BITD V2R TrophyLite Pre-Race Tire Recommendations

BITD_VegasToRenoThe Best in the Desert (BITD) Vegas to Reno event is one of the toughest races of the 2017 desert race calendar from the standpoint of tire wear. Rapid treadwear is not uncommon at this event, regardless of racing class or tires used.

For those TrophyLite class racers electing to compete with our tires, BFGoodrich Tires recommends using the 33×12.50R15 size in preference to the 33×10.50R15 size for this event. The 33×12.50R15 tires will provide better treadwear than the 33×10.50R15, due to the increased amount of tread rubber available on the wider tires.

BFGoodrich Tires also suggests that a winning pit strategy often includes a plan to check rear tires for treadwear at around the halfway point of the race, and a plan to be able to change the rear tires depending on the wear condition observed.

As a reminder, here are the part numbers for the 33×12.50R15 BFGoodrich off-road tires:

Size Tire Line Part Number (MSPN)
33×12.50R15 108R All-Terrain T/A KO2 37881
33×12.50R15 108Q Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 37047

Pre-race tire orders may be placed by calling 1.800.RACE.BFG, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM ET

Thanks for racing with BFGoodrich Tires, and best of luck to all the TrophyLite community for Vegas to Reno!
