Tough enough to drop from an airplane! To demonstrate the enhanced toughness of their new All-Terrain T/A KO2, BFGoodrich mounted them on wheels and dropped them from the sky.
With the majority of all-terrain tires' punctures happening in the sidewall area, BFGoodrich paid special attention to reinforcing the sidewalls with technology from their off-road racing Baja T/A KR2. Some sizes of the All-Terrain T/A KO2 are already in stock. More sizes will begin to arrive in the coming weeks and months. The goal is to make the tire available in all popular sizes in the all-terrain market.
This second-generation KO tire is developed to meet the needs of jeep, pickup truck and sport utility drivers who want confidence and control on- and off-road. It's designed to deliver go-anywhere traction along with outstanding durability, great wear and year-round traction, even in snow.
Of the 12 tires that BFGoodrich dropped in the course of making this video, only one of them deflated. The reason: the wheel itself cracked. The tire was not harmed!
