My next tire after the R-S3s?

Saw them on TireRack when I was shopping a couple of weeks ago...

Just reviewed by Terry at Vorshlag:

I like the review, but in the same size I'm currently running with the R-S3s, (275/35-18 - 27 lbs.) they are listed at a whopping 32 lbs.!!! The 295s are listed at 29 lbs...wtf?

If these aren't in short supply, maybe some of us might run them this summer?
 
Thanks but I can't find a link for the rest of the review. Can you please post a link for the second page?

Specs/weights are a mistake, check the BFG site.

Thanks for the cross-check! That's a bit of a relief.

I think this should have you covered for all the posts:

I gave up after reading what seemed to be a VERY long history of his EXTENSIVE experience on the first page, on my phone. So did he like them or not ??? No knock on Vorshag. Just too tedious on a small business phone display.

LOL, he liked them. Even better than the RS-3's. It was a very thorough review. The only thing I didn't like was they compared them to the Falken RT-615's, which I dont believe are on anybody's short list. One of the biggest advantages seems to be the wear. By far they were the best of any tires they had there.
 
It was a good review, although a bit long winded with a lot of useless info thrown in. He liked them, said they grip well, wear was amazing, and lots of noise when pushed so easy to tell when they were being pushed past their limits. There should have been a larger cross section of tires to compare to but I suspect BFG wanted to pick and choose to make their tire look as good as possible. Good size selection though for the 18's .

I have never been a fan of Vorshlag but they posted a good test of the tires capability.
