BFGoodrich g-Force Rival
Initial Review: 3,000 miles on tires
July 01, 2014

Please note that all my ratings are relative to other tires in class - street legal track/AX tires. note also that the form does not allow me to reflect the proper stagger for this car. Finally, mileage is irrelevant - these have seen 6 track events. in Advanced run groups.

I had very high hopes for these tires from their AX reputation. however, what i found was a tire that had very odd/vague turn-in response, and such a soft overall feel that i did not get a lot of feedback - necessary to push to near the limit. I also found that it did not handle long runs and high heat well. All this says it could in fact be a great AX tire, but not so good track tire. My wear has been good considering , but not as good as the similar Yoko AD-08 (which also has better feel and responsiveness, but maybe a touch less grip). While this is - in objective measures a pretty good tire, it has drained my confidence and held back my lap times - so for me its a non-starter. Too bad since i liked the g-force sport-2 so very much, even on track!
