BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2: more versatility, increased performance
BFGoodrich is launching a new tyre directly derived from race proven technologies. Highly ambitious, the K02 is presented as being a very versatile tyre. Not unlike the Michelin CrossClimate, a tyre recently launched by the French group.

Tar, stones, dirt, mud, gravel, snow... the scope of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 is impressive and perfectly in line with how vans and/or all-terrain vehicles may be used.
Longer tread life, increased performance
Developed for the general public, this tyre remains suitable for aggressive on and off road use. Indeed, BFGoodrich claims this tyre is developed for drivers using their vehicle in the toughest conditions whether for leisure or professional activities.
Its longevity is 15 % longer on asphalt, and above all, twice as long on gravel. A result obtained thanks to a rubber that is optimally blended to reduce scuffing and tears on the tread.
Off-road driving enthusiasts will also appreciate the 10 percent more traction in mud and 19 percent more traction in snow.

Engineered from race-proven technology, for more resistance
The KO2 features CoreGard technology tested and proven during the famous Mexican Baja race which is characterised by its rough, demanding layout. This solution significantly improves the tyre’s resistance to splits and snags, particularly in sensitive areas of the tyre (sidewalls and shoulders). Compared to its predecessor, the KO2’s sidewall is 20 percent stronger.
Suitable for snow!
Like the Michelin CrossClimate, this tyre offers a confident drive in summer and also carries the 3PMSF symbol (3 Peak Montain SnowFlake). This acronym is proof of the KO2’s winter capabilities, making it ideal for countries or regions where winter equipment is required.
The KO2 will be available on the market from July 2015 in 7 different sizes:
LT225/75R16 115/112 S
LT245/75R16 120/116 S
