BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S Performance Ratings

Usually, the reliability of tire ratings is closely related to the number of miles reported by consumers. That said, with just 550k+ miles reported, the ratings should be taken with caution. This is because such ratings are susceptible to change over time as new users send their reviews.

Simply put, in the case of these tires, the ratings only indicate their potential in a specific category. That said, it is important to note that this is not the only tire in the Ultra-High Performance All-Season segment with low reported mileage. In fact, within the top 5 of this segment, only the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W/Y-rated) have a higher number of reported miles (4.4M).

Speaking of categories, we will discuss many of them, so you may want to go directly to any of the sections by selecting one below:

The dry performance of this product is simply amazing. These tires excel in cornering stability, as well as traction and steering response. Even if these ratings vary a little over time, we doubt the trend will change.

At first glance, the wet performance seems too good to be true. In fact, they are likely to drop from the #1 spot and eventually give way to the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. However, judging by the values we can see, these tires are unlikely to drop out of the top 3 in this category, which is still a win for BFGoodrich considering their price.

If you are concerned about your tires’ performance on wet pavement, then this may be the solution you have been looking for.
