I would recommend the KO2 and skipping the KO (which is the older version). KO2s are great tires. I have them on our Grand Cherokee and Wrangler.

I am currently running my bfg ko all terrains and have been for a few years now. An amazing tire no doubt! However the ko2 looks nicer, and offers better sidewall protection, which for a person like me who plays in all kinds of terrain,(sand, mud, snow, rocks, dirt, etc.) Would really like! So ko owner over here encouraging ko2!

KO2's are not available for 15" yet. I heard October-ish. However the older KO's are great. Very quiet on the highway at any speed. Good in loose gravel and rock that we have here in AZ. Some say they are not good in snow but I found that they really dig in when I'm in the deep stuff.

Happy Trails,
Bob

Im in agreement with everyone saying go KO2. Currently I run KOs and holding out on KO2s in the 15s in October. I hear they are tougher (they dropped one out of a plane in their recent commercial, put it on, and drove away with it), better in snow (though my KO did great except in ice), more mileage (my last set I replaced at 75k, current set has 80k), release gravel better, and a couple other "betters" I forget lol. The KO is still a darn good tire!

The KOs have outshined on every vehicle I have seen 'em on. I posted a lot about them in the Duratrac vs KO2 thread. A lot of people on here run those 2 tires... BFG AT and Wrangler Duratrac. Duratracs look good and get a lot of good ravings about them, the only thing I see as a negative is they get less mileage.

The KO is a great tire in just about every terrain except mud and is very quiet, however, I agree with the others to wait it out til the R15 sizes come out in October for the KO2s. The KO2s so far have also become very popular and worked up quite a good reputation already like the old KOs. The newer tread design, also still very similar to the KO, has better clear outs and is a little better in mud. Only thing I've heard bad about KO2s is apparently they haven't carried over the rim protectors that were found on the KOs.

I've been told by my tire shop that largest tire on a stock TJ (without body or suspension lift) is 31x10.50 with the 15" wheel.

Your tire shop is wrong. A guy I used to work with had 33x10.50r15 on a stock set of grizzlys with no lift.

If that's the case, then why are you running

with the same 33x10.5 tire?

I would be willing to bet he didn't hit any kind of bumps or his fenders would have been eaten alive......... .02

I absolutely love mine! They have amazing life in them, and honestly I go just as far and if not further then all my buddy's in trucks with mud tires! Then again the only reason i chose all terrain was because I drive it down on a river most the time, and mud tires will just create ruts in the sand. All terrain tires, have noooo problems down there. So depends on what your going for.

its not because the tire shop cant fit them. Im guessing that guy put his tires on himself, because tires shops have liability, and if you go off and hit a bump, or try to turn, and your fenders tear your tires, the tire shop knows your gonna be going back to them.....

Holy shit! I run them on canyon wheels with a lift so I can flex the axle like everyone else. I was pointing out that they can be put in stock rims, Grizzlies btw are 15x7, and knowing this guy I worked with (who was a dumbass) didn't install them himself.

Where do you live and what will you be driving them in? The BFG KO is horrible for sloppy conditions. So at long as you drive around snow and mud and standing water you'll be OK.

I consider that a very ignorant statement. I've ran the KOs in sloppy and powdery snow with zero problems. Yeah they suck in mud but that's the truth about 90% of all All Terrain tires.

I completely disagree. Ive driven in every condition to include a foot of snow and no issues. Very reliable and safe tire IMO

I like it but will stay away due to the muddy high mountain passes and trails...not that soupy crap people go mudding in, but slippery mud on steep trails and passes when thunderstorms roll in. I think it would be okay in the snow and quiet on the highway.

To each their own. I've run BFG KO three times over the years. Hands down the worst tire on the market for snow and mud. These new ATs of the last 10-15 years will destroy them in every condition except rocks.

I've run the bfg at ko's and found that they are decent on snow, not great in mud and when I comes to rocks will keep up with my freinds with bfg mt's.

Hmmmm....interesting thread.

Looks like it was started in the wrong section as the OP has a JK, but a lot of the answers are from TJ owners. So it was moved to the general board, and the thing that jumps out at me is that the TJ owners are much more fonder of the original KO than the JK owners.

It depends on what tire size. Most of the sizes are already out but alot more sizes are coming out in October like most of your conventional R15 tires

My TJ has the 15x8 Ravine wheels. I guess I might have to buy the old style BFG A/T's this time around. I doubt my tires will even make it until September.

Could always pick up a temporary used set off CL to get you by and flip them once the KO2s in your size come out

I think they went into production early. Tire Rack shows them in stock.
