Strength:

Great traction

Weakness:

None

I bought a set of four B.F. Goodrich Touring T/A on my big old 1988 Mercury Station Wagon because it's tread looked more like a snow tire than Michilin, which I had used for years. Immediately the wagon handled like a sports car on all roads. I love the tires so much I bought a set of four for my big 1995 Lincoln Town Car and wife's big 1995 Ford Crown Vic. Stopping on all wet and dry surfaces and starting on wet or snow surfaces is much improved, though no replacement for common sense and slower speeds on ice. Snow tires increase noise, but there is no problem with noise on these. Starting and stopping needs edges at right angles to the direction of travel which these provide. Ridges around the tires like other All Season tires just act like ice skates when stopping. Ice skates stop when edges are turned sideways, like the sideways edges on these treads.

Strength:

None other than price, but you get what you pay for - they sucked in the snow.

Weakness:

Overall poor quality and perfomance.

These tires have been on my Toyota minivan for a little over a year and the tread is so poor, that my every move is amplified - turns, braking, everything. I cannot believe that only after roughly 30,000 miles I have absolutely no tread left on these tires! I am buying new tires this week - Toyo Spectrums - they look awesome and my mechanic gives them rave reviews! Can't wait till I don't have to feel every pebble in the road.

Strength:

Quiet ride. Price. Above average performance for touring tire.

Weakness:

Only 45,000 mile warrantly for tread life

I had difficult time to find "H" rated tire for my Subaru. Sam's had the Goodrich for only $74.00 each. I bought a set of 4 and am pleasantly pleased with my decision. I wanted Dunlops A-2 touring had to order them. Basically, the Touring T/A's provide a good steady ride. It gives good 'road feel' without giving a stiff or harsh ride. I wanted a quiet tire too. These Goodrich tires allow little roadnoise to enter the cabin. Very pleased as the Subaru had "Z" rated tires and were incredibly noisy. Performance, It IS a touring tire, so don't expect NSCAR cornering. But is does provide ample stability and 'griping' when corning or braking. Had a driving rain storm, and tires performed beautifully, Great traction, excellent wet braking and good channeling of water away from treads. For the money, these tires can't be beat. Why spend $125.00 for Michelin when you can half these for almost half the price.

Strength:

Overall good handling. Quite ride. A good touring tire.

Weakness:

Poor treadlife. With almost 40,000km the tires they are due for replacement. Poor cornering with lots of noise.

Very disappointed with these tires, especially related to treadlife. I would have expected the tires to last at least 3-4 spring/summer seasons.... As a touring tire they are okay but don't expect much more from them.

If you are expecting more than just an average ride, look somewhere else. Anyone wanting a performance ride should try the Yokohama AVID's....

Similar Products Used: I had Yokohama AVIDS on my 1987 Grand Am and they stuck to payment in both dry and wet conditions. The T/A's let go early when cornering and they let the whole world know that you are taking a tight corner.

Strength:

good handling at any speed, corners handle great, wear indicators, long life, just now getting ready to replace them.

Weakness:

a few hundred miles before replacement some of the tread cuts started to fall off exposing the outer layer of the internal components. no bubbling however. drove like that for some time and experienced no problems but that was probably just luck.

see above. i am so happy with the performance of these tires that i purchased them to replace the originals

Similar Products Used: compared to other oem tires i have used, this tire far outperforms them. other oem tires had to be replaced within two years. these tires lasted just over 4 years.

Strength:

Long life, good handling, good traction.

Weakness:

some tire noise, not too bad though, turn the CD player up a little.

Very impressed with these tires. Purchased car new in Jan. 97, Car now has
just over seventy thousand miles on it and tires are just now in need of
replacement. I have had no tire related problems at all. I plan on buying
another set of T/A SR4, P195/65R 15's to replace the ones being removed.
What more is there to say!

Strength:

Quite, comfortable ride. Consistent wear with a long tread life.

Weakness:

Hard to find this same tire as a replacement.

Very pleased with these tires. I have over 74,000 miles on the tires and they are just now in need of replacement. Nice, comfortable, quiet ride with no performance complaints in any type of weather. Has proven to be an excellent tire with absolutely no tire related problems. I plan to buy the same tire as a replacement and would recommend the BFGoodrich Touring T/A (SR4) P215/60 R15 to anyone.

Similar Products Used: I have not used other tires in this size/category before, but have had similar luck with a BFGoodrich light truck tire. In the future, I will definitely look for a BFGoodrich before I look for any other tire.
