BFGoodrich® Tires Adds H- and V- Speed-Rated Sizes to the g-Force™ Super Sport A/S


For drivers who opt for high performance in their sporty sedans, coupes and hatchbacks, BFGoodrich Tires has announced an extension to its g-Force™ Super Sport A/S tire line. Available in 16 new H- and V-rated sizes, the BFGoodrich® g-Force™ Super Sport A/S tire will be available to consumers in May 2009, inspiring performance driving all year round.

"At BFGoodrich Tires, we understand that consumers want to drive their performance vehicle in different weather conditions - without sacrificing grip in wet, dry and snow," said Tricia Linder, brand category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "The 16 additional sizes to the g-Force Super Sport A/S tire line will give more drivers the opportunity to experience year-round control through BFGoodrich Tires' track heritage providing the performance expected from a tire, regardless of the weather."

The BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S tire combines all-season control and performance, resulting in a tire that is ready for any corner or straightaway, no matter the weather conditions. Performance and aesthetic features include:

  • Tenacious grip in dry, wet and snow; features anti-hydroplaning Aqua Chute channels for wet conditions and tread blocks designed to grip snow for true year-round control.
  • Year-round performance; all-season rubber compound and eTeC System™ construction for maximum control in any weather.
  • Cutting-edge aesthetics; provides GO with the modern look of our g-Force™ family of tires.

To further increase handling, g-Control™ Sidewall Inserts generate tremendous cornering force for a crisp, sharp steering response, while tread blocks and Maxi Sipe Technology provide more traction in the snow. Don't expect to sacrifice any tread life when experiencing seasonal terrain, the Premium Silica Tread Compound provides exceptional all-weather grip with longevity in mind.

In addition to providing a sense of control in seasonal conditions, the g-Force Super Sport A/S tire is packed with a rim protector that extends past the edge of most OeM and aftermarket wheels to prevent unsightly damage to pricey wheels. The high performance BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S tire is designed for aggressive fitments including those with larger rims and lower-profile tires.
