Default BF Goodrich G Force - How good are they?

Since BFG has been officially released in India through Michelin dealership, I am curious to know first hand experiences.

I did not find any reviews using the search button. Has anybody tried them?

1. What size and Price?
2. How is the ride?
3. Most importantly, hows the performance? Road holding and wet weather performance.

Please compare directly to Potenza's, S drives or Michelin PPs.

They are aimed directly at S.drives in most cases. Pretty good tyres, I would say. They have that BFG shoulder which is supposed to reduce road noise as well, with uneven shoulder blocks.

Dear all tyres have pitch variations( and not uneven shoulder blocks) to minimize noise.
But dear performance does not come with silence..

Pretty good tyres actually, wanted to try on a set recently but were not available in the size I wanted so had to fit PP's again. I couldn't wait for them to be shipped down as my existing set was in bad shape & I did not want to risk it.

P.S. You might soon be seeing a review of them on a 'powerful' car soon!

Which are the models launched here? Is it the G-Force sport or the g-force T/A?

What are the sizes available and how are they priced?

I was very much interested in this tire. Ishan showed it and I loved the design. But when we had gone to buy alloys for Dippy's car, I was told that these are suicide tires for city driving.
