Initial Review, 6,000 Miles on Tires

Bought the BF Goodrich Radial T/A tire for my GMC Sierra 1500 2WD standard cab stepside pickup as a replacement for Goodyear Eagle GT tires that I religiously ran on for many years (only to learn that Goodyear stopped making that tire in a 15" when it came time to replace them.) I wanted the White Letter tire and as many of you are finding out, 15" RWL this is becoming a dying breed.

This was the first set of BF Goodrich's I have ever owned and I was pleasantly surprised how much better and smoother they ride vs the Goodyears. Dry pavement driving is great, and wet pavement is good and acceptable. I typically tone it down in wet weather just because you can't expect a light truck to handle like a car due to the light rear end.

The raised white lettering is not quite as big as what Goodyear does and the BF Goodrich positioning of the letters are closer to the rim, vs Goodyear, which positions the lettering closer towards the treads. Not really a big deal to some, but if you have attention to detail like I do, its worth noting the appearance difference. Also as a notation, the tire shop filled my BF Goodrich tires with Nitrogen instead of air.

After having owned these tires for over 6 months, I wished I had switched to them earlier based on their ride and appearance. Unless something unforeseen happens, I would be likely to repurchase and recommend to a friend
