BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW NT Tire Review & Rating

One look at the second generation BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2 and you will immediately notice that this isn’t just another ordinary high performance summer driving tire. Designed for owners of performance sports cars, coupes, sedans and even light trucks, the KDW NT sports a cutting edge tread design to with the latest in tire technology.

Dry traction and grip in the corners is enhanced through larger tread blocks and the racing inspired unidirectional tread design. Rounded shoulders and Goodrich’s”g-Control”  sidewall inserts provide added stiffness to improve cornering power.

BFGoodrich T/A KDW NT Tire Review

When the road surface becomes wet, the KDW utilizesits silica reinforced tread compound, deep circumferential grooves and lateral grooves to expel more water from under the tire and increase hydroplane resistance. Please note that this is a summer tire and should not be driven in winter weather conditions.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts and BFG’s exclusive Equal Tension Containment System, which uses spirally wrapped strips of nylon to provide added strength, stability and better overall contact with the pavement at higher speeds. It also improves riding comfortand treadlife. Finally, there is a rim protector built-in to aid in preventing curb damage to your custom alloy wheels.


  • Dry and wet handling and stability are exceptional   
  • Grips the corners like glue   
  • Excellent steering response   
  • Treadlife is better than most in this class   


  • Not the quietest tire   

Overall Thoughts

This second generation KDW is a pleasant surprise in how stable it is along with the way it grips the corners. You can’t help but have fun driving on it, and the tread design is a head turner to be sure.

Steering response is precise and traction on wet surfaces is not a problem for this model. The trade off is a tire that has a bit more road noise and doesn’t ride like a touring tire, but you can expect that from nearly any ultra-high performance summer tire.

Overall, we really like this tire and rank it in the upper half of its class.
