BF Goodrich Tires
BF Goodrich Performance Tires
If your car is high-performance, doesn’t it make sense to have tires that are just as high-performance? The main benefits of performance tires are higher speed capability, improved handling, and maximum dry road grip*. (The negative is lower tread life.) But you need to know that all performance tires aren’t the same, which is why many high-performance car owners own multiple sets of BF Goodrich tires. (They often switch to all-season or winter tires in the fall and winter for improved winter grip.)
Passenger Car / Minivan Tires : Some tire manufacturers call tires rated S or T “performance” tires, but they’re performance in look only. Not feel or grip. Although they offer solid handling and comfort, they aren’t designed to enhance handling, which is what most performance drivers want.
Performance Touring Tires : Tires rated H and V are typically considered “performance touring.” Some manufacturers state that their performance touring tires can be used in all seasons, so be sure to ask your local BFGoodrich Tire dealer for more information.
Ultra-High Performance Sport Tires : Tires rated W, Y and Z, with an aspect ratio of less than 55. Typically designed for larger wheels (16” and above), these tires are made to enhance the handling of the vehicle.
* Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

SAND, SNOW, AND MUD
Deflate your tires a bit to increase your tire footprint for better traction.
Use steady momentum all the way through.
If your wheels start to spin in sand and snow, ease off the gas a little to let the tires slow down and regain traction. In mud maintain some wheel spin to help clear mud from the drive tires.
WHY BUY BFGOODRICH?
ROCKS, LOGS, AND DITCHES
Approach obstacles at an angle, so that only one tire engages, leaving the other three tires on solid ground for traction.
To protect the fragile components on the underside of your vehicle, it’s best to drive over an obstacle by placing one tire on it, then gently driving over it.
Approach the hill straight on, so the weight is distributed equally, providing equal traction to all four tires.
Use as high a gear as the vehicle will handle comfortably on the hill. If the gear is too low, you will spin the tires. If it’s too high, you won’t have enough power.
Always prepare for a failed climb and have an escape plan.
Getting into an accident can be a painful experience. Every year millions of dollars in damage is done by hailstorms in the Calgary area. We want to make the rest of the process to getting back to normal as easy as possible for you.
