BFGoodrich Tires Extends Popular Lines for the Rigorous Demands of Police Vehicles

PR Newswire

GREENVILLE, S.C., Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BFGoodrich® Tires has introduced two of its most popular car and light-truck tire lines in new fitments for the most widely used police-pursuit vehicles. The tires are designed and made in the United States and have been accepted on the U.S. Government's Cooperative Approved Tire List (CATL), which lists tires capable of handling police duties.

BFGoodrich® g-ForceTM COMP-2 A/S

Whether law enforcement agencies are seeking ultra-high-performance or all-season capabilities from the tires on their fleets, the new products from BFGoodrich meet the stringent demands of police duty vehicles in a previously limited marketplace.

The BFGoodrich® Advantage T/A Sport is now available in three CATL-approved sizes common to law enforcement vehicles. This all-season tire has 12 percent better wet braking1, 15 percent better snow traction2, 15 percent better dry handling3 and has 25 percent better tread wear4 than the previous generation.  

The BFGoodrich® g-ForceTM COMP-2 A/S is a CATL-approved ultra-high-performance all-season tire that accelerates faster with the best wet and dry traction vs. leading competitors5. The tire stops up to 15 feet shorter on wet roads and up to five feet shorter on dry roads vs. leading competitors6. Police vehicles will also experience better snow traction compared with leading competitors7.

The BFGoodrich® Advantage T/A and the BFGoodrich® g-ForceTM COMP-2 A/S are available in the following sizes for the most widely used law enforcement vehicles:
