BF Goodrich tyres....

What's everyones opinion on BF Goodrich tyres? I know there's heaps of different sizes but the ones I am looking at are 215/65/14 for an EA Falcon... The sales guy talked em up but I want another opinion....

I had a few and the ones from 15 -20 years ago were like driving bald tyres in the wet so they've come a long way since then and now they are a good tyre IMO.

The BFG Profiler G faired quite well in the recent Motor Mag tyre test. Came 3rd from memory.

Thumbs up


They are good for one thing, and that is why they are called

As a minor point I run them on my XE, they are T/A's and they are the only ones I could find in 245/50/14.

I used to run Bridgestone Eagers on the XY, they were a little more expensive than T/As but I'd heard bad things about T/As. One day the front Eagers were getting rather low so I decided (or rather my wallett did) to try some T/As. Big mistake. Nearly crashed the car as I understeered out of the tyre shop driveway in the dry (not going fast or doing anything silly). Decided to give them the benefit of the doubt for a few days but they got no better so I went back to the tyre shop and told him to stick the T/As up his ar*e. he wouldn't refund me because they were now used (already showing signs of wear after only a couple of days) but agreed to do me a discount on a new pair of Eagers.
Saying all this though, that was several years ago and possibly things have changed now.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
