    These are bad boys!!! [​IMG]

    These are for the 17" rims and Weld Racing makes the Super Singles in a 17 x 10.

    I would love to have these tires and wheels to mount on my K30!! [​IMG]

    They're wicked expensive, as are the wheels you need to be able to mount them. [​IMG]

    I want them, does that count? Let's see, $260 per at 5, plus another $260 per wheel at 5; that's $2600 for a set. Of course the numbers have been rounded, but once you get past the four figured number, it's all good.

    I think Micky Thompson makes an affordable 17 inch rim in their Classic II. One of the magazines featured the tires recently, they seem to have a more aggressive sidewall, and a little more open tread design. But a 37 inch Swamper SSR is about $40 cheaper.

    They need to be more reasonable on price so that they would sell more. Sell more, more profit. I'd buy the 37's, but on 15's or 16's.

    Agreed! If they were $180 each and came in a size for a 15 inch rim, I'd already have a set! [​IMG] Seems to me that BFG is missing a pretty good market opportunity.

    BFG has had 37s out for some time now, but they've been $$$. I think they were for off road racing (sponsored teams, etc), but the rules said they had to be regular tires anyone can buy (ie the homalgomation thing, like why you could buy a street wing car from Dodge). So they set the price high enough they wouldn't sell. Goodyear also has some pretty pricy 37 (for 16.5s), that come on Hummers. I think over $300/per.

    I haven't seen the 37-inch BFG's for a 15-inch wheel though. The one's I've seen require a 17-inch wheel, which also costs big bucks! The Goodyear MTR's are available in a 37 for a 15, but they're something like $400 per tire. Yikes! They're an awesome tire, but not THAT awesome! [​IMG]
