BFGoodrich Radial T/A Tire Review & Rating

With classic good looks and performance to match, the Radial T/A from BFGoodrich has been one of the most popular tires for drivers of muscle cars, street rods, sport trucks and many other vehicles for over 40 years now. Even better is the fact that Goodrich has added new technology to provide enhanced performance.

An all new tread compound has been utilized to go with its symmetrical tread pattern to give the tire better all-season traction and a longer tread life. Added tread block phasing increase the performance as well as provide a quieter ride on the road.

BFGoodrich Radial T/A Tire Review

BFGoodrich’s g-Wedge technology is a new addition to the T/A tire. It incorporates a sidewall stabilizer that is designed to increase lateral stability and steering response. Until now it was a feature found in several of their other higher performance model tires.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts with spirally wrapped nylon that use BFGoodrich’s ETEC system to strengthen the tread at higher speeds. It also provides added durability and increased ride quality. The tire is available in either a black sidewall or with raised white letters.


  • Dry and wet traction is excellent   
  • Above average steering response   
  • Ride quality and tread life are very good   
  • Classic muscle car tire that never seems to get old   


  • Not the best in winter weather conditions   

Overall Thoughts

You can almost say the Radial T/A is kind of like baseball and apple pie in the American tire market; it’s simply a dependable classic that looks good and performs well on any type of vehicle. It’s not a tire that excels in any one particular area, yet its performance is solid in all of the important tire performance areas. There is no glaring weakness with this tread design and overall, we hope this tire is still available another 50 years from now.

  1. I have read on a lot of reviews that the T/A’s are useless in the wet and the iconic white lettering will go brown and hard to keep white. also that sometimes they are made from a cheeper supplier?
