Check out the reviews on http://www.tirerack.com.
I did a lot of research and have the BFG g-Force on My Marauder and they are fine-- but if you have a lot of low end torque then these tires are the best for wet traction that I have driven on. Just the last couple of days of wet roads, I've left many a stang, MB, Jag, etc. way, way behind because of the wonderful wet traction. Need to give the tires a good couple of hundred miles break in before they really stick on the wet roads. They are not cheap, about $175 each, but this is one case you get what you pay for.

I have only had my tires for a month and will be completing a survey here shortly.
