OVERVIEW: The Toyo Open Country MT is purpose built for rugged off road duty, while providing incredible road manners in a mud terrain tire. Offering rugged toughness, amazing mud traction and aggressive styling, the Open Country MT is fit for any off-road challenge. Also known to be one of the best riding and quietest mud tires in the category, Toyo's mud terrain offering is a true do it all tire.
OVERVIEW: The All-Terrain T/A KO ("KO" for Key benefit On and Off-road) is BFGoodrich's On/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed to meet the needs of pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers who want confidence and control on and off the road. The All-Terrain T/A KO was designed to deliver go-anywhere traction along with outstanding durability and great wear.
The All-Terrain T/A KO features an aggressive, computer-optimized, high-void, all-terrain pattern with interlocking tread blocks and innovative siping to provide traction and handling without generating excessive noise. "ShoulderLock" upper sidewall traction bars maximize aired-down performance by provide the clawing action necessary to develop traction and steering control in deep dirt and sand. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts on top of BFGoodrich's TriGard (3-ply polyester cord sidewall plies) construction for strength and durability. Single strand beads (a single strand of bead wire is continuously wrapped multiple times until the desired strength is provided) enhance the tire's fit to the wheel to improve uniformity and ride quality, while rim protectors molded into the lower sidewall help shelter wheels from off-road hazards, especially during aired-down operation.
OVERVIEW: The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 (KM for Key feature: Mud traction and 2 identifying it as BFGoodrich's 2nd generation KM tire) is an Off-Road Maximum Traction tire developed for off-roaders driving full-sized, lifted trucks that participate in rock climbing and/or other challenging off-road driving. The Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 is designed from the mud up to overcome almost any obstacle in its path by combining more traction and mud-clearing ability than its predecessor with a smoother ride and less road noise than normally expected from an aggressive tire.
The Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 molds an off-road tread compound into a Krawler T/A KX-inspired symmetric design that features deep, self-cleaning independent tread blocks and linear transverse flex zones that provide the elasticity needed to allow the tire to conform to off-road obstacles when aired-down and driven at low speeds.
The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts and BFGoodrich's Krawler TEK sidewalls and casing. Krawler TEK consists of three components that include aggressive sidewall lugs, cut- and chip-resistant sidewall compounds and BFGoodrich's TriGard casing (three-ply polyester construction) with sidewall cords that are up to 33 percent stronger than the previous Mud-Terrain T/A KM tire. These advancements allow for more bite and sidewall protection along with increased strength and resistance to bruising caused by rocks and rough trails. Single strand beads (a single strand of bead wire is continuously wrapped multiple times until the desired strength is provided) enhance the tire's fit to the wheel to improve uniformity and ride quality.
BFGoodrich Baja T/A
OVERVIEW: The Baja T/A is BFGoodrich’s race-spec Off-Road Maximum Traction tire that has been chosen by more Baja 1000 champions than all other tires combined. Built to prevail over some of the toughest conditions on Earth, Baja T/A tires are designed to provide confidence-inspiring durability and excellent soft surface traction in off-road conditions.
Baja T/A tires mold BFGoodrich’s X-tra traction tread compound into an aggressive, deep-lug, self-cleaning symmetric tread design featuring tread block edges and brawny, solid sidewall lugs to deliver great side bite and lateral traction in off-road situations.
The tire’s internal structure combines two full-width steel belts on top of four nylon sidewall plies to deliver exceptional strength, bruise resistance, sidewall puncture resistance and structural integrity.
While Off-Road Maximum Traction tires are branded with the M+S symbol and able to churn through deep snow, their typical oversize applications and the absence of snow-biting sipes in their large smooth lugs can challenge their on-road wintertime traction on packed snow and icy surfaces.
Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac
OVERVIEW: Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rugged tread compound that helps resist tread block chipping, chunking and tearing, especially during heavy loading and towing applications. Its symmetric tread design combines large shoulders and highly angled center tread blocks to enhance stability and traction in dry and wet conditions. Self-cleaning, stepped shoulder blocks, zigzag sipes and Goodyear's TractiveGroove Technology at the base of the circumferential grooves provide thousands of biting edges to enhance traction in deep mud and snow. Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip throughout the life of the tire and offers a built-in rim protector to help protect wheels from accidental damage on- and off-road.
Wrangler DuraTrac light truck tires are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol to identify they meet industry severe snow service standards. Wrangler DuraTrac tires are designed to accept optional #16 metal studs to enhance ice traction.
OVERVIEW: Extreme toughness and traction. Proven reliability. The all-new BFGoodrich KM3 tire delivers off-road performance unlike any mud-terrain tire before it. Featuring enhanced CoreGard Max technology for tougher sidewalls and Krawl-TEK tread compound for better grip and traction, the KM3 is built from the ground-up to conquer any terrain.
