1979-2018 Mustang BF Goodrich G-FORCE COMP 2 All Season Tire (17-20″) Review


If you’re the type of Mustang owner that drives
his or her ride year-round and want a tire that can handle the bad weather, but without
sacrificing a ton of performance, the BFG G-Force Comp 2 All Season would certainly
be a worthy addition to your ride. Now, the Comp 2 here will be one of the best
performing ultrahigh performance all-season tires in the category and will be available
in sizes ranging from 17 to 20 inches in diameter and in section widths ranging from 205 to
305 on the big end. Your pricing will vary depending on your sizing
of course but expect to spend between 100 bucks for your smaller stuff all the way down
to the mid $200 price point for some of the bigger sizes. Now, BFG is one of the oldest tire manufacturers
in the world, having been around since the late 1800. So, it’s no surprise they’re a household name
within the category. It’s also the tire of choice for the Ford
Performance Driving School and their prep Mustangs in addition to the mighty Raptors. Now, the G-force name is one that BFG likes
to throw around pretty freely and is attached to a wide variety of tires from their all-season
offerings like we have here of course, all the way down to their R compound race tire
and everything in between. Now, when it comes to all-season tires, BFG
will offer this tire, the Comp 2, in addition to the Super Sport which is gonna be a step
below this tire in regards to all-out performance. Now, going to the numbers, the Comp 2 will
feature a 400 for treadwear which is pretty average for the all-season category along
with the highest grades available for traction and temp with a AA and single A respectively. Now, that treadwear number will help achieve
a best case scenario lifespan of around 50,000 miles here with proper rotation. Now, one thing to keep in mind, however, is
that this is a directional tire. Meaning your rotation will be side limited. However, that will be instrumental in helping
to provide that great grip in both wet and dry conditions in addition to that very high
silica compound that this tire possesses which is instrumental for getting good grip in the
cold weather. Now, there’s also gonna be big-time lateral
voids here in the tread along with some bevelled edges which will help improve your performance
in the snow, but don’t get it twisted here guys, this is not a dedicated snow tire. Now, BFG and other reviewers might say they
perform all right in slight snow, but one shouldn’t try to get through more than a light
dusting or so in your rear-wheel drive Mustang. But, bad weather aside, BFG claims that the
Comp 2 here is their best performing all-season tire to date and even boast that the stopping
power is about 15 feet better on wet roads and about five feet better on dry roads compared
to some other tires in the category. Now, they also claim that using these large
and rigid tread blocks here in the tread pattern will also help increase the contact patch
leading to that really improved performance in optimal conditions. Now, your road noise in my experience is a
bit of a mixed bag with the Comp 2. Initial noise tends to be non-existent, but
with some wear, these things start making a little bit noise, as is the case with some
of our reviewers. And as always guys, I’m gonna strongly recommend
checking out the customer reviews because it’s a better way to get the idea of how this
thing will perform on a Mustang from owners who actually putting into miles with the BFG
in place. Also, keep in mind that you can pair the all-season
BFG up with many of your favorite wheel options here at AM using our prebuilt wheel and tire
packages. Now, if you’re not familiar, we do pair up
most of your favorite wheel designs along with some of your favorite tires, offer them
in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing even if you’re lowered a little
bit, and then we even ship them to your door for free, mounted and balanced and ready to
rock right out of the box. But wrapping things up, the Comp 2 All Season
option from BFG will be a superstar year-round performer on your Mustang no matter what the
climate, and you can grab your set right here americanmuscle.com.

  2. Great tires for year around and they come in sizes for performance wheels (305). Used mine in twenty below temps and they did great. Not great in snow, although I did drive mine 22 miles in 3 inches of snow.

  3. Settling on these to replace my Michelin’s pilot sport a/s. The Michelin’s were great but only lasted 28k miles sadly,and that’s with rotating and balancing every 8k. Hopefully these BF’s will last longer on my BMW coup 328i.

  4. I have a 2018 Challenger Scat Pack coming up on almost a year old with 15,000 miles on Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires. Prob need replacing by this summer. I'm really can't decide between these tires and the Michelin Super Sport A/S. Since my car is a daily driver here in Chicago, I want the availability to have a tire that can handle a light snow, if I have to commute home. On heavy snow days I have a spare Honda CRV I can drive. But I'd like to have the confidence of being out in the winter months and If I'm out for the evening and light snow comes up, I don't have have to to do a white knuckle ride home. What would you recommend. Both tires seam to be in the same category of being high performance and an A/S tire. I don't have the time or extra $$$ to deal with swiping tires in and out in the winter time. I do like the tread pattern on the BFG better, but looks aren't everything 🙂 Thanks.

  5. Wanted to chime in. Wrapped my 17" XXRs with these tires on my lowered 98 Camry in spring 2017. These handled like a dream in the rain. Great grip with limited tracking on the highways. Grips perfectly for spirited driving through the mountain roads, dry or wet. Haven't doubted its grip through the corners. Tread life is excellent as well! Have placed about 16k miles on them and the rear still have half the whiskers on the contact patch…pretty amazing!

  6. I was ta the Ford racing school, and they all recommended the NON a/s version due to the a/s being too soft on the side wall.
