Hello out there. I have been given a price of $300 per tyre for 4 BFG atr's for my Pajero NS (365X65RX17's) from Tempe Tyres in Sydney.

Any one had any dealings with them as the price is about $20 less per tyre than anyone else ? They assure me they're the real thing from USA BFG ? Thanks Greg

BFG is owned by Michelin. There would be some shared tyre technology and probably made in the U.S of A.
I have Michelin LTX A/T2 and I am happy with them.

I was thinking about getting the BFG's at Broken Hill as I've got a bit left on the standard Yoko's but the cost was $90 more per tyre, so Tempe's the go I guess.

Baz, did you get yours at Tempe ?

I have used BF Goodrich for about 15 years or more, allways happy with them. However this time I went with Yokohama, similar tyre, reputable company and MUCH less expensive. I feel that like many things we are expected to pay a premium just for the "name"

Yokohamas are performing the same and so far I am very happy with them. I have to wait a few years to see if I get the same wear from them though.

Best regards

Good luck Cruiser. I have these Yoko Geolander slicks for the road on at the moment as they were fitted on the Pajero at birth and they are 70% done at 20,000 k's according to my mechanic. So I'm not impressed. All the best

My two last sets of BF Goodrich lasted for 100,000 each set. I also got 100,000 from the original Grandtreks.

So I hope to get similar wear from my Yokohamas. Only time will tell. I'll get back to you in another couple of years.

Greg, I just bought 4 265/75x16 BFG A/T last week at $300 each fitted. Cheaper by $30 per tyre than anywhere else and good happy place to deal with also.

Good bunch of blokes who know their business. I have bought two sets from them and would recommend them.

Cheers

Have just ordered five BFG A/Ts and they will throw in a $295 Black Max compresser for free. Think about it !! Check with your local BFG dealer. Sounds a great deal to me, and they say they are great tyres, we will see !!

365s ?

I've been quoted $305 from Baulkham Hills Tyre King. This was 285/75/16s BFG ATs. Getting them fitted this weekend. $305 is a drop from $329 back about 6-8 weeks ago. Going by the state of the AUD lately, I reckon this is about the bottom of the price. I reckon they may go up from here as the the old AUD is now about .83 USD.
