Goodyear tires were the ONLY tires that my father would buy, I can remember him saying that; "if you want good tires that will last, always buy Goodyear tires", that was 60 years ago, and to this day, anytime that I need tires, I remember my father's words.
BF Goodrich came with my truck and after many brands I returned to BF Goodrich, they are just awesome, traction quiet ride you just can not go wrong. BF Goodrich is owned by Michelin so you are getting quality.

I am pleased with the $550+ worth of BFG tires I purchased, but based on BFG's shady promotional techniques, I will never again purchase this brand. The short story: I bought a set of four BFG tires, in part based on a $50/set rebate promoted on the BFG website and elsewhere. I purchased the tires on the last date of the promotion--26 April--through Discount Tire, one of the largest retailers of tires in the country. When I sent in all required proof-of-purchase information through the BFG site, I heard back: "These tires were not purchased through a dealer who was participating in the promotion" and the rebate was denied.
Yes, I'm sure there's some fine print somewhere in the promotion's legal copy allowing for this. But no significant mention was made in the promotional materials. And I think it's pretty reasonable to assume a national tire retailer like Discount Tire would be included in such a national promotion program. To be clear, my experience with Discount Tire was completely positive; and the particular BFG tires have (so far) performed well. My issue is with a company that would engage in a national rebate promotion in a highly misleading fashion. This will be the last BFG tires I ever purchase.
Been buying these back when they were just KOs. Not great in heavy mud like going to drilling rig, but you can't beat them in the snow, rain, and I get great mileage. Run them on my Ford F150 crew cab 2010 heavy duty. Love these tires. Got general grippers one time, their mileage sucks!
We have a 2007 F350 4X4 single rear tires with a slide in 2200lbs camper. We use this truck only during the dry months for camping. We have B.F. Goodrich Rugged Terrain T/A tires. We have only 5000k miles on this set of tires. A recent return home from camping doing about 70 mph the left rear tire exploded losing all the tread and severely damaging the left rear quarter panel and some adjacent suspension parts, along with destroying the rim! These tires although a few years old are very well maintained, covered from the UV rays, rotated and driven on with proper air pressure, for 40 or 50 miles every so often. They looked like new! Years passed on another 3/4 ton 4X4 I had sidewall failures on BF Goodrich Mud/Terrain tires. Thought it was a fluke. Will never buy another set of BF Goodrich tires after learning of all the failures exactly like we had from other consumers on this exact tire and from the Mud/Terrains I had in the past!
I ran the original TA/KO's for many many years on multiple trucks, even my buddies put them on their trucks. The tires were clean, high and tight, original design. Now the KO2's look like every other mud tire out there from the profile. I am glad that I am reading the reviews on the KO2 because I definitely not buy them now. I hate the new look as well! Why would they mess up such a good tire!?!? New Coke didn't work too well either.
Bought these tires for my Toyota Tacoma crew cab. These tires get mud in the grooves extremely easy and make driving hazardous. I Jackknifed a chipper going up a modest inclined and damaged my truck body. Would not recommend them at all.
I've used B.F. Goodrich Tires for years on everything from sports cars to off road vehicles and never had the first serious issue. In the past 4 years I had 2 KM2's in 255/80R17 delaminate on my Silverado 3500 dually. The tires were in great shape with no signs of dry rot and were filled to maximum inflation. The first one on the rear lost air after a small center portion about the size of a deck of cards came loose causing no damage. The next one on the front lost 75% of its tread doing damage to the whole side of my truck and almost causing vehicles behind me lose control. Need look less to say this will be the last set of B.F. Goodrich tires I own.
Took them on the sand in Hawaii, amazing tire, we have a video of it here: **. We have had these on the truck for 6 months, no problems. We will be getting them again... If you're looking for a good sand tire, check these out!
I have used B.F. Goodrich tires on Land Cruisers since 1993 running 2 sets at a time. I could not recommend them more highly and converted many in our 4x4 club over the years, After having a set of the upgraded Ko2s fitted I would never buy another set of BF Goodrich tires again. They are so noisy and have been since day 1. I can't wait for them to wear out, they make driving a nightmare. I have taken them back to the fitters on numerous occasions to be balanced and pressures checked only to be told the tread wears uneven and yes they are noisy but there's nothing we can do. It’s a costly lesson if you buy the wrong tires.
