BFG A/T's and BFG A/T KO

I was looking for tires the day and I found BFG A/T's for $171 a piece and I found BFG A/T KO's for $132. Whats the difference in these tires besides price?

True dat! The only thing they aren't great in is the mud/nasty clay, but they are still decent in there.

There's different tread compounds in ko's as well, some are snow rated and others are not. I don't know how much different they are, I've only run the snow rated ones (they have a snowflake on em)

the KO's don't wear down as fast as the A/T's

other way around...

KO have softer compound.. still lasting like 50k+

the older style non KO has less sipping and has a harder compound and have been known to last 90k+ but also dont have as good of traction because of the harder compound...



either way get the KO more sipping better traction...

unless you want to go mudding every day and dont want to get stuck then get some M/T
