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.

Pros

  • Wet and dry grip, traction, braking and handling
  • Cornering in dry and wet conditions
  • Hydroplaning resistance

Cons

  • Comfort
  • Noise
  • Fuel efficiency

Overall Thoughts

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.

  1. In my youth 40 yrs ago prior to my corporate career I always had BF Goodrich T/A radial 60’s on my Camaro’s, they were great no matter the weather. My company cars came with and the company paid for top of the line Michelins. Now I am semi retired and two yrs ago I bought a new 2018 Kia Optima EX. In Fall 2019 I finally went back to Goodrich and purchased 4 BFGoodrich Advantage T/A’s to replace the dealer tires. My research indicated this was a great tire and had them installed for around $695. Around Oct 2019 we had some light snow and these tires worked perfectly. Also I love the tread design as it looks very aggressive on the car. Unfortunately, after that first snow here in South PA all we had was rain. Got to say it worked flawlessly, no hydroplaning, no skipping tires, and around bends handling was sure. Fast forward past the idiocy of the shutdown when we drove this summer to Georgia a 12 hour trip with periods of sun, rain, and drizzle. My wife and I took turns and she loved the tires. She said she felt comfortable and safe, again no hyroplaning, no skipping tires, and at 60-70 miles an hour they worked great. At this point we’ve placed about 15,000 miles on them and they still perform great. I am not sure why people complain about road noise. I still have excellent hearing and these tires do not pose a problem, realistically its a car you’re gonna have some road noise. Fuel efficiency my Kia gets anywhere from 35-49 mpg on highway, if I lose 1mpg so what. I am glad to be back to BF Goodrich tires, happy I don’t have to pay through the nose for Michelins, and glad I have a great alternative to the cheap Hankooks the dealer places on these cars. Can’t wait to drive in 4″ of snow to see how they handle.

  2. I BOUGHT THESE TIRES FROM NTB {MERCHANTS TIRE 8930 CENTERVILE ROAD , MANASSAS VA 20110} I TOOK THE SUV TO HONDA DEALERSHIP FOR NOISE. THEY SAID IT WAS TIRES ARE CUPPING. I TOOK IT TO NTB TIRES AND THEY SAID I HAVE TO BUY NEW TIRE AS IT IS NOT A WARRANTY, THE WARRANTY IS COVERED FOR ROAD HAZARDS ONLY.THE CRV DOES NOT HAVE A SMOOTH RIDE AND MAKES CUPPING NOISE, THE TIRES KEEP ON LOOSING PRESSURE AND THE LIGHTS COME ON I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TO DO . I HAVE PUT APP 15000 MILES ON IT AND TIRE LIFE IS 65000 MILES. I NEED HELP

  3. After much research I purchased these tires for my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee to replace OEM Michelin. In comparison, these are as quiet, much better in the rain and superior in any snow. Great tire for the price and value!

  4. I was looking at the BF Goodrich T/A sport versus the Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus. I have a 2017 Ram 1500 Sport that has been modified by the dealer to run 619hp with stock suspension. So it is a street truck and I want a sport tire with all season capabilities since we do get snow and rain on our many hills here in Pennsylvania. My stock Goodyear wranglers are already toast at 19k miles. Which tire of the 2 I am looking at would be best?

  5. As far as your comparison to Michelin Premier and Bridgestone Alenza… I have to disagree. According to tirerack.com the BFGoodrich Advantage TA Sport LT outranks both of them. Where exactly do you get your data?

    1. Hi Tyer,

      Why exactly do you think the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT outranks Michelin Premier LTX, Bridgestone H/L Alenza Plus, Continental LX20 or Pirelli Scorpion Verde AS Plus?

      We gather our data through a variety of resources including customer reviews and self-testing.

  6. I WANT TO GET THE MICHELIN DEFENDER T+H TIRE FOR MY 2014 HONDA CRV BUT THE SALES GUY SAID THE BF GOODRICH ADVANTAGE T/A LT WAS JUST AS GOOD OR EVEN A BETTER TIRE ON SALE AT LOWER PRICE. I ASKED 3 TIRES ABOUT RIDE NOISE BECAUSE OF THE TREAD PATTERN .HE SAID AND YOUR ADD AT FIRST SAID SMOOTH RIDE QUIET RIDE THEN DOWN LOWER IT SAID CONS COMFORT AND NOISE. ARE THESE TIRES NOISY AND LESS COMFORT??????

    1. I had the Defender on my civic now have the bfg’s. They have a decent ride but not nearly as quiet or as smooth as the defender. Handling is pretty close on both as I had the h rated 205/55/16 size. I would of got defenders again but car has 189k on it. The defenders lasted 80k miles. Gas mileage also lower with these aggressive bfg’s

      1. Hello,

        Thanks for having BFGoodrich on your car. You need to understand that these are sports performance
        tires. Therefore, fuel efficiency is not their top priority.

      3. Thank you for sharing your experience. The Defender excels when it comes to delivering a noise-free and comfortable ride. BFG, on the other hand, promises better cornering in dry and wet conditions.
