Hey everyone...

Going to replace my front tires, BFG Radial T/A's. I like them for when I had the white lettering out, but don't anymore.

I'm not looking for a performance or handling tire, just a decent radial to match the Nitto drag radials on the back.

Suggestions? Just wondering if there is a better tire out there for the roughly $150 each that these go for.

Why not simply call your favorite tire dealer?
Be it Firestone, Good Year or Fleet farm.
I would imagine you can find a pair of tires for $150.oo

For a "decent" radial I've had good luck with Radial T/As, Coopers, Cooper's less-expensive Starfire brand, Firestone Indy 500s, Yokohamas, even Falkens; kinda depends on what I use the vehicle for and specific sizes I want.
I'm kinda weird about tread patterns & sidewalls matching front & rear, so in that case I'd look for a similar-looking "good" tire for the front. Maybe wander around on the Tire Rack & Discount Tire sites.

BFG's white letters turn brown. I like Mickey Thompsons tires. Cooper is fine too.

Why not just run the regular Nitto radial on the front as long as they make the size you like?

I've run both their drag radials and standard radials and really like them. I have sets on two different cars and never a problem.

I have M&H drag radials on the back of my Duster and put Firestone FR710 on the front two years ago. They have been a good tire.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll take a look at these before I make a decision.
