May 22, 2014

One of the best tires that I have owned. They have lasted over 50,000 miles and still have tread remaining. I have driven in all conditions from coast to coast and everywhere in between. They handle well in rain, snow, and clear weather. They have been good on the highway, in the city, and towing a light trailer. I am not a brand loyalist to any maker but I will buy this tire again when these finally wear out.

I put these on my 1990 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE 2 years ago and they have been tremendous. Dry and wet weather grip for this type of mid engine car is extremely good. They give me a feeling of confidence while hard cornering that is stronger than any previous tire I've had on this car. That includes Pirelli , Toyo and Goodyear. I would purchase these again in a heart beat.

First of all these tires claim to be an all season but they are awful in the snow and mediocre in the rain at best. On dry pavement they are fair with traction but they are extremely noisy and harsh over bumps. I got these to replace my stock yokohama advans that were toast and they were the first set I came across a deal on so I bought them. 5000 miles later they are pretty much done and handling and road noise is even worse. I got an alignment when they were installed and everything was within spec (unlike many reviews on here who never get an alignment and wonder why their tires only last 5k miles). I've rotated them twice to try to minimize the wear but it didn't help. Save your money and buy a different set of tires as you will most likely be disappointed with these tires.

I live about 30 miles inland from St. Augustine, Florida so I spend almost every weekend in the summer in sand on the beach or in the coquina flats launching a boat and never have a found issue. I rotated my tires every oil change for the past 5 years and kept a good alignment on the front end. I've been in every hunting club and cypress swamp in our county and been up north joy riding in the snow of the mountains and never have I had an issue with my tires. BFG all terrains are all I have known and they are all I will continue to buy this is by far the best tire for any terrain including the smooth ride they offer on the highway. At 92,000 miles I still have 1/4 tread left on my tires and though they are worn they still pull just as good as the day I bought them. You definitely can't go wrong with these tires and they are more than worth the price!

I guess rugged terrain was not designed for the extreme rated trails.
But this tire proved to be very comfortable on the highway, extremely responsive on the wet. Very good on snow; tough enough to take me to my favorite fishing spots.
Highly recommend

98 BMW 528i w/factory sport package - 16" wheels, tire: 225/55/16
Previously had the earlier version of this BFG tire on my smaller 15" wheels and they proved all-round very good. The "Comp 2's" are being removed after 2,500 miles. These tires stick like glue and have a very stiff sidewall - from a performance standpoint they're excellent - however, there ride quality is quite harsh - considerably more so that will work for daily driving and frequent roadtrips. Noise is prevalant but as the rires a basically new it's not an issue...but I bet as they wear they'd get LOUD. Conclusion: good value for a true performance tire but think hard on this tire if your car has a sport/firm suspension as you'll definitely feel every pebble you come across, just too connected to the pavment for my liking.

Like others have mentioned, these puppies get LOUD with age. People that ride in my car start laughing at how loud the tires are. My dad says to me "drop me off at the next light and I'll walk the rest of the way home".

They performed great, but man, the NOISE!!! Time for replacements.

I have purchased the Comp 2's to put on my SL because I have a set on an 2004 E500 and they are the best handling tire i have had on the car to date.The handling is superb in wet and dry and the noise level is very low and the comfort level is very high. It almost feels like you are riding on a rubber pad. Takes bumps and road imperfections and absorbs them very nicely. They replaced Michelin Pilot A/S which were noisy and cumbersome,and just not an aesthetic looking tire for the car,still a great tire, but doesn't have the gripping power desired. I have taken off ramp turns at almost double the speed limit without any slipping or squealing from any corner. It's just a real good tire for the money,cant beat that combo. Very pleased.

Excellent dry; good wet, but hydroplaning could be improved; Note these tires do have M+S rating; got them because they can be driven in subfreezing MI late fall/early spring (use winter tires but can't keep them on car from Oct to April) - acceptable in dry/wet/slush & 3+ inches of snow when tread depth is over half; slippery in light snow/ice; noisy at highway speeds; actually not as wide as listed in specs: measured 7.5 inch tread width (8.3 inches listed)

Best All-Terrain Tire Choices for 275/55R20 Size

Monday, June 30, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Not too long ago, 20-inch tires were rare, exotic and mostly reserved for high-end European SUVs or show vehicles gracing the cover of automobile magazines. Those that were available were ultra high performance tires, often with little to no all-season traction and wore very quickly. This is not the case today. In fact, 20" tires are an option on many popular trucks, SUVs and domestic and import crossovers. 

Of the 20" sizes that are used, one of the most common is 275/55R20. This size is often used on SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon. Trucks that commonly use this size include the Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F-150 and can even be used with 20" wheels on newer Toyota Tundras. 

A popular misconception is that one can't find more aggressive On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires in this size. This performance category is one of the most effective in snow traction and light off-road capability in a tire that can be used year-round. Many of the best all-terrain tires on the market are available in this size, such as the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar and Michelin LTX A/T 2.

 Michelin LTX A/T 2

A/T 2


If you're looking for a more street friendly ride and longer wear, I'd suggest the Michelin LTX A/T 2. It compares quite favorably to a long-time favorite that you can learn about by reading, "BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO vs. Michelin LTX A/T 2." For more aggressive snow and off-road traction, consider the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar as your top choice.

Everyone told me I was making a mistake by getting this tire. They said it would be super noisy but it's just as quiet as any other tire I've had. Handling is pretty good, too. Granted, I'm talking about "handling" on a VW Bus but it's still good. What I love most are the 8 ply sidewalls. Even in strong gusts of wind my vehicle stays planted. Car seems more stable now. I had been using 6 ply sidewall tires and these are far superior.

I've tried many different brands of L/T tires over the years and these are - by far - the best. You will not regret getting this tire if you own a VW Bus and they seem to good I'm sure you'll feel that way on any other type of car.

Is the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Building a Lasting Legacy?

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by Tire Rack Team

This past weekend the sports world saw two champions add to their legacy. The new U.S. Open champion added another major title to his resume, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth N.B.A. title since 1999. There’s something to be said about consistently being on top – a place that’s familiar to the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2.

Since its premiere in our survey results back in February 2013, the tire has only known one spot: on top. It has been the top-ranked tire in the Ultra High Performance Summer category because it receives high marks in several areas: hydroplaning resistance, cornering stability and dry traction.

Honed by decades of BFGoodrich g-Force racing where success on the street begins with winning on the track, the tire is used by the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School at Miller Motorsports and Skip Barber Racing for their schools and race series. With racing technology successes incorporated into its design, the g-Force Sport COMP-2 delivers sharp steering response along with wet and dry grip without sacrificing treadwear.

“Accelerate faster. Corner harder. Brake shorter.” This bold statement from BFGoodrich was what we were to expect from the tire when we received it for testing back in July 2012. It definitely impressed! During our time with the tire, it delivered impressive traction, especially in the wet. We determined that it is a very capable Ultra High Performance Summer tire that was ranked first, as it beat out the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport, Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 and Yokohama S. drive.

What will the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2’s legacy be when all is said and done? With 17 straight months in first place, it appears it will be go down as one of the best Ultra High Performance Summer tires.

When you buy a set of four BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires before July 12, you can receive a $70 MasterCard Reward Card.

Wheels and Tires Made in the USA!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

When choosing the right tire or wheel, a very important part of the selection process for some consumers is finding out where the product is made. The following products are a few of our most popular that are exclusively made in the United States.

When looking for tires for your truck, take a look at the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac or Dick Cepek Fun Country. Both tires can be driven on and off the road, and provide great traction while you play hard. As for wheels, the Black Rock line offers durable and affordable steel options that are manufactured in California.

Are you the owner of a coupe, sedan, van or crossover vehicle? Then take a look at the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A or Dunlop Signature II. Both of these Grand Touring All-Season tires offer excellent traction, even in light snow. They're also offered with an exceptional treadlife warranty.

If you're currently shopping for a tire or wheel that is manufactured in the United States, give any of these choices a consideration. You can also click on the "Specs" tab on a product's page for any tire and our website will display the country of origin for the tire.

Shop by vehicle and find the tire that's right for your application.

Bought my 2008 JKR last March from the original owner W/ 59,000 miles and the original M/T KM's. Have about 65,000 miles on them now and are about at the end of tread life, will probably replace with a new set in the fall. They're a little noisy and the ride is a little hard, but it is a Wrangler after all. Will definitely buy again.

Went from the Star Spec to these and have blown alway my track times.Tto be honest I also went from the 7 inch wide rim with the 205 to the 9 inch wide 225 rivals. But a second difference on Jefferson 1.1 mile course is huge and feel it's more the tires then the increased width.

VERY HAPPY with these. Hot/sunny SoCal desert 24/7 and a few months Tahoe snow/ice. 3 yrs and 50k miles later time for 4 more. Some superficial cracking on the sidewalls and where the tread meets the sidewall but no other problems. I wonder if I had treated them regularly with tire conditioners or if it was kept in a garage or in a shaded parking spot if the cracking would not have occurred. Kept tire pressure per placard on the vehicle. Have also taken them on the beach and on a few fire/very bumpy dirt roads- quite a few very bumpy from the wind making "waves" in the desert sand/dirt roads/back roads/desert trails too! Tire cables in winter were not a problem either. No slipping, no squealing.

I absolutely love these tires. First off I matched front and rear sizes to 275/40/17. The have been wonderful in all driving. The front tires will out last 2 sets of rears however that is my heavy foot's fault. These tires are sensitive to pressure adjustments. Chalk test them so you have the right air pressure. They do loose some grip the more they wear down. But that being said these tire down to the wear bars still have better traction worn than a new toyo proxies. I absolutely love these tires and I hope BF keeps making them
