BFG T/A KO2 All Terrain

BFG has just launched the redesign of their T/A KO. We had a chance to run the new BFG T/A KO2 for over 350 miles in Baja Mexico earlier this week. Before we tell you what we thought we'd love to hear what your initial thoughts are.

Here's a quick pic from our ride (more to follow) and a video that was posted on BFG's YouTube Channel.

If they took the other 2/3rds of that 1970s tread pattern and changed it, this would have been a great tire. As it is, all those outer blocks will do is create even more noise. Such a shame.

I'd run em. Always been a fan and was very impressed with this tire when I ran them.

I was interested until I learned that no 15-inch sizes are going to be available. Guess I'll be calling someone else. Jerry

Nice! Looks quite road capable compared to some of the other AT tires in the market!

Looking forward to the 34x10.50x17 listed on the BFG website.
But pricey at $367.00 each!!

This thread cracks me up. Over on Race Dezert where people actually do race in the desert there is a lot of interest in these tires. Love the JF know it alls.

Here's a writeup on the BFG junket in Baja that OP was talking about: http://www.off-road.com/trucks-4x4/r...65.html?page=2. It's obviously advertising, but looks like some people had some fun.

Looks interesting, I will be keeping a eye out for sizes and the prices on these. I have never had a problem with BFG All-Terrain T/A's and I also know a lot of people who use them on pulling trucks, daily driven 3/4 tons and jeeps. The BFG All-Terrain is kinda like the go to tire from where I grew up in the midwest.

Funny thing is that of the different Jeep or wheeling sites I frequent, this is the only one that has such a vocal hatred of BFG tires. I mean these thing are truly loathed by some here yet that sentiment is not mirrored on any other site I go to.

I'll have to head over to Race Dezert and see what is being said there.

Thanks!

JF doesnt know all, JF is just tired of everyone and im not speaking for everyone but a vast majority of them- are just tired of everyone making the BFG AT the end all be all of all-terrains. ITS NOT. it never will be, it had its run and now the tire market is flooded with better and less expensive tire options that are better than the BFG. do i have first hand experience with bfg ats? yes. did i put them through their paces? yes. will i ever buy again? no damn way.

youre talking about desert racing and youre posting from NY... im posting from baltimore, do i care about desert performance in a tire? no. i care about the day to day, daily driving, weekend warrior flexibility of a tire- which the BFG does none of for me and again, a vast majority of people on JF.

see above... what other jeep sites are you frequenting in? i mean hell, take a trip over to expedition portal? theyre not really welcomed with open arms over there... why? cause theres tons of options for ATs now that again are a better tire and half the cost. and i just throw that website out there because theres a wide array of vehicles over there that do offroad in all conditions... desert included

i mean seriously, what did BFG really do with the KO2? really... arrange a tired tread pattern that ran vertically in a horizontal configuration and toughen up the sidewalls to look more like a MT style tire?

im sure im coming off as a ******, but hey whatever. eeveryones entitled to their opinions- and apparently BFG has a brainwashing advertising campaign.

Yes, actually. Airplanes work well for getting from NY to races. Here's a couple shots of me from February for example (running the new Falken MTs!):




I haven't seen any discussion here about change in compound. Or are tires just about what they look like in a picture?
