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.

I ran the Michelin LXT AT2 17" on an all wheel drive 2007 Jeep grand Cherokee. At 100'000 miles they still had enough tree to safely drive though winter in Minnesota. I ran until fall and got another new pair at 117,000 miles. I've never seen anything like it rain excellent, snow excellent, gravel great, mud good but will well if the tire speed is enough to clear the tread. Ice only acceptable. Safe, but not a grabber. Use common sense. The tires are heavy if you rotate yourself. Cornering excellent for a truck tire dry or wet. A bit of higher pitch wine noise but not loud. You do hear the. Though.
