BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2
Follow-Up Review: 14,500 miles on tires
June 09, 2014
Just to follow up for those who like me, have other daily drivers and keep their vehicles for a long time. These tires are OLD now. This car spent much idle time garaged (and some time not garaged) for repairs. I got the expected checking in the shoulders but overall they held up well with no leaks or flat spotting. I'm driving them regularly now and am still impressed by their stickiness. I've had limited snow use but when i did, they never left me stuck in a snowbank.<br><br> Ride quality has suffered. They are crazy loud and the ride is harsher. The car jounces more over bad roads, even with the shocks in standard (comfort) mode. They're a bit less responsive and tramlining continues to be an issue but the grip remains. That being said, I still love these tires when they're fresh, but will move on to a quieter HP all-weather design.

This car had OEM Michelin MXVs which let me down during a high performance track day. I went to KDW2s after reading reviews here and found these are a whole new animal. Phenomenal grip for a tire with such good wet traction. I dont even worry about my lead foot wife during rainy runs on high crowned NY highways. The tire is responsive, stable at speed and not especially noisy. But the traction still surprises me wet or dry.
