KM2 The BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire can take anything and throw it right back. Designed from the mud up, it is built to eclipse any obstacle - and any other tire - on the trail. BFGoodrich Tires is releasing phase II of the Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 sizes which will accompany the original sizes released in September 2007. Due to consumer demand, starting on August 1, the 285/75R16 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire will be released with additional sizes following in August and September.

With more off-roaders going big these days in their choice of trucks, lift kits and tire sizes, BFGoodrich Tires has the solution for nearly every application. The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire will be available in 37 sizes ranging from LT215/75R15 to 42x14.50R20 to satisfy today's core off-road enthusiasts.

"The Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire has proven that it can handle the turns and terrain on and off the trails" said Joe Mazur, light-truck category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "With the release of additional sizes the Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire will provide more off-road enthusiasts the opportunity to experience a tire that is truly built to handle the trails."

Inspired by the BFGoodrich Krawler™ T/A® KX tire, which is the most successful tire in rock-crawling history, BFGoodrich Tires has incorporated Krawler TeK® technology into the BFGoodrich Tires Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 TriGard® sidewall. Krawler TeK technology consists of three components that dramatically improve the sidewall strength as compared to the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM tire. These three components consist of: aggressive sidewall lugs, cut and chip- resistant sidewall compounds and sidewall cords that are up to 33 percent stronger than the previous Mud-Terrain T/A KM tire.These advancements allow for more bite and sidewall protection along with increased strength and resistance to bruising caused by rocks and rough trails.

Sporting the same attractive, raised white lettering on the sidewall as its predecessor, the Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire commands respect in all environments. Additionally, the Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire boasts exceptional even wear characteristics and outstanding grip due to its Krawler-inspired tread design and a more Linear Flex Zone across the face of the tread. The result is a tire with an aggressive look and appeal partnered with unbelievable traction either off-road or around town.

Using motorsports as a proving ground for more than 30 years, BFGoodrich Tires is involved in every type of racing, including oval, sports car, drifting, drag, desert, dirt, rally (Dakar and WRC) and extreme rock-crawling. BFGoodrich Tires combines technological expertise with vast motorsports experience, delivering a high-performance tire for every type of vehicle.
