BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO

Pros
  • Durable
  • Good traction on dirt, rocks and gravel
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Mixed reviews on snow and ice
  • Gums up and slides in heavy mud
  • No tread-wear warranty
  • Noisy on paved roads

People who own the BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO say they love it. Owners who write reviews about this tire say it wears well and never fails them off-road -- except in mud, where the All Terrain T/A KO tends to gum up and lose traction. Reviews of its snow and ice performance are mixed, and owners note that this tire is noisy on pavement. There is no tread-wear warranty. Overall, experts prefer the Cooper Discoverer A/T3 (*Est. $200) for normal off-roading. If you need to drive in deep mud, reviews point to the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar (*Est. $210) .

Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road takes the BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO off-road in a head-to-head test of three tires. None of our other expert sources has tested this tire, but we found no shortage of thoughtfully written owner reviews at TireRack.com, Offroaders.com and Epinions.com.

1. Petersen's 4 Wheel & Off Road

The BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO loses Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road's three-tire comparison to the Hankook Dynapro ATM. The Hankook has the edge on sandy rock, and writer Kevin McNulty finds the BFGoodrich tire noisier than the Hankook or the Toyo Open Country A/T.
