The Commercial T/A Traction is BFGoodrich’s On-/Off-Road Commercial Traction light truck tire developed for pickup, van, SUV and commercial vehicle drivers looking for heavy-duty light truck tires that can combine traction on the highway, as well as at work jobsites and recreation areas. The Commercial T/A Traction is designed to provide on- and off-road traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, including snow.
Commercial T/A Traction radials feature an aggressive symmetric tread design that uses independent shoulder lugs and intermediate tread blocks to blend dry-road handling with poor weather traction. Wide circumferential grooves provide hydroplaning resistance while lateral grooves and multiple sipes provide the biting edges needed to enhance snow traction. The tire’s structure includes twin steel belts to improve bruise and puncture resistance on top of a two-ply polyester cord body that helps absorb road shock to enhance ride quality.
The Commercial T/A Traction meets the tire industry’s severe snow service requirements and is branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
Pinned to accept optional TSMI #16 silver-colored metallic winter studs.
Note: While non-winter tires featuring the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol provide additional longitudinal snow traction beyond what all-season (M+S) tires not bearing the symbol can deliver, they do not match the capability of a true winter tire in all adverse weather conditions.
