BFG 4×4 tyres are number one when it comes to all 4×4 tyre classes of the off-road requirement. hence, the “Off-Road” tyre, are renowned for their durability, strength and mileage.

Therefore, a $50 million investment in the BFG brand will bring many new jobs and perhaps an upgrade to the present line of car tyres and light truck tyres.
