Default BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KD

So BFGoodrich cancelled this tire! I heard a lot of good things about it, anyone know if there are any plans to bring something back in its place. Just concerned for when I need to replace the 315's on my car.

Well funny thing about these tires is that I ordered them off of tire rack. Only to get a receipt that said I ordered 2 right ones. In the end had to call them and got a guy who told me they were discontinued but more rights were made because "..if someone were to get a flat it would most likely be on the right side of the vehicle.." Straight from Tire Rack... Haha WHAT?

I was planning on getting these tires when my stock ones wore out so this is a little disappointing.

Maybe they will come out with something better.

KDW's suck, my KD's were awesome, great tire. I was actually planning on another set for the new car, oh well.

****. I was hoping to buy those once I got wheels in the summer. I want to cry now. They are literally the best street tires out there for many reasons.

probably from running into curbs, pinching the sidewall, or hitting sewer drains.
