Great Tyres well worth the price
Have been wanting these for a while and it was worth the wait, heard nothing but good reviews and i also have had family the use them and have lasted a while, so now my turn.
From when i left the tyre shop i could feel the difference, going over the speed bump it was hardly a rock in the car, steering was very responsive, when i got up to highway speed it did not have the annoying wobble and quiet for the size i got 285/75/16.
I have used them in the rain, does not aquaplane when we hit puddles, good braking no slipping.
in Dirt they are v...
Wait there still going
I love these tyres they look super tough they handle the tough business & they are gonna last me a good 3 years. A little joke there but seriously the life you gonna get out of these tyres are so much better than the competition. They handle great on the road, get you down the beach for a fish or surf & love hitting a challenging 4wd park.
I have been using these on my 100 series for years, best i have done was 100,000km.
Drove from Geelong to Cape York and back, great on the road and fantastic on the Telegraph track.
In mud, sand, rivers and the road the performed fantastic, i highly recommend these tyres
Best Tyre I ever had
I've been using BFG A/T on my 4x4s ( Landcruiser/Hilux) for the last 20 years. I've tried others that were cheaper but in the long run were more expensive/km. I just sold my 2002 cruiser and the the buyer was gobsmacked with how many kms I got ~ 120,000! I do four wheeling occasionally, nothing too heavy so they're fine. When I get a new (used) fourby the first thing I do is replace the tyres with BFG's.
These tires are ok I find they are a little overpriced they last well but do make a good bit of road noise they seem to hum a lot when I am slowing down they do very well on wet pavement which is a plus I can’t have tires that slip and slide on wet pavement that’s dangerous
Only got 40,000kms with my new set of tyres, have a caravan but only done around 15,000kms towing it. Thought I would get more kms than what I got. Now I'm considering another brand. Had Goodrich A/T before on my prado and got nearly 80,0000kms. Not sure why I should consider get these tyres again
Cost and Reliability
I have used BF Goodrich tyres now for the last 4 years and I purchased the All Terrain KO2 of which has been all over Australia on road and Off and sometimes on real challenging tracks. I would like to say these have been the best tyres I have used as I have done 90,000 km with this set and still have probably another 10 - 20,000 km to go with only 1 puncture. The side wall protection has prevented many punctures and this has made my trips cost effective and also time efficient. Highly recommend
All around positive
I like the KO2. Huge traction improvement in the wet compared to the old KOs. I like everything about them from toughness to traction to sidewall puncture resistance & the aggressive look. Why 4 stars? I’ve done 20,000kms and doesn’t look like it’d do more than 40,000. We’ll it doesn’t matter, I’m hoping to change to KM3 once they’re out.
Good all round 4x4 tyre.
Good off tyre with good bitumen manners. Can be slightly noisy on bitumen but not a negative. I love the strong sidewall on these tyres especially when airing down off road. Some people mention bad wet road manners but I drive with confidence in the wet on bitumen roads. A good tyre.
Worst wearing tire I have ever seen. Destroyed the back tires before the standard 5000 mile rotation. Costco sold them to me so I have now buy 4 new tires because I would never put these in again. They are too soft for A truck of that size and I’m not very happy about it.
Awesome All Terrains
Was a little worried that these tyres would be noisy on the bitumen but I can’t believe how quite these tyres are. They can be a little slippery in the wet but that is to be expected with these types of tyres. The grip off-road is perfect for my application.

Best 4wd tyre
I have had Bfgs on my 4wds for over a decade now I absolutely love them! The BFGOODRICH km2s are quite when driving on the road. When going offroad with 10 psi for beach work hill climbs it easily handles the boggy conditions. They also last for many thousands of kilometres.
I've just purchased a new 4WD dual cab ute and had these fitted with a set of mags from new. In the past I've used Hercules, Falken Wildpeak and Mickey Thompson ATZ P3. I've found in the first 2000k's, the BF's are hard. I can feel every little ripple in the road. I've lowered the pressure to 36 PSI and they're still much the same. They're slippery on wet bitumen. Although apart from the Falken's, the others were similar. They've been alright on the beach, same as the others but I haven't got any serious off road opinions yet. I have found them...to lose traction on dirt tracks, but I have a tray back and wasn't carrying a large load. The tread depth is only 10mm compared to 14mm I measured on the Micky's. 40000k's had the Micky's down to 9mm. The Micky's were nosier with a noticeable hum. I'll update with how they wear as it happens. Update. Spent a weekend in the local national park. Greasy and muddy conditions along with steep rocky hills. 30lb pressure and I didn't have any issues with grip. They just kept hanging on. Not serious mud but wet clay. Satisfied so far with the off road stuff. Update. 12 months and 10000k's. 90% unloaded and 10% with 400kg on board. 36lb unloaded and 40-42 loaded. Tread left. 7.5mm At this rate they'll be bald at 40000. Maybe I need more pressure but then they're stiff as a board. They're still slippery on wet roads. I've given them a go at my local beach without letting them down and they performed great. Even in the soft stuff they kept on top with a bit of right boot. Update. Spent a week at Fraser island. The tyres were great. Starting to like them. I measured them again at 20000k. They still measured up at 7.5mm on all 4. Go figure seems they haven't worn at all. Still crap on wet bitumen. Update. 40000k's. 5mm tread left. Maybe get 70k out of them but will be changing them early. Copped a stick through the sidewall just pulling over on a dirt road. Dangerous on wet tar. I have lost steering many times at 36psi.
NOT for wet Road
probably a good tyre for 4x4 but be carefull, in wet Road lateral grip is ZERO absolutely dangerous. Even when I push accel on my 2ton 140 go diesel Ssangyong Kyron ESP lights star to flash because they sleep with so small motor.
Be carefull!!! not for regular use in wet regions
Awesome tyre new design just got better again
Been very happy with these tyres over many different terrains and the new model is even better with new side grip will continue to use these tyres for many more years to come and recommend them to everyone I know with a off road car they wear very well on and off the road
Very comfortable tyres
I bought BFGoodrich tyres at Costco during sale period. I have never used this brand so was a little bit hesitant but decided to have them on my Honda CR-V. On my first drive after having these tyres I had a great smooth and comfort level when driving. I am now happy with these brand and will consider buy them again in the future.

Like the last post-er, I too put these tyres on my new Ranger. Amazing. Put them on just before Christmas, went over to Fraser on boxing day, dropped them to 18psi where they stayed til we came back 30.12.2017 and I gotta say they certainly proved their ability. Mate's Hilux got well-bogged on a long straight section of deep, dry, HOT sand on an inland track, I got buried to my sills in the process of the recovery and I still managed to get both vehicles out! Had these on my old Hilux too, got a nail longer than a credit card within two weeks, ...simple rope plug fix at the servo and good as new. Inlaws still driving that Hilux, same tyres, 3years later! Great long life, relatively low road noise considering the aggressive tread pattern, great on/off road handling in the dry, wet on the road's alright but not as good as the standard highway-tread tyres it came with. Worn Cooper's, Kumho's, Toyo's, Bridgestone's and Hankook's on my 4wd's over the years and I have to say the BFG's have been consistently the best.
Just love them
These tyres are long lasting, have never punctured, handle well, work/grip very well in wet conditions.
I have used them in mud, ice, rain and extreme heat and they are fantastic.
Good tyre but......
Put these tyres on my new Ranger 18mths ago. I have now done 70,000km. I am certain of another 10,000 at least. My only concern is a small split in one of the tyres that has been like that for around 20,000km. It's like the external wall of the tyre has started to seperate and peal like skin that has been sunburnt. It has gotten slightly worse over time but hasn't caused any issues yet.
No warranty on defective tyres
My new k02 tyres split on the side walls and bfgoodrich says it's not there problem. So don't waste your money. I never even had the chance to even take my car off road. You pay the extra money to have a good product well unfortunately that's not the case.
Questions & Answers
What is the method to keep them balanced. They shake like heck after 2/3 thousand miles. Get them force balanced constantly, been dealing with this issue for over a year.
I had 4 bfg ko2 265/75/16 fitted to a new bt50 fitted on new steel rims , haven’t been able to balance from day one , this includes finger balance as well. We have change 2 rims as well as fitted 4 more new ko2’s still got the wobbles at 80ks .
No problem when I put original rims back on .
