Geesh, speaking of Date-coding-Out, I recently had an old BFG 315 a/t tire separate while cruising down the interstate at 65mph. The right front let-go instantly and was Spooky.Nice Jeep! Good idea to age those out… I’m sad to say I have to age out my 35” Baja claws with about 50 percent tread left…. They’re irreplaceable- I’m hoping whatever I land in to replace them will be comparable.
Anyway, the tires were probably purchased in or around 2002 new ?
They sat in the hot sun all-day every day for 17-years while the rig was in mothballs.
When the "aged-out" tire cut loose, I was making a shake-down run to a buddies 30-miles south, and made it 24-miles, but was my 3rd run chasing gremlins.
Couldn't find Dick Cepek extreme countries, so purchased 285/75r-16 BFG m/t's. yep
I'm liking my new BFG's. _ _ _ at my age, I'll never wear them out.
Did some artsy painting for my front driveline a couple days back:

I got the grand daughter to help me with the install.
