Identification of new BF Goodrich KM2

Hi Guys,

Is there any Identification on the new MT KM2. A mate of mine assures me his new tyres are in fact the new KM2 but there does not seem to be any ref on the tyre to this fact.

What should I look for.


Regards

JD

Certainly has "KM2" embossed on the sidewall of mine, I have the white lettering facing inwards. Didn't look on the side with the white letters.

Hi Peter, Thanks for reply and info, I shall, sneak a peek, and confirm a KM2 mark. I would not recognise the old tread pattern from the new, but will search out a KM2 as opposed to the older.

By the way what does KM2 "Mean".

Richard, Thanks for picture, they look good.

Just about made up my mind to do the same. Happy with Coopers (ATR) but looking for something a bit more aggresive.

If uou don't mind How much??

JD,

$355 a corner so not cheap. Could have got them $9 cheaper each tyre but stuck to the tyre people I have been using for a fair while.
Previous set two years ago were $295 a corner however there has been a substantial increase in the cost of most tyres since then.

PS. Tread is only 16mm deep compared to 20mm on the previous 2 sets.
Be interesting to see what KM's I get. Got 75,000KM out of the previous two sets.

Richard,

No they are not cheap, but did get a good write up in this months 4WD Action. Got good marks for nearly every section espeacially road noise, second quitest.

Know I have to convince the Financial Controler to lend me the money, oops give, I mean.

Thanks for info.

Peter,

Mine are 285/75/16's so I guess that's not too bad.

If you are unfortunate enough to have 17 inch tyres, the price will jump a good deal as well. Mine were around $460 a tyre for 305 mm wide.

I nearly fainted.
