Description

Get ready for the “toughest all-terrain tire ever” – the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tire. If you like to tear it up off-road, this is the tire for you. Compared to its predecessor, the T/A KO2 delivers twice the treadlife on gravel roads (15% more on paved roads), 10% better traction in mud, and nearly 20% better traction in snow.

  • Sidewalls are 20% tougher than its predecessor’s
  • Improved traction over its predecessor – nearly 20% better in snow, 10% better in mud
  • Coreguard Technology prevents bruises and splits caused by rugged terrain
  • Thicker rubber extends down the tire’s shoulders to protect this critical failure area
  • Advanced deflection design protects against snagging and splitting
  • Specially-formulated tread compound prevents chipping and tearing
  • Advanced footprint shape distributes pressure for long treadlife
  • Stone ejectors kick out rocks to prevent drilling
  • Interlocking tread design helps resist wear by increasing stability
  • Serrated shoulder for improved handling in soft surfaces and deep snow
  • Mud-phobic shoulder bars promote self-cleaning in mud and soft dirt
  • 3D locking sipes increase biting edges, promoting grip in snow
  • Side biter lugs for powerful grip in mud, snow, and rocks – even when aired down
  • Mountain/snowflake symbol – meets performance standards for severe snow conditions

I had these tires on my 2008 Hummer H3 which I mainly use for off-roading Nevada deserts. These tires are very goo and run quiet on pavement. Only grip I have is that they wear out too fast. I got about 18000 miles on them before I had to replace them with off-road Cooper tires with a more aggressive tread.

Worst tires I've ever purchased, they are slicks after 44,000 Km not even legal for the road.  I had them on my 1/2 ton Silverado, always made sure the tire pressure was good and rotation every 8,000 km. Also, went back to KalTire where I purchased them to complain about the excessive wear in the first 20,000 km and was told too bad there is no warranty.  My truck was always parked in the house garage when not in use.

Worst tires I've ever purchased, they are slicks after 44,000 Km not even legal for the road.  I had them on my 1/2 ton Silverado, always made sure the tire pressure was good and rotation every 8,000 km. Also, went back to KalTire where I purchased them to complain about the excessive wear in the first 20,000 km and was told too bad there is no warranty.
