BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

Pros
  • Great highway manners and grip
  • Capable on wet, dry and winter roads
  • Tough on rocks
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Less mud traction than rivals
  • No tread-wear warranty

Experts and owners praise the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 for having the toughness to tackle sharp, steep rock climbs while staying quieter on-road than most super-aggressive tires. In fact, owners say this tire delivers better on-road grip and handling on dry, wet, snowy and icy roads than any other tire in its class.

Mud traction gets mixed reviews. In an expert test at Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road, the Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 does fine in deep, soupy mud, but thick, tacky mud clogs the treads. When testers at Four Wheeler magazine hit deep mud and off-camber ruts, the Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 struggles for traction. Overall, reviewers prefer the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar (*Est. $210) for serious off-roading; its impressive performance on mud, rocks and the highway makes it a well-rounded choice.

Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road tests the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 on the highway, as well as on mud and rocks. Four Wheeler tests it head-to-head against nine other mud tires on the highway and on muddy, rutted slopes. Owners give their opinions about this tire at TireRack.com and Offroaders.com.

Our Sources

1. Petersen's 4 Wheel & Off Road

After "inhumane abuse" in this mud, rock and highway test, the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 shows some wear but no punctures. It makes testers "happy like pigs" in deep, soupy mud, although thick, tacky mud does clog the treads. It's also very quiet on the highway, for a mud tire.

Review: BFGoodrich KM2 Mud-Terrain Tires, Fred Williams, Feb. 2009

2. Four Wheeler

The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 doesn't fare so well in this mud-only test, finishing eighth out of 10 tires. Unlike in Petersen's test, the BFGoodrich tire's sidewalls can't get traction in a rutted off-camber hill climb, and it takes two tries to get enough traction on a regular hill climb. It is comfortable on the highway, though.
