BFGoodrich K03 all-terrain tires arrive to put the K02 to pasture

BFGoodrich has launched a new generation of its leading all-terrain tires.

The BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K03 is the replacement for the K02which was and still is a popular choice for factory off-roaders like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Raptor Broncoas well as harder versions of the Jeep Wrangler. So the K03 has a lot to live up to.

Improvements include better wear performance, plus a new tread pattern and compound, both designed to increase traction and durability over different types of terrain, according to BFGoodrich.

The sidewalls were also designed to prevent objects from snagging and tearing this most vulnerable part of the tire. A serrated shoulder design and “mud bars” were designed to improve traction in mud and snow.

BFGoodrich also claims that the new compound and tread pattern provide greater longevity. Among the longevity-focused features are 3D locking strips, designed for even wear over the life of the tire. The tread shape was also designed to better distribute stress and loads, again to promote even wear across the entire surface of the tire.

According to Harold Phillips, global CEO of BFGoodrich, the new tire has been developed based on lessons learned over the 10 years since the launch of the K02.

The K03 begins shipping in May in 13 sizes, with 17 additional sizes arriving in August and five more in October. These will be followed by 52 additional sizes in 2025 and 19 sizes in 2026. BFGoodrich offers a 50,000-mile warranty on the rubber.
