Great tyre in the beginning but got progressively noisier
Went and got a set for a good price matched by Bob Janes. Tyre size was 265/60R18 AT E-rated.
1. Looks good (did not get the white lettering type).
2. Drove over jagged rocky terrain without issues.
3. Great traction. Got out of very sticky situations with no external aids in my 2015 Pajero GLS.
4. Did not need to air down at all entering Goolwa Beach.
5. At 40K kms, with regular rotation they still have plenty of tread left.
6. Have TPMS fitted and it does not lose pressure over time as much as my previous tyres in my previous car.
Purchased in September 2017 at Bob Jane T-Marts for $403.00.
Great bang for your buck
Considering the price I paid,they are a great tire.
Overall decent wear and performance. Not the best tire I've owned but I certainly paid more money for those.
Changed them out @ 70k road noise was just too much. The tire could easily last another 30k but it would be a noisy ride.
Also at the 60k Mark noticed a decline in performance on wet pavement and standing water. Even with heavy loads.
They were being used on a 2500 Ram, loads of towing with a good mix of off-road use.
All in all I think they are good tires with good performance and had no issues with uneven wear or sidewall issues.
Purchased in August 2016 at Costco.
Mileage great but.
These tyres had fantastic mileage 100,000 + kilometres but as they got older the road noise became very noticeable and they were not great in the wet. They are a very capable off-road tyre.
Purchased in September 2017.
Wear extremely well sticks to the road in wet, dry snowy conditions very good wearing tyre on a 4wd Hilux that is used for towing a large trailer all the time.

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.
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.
Great tyre, to be expected for the price.
One of the best tyres I've had.
Sizeable cut in sidewall on a beach at 10'000 km, thanks to the hearty side wall thickness I've now done 95'000k with no need of a spare! It does come at a cost, the ride is VERY firm with such a thick wall.
had to get new tyres
so a friend recommended to buy these. $360 a Tyre sold the old ones for $50 so saved $16 bucks each Tyre on disposal. Going to take them on a big trip soon and see how they go. Like the fact they have a decent wall on them and sure they we'll handle places like the Gibb well
Great All rounder
Have had them only 12 months, they are quieter than I expected considering the aggressive nature of the tread,
Wear appears to be OK and works well in the wet. They do slip a tiny bit in the wet but that could be more attributed to an empty ute with a chip upgrade and a heavy foot...At this stage Yes would buy them again.
Well I did some digging and BF Goodrich recommended that the vehicle manufacturers pressure provided on the placard be used. Well to my surprise that was 29 PSI, a lot lower than expected and silly me I never thought to look at this before. I decided to drop the pressures down to 32 PSI and it's a different vehicle all together. It now sits on the road well and I have grip in the wet. Time will tell if they hold together at this pressure even thought they certainly don't look under inflated. This is vastly different to my last Hi Lux so it does pay to read the placard.
Great in mud
For an AT tires, they've been pretty impressive in wet sticky clay and mud, and virtually all terrain, although I haven't had them in snow for we don't have snow. They are heavy though! They are pretty "numb" to feel but will transmit jolts to the car. So far proven to be quite tough and stick much better that OEM on my truck. Even when down to half inflation, they don't look very aired-down, must have a solid wire skeleton holding up the sidewall structure. No problems on the beach sand either, and as a bonus just a slight hum on the freeway in terms of noise, otherwise pretty quiet, which is atypical of an AT tire.
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 .
