2012 Ford Explorer XLT EcoBoost: BFG Tire Hauler

October 21, 2011

We had to move our 5 new massive BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires out of the office, so we loaded them up in our 2012 Ford Explorer XLT EcoBoost and hauled them down to the Edmunds Static Measurement/Photography studio. Here they will wait until the Jeep's new wheels arrive.

Maybe we should mount them on our Explorer instead. The 18s on our Explorer look small due to the tall vehicle profile (pic on the jump.)

BTW, those suckers are heavy!
