Why Buy BFG Tires? Invest In A Legacy Of Success

“From the deserts of Baja to the badlands of Dakar, BFGoodrich has seen—and won—it all,” states the BFG tire website. That might sound like hyperbole, but it’s not!

Their trophy shelf is packed with awards, accolades, and record-breaking firsts, including:

  • Over 200 off-road champions since their first Baja 1000 victory, including a stretch of 21 consecutive Baja 1000 titles between 1986 and 2007
  • An unprecedented run from 2006-2010 at the World Rally Championship (WRC), during which BFG tires won all drivers’ and constructors’ titles up for grabs
  • The honour of being the first tire manufacturer to win consecutive Indianapolis 500 titles, and more

Of course, BFG tires aren’t only for off-roaders and track stars. Using the same tools and technology involved in their award-winning performance and A/T tire production, BF Goodrich has created a winning lineup of tires for daily drivers, including:

BFG Tires Dominate On The Track, Off-road And On Your Daily Drive

Adding to their legacy of success, BFG tires continue to rank among the top performers in 2022 track and off-road tests.

In off-road tire tests for The Manual, the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 All-Season tire scored top marks, performing equally conquering a winding, rocky course and getting up to speed on highway on-ramps. Testers praised the BFG tires’ unyielding traction and “insane toughness,” courtesy of the same CoreGard sidewall technology used in the KM3 (Spurlock, 2022). These BFG tires also offered better ride comfort and less road noise compared to other all-terrain tires, and decent gas mileage, which is rare for heavy duty tires.

Similarly, in a side-by-side comparison of BFG tires’ track performance versus Chinese value brand Sailun tires, BFGoodrich dominated in blind slalom and emergency avoidance tests, exhibiting (Bettencourt, 2022):

  • Shorter, more confident braking in both wet and dry conditions
  • Less slipping off the start line
  • Sharper transitions in the slalom and moose test (emergency lane change and back), likely due to higher speed rating
  • Less tire scrubbing
