BFGoodrich® Tires Brings Racing Heritage to Touring with the Advantage T/A™ H/V


For people who love to drive, BFGoodrich® Tires offers the new BFGoodrich Advantage T/A™ tire that brings race-proven performance to day-to-day driving. Most people are not going to be drifting their everyday vehicles while driving around town, but for those looking for improved performance out of their tires, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A is the answer.

Available on March 1, 2009 in 17 different H- and V-rated sizes for touring vehicle fitments, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A tire encompasses many attributes from its racing counterparts and is designed with extended tread life and greater control in mind to give driving enthusiasts the performance they demand.

"At BFGoodrich, we are all about pushing our tires to the limit. Our goal is to provide a touring tire with the heart of a race tire, and the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A tire is just that," said Tricia Linder, H/V brand category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "For consumers, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A tire is ideally positioned to deliver more enjoyable miles in their everyday car. Thanks to its track heritage, this tire offers a performance advantage to the touring tire segment with new levels of control—and fun—to every mile."

Sensible family cars can come with quite a bit of power these days, but they only really have GO when all the power can be put to the ground, which is what makes the Advantage T/A tire different. The tires are performance tested with real world driving in mind and offer a new level of grip designed for aggressive driving and long life.

Performance features for the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A tire include:

  • Non directional tread design; provides ease of maintenance and increased tread life, which is backed by a 60,000-mile tread life warranty and allows owners to focus on nothing but miles of fun ahead.
  • New g-Grip interlocking sipe design; a first for any BFGoodrich tire, the new g-Grip interlocking sipe design provides excellent all-weather bite and responsive handling, whether drivers need traction in the rain, snow or curves.
  • Authentic go-fast looks; the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A tire's authentic "go-fast" look and signature aesthetics provide owners with a sense of BFGoodrich Tires' racing heritage and puts real GO into daily driving.

Additionally, BFGoodrich Tires' equal Tension Containment (eTeC) System™ maintains the tread footprint for consistent high-speed control. The BFGoodrich Advantage T/A tire is also equipped with the g-Wedge™ sidewall stabilizer increasing the sidewall's strength for additional reinforcement and handling capabilities.
