Michelin Rolls Out Two BFGoodrich Brand Tires

July 27, 2007

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Michelin North America Inc. introduced two new BFGoodrich brand tires during a ride-and-drive event near Salt Lake City: the BFG g-Force Super Sport A/S ultra-high performance passenger tire and the BFG Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 light truck tire, according to Modern Tire Dealer magazine. The g-Force Super Sport A/S will be available this October in 29 sizes, ranging from 15 to 20 inches in diameter.

The tire contains compounds for three surface conditions- dry handling, wet handling and snow handling - under the BFG brand's Multi-Grip Tread Technology banner. The compounds "are positioned side-by-side across the gripping surface of the tire," say Michelin officials.

The BFG Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 light truck tire is designed for rock climbing and other rugged applications. Sizes will be rolled out in two phases, the first starting this September and the second in September 2008.

The tire contains BFG's Krawler TEK technology, consisting of aggressive sidewall lugs, cut- and chip-resistant sidewall compounds, and sidewall cords "that are up to 33 percent stronger than the previous Mud-Terrain T/A KM tire. These advancements allow more bite and sidewall protection, along with increased strength and resistance to bruising caused by rocks and rough trails."
