BFGoodrich® Tires Debuts New Advantage™ T/A® Sport: A Tire With A Mission For Daily Fun

Defy the Weather, Control the Curves, Enjoy the Drive for Kilometres and Kilometres

LAVAL, QC, Aug. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - BFGoodrich® Tires is bringing fun to drivers' daily routines with the introduction of the all-new BFGoodrich® Advantage™ T/A® Sport. This all-season tire is designed to extract maximum enjoyment out of everyday driving without sacrificing any of the practicality that drivers require as they go about their day.

Available in a wide selection of sedan, sporty coupe, passenger CUV and minivan fitments, the BFGoodrich Advantage™ T/A® Sport delivers the ideal combination of performance and versatility. Excellent steering response, handling and durability combine with optimal flexibility to prepare drivers for a wide range of changing weather and road conditions. The tire also sports a unique new look that sets it apart.

"BFGoodrich Tires is a brand that encourages drivers to explore the fun that driving can provide," said Marine Delhon-Bugard, marketing manager for BFGoodrich Tires, Canada. "The overall message to drivers with active lifestyles, busy family lives or a combination thereof is simple: You don't have to settle for merely getting from point A to point B. Because performance is happening with these tires on every drive, you can have a little fun along the way, every day with the BFGoodrich® Advantage™ T/A® Sport tire."

This comprehensive approach that BFGoodrich has taken results in a tire that consistently embodies the idea of Daily Fun:

  • For all-season traction
    • Improved traction - spring, summer and fall
    • 12% better wet braking1
    • 15% better snow traction2
  • Undeniable performance, kilometres after kilometres
    • Rule the road with tread life you can trust
    • Backed by a 110,000 km warranty3
  • New levels of handling
    • Control the curves and corner with confidence
    • 15% better dry handling4


Innovative Features Enhance Everyday Performance
The performance characteristics behind the new Advantage™ T/A® Sport are achieved through innovative technology developed from years of research, testing and racing. These include:

  • Locking 3-D Active Sipe Technology helps enhance longevity and performance. The sipes lock together under the tire's footprint to provide stability, which translates into confidence behind the wheel and gives the tire more biting edges for significantly increased wet and light snow traction.
  • Advanced all-season tread compounds and our Aqua-Flume™ Technology further contribute to outstanding all-season grip and excellent wet-weather performance.
  • Next Generation ETEC (Equal Tension Containment) System™ keeps the tire footprint optimized during cornering and high-speed situations6, while the Next Generation g-Wedge™ Sidewall Stabilizer helps to ensure crisp handling and a comfortable ride. Finally, a continuous center rib delivers consistent steering response and road feel, while full-depth features help maintain consistent performance and look throughout the life of the tire.

The BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport, on sale as of Aug. 1, 2016, is offered in 54 sizes, ranging from 15" to 18" with T, H and V speed ratings and includes six new sizes not offered previously (three 18", two 17", and one 16").

Available in 54 Sizes5
