New BF Goodrich Mud tyres

Following everyones great advice on my enquiry about F250 tyres. I did more research and descovered these new BF Goodrich mud terrian T/A K2. (see picture).

Not normally a person to put them on a vehcile, as I considered them the realm of the "die hard off roader". My research showed they they were exceptionally quiet. I love those terms. Quiet compared to what, a locomotive at 15 meters?

Driving home on the Pacific Highway (concrete) at 100 kiolmeters per hour, I was amazed at how quiet they were.

It was pointed out that F250's produce cracks in the tyre side walls and these have much great strengthened sidewalls. In fact 30% Image Could Not Be Foundmore than the previous model. My road test does not have any ideas yet, on how good they are in the mud but that day will come. SOON I hope.

There is no link between the tyre manufacturer and myself and no animals were injured in the production of this thread. (I did however scare off and crow sitting beside the highway)

You won't be dissapointed and they grip well on a wet road as well.

I couldn't believe that they were quieter than the BFG A/T's that they replaced on my 105 series.

I have the earlier version and am in the process of replacing them shortly with the KM2 tyres so good feed back, thanks.

The Muddies are very quiet when new but if they behave like the original MT's they will probably get noisier as they wear down.

Nice looking tyre also :-)

Yes I replaced my old BFG MT's with the newer version not that long ago.

They are very quite, in fact we also have a new ford fiesta inwhich the road noise in that (seems) louder than the K2's on the 90 series Prado (Diesel!)

The K2's are a little squirmy on wet roundabouts though after a recent trip over to Queanbeyan for the 4WD show, not sure if there are worse than the old MT's though as the roundabouts in Wagga are not generally as smooth & they are also smaller.

I was so impressed with the life of the old tyres I had to go with these again. 95,000km & still very legal but wet road performance gets worse the less tread you have so it was time to change them.

IMHO the best value tyre with a no compromise tread - you will not be as concerned when the sky turns black & your still 200km from bitumen!

Also just replaced my old BFG Muds with the K2's.
Got 75,000KM out of the previous two sets with the older pattern.
Hope these do as well.

Hi Guys,

Well I have decided to purchase a set as well for the Cruiser??!!

How do I recognise the new MT's as KM2. Is there some way of identification?
