Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excessive road noise I've never owned a BFGoodrich tire until I purchased these. They handle well and are good in wet conditions. My issue with these tires is the excessive road noise. I purchased 4 tires, but only had two installed on the rear, because my front tires ( of a different brand) were still in good shape. As the front tires wore down, I moved the rear BFG tires to the front, and had the other new BFG tires installed on the rear. The road noise after this change was more than I cared for. I know you may be asking, "what kind of wear was on the tires that I moved to the front?" The wear was even on the sides, but showing some signs of over inflation in the center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stickiest of the competetive group. Amazing grip even during the break in period. Have been using the tires for a couple of weeks now and am routinely able to take severe corners at double or more than the suggested speeds. It rained three days last week... or did it? The tires paid it no mind. I have yet to get even a squeal or slip out of them. The only slip seen is the smile breaking out on my face in a cloverleaf! On a more aesthetic note, the tread pattern looks particularly aggressive, symmetrical, and displaying a lot of contact area. Excellent balance of sticky compounding too. The best product in the competitive line, and the best value as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More noise then g-Force T/A KDWS I bought these to replace my OEM original g-Force T/A KDWS on my 2007 Mustang GT Convertible, as I live in Florida and really only need a summer tire not all-weather. So far these tires are great for the price, but they definitely have a little more roise noise compared to the KDWS. I drive with the top down 90% of the time so perhaps I am more sensitive to it, but so far I can't really tell a big different between the COMP-2 and the KDWS except that the COMP-2 were less expensive and little more noisy. Grip seems about the same. I don't drive on the track, mostly surface roads and a little highway here and there. If a tiny bit extra noise will bother you, stick with the KDWS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVING THIS TIRE I absolutely love this tire I have a 2015 Camaro SS and I run this car may it be street, strip, mountain, or track. These tires out handle any tire I have ever had. my car came with prielli from factory which have absolutely no grip. went to hankook and those were gone in 5k miles been on bfgoodrich g force sport comp 2 for about 25k miles now gone through about 2 rear sets but each set is lasting about 12-15k without compromise and that's including very hard driving and burnouts. my fronts have now lasted be a good 25k miles of hard driving thank you bf Goodrich for this amazing tire at an amazing price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance Tire These are great performance tires. If you are looking for something very quiet and very comfortable you may want to look elsewhere. There is a definate increase in road noise from the factory A/S tires that were on before but it doesn't bother me too much. Ride is also slightly stiffer, but thats not why I bought these tires. The grip in both wet and dry conditions is outstanding. Cornering ability is also great, has a very good feel and inspires confidence. I have driven them in cold weather and while they aren't great in the cold, I did not feel as if they were unsafe for normal driving. These will be my tires of choice from now on for my fun car, I am very happy with them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Growl After I purchased a new car with RFT's that I didn't like at all I wanted a good summer performance tire. So I purchased a full set of the Comp 2's. The ride was much nicer, softer yet good grip BUT the tire growl is just terrible. So bad that I can hear the tread noise over the radio at speeds. So after having them only for three days I will be exchanging them for a more quiet set of tires. Overall they are good tired from my limited driving on them but their tread growl was more than I could stand. I rated "comfort" as good because they are comfortable tires but not comfortable to my ears.

Speed Rating:

The speed rating is a measure of what speed the tire can safely maintain for sustained periods of time. A higher speed rating will generally indicate that you will have better control and handling characteristics. Speed rating standards are established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Manufacturers assign speed ratings to tires after extensive performance testing. On the sidewall of every tire, you’ll find one of these speed rating codes:

M – Up to 81 mph
N – Up to 87 mph
P – Up to 93 mph
Q – Up to 99 mph
R – Up to 106 mph
S – Up to 112 mph
T – Up to 118 mph
H – Up to 130 mph
V – Up to 149 mph
W – Up to 168 mph
Y – Up to 186 mph
Z – (See Below)

What does ‘Up to 99 mph’ really mean?
Tires with a Q speed rating can safely sustain speeds of up to 99 miles per hour. The tire may be able to reach higher speeds, but traveling at speeds higher than 99 mph for any length of time would be unsafe - the tire is not designed to handle it.

What is a Z Rating?
For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a Z rating may appear in the size designation ...above 186 mph, a Z rating must appear in the size designation, including a Y speed symbol in brackets.

A Few Tips About Speed Ratings…
Never mix tires with different speed ratings, as this may cause serious handling problems.

We don’t recommend downgrading the speed rating of your tires, as the vehicle manufacturer has done extensive testing to determine which tires match the various driving characteristics of the vehicle. However, if you are looking for better handling, there is generally no problem in moving up to a higher speed-rated tire.

Most importantly: Put safety first. The speeds shown are test speeds; they are not recommended speeds.

Temperature Rating:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated A – B – C. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

Traction Grade:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA – A – B – C. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Treadwear Grade:

A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Looking for new tires with optimal traction? Or are long-lasting treads a bigger priority? There’s a simple way to compare tire specs!

The Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) system was developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assist consumers in the purchase of their tires by providing a standard grading system used by all tire manufacturers. Tire manufacturers use the UTQG system to grade their tires in three important areas: treadwear, traction and temperature. The UTQG grade for each tire is shown on the paper label affixed to the tire and is also molded in the sidewall.

Treadwear Grade – A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Traction Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA ABC. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Temperature Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated ABC. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

UTQG is a great way to compare tires from various manufacturers and between specific lines from the same manufacturer. Remember: The UTQG isn’t a safety rating and it doesn’t guarantee a tire’s mileage performance - but you can use the UTQG in conjunction with price, warranty, appearance and recommendations to make the right tire choice for your needs. If you have any questions about UTQG or various tire lines, the Big O Tires team is always ready to help!

Hauling groceries – or bricks? The Load Rating or Load Index indicates how much weight each tire can safely support.

Every tire’s load rating is stamped into its sidewall. Once you know the load rating, you can use the chart below to determine the amount of weight that one tire can support. Then just multiply the weight by four - or the number of wheels on your vehicle - to determine your vehicle’s maximum load-carrying capacity.

Load Rating Table

Sometimes the maximum load (for example, 1060 kg) will be stamped into the sidewall so that you don't have to decipher the load rating. Remember: never install tires with a lower load-carrying capacity than the tires that were installed on your vehicle by the manufacturer!

Load Range:

The load rating is a measure of the tire's strength — its ability to hold air pressure under load.

The load rating influences the sidewall strength of a vehicle tire. If a tire has a load rating that is too low, the handling of the vehicle could become unstable as the sidewall buckles under the vehicle's weight. Conversely, a much higher load rating than needed can dramatically harshen ride quality.

The recommended load rating for a vehicle's tires can be found in its owner's manual. It is also normally affixed to a sticker located on one of the vehicle's door jams. If you are replacing tires supplied with the vehicle from the manufacturer, the load rating written on the tires is an appropriate guide.

Sidewall:

There are other codes on some tires that provide you with additional information, some of which are specific to light truck tire applications. Some of the other codes that you might find on your tires include:

LT = Stands for light truck application. Example: LT235/85R16
C, D or E = Load range indication for light truck applications
REIN = Reinforced
OWL = Outlined White Letters
RWL = Raised White Letters
ORWL = Outlined Raised White Letters
B, BLK, BW, BSW = Blackwall or Black Sidewall
W, WW, WSE – Whitewall or White Sidewall
XNW = Extra Narrow White Width
XL = Extra Load Capacity

Section Width:

The linear distance between the outside sidewalls of an inflated tire without any load (exclusive of protruding side ribs and decorations).

Sidewall Aspect Ratio:

The ratio between tire height and width.

Important note on quoted prices:

Prices quoted do not include additional charges for sales taxes, mounting and balancing, valve stems, tire disposal fees, state recycling fees, tire protection plans and other charges.

How Are Tire Sizes Specified?
The first number describes width of the tire (section), the second number describes the aspect ratio (profile), and the third number the wheel diameter (rim size).
Alignment makes a big difference in how long tires last, how much gas you use, and steering and safety. When you buy new tires, we'll make sure they're properly aligned with a free alignment check!

What is TPMS?


TPMS is an electronic system that monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are under- or over-inflated. Proper tire inflation not only boosts your safety, but also the life of the tire and its fuel economy.

TPMS

Some components of the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced due to wear and corrosion over time. Our TPMS rebuild kit includes all the necessary parts to service your TPMS sensor and keep this important safety feature functioning properly.
