BFG BAJA t/a\'s

Looking for some info on the BFG baja t/a's. I know there is BFG baja project t/a's and normal BAJA t/a's but whats the difference? Is there and other versions? What sizes? Looking to get the some 35x16 bajas for my truck 80% daily driven. I will probably buy some used and I am over the flat spots.

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

You can get the tires that were made for lil mac and they are 315/75/16 I believe. They are the projects. S&S runs them on there truck now...ex lil mac. The Bajas come in 33/10.5/15 and 35/12.5/15 and are more like the mud terrain. The projects have a smoother tread and are what is found on most TTs in a 37/17, they are also made in a 35/12.50/15 I think. If you search a long while back you can find info on these tires....a lot of info. If you have a fullsize throw on some glass and run the 37/17s ...they are nice. I can get you a set from a friend for pretty cheap that he was going to run on his superduty before he came into some money problems.

You can get the baja ta's with the project pattern in a 16". They are the street version and will set you back about $320 a tire. Lil Mac runs 35x15 kevlar projects, specially made for it at the time. Now they are more common since class ones are running them.

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

has anyone else had problems with the 315x16's??? my friend and i both run them on our F150's and they ride like trash...do you guys think stepping up to 37's would rob a whole lot more power and would the ride improve a bit?? i posted it on another thread, but my tires vibrate like crazy right when i hit about 45. it drives me nuts!!! they look cool and they are tough as hell but i dont know if im gonna keep running em....

No matter what size you run they will ride like crap. They are a serious tire. They get flat spots, they get really loud once they break in. Go back to an all terrain you will be so much happier.

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

i ran 35' baja t/a's on my 77' 1/2 ton cheby. and they tear stuff up. my steering linkage wore alot faster and ball joints. they are a very heavy duty tire. the flat spots i can deal with. but the tire not being balanced became scary at times. definetly can hit all that stuff people dodge in the road though.

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

I currently run 35x12.5R15 Baja's on my Toyota and they work great in the dirt....they are a little heavier but you can hit rocks that a MT cant take....for instance last weekend I was in Ocotillo and I had MT's on the back....I hit a rock with the front right and then the back right and it took out the MT on the back right, the Baja was good to go!

Yes they suck on the street in the morning for a bit with the flat spots but you get used to it lol...

I loved them on/off road. The flat spotting is the problem, and the only thing I had to do on my ranger is run the pressure down to 14-15psi. Otherwise they were to rock hard, and wet pavement with that kind of pressure was scary.

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

I run the 37x17" Baja TA's on my f150. I love the whine that they produce, its not to loud like some 44" supper swampers or anything of that nature. They are awesome in dirt, and float really well in sand if you go to glamis at all, you dont really have to air down much if any. And the flat spots dont bother you to much if your used to them. I bought mine grooved also. Just a pain to find a place that will actually balance them right, I had to have them done twice in a day until they finally got them done right.

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

How much more (estimate) does a BFG baja t/a tire weigh than a bfg mud terrain? 35x16 (315r16)

Re: BFG BAJA t/a\'s

I need to get some new 35 x 12.5 on 15 BFG projects KR for my Prerunner the fronts are getting pretty worked. Any advice about who to talk would be helpful, since the truck came with the KR's on it when I bought it. Thanks
