BFGoodrich Brings Back Excitement and Passion to Driving

BFGoodrich, an American brand of tires, with over 115 years of proven performance, is poised to make a strong on-road statement, bringing exciting and pleasurable driving experience with the new on-road BFGoodrich Advantage T/A® Drive and T/A® SUV tires and the already available off-road BFGoodrich All -Terrain T/A® KO2.

Since 1896, BFGoodrich has been designing and producing tires with the driving enthusiast in mind and equipping their vehicles with the ability to drive through any number of different driving situations to ensure one to experience an exciting drive to their destination.

“The love of driving has long been a source of inspiration at BFGoodrich. As one of America’s most trusted brands, BFGoodrich knows what it takes to meet the aspirations and expectations of demanding drivers who highly value control, performance and fun driving.

“The innovative approach that has made BFGoodrich a legend in the tire industry, offers a lineup of products in tandem with its legendary status for on the road, off-road as well as on the track.

“BFGoodrich is once again demonstrating the innovative cutting edge that makes the company a well-recognised brand in the tire industry with the launch of the new BFGoodrich Advantage T/A® Drive and T/A® SUV tires and the already available off-road BFGoodrich All -Terrain T/A® KO2. These tires are dedicated to make your daily commute and weekend getaways an unconditional pleasure,” said Michael Nunag, Chief Representative of Michelin Philippines.

Offering an upgraded grip and a smooth, long lasting ride, the new on-road BFGoodrich Advantage T/A® range delivers a pleasant everyday ride at an equally reasonable price. Best suited for city and urban driving, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A® range is developed for the drivers of sedan and sport utility vehicle.

BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Drive & SUV are tires with proven performance, value and will ensure drivers to be in control, in any weather or demanding road conditions.

The tires respond to drivers’ every command, thanks to enhanced symmetric tread design with rigid tread blocks and shoulder, as well as “jagged” grooves for excellent handling and control, leading to an exciting and pleasurable drive.

Drivers will also feel undeterred to experience a great drive in any weather condition, as the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Drive & SUV’s large tread block with deep wide longitudinal, latitudinal grooves and sipes will ensure great braking in both wet and dry surfaces.

Built with a strong structure of multiple plies and reinforced at shoulder as well as bead area, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Drive & SUV are “tough” and are for drivers who love to make their way through challenging road conditions.

The other innovative tyre, BFGoodrich All -Terrain T/A® KO2 is designed as a tire that will pose no boundaries for drivers taking on a new world of adventures.

Engineered from BFGoodrich’s incomparable championship off-road motorsports racing technology, the KO2 delivers exceptional toughness, tread life and traction for traversing the harshest conditions, including gravel, dirt, rock, mud and snow. The new KO2 provides consumers the confidence to take on the toughest challenges for work or play.

Building on BFGoodrich’s long heritage as an innovative all-terrain tire maker, the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A® KO2 tire is the first consumer tire to incorporate the company’s race-proven and race-winning CoreGard™ technology that gives it unmatched toughness against sidewall splitting. Compared to the already formidable current KO tire, the new KO2 is 20 percent stronger in this critical off-road performance area.

The rugged KO2 is also durable, lasting twice as long on gravel roads and 15 percent longer on asphalt, allowing off-road enthusiasts to extend their adventures and working professionals to get more use out of the tire.

In addition, the KO2 improves its already legendary tradition of all-terrain performance with 10 percent greater traction in the mud compared to the previous-generation KO tire.

BFGoodrich Advantage T/A® Drive and T/A® SUV tires will be available in the Philippines starting February 2017.
