These tires replaced some of the best tires I have ever owned: Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2. I was pleasantly surprised by the immediate amount of grip and lateral grip I experienced on these BFG C2. I actually experience a better response to steering and a better lateral grip when taking the off ramps than with the Michelin. I also noticed that, the fuel economy had dropped by about 1 mpg, compared to the above. This is certainly due to the fact that the BFG has a softer compound, more sticky than the Michelin and also due to the fact that the BFG C2 has a larger contact patch . All in all, this has been a great experience.
