BFGoodrich g-Force Rival Approved for SCCA Autocross Events

BF Goodrich g-Force RivalThere's quite a bit of excitement among the performance enthusiasts for the new Extreme Performance Summer BFGoodrich g-Force Rival. Trying to regain the "King in the Dry" reputation that BFGoodrich achieved with the now-discontinued g-Force T/A KD, the g-Force Rival is being released size by size as production is completed. For SCCA autocrossers, this roll out would normally present a bit of a challenge because of SCCA's "6 and 4" rule that requires a new tire to be available in six sizes across four rim diameters by April 30th.

Great news! SCCA has confirmed that BFGoodrich's production will meet the "6 and 4" requirement by this date. So, the SCCA has ruled the g-Force Rival legal for immediate use. This is very exciting new for early season autocrossers!

At the time of this writing, three sizes are available:

  1. 205/50R15
  2. 225/45R17
  3. 245/40R18

A total of fifteen sizes have been announced, so be on the look for the additional sizes to become available between now and early June.
