Maybe Rudra should post a ride review.

Is this the old pattern which has made into the indian market, because the new pattern on the G Force is total drool.

Ishan, waiting for your feedback.

I am curious to know more about these tyres. Are they positioned only as performance tyres? How do they compare to Michelin PP2's which seem to be a favorite with us?

Ride quality is pardonable, in the holy book of performance on dry and wet.

Yes these should atleast be comparable to PP2 if not better them. Being on the cheaper side I would say that these would be more comparable to Potenza's

Yes suicide was referred to the ride quality. This tire has a good grip but very bumpy. And very noisy as well. Tire Rack says its a Ultra Performance Tire. lol. And also has mixed reviews. Tire Rack - BFG G-Force Sport

The pattern is very nice.

PP2s are not in the same league. You'd do better to compare these to the S.drives. All Michelins come into their own in the wet. Have seen PP2s being pushed in blinding rain at 100 plus and not aquaplaning.

Potenza GIIIs are among the worst 'performance' tyres ever.

Only G-Force Sport has been launched. Sizes available are:

185/60 R14
195/60 R14
195/60 R15
205/50 R15
205/60 R15
225/60 R15
225/50 R15

Also available are BF Goodrich SUV tyres. Also, they are priced cheaper than Michelin to compete directly with Yokohama in India.

I would doubt his word F50 but let's see a car is getting these on very soon & we shall hear directly from the horse's mouth.

If you're talking about the KDW, that's not available in 14/15". This is indeed the latest offering from BFG in the sizes that we use in our market.

They're positioned below the PP/PP2's Rush & are priced much cheaper too. But yes they are indeed performance centric & are as good as the S-Drives. PP2's are still the best performance tyres available in our market today apart from the Neova's which are now available (in limited sizes) but are priced even above the PP2's.

Can't be worse than the GIII.

Yes, Vid this is the tyre and MXV8 in 195/60 R15 should be around 4.2-4.4k

That clears up most of the doubts. Pretty sad that its not the new pattern thats available in 14 or 15. Saw the new pattern in some shows of Overhauling, looks very nice and upto the job.

This pattern looks nice too. Must be a far cry from the bridgestones.

How will the sidewall stiffness be? Will it be able to compensate for a higher profile?

Akshay stick to 225's MXV8's for the Innova! Best choice for comfort which you crave due to your old age & weak back!!

Baleno, 195/60R14.

I want to know if it will compare to a lower profile tyre due to higher sidwall stiffness.

I'll post my experience later. Tyres don't make any unwanted noise and they're not bumpy..

Running on steel disk here..
