285/60r18 BFG All-Terrain t/a KO2

Just had new 285/60/18 KO2s installed on stock non QL 2012 Laredo X yesterday. No rubbing issues whatsoever even with some light off-road driving, clearing curbs and through 12 inches of snow. Mean stance and super aggressive, feels like it sits a few inches higher. I would attach pictures but I don't have permission to.

Re: 285/60r18 BFG All-Terrain t/a KO2

Greetings,

I have never been a fan of BFG for winter performance. This tire seems to have broken the mold over at BFG in this category for a heavy duty AT tire. I am still interested on how it does with wet heavy deep snow, various ice conditions such as steering, braking and cornering for a non-stud tire. Puzzling, is why did BFG did not add additional siping to the tread block. The should block is definitely a major improvement.

I look forward in some long term results.

Best for now.

No complaints so far, handles very well in rain/snow. It takes some aggressive steering with traction control off to get any wheel spin in slushy conditions.

Re: 285/60r18 BFG All-Terrain t/a KO2

I have used the KO and KO2 now for about 10 years. I have used them in sand, mud, gravel, caliche, ice and just about everything else you encounter in TX and NM. I don't think you can find a better all terrain tire. I average 50k miles on a 3/4 ton with a good payload, and take them off around 5/32nds. The KO2 is a moderate improvement over the KO in winter performance. In fact, I'm installing a set on my WK2 in the morning on Spidermonkey reps.
