BFGoodrich Wins Another Baja 500

Monday, June 13, 2011 by Hunter Leffel
BFGoodrich continues its success in off-road racing by winning the 2011 Baja 500. Bryce Menzies was the winning driver with an average speed of just under 50 mph. He joins a list of famous winners including Ivan Stewart, Mickey Thompson and Parnelli Jones. 

The race takes place on Mexico's Baja Peninsula on a loop circuit that runs around 500 miles. Even though the course varies from year-to-year, this is arguably the most grueling off-road desert event in the world. There have been instances of the spectators building jumps and bumps on the course for their own entertainment.

This was BFGoodrich's 28th win in the past 31 years and 72nd overall. They take this winning knowledge from the race and apply it to their off-road product line.

The All-Terrain T/A KO has been a favorite with off-roaders for years. The tough look is more than equaled in off-road prowess. It is also one of the longest wearing all-terrains. Listed below are some comments from customers about this On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire:

"...why buy a different tire, they are awesome." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2001 Toyota Tundra

"...from wet city streets, to desert sand, to snow covered mountain passes in Colorado, I have never been let down by my BFGs." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2001 Dodge Ram

If you are looking for a more aggressive look with even more off-road capabilities, then take a look at the Mud-Terrain T/A KM2. Providing lots of bite, large void areas and independent blocks to promote self cleaning, and multiple construction features that result in a chip-resistant and strong sidewall, this tire is ready for the most demanding off-road situations. Read what some of our customers had to say about their experience with the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2:

"...great traction in mud and slop. I am mostly impressed by the mileage I have gotten out of them." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2006 Dodge Ram 2500

"...hands down the best tire I've ever owned." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Ford F250
