For the rears I try to buy them used from the 1600 teams. Fronts are brand new from any of the off road parts retailers. Simpletire.com is a great place to find reasonably priced front tires if you run the E rated trailer tires.

Yeah. Fronts I’m good on. Don’t really kill those, unless a rock jumps out and attacks them. Didn’t know if anyone maybe had a hook up on the rears.

I’ve run the BFGOODRICH KR2 on many of my vehicles and after shaving them down they were perfect for a 9 car! The SNORE series and BFGOODRICH has set up a great contingency program, check it out on the snoreracing.net website.

Just checked the contingency page on SNORE’s web page. BFG just says details to come soon.. I’m getting ready to buy some tire for the season it would be awesome if BFG was putting some type of contingency for the limited classes. I all ready sport BFG’s on all my daily rides now. Maybe like Yokohama use to do????

Got in contact with Jackson Motorsports about the BFG KR2. 32x9.5r15 KR2 Their prices for racers were $232.20 per tire plus $10 per tire shipped. And far as contingency for SNORE they have nothing in place for racers.

According to statistics the KR2 is about 39 pounds per tire and the KM3 is around 41.5 per tire. I’m not sure about compound.

I found that on the bfg website. I’m wondering if you could knock off a couple of pounds by having the tread buffed out.

Mickey Thompson was the best for contingency. They sent us a debit card with money on it. Then they would just load more money on it as we kept winning. You could spend it on whatever you wanted too. By far the best I’ve had.
