The new g-Force T/A®KDWS sets the all-season benchmark in the ultra-high performance tire market. Remarkable wet/snow traction. Breathtaking dry traction. Longer treadlife and smooth, quiet ride, even at speed.
Outstanding all-season traction and handling in dry, wet and snow conditions from innovative asymmetric tread design.Confident snow traction with low noise from S-shaped variable groove taper that slashes through snow and water.Superb steering response and road feel; exceptional control even at high speeds from center rib with tapered lateral voids.Tremendous cornering force from g-Control™ Sidewall Inserts.Great strength, smooth ride, and maximum tread contact area under high speed conditions from ETEC (Equal TEnsion Containment) System™.Outstanding cornering feel and handling; excellent progressivity and recovery due to shoulder drop to contact width.
These are definitely NOT all season tires, unless your winter excludes snow. I crawled along while everyone went around me. These tires spun on any bit of snow & I was considering staying home for the day rather than risk ditching the car. I have been driving almost 40 years and never been on tires this bad in winter. The rest of the year they are good but not in any snow.

Dry performance excellent--I can regularly pull 0.94-1.01 G's around lightly banked corners before I start to slide.
Wet performance is solid--no problems driving 75+ mph during heavy rain.
The snow and cold is where you have to watch out. This tire has ZERO traction with more than 1/4" of snow on the ground. When temperatures are below 10 degrees, you're unlikely to be able to drive more than 2-3 mph with the back wheels spinning at 30-40 mph.
I can't really review comfort and noise--don't have enough experience with that yet. My car is heavily upgraded and makes a lot of noise, plus the suspension is very, very stiff.
Treadwear is good--I'm at presently at 15,000 miles and I think these tires can probably handle another 5-10k, depending on how hard I drive.
In summary, a good choice--especially if you like the tread pattern. My next set of tires, however, is going to be the Hankook Ventus V12--they supposedly beat this tire in every possible characteristic except dry braking. Same cost, same weight. 20 points lower treadwear rating.

I hate reading reviews. Same tire...opposite opinions. Drives me nuts. Here's my real world review of the BFGoodrich 235/50/18ZR KDWS after three years and 50,000 miles on my 2008 Mustang Bullitt which I bought new. Dry..great. Rain OK but slow down. Snow..Don't know. Am ordering another set. I don't think you can beat 50,000 on a performance tire. Guess there's a reason Ford uses these at their proving track.
