Why is the All-Terrain T/A KO2 the right tire for you?
20% tougher sidewalls featuring race-proven CoreGard™ technology to take on the toughest road hazards with confidence.*
CoreGard™ technology - Tougher sidewall rubber: Split and bruise resistant sidewall rubber, derived from BFGoodrich®'s race-proven Baja T/A® KR2 tire. Thicker, Extended Shoulder Rubber: Increased rubber thickness, extending down the sidewall to protect more of the critical sidewall failure zone. Advanced Deflection Design: Computer-predicted object path design deflects protruding objects from snagging and splitting the sidewall.
Longer treadlife to extend your adventure.**
Advanced Tire Footprint Shape: Results in more evenly distributed stress for longer more uniform wear. Interlocking Tread Design: Provides increased tread block stability for more even wear over the long haul. Stone Ejectors: Reject stone retention and provide extra tread cleanout protection against stone drilling.
Upper Sidewall Traction Bars: Protruding sidewall rubber blocks that provide increased mud, snow and rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations. Mud-Phobic Bars: Raised bars in the shoulder tread area that help to release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy and soft soil conditions. Serrated Shoulder Design: Staggered shoulder blocks that provide greater manoeuvrability in soft soil and deep snow conditions. Locking 3-D Sipes: 3-D active sipe technology that provides more biting edges for significantly increased snow traction. Exceeds Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC) requirements for severe snow traction.
All BFGoodrich® tires have a Standard Manufacturer's Limited Warranty, which covers defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original usable tread, or for 6 years from date of purchase, whichever occurs first.Download PDF Version of Warranty

- * Improvement depends on the size of the tire purchased. 20% improvement based on internal sidewall splitting test results derived from a simulated sidewall aggression testing machine (patent pending US20120245859A1) vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO tire in size LT265/70R17. Actual on-road results may vary.
- **On-road test - Based on internal wear tests versus BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO tire in size LT265/70R17.
- ***Mud traction - Based on internal subjective mud testing versus BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO tire in size LT265/70R17.
- **** Snow - Based on third-party snow traction tests versus BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO tire in size LT265/70R17 using the ASTM F1805 test.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.
WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from improper mounting, from tire failure due to underinflation, overinflation or overloading or from tire damage due to abusive use. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.
DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim, or a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim, or a 18" diameter tire on a 18.5" rim, or a 20" diameter tire on a 20.5" rim.
Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle.
Michelin North America (Canada) Inc. does not endorse the operation of any vehicle in an unsafe or unlawful manner. Exceeding the safe, legal speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.
For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.
For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.
Q-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (km/h) 160
Inflation Increase (psi) 0
