Mud Terrain tyres. Were originally made to provide the vehicle with traction.Therefore, that could go anywhere. They were developed to give the 4X4 driver.Excellent durability. Whilst also giving good wear and traction in any weather.Hence, that the vehicle could come up across.Including heavy snow falls.Mud tyres, wear technically designed with the help of racing tyres.As a result and were derived from a “cut-chip and tear-resistant tread compound”. This would give the tyres tread exceptional grip.Also and wear resistance when driving on roads that would normally tear tyres to shreds, such as gravel roads.

The compound on these  tyres. Are therefore generated from computers.Hence, to provide the tyres with tread patterns.Also, with high-void all-terrain pattern.Thus, with interlocking   tread blocks. This is also backed by placing the sipes. Consequently, in a way that rejects and throws out pieces of grit and gravel. At one time tyres with many sipes would also be noisy. As a result, when driving on normal tarmac roads. The Mud Terrain tyres, with all their siping can now run much quieter, on normal tarmac roads, due to the computer design.

B F Goodrich tyre recall does not affect the UK just the USA

B F Goodrich

Michelin is recalling around 104,000, BF Goodrich tyres used for light trucks and recreational vehicles in the USA because the sidewalls can rupture under severe use conditions.

Michelin tyres bought out the BF Goodrich tyre brand a few years ago now. The brand are famous for their on/off road tyres here in the UK.

Originally we were BF Goodrich dealers for the Halifax area of the UK. It looked to me though as if Michelin channeled the  Goodrich brand through its own dealer network and we then moved on to the General 4X4 tyre brand.

The tyre problem that has occurred in the States, is a side-wall problem?

The side-walls of some SUV vehicles and light trucks, have been blowing out when put under extreme operating conditions. The tyres in question were made in 2014 and 2015 and were made for vehicles that are likely to be going off road and on rough terrain.

The B F Goodrich tyre maker says no injuries or deaths have been tied to the problem.

Although there has not been any injuries or deaths from the blowouts, Michelin thought that it was the right thing to do, by replacing the tyres free of charge and sending letters out to the tyre buyers. This is not the first tyre company to make such a move? a few years ago Firestone had a similar problem with the tyres blowing out in the tread area, mostly on Ford vehicles.

As i have stated this only affects the USA and not tyres in the UK.

Off-road driving is no doubt a very popular pastime, even here in the UK. Special courses and events take place for an everyday adventurer?

B F Goodrich has always endevoured to put all their expertise and knowledge  building an off road tyre product that could compete in the trails of the world’s biggest cross country rallies and satisfy the passions of the amateur drivers and experienced professionals, who know that they can  trust B F Goodrich to overcome all off road obstacles.
whether on the tarmac or off the beaten track, on rocky or muddy roads, on sand dunes and on snow: B F Goodrich 4×4 tyres allow you to wonder off on to all types of terrain, and give you unlimited driving pleasure, well worth having on your 4X4 vehicle.
