Tires



The BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires on the truck were fairly worn.  I was planning a trip to Iowa for the 2015 National Rallycross Championships, so I decided to purchase new tires.  Funds were low since I had not planned on this expense, so I did some research and found some inexpensive tires I thought could suffice for now.


I found that the specs for a GT Radial Adventuro AT3 appeared to be the same as the BF Goodrich tires.  The tread pattern was not quite as aggressive, but appeared to be a good compromise for me since most of my mileage is on the road.


My son and I ordered a set from discounttiredirect.com.  I also picked up a set of used OEM steel wheels to mount them on.  This would allow me to use the rest of the BF Goodrich tires later and give me extra spares to carry for the trip to Iowa.


When the tires arrived, they looked good to me.  I cleaned and painted the steel wheels and had the tires mounted for the trip.  They fit well and a few test drives showed they ran smooth.

The trip was just over 2000 miles round trip.  We pulled the Rallycross Miata and the tires performed beautifully.  I have also added another 1000 miles since I have been home without any issue.  I think these tires are a win.
