BFGoodrich Radial Long Trail T/A
Initial Review: 58,000 miles on tires
January 31, 2012

These tires will soon be replaced after 58K miles of hard use. Daily driving, highway trips to many miles of trailer towing with no complaints from me. Winter traction can be an issue but in mild temperatures when the snow falls these hold their own. They wallow in corners a bit only under quick driving due to the squishy sidewalls. In normal use they're hard to beat. Great dollar to mile value. They no longer make many sizes in this tires as it's been replaced with their Long Trail Tour line, which is a shame.

Even now the tread that is left can still be moved with a push of a finger. Great pliability is a plus in a tire as the miles pile on. The TA's offered a very stable ride, even when towing at 70mph. ABS didn't kick in as much in the winter with these as they did with the previous GoodYear HP tires whick after two years hardened up like a rock. BFG could've done one better and offered this as a Light Truck tire, and it would sell just as well as the passenger line. I'm debating if I'll get the BFG AT tires with more sidewall bite, or the new Tour tire that replaced this Long Trail T/A line...decisions....
