8QMS<br>

We squeezed 235/40-17 Yokohama A032Rs on our track car with no rubbing at all. When the tires are warm the grip is ENORMOUS.

Steve S --<p>After reading about the g-Force in BFG ads and R&T's Tire Tech article, I'm dying to try them. Is there ANY way to make the 8000Es wear out prematurely so I can cost-justify a Plus One to a set of 17s?<p>-- David F.<br>1.8TqMS<br>E30 325is<p>P.S. Wouldn't it be great to have at Vegas in April? Are you planning to be there with your g-Forces?

Rev up the lawn mower...tilt it on its side...turn the A4 steering wheel full turn...then commence shaving off the tread on the SP8000Es. Then go to the wife or significant other, point to the tires and say..."oh crap...I need some tires!" Works every time. :-)<p>Yes...I will have them at Lost Wages<p>Yipeeee!!!<p>Steve S.<br>G-force dummy test pilot
