Steering Response

8.9

Since the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2 belongs to the Ultra-High Performance Summer tire segment, it stands to reason that their dry road performance is one of the most important ratings to consider. In that sense, we can say that these tires are second only to the category leader, the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires, which boast a score of 9.3. 

If you need a set of tires with excellent traction, cornering stability, and steering response, then this tire is a good alternative to consider.

While it is true that "summer" tires are not designed to excel in wet conditions, it is also true that they should offer acceptable traction and hydroplaning resistance. Unfortunately, these tires fail to keep up with the rest of their peers in this category, which exhibits an overall score of 8.7.

If you live in an area where rainfall is frequent throughout the year, then these tires are probably not for you.

Noise

7.1

Comfort is definitely not one of the strong points of these tires. In this category, they lag behind all of their peers by a wide margin, making these tires the worst choice for those looking for good ride quality.

The striking tread design is accompanied by high noise levels that can be annoying to some drivers.

BFGoodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2 Treadwear Performance

Treadwear Performance Ratings

Treadwear

7.6

Unfortunately, durability is not a factor where these tires excel. In fact, they are at the bottom of their segment in terms of tread wear. This result is largely due to BFGoodrich's silica-infused COMP-2 compound, which gives them excellent dry grip but a short tread life.

This is a tire that literally goes all out to give you maximum dry performance, sacrificing tread life in the process.
