BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO
Initial Review: 40,000 miles on tires
May 07, 2012

Put these BFG KO-LT tires on my 82 Landcruiser. 60,000 km So far They have been good. It has excellent grip in the rain and snow.
With these tires the 2.5 ton cruiser goes through almost 3 ft of snow without a problem.
I have never had a flat tire with these when traveling in the backcountry. I've been all over B.C., Alberta and the Yukon.

The tire is at it's best in the snow and dirt. In heavy mud it can clog up quickly.
However, with enough speed the tires will clear out enough to keep going forward.
I can't comment on road noise, the old diesel engine is load enough I can't hear much else.

Can't comment on ride comfort. The old Landcruiser isn't comfortable to begin with. Solid axle front & rear with leaf springs.
Like an old west wagon cart. You get the idea.

If your looking for a decent tire for light-moderate off road that can still be used on pavement then this is the one.
At 60,000 km's the tires are at about 35%, not bad at all. They still keep good grip.
