PASSION MEETS PERFORMANCE

BFGOODRICH Tyres

As a maker of superior performance tyres, BFGoodrich is proud to say that they've been passionately performance-driven since the start. From the deserts of Baja to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, their rich heritage of successful performance racing helps ensure that your vehicle is ready for any challenge, at any time.
BFGoodrich has faced much adversity through the years in on-and off-road racing, which has taught them many important lessons about the way tyres perform. Their engineers have applied these learnings to every product in every segment. So no matter what type of driving you’re after, you can be assured that BFGoodrich tyres are up to the task.
HISTORY

Where it all began...

In 1870, Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich founded the first tyre factory in North America, in Akron, Ohio. Even then, performance was already an integral part of the brand’s DNA. This led Charles Cross Goodrich, son of Benjamin, to establish the very first tyre research centre in the United States. As a result, BFGoodrich began to stand out from the competition as early as 1903, when it provided the tyres for the Winton Touring Car, the first car to cross the North American continent from east to west.
BFGoodrich soon identified another means of improving mobility by entering the rapidly expanding industry of aeronautics. This allowed the challenge-oriented brand to push the limits in new ways. The brand was involved in the 75km/h speed record set in 1909, at the first international air race held in Reims, on a Curtiss Aeroplane Corporation plane.
The 1920s presented the chance to conquer a challenge that was once thought unthinkable. In 1927, BFGoodrich provided the tyres for the Spirit of St. Louis, in which Charles Lindbergh made the first nonstop transatlantic flight in history.

BFGoodrich AT TA KO2

BFGOODRICH’S TOUGHEST ALL-TERRAIN TYRE EVER
Our toughest All-Terrain tyre. Ever. The BFGOODRICH All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyre is an On-/Off-Road all-terrain that delivers exceptional toughness, durability and traction for traversing harsh conditions and gives you the confidence to take on the toughest challenges for work or play.

ADVANTAGES

20% Tougher Sidewalls*

The KO2 uses CoreGard technology developed in the Baja T/A KR2 tyre for split and bruise-resistant sidewall rubber and a thicker, extended shoulder to reduce the risk of sidewall damage. Computer modeling was used to predict object paths creating a sidewall design most likely to deflect protruding objects, reducing the chances of splits and snags. The result is a tougher 4×4 tyre allowing you to take on terrain in all conditions.

*Based on internal sidewall splitting test vs BFGOODRICH® All-Terrain T/A KO tyre in size LT265/70R17. Sidewall splitting test results were derived from a simulated sidewall aggression testing machine (patent pending US20120245859A1). All claims based on pre-production tyre testing.

Longer Tread Life On & Off Road*

The KO2 tyre has a new tread design and rubber formulation that helps it last twice as long on gravel and 15 percent longer on asphalt than the previous KO tyre. The tread rubber has been optimally blended to reduce the risk of tread chipping and tearing on gravel. A new footprint shape and interlocking tread design provide more uniform wear when used on road. Special stone ejectors push objects out of the tread to reduce drilling into the tyre.

 

*Off-Road test – Based on commissioned third-party gravel endurance tests vs BFGOODRICH® All-Terrain T/A KO tyre size LT265/70R17. All claims based on pre-production tyre testing.

CHARACTERISTICS

Aggressive All Terrain Traction

The KO2 tyre also has a range of tread features for better mud traction. Side-Biter lugs in the sidewall improve traction in mud and rocks. Raised bars in the shoulder help release compacted mud for better traction in soft soil. 3-D sipes create biting edges for better sand traction.

Side Biter Lugs
Protruding sidewall rubber blocks provide increased mud & rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations.

Mud-Buster Bars
Raised bars in the shoulder help release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy and soft soil conditions.

Serrated Shoulder Design
Staggered shoulder blocks provide greater maneuverability in soft soil and deep snow conditions. Combined with 3-D active sipe technology that provide more biting edges.
