Light Snow Traction
Deep Snow Traction

BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Reviews
We must admit that interpreting the reviews can be challenging to the untrained eye. You will find both comments praising the tire's durability and performance as well as comments indicating that this is an inferior tire with a poor tread life.
How is this possible? It has a lot to do with the design used by BFG on this tire. The BFGoodrich Advantage T/A is manufactured with a special compound that provides excellent tread life (hence its amazing Treadlife Warranty). However, this compound and BFGoodrich's ETEC system make the tire somewhat "hard," which can be a huge drawback on compact sedans.
Simply put, this tire performs best on midsize sedans and AWD vehicles that require stiffer tires to support their higher weight and their softer suspension.
