BFGOODRICH® – ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2
ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 Tires by BFGoodrich®. Season: All Season. Type: Truck / SUV, All Terrain / Off Road / Mud. The tire that invented the all-terrain category, setting the standard for on- and off-road performance. Dual-compound tread and ShoulderLock™ technology with 40% wider shoulder grooves provide increased traction and control in aired-down driving situations. Three-ply polyester carcass delivers stiffer tread area for more precise steering response, better cornering control, excellent puncture and exceptional bruise resistance.
Split and bruise resistant sidewall rubber, derived from BFGoodrich's race proven Baja T/A®KR2 tire.
Thicker and Extended Shoulder
Increased rubber thickness, extending down the sidewall to protect more of the critical sidewall failure zone.
Serrated Shoulder Lugs
Protruding sidewall rubber blocks provide increased mud, snow and rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations.
Raised bars in the shoulder tread help to release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy and soft soil conditions.
Provide increased tread block stability, for more even wear over the long haul.
Reject stone retention and provide extra tread clean-out protection against stone drilling.
Company's strategy is to manufacture tires in the country where they will be sold whenever possible. In fact, the vast majority of their products sold in North America, are built in the 21 plants they have across the United States, Canada and Mexico, employing most of the 23,000 employees of Michelin North America, Inc. However, BFGoodrich is an international company, with manufacturing operations at 74 plants across 19 countries around the world. To meet the needs of customers by providing more specialized tire lines in smaller quantities, they import some tire lines into North America and export others from North America.
The Goodrich Corporation, formerly the B.F. Goodrich Company, was an American aerospace manufacturing company based in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was founded in Akron, Ohio in 1870 as Goodrich, Tew & Co. by Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich. The company name was changed to the "B.F. Goodrich Company" in 1880, to BFGoodrich in the 1980s, and to "Goodrich Corporation" in 2001. In 1869, Benjamin Franklin Goodrich purchased the Hudson River Rubber Company, a small business in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. The following year, Goodrich accepted an offer of $13,600 from the citizens of Akron, Ohio, to relocate his business there. The company grew to be one of the largest tire and rubber manufacturers in the world, helped in part by the 1986 merger with Uniroyal (formerly the United States Rubber Company). This product line was sold to Michelin in 1988, and the company merged with Rohr (1997), Coltec Industries, and TRW Aeronautical Systems (formerly Lucas Aerospace) in 2002. The sale of the specialty chemicals division and subsequent change to the current name completed the transformation.
