As I mentioned in an earlier post, we attended the launch event for the new BFGoodrich g-Force Rival. I was able to share some initial impressions in that post, with further testing to follow. Our official report on the results of our day at the track is now online.
With skidpad results above 1g of lateral grip, the data backs up my initial impression of the Rival's impressive grip levels. Its traction level was slightly behind that of a pure race tire, but well ahead of even an ultra high performance street tire.
Our photo and video team were on hand to document all the fun we had putting the tires through their paces. The photo at the left and our video provide some samples of our time at NOLA Motorsports Park.
The g-Force Rival is a true example of the Extreme Performance Summer category: street friendly, track capable and emphasizing ultimate dry grip.
Stay tuned for our in-house test results once the weather warms up!
