Perfect tyre for my pathfinder great price and grip I never had before wet or dry
Grip very well in the wet weather and have very low road noise in both wet and dry conditions. Excellent price for a upgrade all terrain tyre for my vehicle
Purchased in September 2020 for $340.00.

Best going around
Have been running 2 of them on my cruiser for 6 months with the other two being Coopers and they absolutely crap all over the Coopers. I’ve had 3 Punctures in the Coopers and none on the bf’s

BFG KO2's on a 2010 Kia Carnival. With a trip or three to the snow in the past three years.
l put the BFG KO2's on a 2010 Kia Carnival (believe it or not) for the purpose of a trip or three to the snow. l had intended to put the summer tyres back on at some point, but they went to a 'friend in need'. On one particular trip, l drove up the mountain late at night. lt was snowing, and the snow was very fresh and 6 inches deep, on an uncleared and untreated road, (as this was the first snow-fall in three days) and l drove in the deepest snow l could find, outside of the (minimal) tracks. l ploughed on past the active chains fitting statio...n (too k k cold outside for me, and chains aren't my thing) and l didn't have any regrets. They gripped and stopped like glue on the snow (on 36 PSI!). l was having a ball, and l felt like a foolish rebel. By the next afternoon a lot more snow had fallen, so l drove on the slushy and icy parts of the road, with great grip, albeit being that l drove to the conditions (with a few exceptions, in the name of science). They've been 'grippy' on the bitumen, with zero nasty surprises. l don't need to baby it around a round-about in the wet either, (unlike some 'premium' road-biased tyres that l've had). They are mostly used around the burbs and on the "free"-way. l've had one puncture in the last 3 years, and can't seem to wear them out. Obviously they won't perform like a premium sports summer tyre on the road (and all that jazz). l have not put them to the test in a panic braking scenario on the bitumen in wet or dry conditions, and l don't think l'd particularly want to. My rating of the tyres performance in regards to wet and dry weather handling on the black stuff is related to the type of tyre and the presumed intended usage of the tyre by the manufacturer (no track-days, yet!). Overall, l'm pleased as punch.

Good proper tyres
Purchased in March 2019 in preparation for a 4 month trip in North West WA. They never let me down. Traveling over sharp rocks, sand, farm tracks, corrugated gravel, I am glad I had these tyres. Can't vouch for their handling in the wet, as it's been fairly dry. 30000kms in and only slight signs of wear around the edges. Road noise is quiet. Running 265/70/17 gives a good all-round feel. Purchased 5 from Tyroola.

Great all rounder, tough off road
I have had these on my Dmax for 4 years and about 75000km with great results. They hang on well on dry roads and predictably on wet bitumen, certainly better than the original Bridgestone A/Ts and miles better than some Coopers I have owned. Offroad they are excellent, dealing with sand, high country rocks, the Simpson and Cordillo Downs road; no punctures. The downsides are some loss of fuel economy, as expected with a heavier more aggressive tyre, increasing noise with age and some chipping of the tread in the last 5000km. I could get another 5-10k out of them but will swap them to spares. Will buy again.

Low wear, excellent grip, treat them nice and they will last years.
KO2 265/75 R16 on original steel factory rims.
Purchased the day I picked up my new BT50. Now have done 50000 Km with slight wear showing. I expect another 50000 out of them.
Around town in a loaded work ute, great.
Highway speeds fully loaded towing a caravan, great.
Gravel, corrugated dirt tracks, great. With the van, awesome.
Muddy, sandy horrible outback tracks, great. Beach driving excellent with reduced pressure.
My only concerns was in an unloaded ute in heavy rain they can loose grip. If you drive like a professional and read the conditions you can't fault them.
Just manage the pressures and rotate.
Purchased in February 2016.
So glad I switched to these tyres. My parents got 200,000 kilometers out of theirs which is why I decided to try them. They are not noisy on the road and grip really well. I've had them on for nine months now and they get regularly rotated and not even a sign of wear as yet. I'm super happy with them and the price is worth is several times over!

Exceeded my expectations!
Love my set of BF'S! This is my first set and I will be buying the same set when I am due to buy more! I highly recommend to anyone who wants to take any terrain from snow to mud. Theirs a lot more quieter than I thought while out on the highway
If you know the dirt past Lightning Ridge
These tyres are on 2016 BT50. They replaced Goodyear Wranglers. This vehicle spends a lot of time west of Lighting Ridge NSW on ironstone roads. These tyres have outperformed the previous and certainly the Dunlop factory fitted before that..not surprising I know.
I like the tread depth of 10mm..sure others are deeper and will your hands into your pocket have to be but for price and durability I honestly cannot go past these tyres. I particularly like the reinforced side wall. That is very useful on the bolder ridden roads we use. I paid $340 e...
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.
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
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.
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

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.
Great all round tyre
These BFG tyres are great, they have low noise on the highway at 110km/h, The grip on dry sealed road is great, little slippery on wet roads compaired to the original tyres Bridgestone duller HT but far better traction off road with loose steep gravel. Not the best for uphill mud climbs but with lower tyre pressure it seems to do a little better but it comes down to difflocks (not fitted)
The tyre have large lugs on the side wall to help get out of bog holes, these are not a full offroad tyre but as a general all purpose tyre they do extremely well in most situations.
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 .
