BFGoodrich Tires Releases the Next Generation of All-Season Control with the g-Force™ Super Sport A/


Designed to thrill even the most hardcore driving enthusiast while inspiring performance driving year-round, BFGoodrich® Tires has released the g-Force™ Super Sport A/S® (All-Season) tire, its most technologically advanced product to date. Available in 29 sizes, BFGoodrich Tires' g-Force Super Sport A/S is now available for consumers to experience the ultimate in all-season control.

"The urge to produce a true all-season tire is a powerful motivator - and it's the basis for the most technologically advanced tire we've ever made," said Doug Brown, brand category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "The BFGoodrich Tires g-Force Super Sport A/S lets drivers take control of their driving experience by offering aggressive dry traction with no compromises in rain and snow while maintaining a quiet ride. The bottom line is, when we say all-season, we mean it. This tire brings true year-round control and performance to enthusiasts, for a confident driving experience every day."

The key to the g-Force Super Sport All-Season's performance is its complexity both inside and out. From its structural wizardry to its Multi Grip Tread Technology, the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S tire is more than just a pretty tread. Performing like three tires in one, the g-Force Super Sport All-Season was built with a simple rule in mind - don't let a little weather spoil the fun.

After all, driving enthusiasts can't stand creeping through snow and rain because their tires can't keep up. That is why the BFGoodrich Tires' team of engineers and designers enhanced the g-Force Super Sport A/S with an aggressive tread pattern featuring deep, wide vertical grooves, radically sweptback Aqua Chute lateral grooves and Snow Hook tread blocks for a confident footprint in the snow and wet conditions. The result is a tire that is ready for any corner or straightaway in any weather.

All this technology is packaged in a dimensionally stable polyester carcass featuring two full-width steel belts and BFGoodrich Tires' new Precision Tension Containment System (PReTec®), High-Modulous Sub-Tread, g-Control® Sidewall inserts, plus a continuous center rib for added handling ability. "Basically, these are just a few fancy ways of saying the g-Force Super Sport A/S is designed to attack - not tip-toe," concluded Brown.

Unique attributes that also lend to the BFGoodrich Tires g-Force Super Sport A/S performance and appeal include:

  • Multi-Grip Tread Technology; three unique tread compounds designed for flexibility in cold, wet and dry conditions are positioned side by side across the gripping surface of the tire and combined with three dedicated tread- design zones. The combination of the three-tread compounds and design zones is the foundation for delivering uncompromising year-round all-season traction and performance.
  • Precision Tension Containment System (PReTec®); a continuous single-strand, spiral-wrapped, aramid fiber reinforcement placed precisely under the tread. This feature gives the g-Force Super Sport A/S incredible strength while maintaining a consistent footprint at high speed.
  • V-Shift Noise Reduction; specific tread placement and sizing of the tread blocks that help reduce sound amplification resulting in a smooth quiet ride.
  • Heavy-duty sidewall rim protector; extends just past the edge of most OeM and aftermarket wheels to prevent curb damage.
