The BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW-2 (KDW
for Key feature: Dry & Wet traction. The “2”
is our addition & identifies that this is the second generation
g-Force T/A KDW) is the Ultra High Performance Summer tire that was
developed to provide a blend of a dramatic-looking, ultra high
performance tread design with superior dry & wet road performance.
The BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW-2 is available in sizes for drivers
of the world's hottest sports cars, coupes, sedans & light trucks.
The g-Force T/A KDW-2 features large
tread blocks to enhance dry road stability, handling & wear under
high torque loads, while rounded shoulder profiles help provide
feedback for the driver by communicating the tire's progressive &
predictable characteristics as they reach their limits of adhesion.
A silica-reinforced tread compound with wide circumferential &
lateral grooves form a directional tread design to speed water
evacuation, improve wet traction & reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. This basic tread design technology is shared with the
g-Force T/A radial racing rain tires used in the Sports Car Club of
America (SCCA) Trans Am Series. Internally, the twin steel belts are
reinforced by BFGoodrich's ETEC (Equal TEnsion Containment) System
which uses spirally wound nylon strips to provide excellent
strength, consistent footprint pressure & maximum contact area
under Y-speed rated conditions while it reduces weight & helps
provide more uniform ride quality. The g-Force T/A KDW-2 tires
feature g-Control sidewall inserts to resist deflection & generate
cornering force while rim protector ribs help protect alloy wheels
from curb damage.
The g-Force T/A KDW-2 tires feature
subtle black letter styling & will initially be available in
selected sizes. Sizes will exp& throughout the year to include
60-, 55-, 50-, 45-, 40-, & 35-series, V- & Z-speed rated sizes
for 17" to 24" wheel diameters.
