BFGoodrich® Tires Brings heritage of durability to new fleet truck tire

Greenville, S.C.

For decades, BFGoodrich Tires has developed a reputation for success in the toughest environments on the planet, including the grueling terrain of Baja where it runs the toughest off-road tires in the marketplace. That engineering experience also bleeds over to its full range of light truck tires that now includes the new BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2 tire, designed for small fleets.

The reinforced all-season truck tire is built for improved durability and lower operating costs. To demonstrate its commitment to the fleet business owner, the company is offering a free year of the BFGoodrich Roadside Assistance Program with a set of tires.

The Commercial T/A All-Season 2 touts the latest in commercial grade toughness and CoolWedge™ shoulder insert, which enhances cooling and prolongs tire life. Additionally the tire’s tread compounds are designed for gravel chip and tear resistance. The two steel belt reinforced two-ply carcass provides the durability needed on tough job sites and roads while providing a smooth, quiet ride with all-season confidence.

“There is no question that BFGoodrich is the leader in making tires that can take the punishment that both on road and off road driving can dish out. The history of success in Baja desert racing is just one example of that heritage that includes making industry leading truck tires for small fleets that represent roughly 25 percent of the US Fleet,” said Dan Newsome, BFGoodrich Tires Light Truck marketing manager. “With this new tire our goal is to help small business owners maximize their fleet efficiency. These are businesses that affect our lives daily and include hotels, delivery companies and numerous service industries. With the durability of the new Commercial T/A All Season 2 and the Roadside Assistance Program, owners should find a lower ownership cost and reduced down time.”

The roadside assistance program includes 24 hour coverage for tire replacement and a variety of services covering gasoline, oil, battery, lockout and emergency towing.

The BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2 is available in eight sizes beginning July 1 and two additional sizes on November 1 with speed rating from
