I own a 1989 Honda Accord Sport Coupe with all the sport options including the sport
option rims which take a 195/60R14 tire. I just tried BFG Touring TA H rated tires.
They were bald in 26,000 miles. I was satisfied with the performance in
both dry and wet conditions, and had no problems with the tires at all.
Actually, I thought the BFG's produced a great smooth ride also.
I push my car to it's limits in dry cornering on occasion, but I am aware
of reduced performance in wet conditions, so I take it easy on bad weather
days. Therefore I am mostly interested in Dry conering performance. I read
in Consumer Reports that the BFG Comp TA HR4 was the best for Dry cornering.
Can anybody tell me from experience or otherwise that this is true?
When it became time to put another set on my car I was looking for a tire with
better dry performance than the BFG Touring TA that I had on it last time without
sacrificing any of the wet performance that I was used to with the BFG Touring TA
(no matter how limited that may be). Also important in my decision was how long the
tire would last. My last set of BFG's didn't last very long in my opinion
(only 26,000 miles, but considering how I drive that may not be bad.)
All things considered, I was happy with the BFG's so I choose to go with them again
by putting BFG Comp TA HR4's on my car yesterday.
My choices in the H speed category for the money I wanted to spend, were the
Dunlop D60A2, Yokohama Avid MD-H4, and BFG Comp TA HR4.
Did I make the right choice?
