BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour Tire Review & Rating
The all-season BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour combines precision handling and traction with a longer treadlife. Designed for drivers of pickups, crossovers and SUV’s, the Long Trail Tour features some of the latest BFG tire technology for driving on dry, wet and snow covered roads.
The all-season tread compound and symmetrical tread pattern, along with contoured shoulder blocks and a ridged center rib, provide enhanced handling and cornering power, as well as responsive steering. The tire is designed to make you feel more in control regardless of road or weather conditions.
Deeper circumferential grooves and strategic sipes placed around the tread deliver increased traction and grip on wet or snow covered road surfaces. Biting edges in the tread blocks grip packed snow in winter driving conditions.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts and BFGoodrich’s unique Equal Tension Containment System, which reinforces the belts with spirally wrapped nylon for added strength and durability, and a longer treadlife. The two-ply polyester body enhances ride comfort and improves handling. BFG backs up the tire with a 60,000 mile tread guarantee.
- Dry and wet traction and handling are very good
- Steering is responsive and provides excellent feedback
- Cornering is among best in class
- Ride is comfortable
- Ice traction could be just a little better
The Long Trail Tour has its share of pluses and minuses to be sure. It seems to be one of those types of tires that drivers either love or hate.
We like the handling and performance on dry or wet pavement, as well as cornering stability. The steering response is equally as impressive. Traction in lighter amounts of snow is ok for the most part, but deeper snow and ice is another story. It doesn’t deliver the kind of traction you need.
The biggest area of concern is in the area of treadlife. We’ve heard many drivers talking about not getting the miles they expected to get from the tread. However, we’ve also heard others speak highly of treadwear.
Overall, we feel this model is a middle to upper middle of the class performer. While not bad at any one particular thing, it also doesn’t stand out in any one area as well.
