New-Generation T/A KO2 Doubles Gravel Tread Life
BFGoodrich® Tires, the company that created the first all- terrain tire in 1976, is set to launch its most advanced light truck tire ever this fall with the new All-Terrain T/A® KO2 tire.
Engineered from BFGoodrich’s championship off-road motorsports racing technology, the KO2 delivers exceptional toughness, durability and traction for traversing harsh conditions, including gravel, dirt, rock, mud and snow.
The new KO2 will give consumers the confidence to take on the toughest challenges for work or play.
The BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO2 tire is the first consumer tire to incorporate the company’s race-proven and race-winning CoreGard™ technology that gives it unmatched toughness against sidewall splitting.
Compared to the already formidable current KO tire, the new KO2 is 20 percent stronger in this critical off-road performance area1.
The rugged KO2 is also durable, lasting twice as long on gravel roads and 15 percent longer on asphalt2, allowing off-road enthusiasts to extend their adventures and working professionals to get more use out of the tire.
In addition, the KO2 improves its already legendary tradition of all-terrain performance with 10 percent greater traction in the mud3 and 19 percent greater traction in the snow4 compared to the previous-generation KO tire.
The KO2 is an all-season tire that will carry the 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol, indicating that it exceeds the Rubber Manufacturer Association’s severe snow traction requirements.
Building on BFG’s long heritage as an innovative all-terrain tiremaker, the KO2 incorporates technology developed and tested through the brand’s legendary off-road motorsports teams that have earned 80 off-road wins at races in the Baja peninsula – by far the most of any other tire brand.
