I know the large bulk of members here are more geared towards off road wheel and tires but for those who are more "on road" and performance oriented I pose this question:
Does anyone here have any experience with BFG G-Force KDW's on any year WK? I've come to the conclusion that the Fortenza's supplied with the WK2 are marginal at best and more geared towards highway use than anything that might be considered performance. Tires can have one of the largest effects on the dynamics of a vehicle and I feel the Fortenza's take the very capable WK2 chassis down a number of notches from where it could be with the right shoes.
I've researched all the tires currently available in the 265/50R20 size and although I could get away with a 275/45R20 the choice of tires doesn't really improve. Of all the tires available for a reasonable price (forget the $280/tire Michelin's or Yokohama's) the KDW's seem the be the best bang for the buck. FYI, I live in Florida and have not needed to drive in show or cold weather for 16 years so I'm looking for a performance summer tire as those have been proven to perform better in the dry and wet than most all season tires.
I'm interested to see what people who have used them in the larger aspect ratios have felt. Do they introduce uncomfortable levels of harshness? Do they produce uncomfortable noise? Anything from people who have experience with them would be great.
I've done some searches and found a couple threads but there isn't much review data around for the SUV application of these tires.
