Get your new BF Goodrich tyres fitted as early as tomorrow with Tyres on the Drive, at a time and location that’s convenient for you.
For a company which can trace its history back more than 100 years and whose products have gone everywhere, from into space to the winner’s rostrum in motorsports, you might expect that BF Goodrich provides a wide range of tyres for today’s car market. Its story began when Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich, a military surgeon, set up America’s first rubber factory in 1870 and a decade later its fortunes took off when the fledgling car industry got into gear and it supplied them with tyres. Speaking of taking off, when NASA needed tyres for its Space Shuttle programme, it entrusted the task to BF Goodrich.
Even decades before that, when flying pioneer Charles Lindbergh made the first non-stop Atlantic flight, it was BF Goodrich he relied on to make sure his arrival was as safe as his departure. Back on earth and looking at what it does today, BF Goodrich (now part of the Michelin tyre empire) is regarded as among the very best names in a couple of big sectors, especially in SUV and winter tyres. Its products in both markets have won numerous industry awards. The company does specialise in SUV, van and more extreme weather tyres, but its products are developed and sized for family cars as well and drivers are getting the benefit of more than a century of experience – even if some of it is out of this world!
This award-winning tyre fits medium sized cars and is an all-season unit which performs well against rival brands. This second gen g-Grip All Season gets a B rating for wet weather grip, stops in 3.5 metres less on a dry road than before and has increased its resistance to aquaplaning by 8% in a straight line and 4% in a curve.
Designed for SUVs, the BF Goodrich Urban Terrain is built with much stronger cord casings. It has great traction in summer and winter and with its 3PMSF (three peak mountain snowflake) marking qualifies as a winter tyre too.
The G-Force Winter is suitable for smaller city cars and mid size MPVs. The g-Force Winter has several safety and convenience advantages over an all-season tyre when the temperature drops. On icy, and especially hilly roads, the G-Force ‘bites’ into the surface to make starting off easier. Once moving, it has hundreds of ‘teeth’ in its central rib running around the circumference to provide good grip.
