BFGoodrich recently introduced the new g-Force Sport COMP-2 high-performance tire and we had a chance to participate in the initial tests. The tire was installed on a variety of vehicles (Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, Subaru WRX STi and VW Golf GTi) in an effort to experience the tire's capability on rear-wheel, all-wheel and front-wheel drive applications.
Across several different tests (dry autocross, wet autocross and dry stopping distance), the new BFGoodrich was pitted against Kumho's Ecsta SPT KU31, Hankook's Ventus V12 evo K110 and the Yokohama S.drive with very good results.
In the wet, the COMP-2 proved to be better for front-end traction in the corners and provided a more balanced and predictable feel. In the dry braking test, the COMP-2 seemed to be the most composed of the group and beat the competition by a 5-7 foot advantage in stops from 60 mph.
Unfortunately, the drive didn't include any "real world" road time, so we plan on conducting a full test at our headquarters in the summer of 2012, so stay tuned for that report. To see what else we learned about the tire, watch "BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Introductory Track Drive."
Note: BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires are designed to have a very square shoulder tread design and section widths, which may cause clearance issues in plus sized fitments. Be sure to consult with one of our sales specialists to discuss the issue and how it may affect your application.
