BFGoodrich G-Force Winter features
BF Goodrich G-Force Winter is a medium-class tyre. It ensures safe and comfortable driving in all winter conditions. Thanks to the special system of grooves, BF Goodrich G-Force Winter is doing particularly well on wet and snowy roads. In addition, the tyre is tough, which ensures long mileage. BF Goodrich G-Force Winter is a successor of BF Goodrich Winter G.
The designers decided to make some fundamental changes in the tread design of BF Goodrich G-Force Winter:
Increased surface area of the tire footprint
This provided even tread wear and better grip on road, even on an uneven surface. Good contact with the road also ensures precise handling and stable driving.
The number of sipes in the tread surface was increased by as much as a half compared to the previous model. The incisions are of two-way design – the sipes change their properties while driving. They are flexible when a car starts, but when it breaks or starts suddenly, they dig into the ground. This ensures a faster response to steering movements and shorter braking distances. The sipes also improve traction in bends.
Safety on wet surfaces
BF Goodrich G-Force Winter works well also on a wet road. For this purpose, wide grooves and notches are made on the shoulders. They are shaped as a funnel that extends toward the shoulder. This sculpture provides 30% better drainage of water and snow compared to the fixed width channels. Thanks to that, water and slush are effectively removed from under the tyres, which lowers the risk of aqua and slushplaning.
For the production of BF Goodrich G-Force Winter tyres, the manufacturer used extra durable rubber mixture, which does not lose its properties even in low temperatures.
