20% Tougher Sidewalls: Featuring race-proven CoreGard™ Technology to take on the toughest road hazards with confidence.(1)
CoreGard Technology:Tougher Sidewall Rubber: Split & bruise resistant sidewall rubber, derived from BFGoodrich's race proven Baja T/A®KR2 tire. Thicker, Extended Shoulder Rubber: Increased rubber thickness, extending down the sidewall to protect more of the critical sidewall failure zone. Advanced Deflection Design: Computer predicted object path design deflects protruding objects from snagging & splitting the sidewall.
Longer Treadlife On and Off-Road: To extend your adventure.(2)
Specially formulated tread rubber: optimally blended to reduce chip and tear for superior gravel road endurance. Advanced tire footprint shape: results in more evenly distributed stress, for longer more uniform wear. Interlocking Tread Design: provide increased tread block stability, for more even wear over the long haul Stone Ejectors: Rejects stone retention & provides extra tread cleanout protection against stone drilling.
Aggressive All-Terrain Traction: Exceeding RMA Severe Snow Traction performance requirements.(3)to confidently get where you want to go.
Side Biter Lugs: Protruding sidewall rubber blocks that provide increased mud, snow & rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations. Mud-Phobic Bars: Raised bars in the shoulder tread area that helps to release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy and soft soil conditions. Serrated Shoulder Design: Staggered shoulder blocks that provide greater maneuverability in soft soil and deep snow conditions. Locking 3-D Sipes: 3-D active sipe technology, that provides more biting edges for significantly increased snow traction. 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake: Exceeds Rubber Manufacturer Association (RMA) Severe Snow Traction requirements.
(1) Improvement depends on the size of the tire purchased. 20% improvement based on internal sidewall splitting test results derived from a simulated sidewall aggression testing machine (patent pending US20120245859A1) vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT265/70R17. Actual on-road results may vary.
(2) On-Road: Based on internal wear tests vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17 Off-Road: Based on commissioned third-party gravel endurance tests vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17.
(3) Snow: Based on third-party snow traction tests vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17 using the ASTM F1805 Test.. Mud Traction: Based on internal subjective mud testing vs. the BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17.
