The BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM tire is an off road maximum traction light truck tire that was designed with mud traction in mind. The tire was designed for sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks. This tire will deliver extreme off road traction while providing impressive looks as well as steering control in dirt, mud and even on slick surfaces. This tire is created with an advanced tread compound that has been molded into a symmetric pattern. It features large interlocking center tread blocks with alternating width “DiggerLugz”. These “DiggerLugz” extend across the tire’s shoulders providing necessary clawing to dig down. This also will work against the sides of muddy ruts giving additional pulling power. The tire is a low noise tire with a high void tread design that reduces the noise generation greatly. The tire has a larger and more rectangular footprint which helps to enhance the tire’s rock climbing ability even further while providing better traction on slick surfaces. Internally the BF Goodrich MUD Terrain T/A KM tire features two steel belts which can be found on top of3 ply polyester cord sidewall plies which adds durability and strength to the tire. The tire also features single strand beads to enhance the tire’s fit to the wheel and this helps to improve the uniformity and the quality of the ride. There are also rim protectors that can be found molded into the lower sidewall which help to shelter the tire. Though these tires are M+S branded and can go through deep snow they are not suitable for driving on roads that are ice or that have packed snow.
