12

Since its launch in 1976, the BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A®KO tire is the industry's premier all-terrain light-truck tire. Known for delivering the ideal combination of style and performance, the All-Terrain T/AKO tire line will be available in six additional LRe rated sizes, providing drivers with additional load-carrying capacity. The All-Terrain T/AKO line features 51 fitments ranging in size from 215/75R15 to 325/60R22 with sizes 225/75R16 LRe and 285/70R17 LRe available now, 305/54R16 LRe and 325/65R18 LRe released in May and 325/0R20 and 265/75R16 LRe released in June.

"BFGoodrich Tires understands that drivers face a variety of conditions and circumstances out on the road and need a tire that can easily adapt to their changing environment," said Joe Mazur, brand light truck category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "The additional LRe sizes of the All-Terrain T/AKO will ensure that drivers can go where they want to go and do what they want to do both on- and off-road without sacrificing payload and air pressure requirements they expect."

The All-Terrain T/AKO tire is known for its excellent off-road performance, having been tested in some of the most extreme off-road motorsports competitions over the last 30 years. It boasts a number of unique attributes, such as improved stress distribution, which translates to as much as a 12 percent increase in tread life. High-strength, single-strand bead construction, two full-width steel belts and a three-ply polyester carcass contribute to the All-Terrain T/AKO tire's legendary strength and durability. The stiffer tread area allows for precise steering and improved handling without sacrificing on-road comfort or a quiet ride.
