Sounds like it was just released for the Baja 500. Can't find any info on the internet though. Anyone know anything about it? Weight? Release date to the public?

That would be great! As of last year I was told BFG still had not planned on releasing a 32, or 33 in the KR tire. I know when they developed the 30, only to have BITD change the tire size months later, without mentioning it to BFG management really pissed them off.

If they do, I hope it measures 33 when mounted on a 6 1/2 in wide wheel. Call it a 32 to meet BITD stupid rule, but also meet Scores 33 inch tire roll out size, plus it could then be a great option to the Yokohama in the Limited buggy classes like 1600, 5/1600, 9 and for the 1000's of play/prerun buggy's out there.

The only thing that pisses me off is I'm sure they'll only be available in 15". Cause these would be a great tire for me, but I'm not about to lose money by going from 14's to 15's! Plus I don't really want the extra weight of a 15".

Going to a 15 is not going too much weight. The DWT Star Fighter in a 15" with beadlocks are super reasonable. I have seen them for 120 a wheel.

The tires worked great in Moab and in Baja from what I hear. Anxious to hear how Schueler, Miller and Lopez did with them in Baja. They look a little funny with how narrow they are but I think they are going to be great. I heard BFG developed them to also work for 16 car guys as well.

Here is an image of the tire in question from RJ's pre runner. 250 plus miles of pre running with no spare and zero issues. This tire makes the 15" wheel look small. Traction and durability are awesome! It feels very soft but View attachment 14223
showed virtually no wear in those pre run miles.
Is RJs prerunner stock width? With as tall as those look it seems like they would rub pretty bad on a stock car.

Do you mean the 33" labeled as a 32? Lol

Yep, I want to measure the roll out on a Tensor DS. I'm sure it's a solid 33, and Tensor was smart to to it. Score allows 33 & BITD alows 32. I've spoke with a few tire brands in the past and suggested they do the same thing. Per Cory when I spoke to him. He does not care what the tire truly measures out, if its factory marked as a 32, then he says it's a 32. It could measure 35, but Corys rule does not care. If I had a tire that was marked 33, but measured 32, you could not run it. Now Scores rules say 33 max, and it's measured by roll out, not tire markings.

I bet by the 1000, we see several limited buggy's running the new 32 BFG. Again would be great if it measured 33! Plus BFG offers pit support to those who run their tire, another plus in Baja.

Don't the R-Specs measure over 32"? Especially with the Sims' new 5" wide Methods.

Not sure what they measure with skinny wheels. On my wheels they measure just under 32 with 22psi. Approx 31-7/8. Those bfgs are monsters lol. They look almost taller than 33 with skinny wheels
