The Long Trail T/A Tour is BFGoodrich’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tire developed for crossover and sport utility vehicle drivers looking for tires that can enhance precision on the road in all seasons without sacrificing comfort and wear life. The Long Trail T/A Tour is designed to deliver mile after mile in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow.
The Long Trail T/A Tour molds an all-season rubber compound into a symmetric tread pattern that features independent shoulder blocks, notched intermediate ribs and a rigid center rib to provide crisp handling, precise cornering and positive on-center feel at highway speeds. Strategic siping in all of the tread blocks increases the biting edges needed for foul weather traction by enhancing grip in the rain and snow. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by BFGoodrich’s Equal Tension Containment (ETEC) System of spirally wrapped nylon to help the tire retain its shape at highway speeds for a controlled ride and enhanced durability while a two-ply polyester casing helps soak up road shock and resist sidewall flex.
