BFGoodrich Traction T/A T
Follow-Up Review: 15,000 miles on tires
December 04, 2011
This tire has absolutely no traction on ice, snow, and I mean any kind of snow. Driving through Texas a year ago I hit a snow storm, and with light snow on the highway every time I stepped on the gas the vehicle would lose traction and the rear end tried to become the front. In deep snow my only hope was to keep the speed up and try not to stop or slow down. These tires are a death wish on anything but nice dry roads. I live in Arizona where it is dry most of the time, but when we do get some rain, these tires spin without much provocation, and are unsafe at any speed. That drive up to Michigan last January, cost me one rear quarter panel damaged in one spin out, a concussion in a spin out in Texas, and 5 years off my life in anxiety.

This tire already shows appreciable wear, tends to lean when cornering hard, and compared to Khumo which these tires replace, the ride is harder. The front end has been aligned and the tires balanced, but gas milage has dropped quite a bit. I suppose for the cost of this tire, and being on a performance vehicle it is adequate, but when it comes time to replace back two I think I'll pay a little more, the old adage you get what you pay for being true in this case.
