5.0 Awesome tires

Best tires on the market, been using them exclusively for the last 6 years on the dirt roads of Pennsylvania , if your truck doesn’t leave blacktop these tires and that beard aren’t for you

5.0 They are a tough tire and no flats

I just finished a 13,000 mile trip from the middle of Alaska to the southern tip of texas with many side trips in between and the tires worked great my pickup has a camper on it so the tires were loaded. I just bought another set of K02's to head back to Alaska. Up in Alaska my son needed new tires and guess what I bought another set of K02's for his F150.

5.0 Low Noise, great traction, good looking tire

I just ordered my second set of these tires. I got 58,000 miles out of the first set and I love them. Great traction and pretty quiet. Now that they are getting pretty thin on tread, they make a little more noise. I expected that though I could probably get another 10,000 miles out of them, but I take my boys skiing so I want to have a fresh set for the winter.

5.0 More quiet than anticipated

I like the tire's ride and performance, although I've only experienced dry pavement and gravel so far. Even at greater inflation than my previous tires, they have a comfortable, slightly cushioned feel that dampens pavement irregularities I used to feel. They are also quieter than I expected. I'm entirely pleased so far - waiting for the snow to fall. They also seem to shed gravel pretty well before I reach pavement unlike my previous tires.

5.0 Great Tires

I have these tires on my FJ Cruiser and they are great. Traction is amazing and the ride can't be beat. Best tires I have ever owned.

5.0 KO2’s are absolutely the best all round tire!

Love the KO2, I run them on my 2015 Rubicon. I started with 35’s and went through 2 sets of 5, (I rotate the spare too) each set got me up to 80k! I’ve run about every trail there is in Eastern Tennessee, Southeastern Kentucky and up into Virginia. Obviously I air down when off road to 15psi on factory rims and they’ve never let me down. Now I’m on 37’s with over 40k on them and I expect to get close to another 40k! I think they are the Best all around tire, daily driver or rock monster they work great!

5.0 Great Traction

I've only had these tires a few weeks so I am rating performance not longevity or tread life. I purchased these tires right before deer season here in Idaho. I tow a 31.5' travel trailer into the mountains. The roads were descent for the most part. The last mile before my camp they turned seriously muddy with huge puddles. With my truck in 4WD high the tires performed amazingly well. We also had packed snow on the mountain roads and they did great in those conditions as well. And they look beefy on the truck. Much better than on the store shelf.

5.0 A Bronco's best friend!

I just bought (5) LT285/75R16E K02s for my 2022 Ford Bronco Base Model 2-Door. Just like I always did for my 1979 Bronco Custom & my 1992 Bronco XL, the only tires for my truck will be BF Goodrich! Best tire for the job & the All Terrain tire everyone else tries to copy!
