Not one tire failed.

There was an equipment failure with one of the buggies, as a driver managed to run out of talent and ruin some suspension, but the tires all held up. We later came to find out that some of the tires in the group weren't even brand new. They'd actually seen a few thousand miles on the buggies in actual racing scenarios. You couldn't tell by looking at the tread, as all the tires looked ready to go... and they were.

After a night spent out at Mike's Sky Ranch (an off-road mecca in the middle of nowhere, Mexico), we trekked back toward the beaches of Ensenada. The dust finally began to settle, the buggies were sent back into the hills, and all of us in attendance began to watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. Beers were served, tales were being told, and hot showers were a not-too-distant dream. The one thing on everybody's mind, however, was the truly stellar performance of BFGoodrich's latest tire. They didn't need us to prove that the tire was any good though, as a pair of motorsports standouts were also part of our group.

One of them, Bryce Menzies, had already sampled the tire on his fire-breathing Trophy Truck. He did so last year, when he used the KO2 to win the Baja 500.
