What an amazing tire! Put a set (265 rear, 225 front) on newly bought used Porsche 911 cabriolet. Only 4000 mi so far but great performance. Amazing stability on wet roads (I mean Florida downpour wet).Found myself at 70+ mph with no hydroplane feeling. Wouldn't recommend it though for general safety. This is my 3rd 911. Have had them all. Yokohama, Parelli, Michelin. These are the best! Wear looks great. Will return with review after a few more thousand.

This is proving to be a great tire. Drove in a blinding rainstorm at 70 mph with no hydroplaning. Road noise is almost non-existent and ride is excellent. For the price you can't beat this tire. It is as good, if not better, than any tire I have owned and this includes Michelin, Yokohama, Pirelli and Continental. I don't plan to drive this car in snow but did want a tire that would perform well in cold temperatures.

This is my 3rd consecutive set of Yokohama Parada Spec-X's on the Infinti FX35 AWD. I average around 45,000 miles per set and they are an all-around excellent value for the money. Excellent tread life, great dry/wet responsiveness, and great ride comfort and low noise. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone with a similar crossover application. I will buy another set for this vehicle when these are done.

I love how these tires handle. Take in consideration that the rubber on these tires are thinner than most tires built to last mileage wise. Expect to spend more on tires that doesn't last longer than approximately 30K miles due to the fact that the rubber on these tires are thinner than those tires that can go for 40K+ mileage. The reason for the rubber on these tires are thinner is because performance wise it handles better on the road, it has that "hug" affect. There is more control over the vehicle than those other tires that can last 40K+ miles. Of course, these tires wear out quickly just to the fact that the rubber is made a little thinner.

So, yes these are great .. sport performance. Cost is expected for performance not for the long lasting performance. So depending what is sought out..These are the best for performance handling. The cost is steep .. but you get what you pay for. I'd purchase it again!

Is the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Building a Lasting Legacy?

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by Tire Rack Team

This past weekend the sports world saw two champions add to their legacy. The new U.S. Open champion added another major title to his resume, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth N.B.A. title since 1999. There’s something to be said about consistently being on top – a place that’s familiar to the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2.

Since its premiere in our survey results back in February 2013, the tire has only known one spot: on top. It has been the top-ranked tire in the Ultra High Performance Summer category because it receives high marks in several areas: hydroplaning resistance, cornering stability and dry traction.

Honed by decades of BFGoodrich g-Force racing where success on the street begins with winning on the track, the tire is used by the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School at Miller Motorsports and Skip Barber Racing for their schools and race series. With racing technology successes incorporated into its design, the g-Force Sport COMP-2 delivers sharp steering response along with wet and dry grip without sacrificing treadwear.

“Accelerate faster. Corner harder. Brake shorter.” This bold statement from BFGoodrich was what we were to expect from the tire when we received it for testing back in July 2012. It definitely impressed! During our time with the tire, it delivered impressive traction, especially in the wet. We determined that it is a very capable Ultra High Performance Summer tire that was ranked first, as it beat out the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport, Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 and Yokohama S. drive.

What will the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2’s legacy be when all is said and done? With 17 straight months in first place, it appears it will be go down as one of the best Ultra High Performance Summer tires.

When you buy a set of four BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires before July 12, you can receive a $70 MasterCard Reward Card.
