Notable Features

BFGoodrich g-Force Winter 2 is a directional studless winter tire designed to be fitted on passenger cars. Released in 2016, this model is characterized by high slush and hydroplaning resistance, and, as a consequence, ensures dependable grip both on wet pavement and snow-covered roads.

The BFGoodrich g-Force Winter 2 tire model extended the range of this Michelin subsidiary on the threshold of the winter season 2016/2017. Compared to the previous-generation tire g-Force Winter, the second edition of this model features more aggressive tread pattern and is characterized by better traction on wet pavement and winter surfaces. According to the European tire label, the gForce Winter 2 wet traction refers to Class B. BFGoodrich g-Force Winter 2 The improvement in the performance of BFGoodrich g-Force Winter 2 is largely due to the optimization of the V-shaped directional tread design. The continuous central stiffening rib featured by the g-Force Winter gave way to a surface cut by cross grooves, due to which the spectral section of the tread got a maximum number of sharp cutting edges that improved the vehicle’s road holding ability on snow. Straight grooves In addition, these grooves, running from the center of the tread to the shoulder areas, ensure quick evacuation of water and slush, which increases the tire’s slush and hydroplaning resistance.

Due to a closer pattern of diminished lamella blocks, the engineers were able to increase their number by 40%, which improved the g-Force Winter 2 acceleration and braking performance. Increased by 12%, the number of 3D sipes on the surface of the tread blocks created extra biting edges that increase traction during acceleration or emergency braking. The blocks on the shoulder area got a split configuration. They were further strengthened in order to enhance the driving stability and keep the car from going into a skid. Shoulder areas For better braking performance and optimum handling response, the BFGoodrich engineers equipped the g-Force Winter 2 tire with two types of lamellas: directional ones in the central section of the tread, and zigzagging ones in the shoulder areas.

In addition to silica, the innovative rubber compound, named Helio Compound 3G, includes rapeseed oil, which helps the tire to keep up its performance at low temperatures, as well as extends tread life. Oh, by the way, did you know that pure rapeseed oil freezes at minus 19°C?

The beautiful contrastive labeling on the BFGoodrich g-Force Winter 2 sidewalls is quite a looker. It will be definitely appreciated by those car owners who always want to highlight the attractive visual appearance of their vehicle.

The BFG g-Force Winter 2 tire model is the full analog of the Kleber Krisalp HP3, produced by another subsidiary of the famous French tire maker.

Great tire, the car runs like rails even on wet surfaces. I have already travelled 6,000 kilometers, no signs of wear. The tires are quiet and absorb unevenness well.

These are my second tires from this manufacturer, the tires perform very well on both wet and dry surfaces, and are very quiet and durable. Sensational value for money compared to other manufacturers. I can't judge about winter capabilities because of the warm winter this year. With full responsibility, I recommend these tires to every user, both for those who use the car on a daily basis and for those who use the car for profit, like me.
