BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2
Follow-Up Review: 5,000 miles on tires
December 19, 2012
I Love the look of this tire, the rounded shoulders and the smooth sidewalls,<br>They have worked well on my Jeep and my 3/4 ton truck even towing.<br>However:<br>Went up the Mountain yesterday and again the deep snow traction is great, however my first time on snow packed and icy conditions with these tires, (only 5 k miles not much wear) was Extremely scary. These tires are the worst ice tires I have ever owned, and I have had a lot of different tires on many different 4x4s over the years, living near MT Hood a lot of snow driving. I still like this tire, but not on ice or even snow pack, they are actually dangerous. They do great on most everything else, but please be Extremely careful on packed snow and ice!!! I knew they would not be good on ice, no mud tire really is, but these things are horrible like a bald tire on icy snow packed roads. As soon as you get off in deep snow they are great, but on the icy road watch out!!!!! <br>Watch out for deep puddled water as they pull hard to one side also.<br>This is a very unbiased report, because I love this tire, but the fact is on and hard pack snow or ice they are horrible.

Awesome looking tire, nice rounded shoulder with smoother sides and no ugly huge side bitter garbage on the side of the tire.
They balance well and sound great, not loud at all, but a good 4x4 hum to let you know this is no car. Great in deep snow, Great in sand, good in mud, great on dry pavement and even towing, especially for a mud tire, the high duromater rubber does not squirm so steering and towing is precise and stable. Very impressive for an aggressive tread!
I now have these tire on my Jeep and my 3/4 ton 4x4 truck.
This tire has 2 severe downfalls however, it is bad on Ice and does something I have had no other tire I have ever owned do before. (And I used to own a tire store, I also sell my tires and buy new ones just to try different tires)
When entering puddled water on the roadway, they swerve violently to one side, its is seriously scary. I have new steering dampers on my Jeep and my truck and they both do the same thing. It is seriously weird and very bad. Other than that I love the tires. Neither of these rigs is a daily driver so its not a big deal, but you really need to be careful in deep or puddled water.
