BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Tire Review & Rating

With responsive all-season handling and an attractive tread design, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A is engineered to provide a long treadlife and better driving comfort for all types of coupes and sedans.

The tread on the Advantage T/A sports a symmetric non-directional pattern and is formulated with a silica-enhanced tread compound to give the tire improved year round performance. Rigid shoulder blocks increase lateral strength and provide more crisp cornering, while the continuous center rib adds better overall stability and steering response.

Advantage T/A by BFGoodrich Tires

When the road surface is wet, the Advantage T/A uses its g-Grip inter locking sipes to add more bite and more responsive handling. Wide circumferential grooves evacuate more water from under the tread and reduce the risk of hydroplaning, with wet grip being an area that is often mentioned in reviews by other drivers as a real plus.

Inside the tires you will find twin steel belts that are spirally wrapped with BFGoodrich’s unique Equal Tension Containment System. It provides added strength and durability, as well as a better contact patch, for driving at higher speeds. A g-Wedge sidewall stabilizer improves sidewall strength, but not at the expense of ride comfort.

The Advantage T/A comes with a 60,000 or 75,000 mile tread warranty depending on the speed rating of the tire selected.

Pros

  • Dry traction is above average for this tire  
  • Wet surface traction and handling is very good  
  • Ride is smooth and comfortable  
  • Excellent treadwear  

Cons

  • Road noise may be an issue for some as the tire wears  

Overall Thoughts

The Advantage T/A is one of the better touring all-season tires for traction in all-weather conditions, and in providing a smooth comfortable ride. The tire performs well in everyday handling on dry pavement, as well as on wet road surfaces.

Road noise is not bad, but may become a little more pronounced as the tire ages, but it has not been anything unbearable. Treadlife is longer lasting than many in this class, and comes backed for up to 75K miles.

Overall, the BFG Advantage TA delivers good value for the money and performance it provides, making it a nice choice in new all-season tires.

I had these tires for 3 or 4 years and have wore them almost to the tread bar. These were great tires and lasted a long time. Now that they are worn out yes, the noise is insane. Would I buy again? Yes.

Have had these tires for a little over 8 months now and really like them. They look good and have not failed me in wet or snow to this point. No hydroplane issues and good traction on wet streets here in Ohio. Smooth ride on roads that aren’t the smoothest in the country.
No noticeable tread wear, and that comes from someone who hits the accelerator a little harder at times. I know some have said noise can be a problem but I haven’t experienced anything above what you would normally expect. If I had to do it over again I would still buy these tires.
