BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO vs. Michelin LTX A/T 2

Two of the most popular On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires are the Michelin LTX A/T 2 and the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO. Both are premium all-terrain tires that are durable, reliable, long-wearing tires with great traction in snow and light off-road use. So, which should you choose?

When researching our Tire Survey Results, you'll find that most people rate the Michelin LTX A/T 2 higher than the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO. It is smoother and quieter riding, with higher marks in wet traction and treadwear. However, our survey does not report or ask for feedback about off-road traction. Based on non-scientific feedback that I've heard over my decade of experience here at Tire Rack, the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO seems to perform better in off-road conditions. Many customers also like the unique appearance of the T/A KO tread pattern.

If traction and durability for off-road use is a priority, I'd lean towards the All-Terrain T/A KO. If the vast majority of your driving is on the street and/or light off-road use only, I'd recommend the Michelin LTX A/T 2.

I have run the BFG AT T/O KO for about 400k on three different pickups. I do a lot of rural driving (I farm and ranch) It has great traction in mud and snow and is 'self cleaning'. It is not too noisy. But like I said I drive A LOT of gravel roads and about 35K is all I get on a set. I have tried other tires but always go back. I ran the Michelin LTX a/t 2s about 50k. More mileage, less traction. My two bits.
