Launched by Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich in 1870, BFGoodrich went on to became one of the world’s largest tire and rubber manufacturing company after its 1986 merger with Uniroyal, which was earlier the United States Rubber Company. As of 1988, the Goodrich Corporation quit the tire business and sold the entire holdings, including the name to Michelin. Today, BFGoodrich is part of the Michelin brand.
The company has a history of innovation. In 1927, when Charles Lindbergh created history by flying nonstop from New York to Paris, he successfully landed in Paris as the first man to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. The tires he used were BFGoodrich Tires. Ten years after that historic event, BFGoodrich scientists discovered a brand new way to produce synthetic rubber, which was used to aid the U.S. in World War II, after the supply of rubber was cut off.
BFGoodrich tires are engineered by people who spend their weekends at track day events and off-roading. These tires are designed to bring out the performance in all vehicles, from city vehicles to off-road and racing vehicles.
