BFGoodrich® Tires Introduces the Long Trail T/A® Tour Tire


Designed for CUV and SUV owners who hit the road more often than the trail, BFGoodrich® Tires has released the Long Trail T/A® Tour tire. This new addition to BFGoodrich Tires' touring family offers the perfect solution for drivers who demand better road manners and more control without sacrificing performance. Available in 35 sizes for 15- to 20-inch wheels, the BFGoodrich Tires Long Trail T/A Tour tire fills the performance void and has the growing CUV/SUV market covered.

"We wanted to give crossover and sport utility owners a better choice for all-season handling and control without sacrificing comfort and wear life - and the BFGoodrich Tires Long Trail T/A Tour is the answer," said Joe Mazur, light-truck brand category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "The Long Trail T/A Tour tire delivers aggressive control mile after mile while accentuating the precise all season handling found in today's CUV and SUV vehicles. After all, today's CUV and SUV drivers are very demanding and now they have a choice when it comes to buying a tire that suits their needs when it comes to hauling more than groceries."

A few characteristics that are important to the Long Trail T/A Tour's performance include a closed shoulder design with unique contoured tread blocks for crisp handling and precise cornering, something most people don't expect from their CUV or SUV. These tread features are melded with a rigid center rib, strategic siping and optimized rib shifting, which translate into a positive on-center feel at highway speeds, exceptional all-season traction and a quiet ride.

All this performance and technology is packaged in a tough, two-ply polyester carcass featuring BFGoodrich Tires' equal Tension Containment (eTeC®) System and includes a high-strength bead that exceeds light-truck demands. These attributes allow the Long Trail T/A Tour to stand up to spirited driving and retain its shape at high speeds for a precise and controlled ride, even in larger vehicles. The Long Trail T/A Tour is even backed with a 60,000-mile tread wear warranty, because BFGoodrich Tires knows what those who love to drive - and those who drive a lot, expect from their tires.
