Anyone know the ETA for
-235/40 18"
-255/35 18"
??

I couldn't find these sizes on the BFG site or Tire Rack.

Bump.

I already read the thread about the tread splicing and read the bulletin that BFG sent out via Tire Rack saying that's nothing to worry about. I'm not trying to stir up any debate about that.

Who here is running Rivals now? Feedback? I am debating between Hankook RS-3's and these as an upgrade from my BFG GForce TA's

I have BFGs mounted right now. Last season I ran Toyos R1rs for a little bit and then ran through a new set of Hankook Rs3s. I only ran one November event so far with the BFGs. They were used and had some chunking already so I'm not sure that I will buy them new. With the Rs3s I was able to get 220 autocross runs out of them by flipping them at 120. Have not tried the BFgs flppped yet.

Ive been running Rs3s for a while. Drove on Rivals twice and I couldn't get over how poorly they stacked up. Car was way too twitchy.

Threw Z2s on, and felt amazing grip, though different than the RS3. I would not recommend Rivals for anyone who has a Z2 or Rs3 available in their size. It's an intermediate between the two in nearly everyway, except overall performance.

Ive been told that due to the uneven construction of their compound, that you cannot flip these without significant performance loss. Note that this isn't first hand experience though
