BF Goodrich tyres are owned by Michelin Tyres . The Top WRC teams like Citoren, Ford and Subaru uses the same brand for the rallies. I have seen the tyres on rental cars i have driven during travel, i haven't thought about the tyres when driving the rentals so haven't noticed any characteristics

Pretty good tyres. But, there are a lot of OLD stock lying around here. So, tread carefully

LIke pointed out earlier BF Goodrich is a subsidiary of Michelin & is active mainly in the American market. Nevertheless, they produce some very good tyres and are officially available in India through Michelin India. So, they should be available at your local Michelin dealer.

P.S. What size/patterns are you looking at?

What do you want to know about BF Goodrich? Just PM RudraSen, he will clarify all you queries. He has the tyres in his Amby.

I've had a personal experience of almost 20,000 kms on BFs. Dude, please stay away from them. They are good for short-bursts, but real pain for long distances.
If you're looking from the racing perspective, they're good. Although one can get a lot better with Yoko's, Goodyear's etc.
