BFG K02’s


Recommended Posts

Looking for some input on BFG K02’s on 3/4 ton trucks. Some people say that they are great, some say that they are junk. 
 

I like the aggressive look. 80% of my driving is on paved roads. Some light off-road for hunting. I live in PA, so I see mild snow in the winter. I tow a 7k travel trailer, about 2500 miles a year. 
 

Looking for some real life mileage results.

It’s the only tire I’ve ever used. They were quite, lasted a long time and I never had a flat. That’s saying something since some of my ROW jobs were around Austin. Known for their thorny bushes. I never tried another tire so I can’t compare, I never needed to.

If you tow heavy loads alot they are a bad tire. It's a soft tire that wears out very quickly to half tread and they turn into hockey pucks.

 

But if you only tow a few thousand miles a year they will be okay.

i am running a set. picked them up used with "1000" miles on them, probably actually more like 5000. I have put maybe 3000 more miles on them. they seem to be fine. did fine in the winter snow. 

the one thing they have though, is a right pull. my truck did not pull with stock tires, but sure does have a pull now. the alignment is dead on as well. rotating tires side to side does not help.

Well, we've pulled off three sets at work on HD trucks for vibrations that wouldn't go away.  I don't think I could recommend them.  I have always heard the OG AT KO was a great tire.    

 

I would look at something like the Firestone Destination XT.  Severe snow rated, 50,000mi warranty and they are a full depth sipe tire so even when the tread gets low you still have siping for water evacuation and traction.

Standard equipment on my Ford Raptor.  I've rotated them once, they have 10k on them and look like new.  I like them.  I see tire tests occasionally on the web and they always rate well as an all around good tire.  Maybe not the best for specific needs like rock crawling or mud running but overall a very good tire.  They do well on snow and wet roads which is what I need in the midwest.

I just replaced a set on my sons Tacoma that had 30k on them and had enough tread that I sold them for $400(half original price) on CList. Friend of mine just replaced his from his RAM deisel 8600 pd truck and they were bald at 22k miles. He tows alot so that could be a why he got such low miles, I ended going with Toyo ATIII's since he had low miles and I tow alot too.
