BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 A/S vs. BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S

BFGoodrich was the first American tire manufacturer and is now owned by Michelin. Given Michelin's success in the ultra high performance market, it's no surprise to see that the top BFGoodrich performance street tire, the g-Force Sport COMP-2, has also received outstanding ratings in testing and customer feedback. You can learn more about the g-Force Sport COMP-2 by reading, "BFGoodrich g-Force Sport vs. g-Force Sport COMP-2."

Building on the success of the Sport COMP-2, BFGoodrich has designed an Ultra High Performance All-Season version of the tire to meet the needs of drivers who need some cold weather and light snow traction. This new design, called the g-Force COMP-2 A/S is replacing the aging BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S .

BFGoodrich's main goal was to improve the snow and wet traction on the new g-Force COMP A/S compared to its predecessor. They certainly followed through with a 15% increase in snow traction, while also increasing wet traction and even improving dry grip a bit over the old g-Force Super Sport A/S. These improvements put BFGoodrich's new tire back into the game while maintaining its sporty directional tread pattern and stylish sidewall design.  

We expect this tire to be a strong contender in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category and an ideal choice for drivers of sporty coupes and sedans that need some all-weather capability.

How could you say that "while also increasing wet traction and even improving dry grip a bit over the old g-Force Super Sport A/S". According to your own tests the grip of Comp-2 and Super Sport is identical in wet 0.75, while Comp-2 is inferior in dry (0.91 vs 0.95)

Alex,

The subject of this particular blog is comparing the old BFGgoodrich Gforce Sport A/S to the new BFGoodrich Comp2 A/S.

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a summer only performance tire and is not discussed.

Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that test conditions vary from day to day, sometimes dramatically. If you are comparing testing data, it is only valid to compare tires to each other within the same test
