BFGoodrich, a subsidiary of Michelin tyres, has unveiled the Trail-Terrain T/A tyres here in Malaysia. Designed specifically for all-wheel drive crossovers, SUVs, and light trucks, BFGoodrich says these are premium “on-road plus” tyres promising superior on-road performance and light off-pavement capabilities.
The new BFGoodrich Trail-Terrain T/A tyres features a Full-Depth 3D Locking Sipes tread design, which provides improved tread block stability for even wear, resulting in longer tread life, while maintaining a quiet and comfortable ride.
The new treads with a serrated shoulder design also promises increased grip in soft-soil traction in light off-pavement situations, while also able to resist chipping and tearing from the rougher gravel terrains. The tyres are rated for a three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) severe snow rating, and promises enhanced grip throughout the full life of the tyre.
Michelin Malaysia Managing Director, Oliver Biggart said, “Due to the pandemic, not only has leisure travel replaced the work commute, but people are increasingly looking to go outdoors, or turning to home improvements and DIY projects. Thus, they need vehicles that are ready for anything.
“The BFGoodrich Trail-Terrain T/A that values the freedom and versatility of All-Wheel-Drive crossovers, SUVs, and light trucks, is therefore the perfect tyre at the perfect time.”
The BFGoodrich Trail-Terrain T/A comes in a total of 41 tyre sizes (23 T-rated, 18 H-rated) covering all key OE fitments for crossovers, SUVs, and light trucks. It’s now available at selected Michelin authorised dealers nationwide, and comes with a six-year manufacturer warranty as standard.
Pricing information hasn’t been provided at the time of writing, but we’ll update as soon as we hear back from BFGoodrich.
