Is anybody running these yet? I am going to be getting some 18x9's and I like how ol' boys truck looks with the 325/60/18's but I don't know if I want to do that much trimming. It is already trimmed up pretty good. If any of you are running the new 305/65/18 BFG A/T's please post a pic.

I'm wondering the same thing. 325's are just a bit too fat for my liking. They are D rated also and I get a bit of role out of them which I don't like. Personally I like Toyo's tread better but it's been about 10+ years since I've ran BFG's, I thought they hydroplaned too much in rain but that was on a Toyota.

i plan on running them soon, probably order them this weekend if all goes to plan. the 305/65/18s will be alittle taller than the 325s but an inch narrower. so i would think the trimming might be the same as for both. i will let everyone know once i get them on. man reason for me going with these is they are e loads and are 3505 i beleive which is more than stock tires and most 325s are about 2932 which is alittle less than stock.

I don't believe that BFG has a 325/60/18. from the BFG website

your correct bfg doesnt make a 325/60/18 but i think they were refering to either toyos, nittos, and procomps. and some others that offer that size.

You are correct. The Toyo 325/60/18's I am running are 33.6x12.6. The height is perfect IMO, I just want something a little narrower and E rated. The BFG fits the bill perfectly, I'm just worried about the ride and wet traction compared to the Toyo AT.

Ive got them on my truck they are E rated tires. It takes some trimming I actually want to get 285 instead because of what I tow they are bigger than I exspected, they look great but I haven't towed my camper with them yet.

And what are you going to do with yours when you get the 285's? :idea:
How many miles on them?

i had a set of 305/65/18 on my 07 CCSB. i tried putting a cognito levelin kit on and the just wouldnt fit. put in torsion bar keys also, still wouldnt fit. probably could have gotten them to fit if the wheels didnt stick out as much. i was running diamo 8 karats 18x9. the truck loked killer but i couldnt turn the truck from lock to lock. i could turn maybe 1-1.5 turns on the wheel before i would start rubbing the rear metal of the front wheelwell opening. sad. the thing looked so damn good. had to back down to 295 BFG's on a 17" wheel.
