  • BFGoodrich has announced the All-Terrain T/A KO3 tire as the successor to the legendary KO2.

  • As things currently stand, the new KO3 is factory-equipped on the new Ford Ranger Raptor and certain versions of the Chevy Silverado 2500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD.

  • This month, BFG will launch 13 sizes of the KO3 before adding over 100 more sizes over the next two years.

It's the dawn of a new era for the off-roading and overlanding communities. BFGoodrich just announced the launch of the All-Terrain T/A KO3 tire, acting as the successor to the legendary KO2.

As the numbering suggests, the KO3 is the third generation of BFG's All-Terrain T/A KO series—KO stands for "key off road." The KO2 launched 10 years ago, following the original KO, and it has amassed a reputation among off-road enthusiasts, finding its way onto many trail-bound trucks and SUVs in the intervening years. Now, BFG is launching the KO3 to build on the KO2's exemplary performance.

"We’ve done a lot of racing and research in the 10 years since we launched the KO2 tire, so a decade of data, feedback, technology, and experience went into the development of the KO3 tire," said BFGoodrich Global General Manager Harold Phillips. "We are our own competition, and we knew it was time to take the all-terrain tire to another level. It will be exciting to see what consumers will do—at work and at play—with the KO3 tire."

BFG says the KO3 strengthens the KO2's features, improving wear performance, gravel road durability, and snow traction without ruining the strong sidewall and loose-surface traction of the old tire. The KO3 features a new tread compound, arranged in a different pattern for better durability on gravel roads.

The updated design of the serrated shoulder and "Mud-Phobic Bars" claim to improve mud and snow performance. As with the old tire, the KO3 earns the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake severe-snow rating. The KO3 currently comes factory-equipped on the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor and select trims of the 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 2024 GMC Sierra 2500HD.

BFG will launch over 100 sizes for the new tire over two years, starting with 13 in May, 17 in August, five in October, and over 50 in 2025. The K03 is available on TireRack right now in LT285/70R-17 and LT275/65R-20 sizing.
