Inherited a set of 305/70/16 on 105 series
had about 10mm tread left .. invoice suggested that they had 32k km on them
found them wanting big time at highway speed the cruiser just never felt comfortable, tried balancing and rotations pressures just hard to drive
in the bush more than a capable tyre solid side wall to be able to run down around 25 psi
had them replaced after 6k (38k)due to tread failure
in a competitive market it has a strong name if you want a muddie to be a muddie you can do a lot worse
would i buy a set ??? no
An awesome mud tyre
These tyres are very quite on the road for a mud tyre and perform great off road. I have used these tyres for a long time and have had no chipping issues. They have good sidewall strength and protection which helps for rocky wheel ruts when 4x4ing in muddy wet conditions.
Had the tyres fitted over 30,000kms ago and they're still going strong, have them rotated at ever service to keep wear even. Car drives beautifully on all terrain and I do a lot of on road driving. Handle well in mud, as you'd expect!! Will definately be using BFGoodrich again.
Great product, still just as good as the KM1's
Got a set of these before heading on my last big offroading trip, was a little disappointed to find out that they had superseded there KM1's with these. A little worried as well as my old tyres had almost 100000kms on them and still performing.
They have done the job stayed inflated and hopefully last the length of the old ones.
They are amazing fwd tyres they are awesome off track and really good on road still. Your car almost feels like it’s driving on air.. the tread is really thick and actually last! Unless you really like to go off-road then you may need to replace a little more often but I love them
Just average and that’s about it
As the title suggests, they are so so if not a little overrated. I generally have got around 100,000 out of my mud tires (rotated every 10,000). Admittedly they’re not to practical for muddy conditions after about 70 - 80,000. I don’t think this set will get past 70,000 at the rate they’re wearing, but are pretty quiet on the road for a muddy. Let’s face it if you are worried about road noise don’t buy mud tires period. Had them on the rocks and they’ve come through pretty well. I honestly think they’re a bit average in genuinely wet muddy conditions. Don’t think I’ll run them again.
Quality mud tyre
If you are looking for a mud tyre I would recommend these, I have now got 50k on these tyres (on and off road) they are still half tread and extremely quite for a mud tyre on the road, with every mud tyre there is some sacrifice to on the road driving but these are by far the best I’ve had.
Great tread pattern for going anywhere!
Great muddies, strong sidewalls but still plentynof flex in the wall. This is my second set, this time in 265/76/16. Had 33/12.5/15 previously and they were great but made for slow going in between awesome 4wding trips. I fitted the 265’s for towing and they suit the car a lot better. I’ll happily buy another set tomorrow.
These are great performers. I have done 120,000kms on current set and they are still road legal.
Never had any issues with on road handling (wet or dry)
Only really got noisy at about 100,000kms
Done the Simpson, Cape York, Flinders Ranges and lots of the Vic High Country.
Tyre pressure and regular rotate and balance are the key.
Looking at all these reviews only seals the deal. I'm buying a new set for my trip to the Kimberly's via the Tanami Track.
Long time user. Harsh terrain tyre with great durability and on road handling.
I replace these every two years due to the nature of my driving. I have always been able to sell the old ones for a great price. I am happy with the cost per year to have no tyre issues on our trips and knowing that with a full size 4wd and an offroad van (also using these tyres) that I am doing the best to protect the performance of the car on the road and off while protecting my family and everyone elses.
Best tyres I've had so far!!
Have had these tyres for nearly 1 year and around 20,000kms.
Best tyres I have owned yet. They are very quiet for mud tyres on the road, and also have very good handling.
They have worked great in rocks, mud and sand off road and would highly recommend them!
Looking forward to seeing how they go in the future.
Great mud tyre
Good tyre on the road for a mud tyre. Not slippery in the wet. Great off-road in rich and mud. Good puncture and tear resistance. Low road noise if rotated correctly. Got good km's out of first set so I bought again.one of the best mud tyres I have used that is still safe on the hard top. Well priced
Good grip, doesn't like hard braking,
Recently I purchased a set of 265/75/16 for my GU. First ting I noticed was the extra tyre flex in corners and the lack of grip when hard braking. But they are a mud tyre so to be expected. 15000kms further on they are wearing well and square. Not as noisy as the old bar pattern but a pleasant surprise on sealed surfaces. I'd be happy to get 60000kms out of them as we drive some terrain in the high country. BFG's have a good and longstanding reputation in the industry for all the right reasons.
Excellent tyres for all conditions. Daily I drive dirt and very poorly surfaced bitumen roads through rainforest and down steep extreme bends. These tyres perform well on mud, dirt, rock, rough roads, and normal roads wet and dry. I have not done a lot of beach sand driving but from one or two excursions they were fine. Not too noisy and this being my second set, I seem to get about 110,000 kms out of them, rotating every 20,000 kms.
Pretty even wearing. As said these are my second set and I can't see why I won't be buying them again. I use the 255/85 16's as I like the extra height but not too wide. I've almost gone to the 285/75's but I'm not convinced that I would be happy and it is an expensive experiment. Army keeps them thin and tall for deep bite in soft terrain. I don't drive hard ( I'm not 19 anymore) but the tyres are constantly driven in extreme varying conditions, floods through to drought. Creek crossing on driveway and road etc. very stable sure footed tyre. Perfect all round 4x4 tyre that actually drives on many surfaces in extreme weather conditions as part of normal living.
Good Milage. Tough Tyres
Fitted these are getting over 100000Kms off the old pattern. Really good tyre. Size 32x11.5x15 Superior performance. Great traction. Puncture resistant. Sold the car with these tyres still fitted and had done over 70000kms with them and still had lots of life left in them. Cannot recommend them enough. .
Very tough and loads of grip.
I've been off road three times and I have nothing but good words to say. Very impressed.
I like to push my hilux to the limit and these boots get you to the other side with amazing ability. I do mostly forest tracks on 20PSI.
I have a set of michelin road tyres for city driving and they are far superior to these for road manners but hey, that's not what I'm after with these KM2 boots.
Word of warning, I've heard the genuine 'made in USA' ones are the only real deal. Apparently there are some cheaper versions floating about that are not as well made. it could be a rumour.
hard reliable tires
Got recommended the brand from a friend that tried a few other brands , really happy with performance and wear , great in all conditions , of course you can scrape any tire on a sharp rock just watch the road ahead and avoid if possible . Used on my Toyota Hilux and happy with them ill defineatly buy again same when I'm due
The Truth About BF Goodrich
Firstly I do not represent this brand in anyway.
Regardless of weather we're talking mud or all terrain these tyres are tough and hardy as any. I run and rotate 5 33" BF muddies and they are tough and trustworthy on all terrain. I live in cape York and use my car for dirt, mud, sand, creeks, dirt and even a bit of overlanding. I've run bfs on my hilux, an old 200 series, our old 80 and have never had a fairy fart of a problem. Bogged to the axles? Run them right down to 8-10 psi and with a shovel and half a brain you'll be right. Any bad press about these tyres will only be due to driver error eg (running the wrong pressures etc).
If there is one downside to my BF's (and any Mud Terrain tyres in general) road noise and tread wear can be a nuisance compared to All terrains. And obviously with the added road drag due to more aggressive tread patterns you'll be using a little extra fuel per 100/kms so be prepared for that when tossing up options.
Happy touring and shop around! Stick to the main brands, USA isn't always the way!!!!!!
Poor sidewall construction
I put BFG KM2 and done 120klms and first time off road one tyre scraped trough the side walls in the rocks and the other side front blew out with with huge bubbles and rendered the tyre useless. I don't think I would bother spending the extra money you pay for these again for so called quality
Toughest 4wd tyre ever!!
I drive a 2012 4.5 Ltr V8 Turbo Diesel Landcruiser Troopy (78 series 11 seater). This car is unstoppable with these tyres! I've had these tyres for 4 years and they've just completed 100,000 kms and they still have about 3ml of tread left. I've driven all over Australia (Flinders Ranges, Vic High Country, Pilbara, Kimberley, Cape York Tele Track, Crab Track Qld, the deserts, beaches etc etc) on all kinds of roads and tracks. They have never let me down, not once! In Western Australia they were on 25psi for 2 months (seriously) and not a problem. They are awesome on low psi. Not one puncture!! No side wall slashes. They are even good on the bitumen. I don't think they are noisey and I don't care! They do their job and are a badass set of tyres. They are starting to slip a bit but that's expected after 100,000kms, haha. So I have to buy a new set now and I will not hesitate to buy them again. Thank you BF muddies for backing up my photography and 4wding adventures. P.s - I've heard a lot of negative stories about Cooper and Mickey T tyres getting side wall slashes and punctures but I haven't heard any bad stories about the BF muddies from any other drivers, on my travels.
