BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT Tire Review & Rating
The BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT is the company’s latest all season touring light truck tire that’s designed to perform at a higher level in a wide range of year-round driving conditions. Built for light trucks, crossovers and SUV’s, the Advantage T/A Sport LT is billed as providing “four seasons of traction”.
BFGoodrich uses an advanced silica-enhanced tread compound, symmetric tread pattern and locking 3D Active siping technology that combines to deliver more grip and traction when traveling on wet pavement or in light snow.
The BFG Sport LT also features the 3-peak mountain/snowflake emblem, meaning it exceeds the industries severe snow service requirements. That’s not something you find on many all-season tires.
Aqua-Flume technology prevents hydroplaning by dispersing excess water from these tires through the unique sweeping cross grooves. Thanks to its symmetrical design and ETEC System technology, which optimizes the tires’ footprint, you’ll find added cornering stability and increased dry/wet handling performance. A continuous center rib further improves road feel and gives the tire a smoother, more responsive ride quality.
As well as having advanced external features that enhance the performance and quality of this tire, the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT has an internal two-ply polyester body casing, g-Wedge sidewall stabilizer and nylon-reinforced steel belts, that add to the durability and stability as well.
BFGoodrich offers a large number of 16 to 20-inch sizes, with either a T, H or V-speed rating available. A 60K or 65K mile tread warranty is also included depending on the speed rating of the tire.

- Hydroplaning resistance
- Fuel efficiency
In most cases, light truck, SUV and crossover drivers have been satisfied with the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT tire, but there are some exceptions.
The first thing most people notice about the Advantage T/A Sport LT is its distinctive appearance. Most drivers either love it or don’t really care for it. We do like the look it delivers here. Performance on dry and wet pavement is very good. It corners and has the type of stability you find among other top tires in this class.
Traction on wet pavement is good, but not great. While it resists hydroplaning quite well, we’ve heard a few drivers mention some wheel spin from a stop on wet streets. On the negative side, a few drivers have stated the tires are not as comfortable or quiet as some of the other higher rated models.
Overall, we feel the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT is a good quality, reliable all-season tire. While perhaps not up to the best in class models like the Michelin Premier LTX, Bridgestone H/L Alenza Plus, Continental LX20 or Pirelli Scorpion Verde AS Plus, we rate this tire in the middle of the class.
