The powersavers are awesome for low speed pulling, probably under 15mph, but they are heavier.

I don't now where you got your information H-66 but it's wrong. The 6Ply BFG tires should weigh about 185LBS a piece where the 151 Firestones will weigh anywhere from 195 to 235 LBS, usually closer to 220 on the average. The old and very hard to find Firestone Field and Road tires will weigh 175 LBS but they are like hens teeth to find. I had a pair and let em' go.

Jim,
I am not trying to be an a..hole. I may be wrong on the weight issue of radial or bias. It's still hard to beat a BFG powersaver radial for low speed pulling. Thanks for the input. Jim Henke

I am thinking BFG radial 8 ply versus firestone Super all traction radial. Aren't the 151's bias ply tires?
