As the summer is coming to an end, it gives me a chance to reflect back on the days spent with the BF Goodrich G-Force Sport C2's. I had plenty of dry weather during my introduction to a tire which excelled in the heat of summer. Acceleration, cornering, and braking were all strengthened with the installation of the C2. This tire has excellent turn-in response which brought a great deal of agility back to an aging car. The aggressive handling by no means detracts from the ride comfort of the tire. One will find themselves quite relaxed on a long stretch of highway, but as soon as the tight turns of your favorite back road hits the front bumper ... that merciless grin on your face soon appears while the tread becomes alive with excitement and eager for the challenges ahead.
Bring on the rain! Finally, a chance to drive this BFG C2 on wet pavement to see if the tire is just as appealing as the dry evaluation. This tire had more fun in the rain than my 4 year old in a water balloon fight. The C2's powered through the heaviest of rains with no hint of hydroplaning. The tire was confident in standing water offering a sense of protection for myself and the family. It also provided a great deal of corner stability on the wet pavement even in rapid transitions with no detection of understeer.
The best attribute is still be be reported. Treadwear: Being boastful about treadwear in a summer performance tire is the equivalent to bragging about photos you have taken of Bigfoot! Nobody in there right mind is going to believe you. However, I am quite impressed by the durability of the C2's tread compound. After a entire summer of spirited driving, there is consistent tread wear even at the outer shoulder. I am very confident that more summers (yes - that's plural) are yet to come with this tire, and will certainly look forward to every mile.
