Rated 5 out of 5 by Lenny2 Great Tire
I have used Michelin MXV4 on my 1982 Volvo GLT which has no winters since new and I never got the mileage out of them because the rubber would disintergrate with age prematurally and the same happened with Pirelli PR6s tires. I then thought... I might be stepping down in the tire world.... and decided to try the B.F.Gooderich g-force Super Sport tires and I have to give B.F.Gooderich a thumbs up! They stand up to ultra violet light excellent....the ride is just as good as the MXV4s and the handling is like the Pirelli PR6 maybe even a bit better. They stay black on the sidewalls a long time reducing substantially the amount of sidewall black dressing that most people use on there tires. If you drive at normal / spirited highway speeds like I do with the odd fast cornering .......and keep the tires inflated at 35PSI consistently.... along with consistent front end alignments...you will get above average to perfect performance with these tires and should have no complaints. I have about 45000kms on these tires at the moment and I would definately buy these tires again! from Toronto, Canada

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stony Does not live up to Goodrich ratings
These tires wore below the wear bar after only 33,000 miles. My fuel mileage dropped > 5%. Handling and winter driving is above average. These tires are also very noisey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Woody4 Not your fathers tire
This tire is about perfect for my driving style. I run fast, cornering requires serious G-loads, and stopping must be hard, fast, and precise. This seems to be a really good fit for my Quattro. Unlike other performance brands in an AS design, this tire doesn't start to let go way before it will, making you think you are crashing so you back off way sooner than needed. This tire hangs in there much longer and when you have exceeded its limits it is not a catastrophic failure and is quite easy to bring things back under control. It's wet traction is amazing, deep water is really good - not as good as an earlier BFG (with a narrower tread), but way better than any other tire I've driven on recently. Snow performance is mixed - dry and crunchy the tire is outstanding, in wetter soft snow I need to slow down a bit - the width of the tread lets me get up on top of it where I loose a bit of traction, really soupy snow and water is much like deep standing water. This is not a snow tire but does a pretty good job. The ride is not as smooth as some but more than acceptable, the noise is barely perceptable through the suspension but really quiet outside. Turn in is quite quick and precise. This is a very predictable tire. I have them on two of my quattro's, a FWD Jetta, and a Corolla. Great performance on all, reasonable wear on all. I've recommended this tire to my neighbor and a friend, both were impressed and replaced them with the same. It's the only tire I've had mounted on my car that will corner to where my CD player will mistrack. This is a great tire at a very good price. If you are looking for a tire that is very very safe under most driving conditions this one is deffinately worth considering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Art3 worst ever tires, must be others rejects
These tires are junk, lastes well less than 30,000 miles and show they are 50,000 mile tires. Now I have to buy new, it will not be BF Goodrich!

Rated 4 out of 5 by G8GT Overall very good
Replaced OE Goodyear Eagle GT's with these. The OE tires were noisy and rough riding. The Goodrich seems to have a little less steering precision, but are a lot quieter and are less prone to hydroplaning. They do ride somewhat better than the Goodyear, and handle about the same. Fuel mileage is not quite as good though.
