BFGoodrich Tires Proves Bigger is Better
Sep 5, 2007
By: Press Release


GREENVILLE, S.C. – The BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire can take anything and throw it right back. Designed from the mud up, it is built to eclipse any obstacle – and any other tire – on the trail. BFGoodrich Tires’ brain trust of engineers and designers improved the performance and styling of the previous BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM tire to give serious off-roaders the edge with a stronger, more capable tire than anything seen before. After all, when the pavement ends, there is no such thing as an unfair advantage. The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 will ultimately be available in the largest amount of sizes and fitments over the course of the next two years and will go on sale beginning with phase one in September 2007, following up with phase two in September 2008.

With more off-roaders going big these days in their choice of trucks, lift kits and tire sizes, BFGoodrich Tires has the solution for nearly every application. The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 tire will ultimately be available in 34 sizes after each phase is complete, ranging from LT215/75R15 to 42x14.50R20 to satisfy today’s core off-road enthusiasts. Phase one available in September 2007 will include 16 sizes focusing on larger rim and overall tire diameters.

“One look at its ‘Krawler-like’ tread and you can tell the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 isn’t merely an update of a previous tire. It’s a completely different animal,” said Joe Mazur, light-truck category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. “However, off the trail, the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 has surprisingly good manners, which make it one beast that’s easy to live with.”

Inspired by the BFGoodrich Tires Krawler™ T/AKX which is the most successful tire in rock-crawling history, BFGoodrich Tires has incorporated Krawler TEK® into the BFGoodrich Tires Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 TriGard® sidewall. Krawler TEK consists of three components that dramatically improve the sidewall strength as compared to the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/AKM tire. These three components consist of: aggressive sidewall lugs, cut- & chip- resistant sidewall compounds and sidewall cords that are up to 33 percent stronger than the previous Mud-Terrain T/AKM tire. These advancements allow for more bite and sidewall protection along with increased strength and resistance to bruising caused by rocks and rough trails.

Sporting the same attractive raised white lettering on the sidewall as its predecessor, the Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 commands respect in all environments. Additionally, the Mud-Terrain T/AKM2 boasts exceptional even wear characteristics and outstanding grip due to its Krawler-inspired tread design and a more Linear Flex Zone across the face of the tread. The result is a tire with an aggressive look and appeal partnered with unbelievable traction either off-road or around town.

Using motorsports as a proving ground for more than 30 years, BFGoodrich® Tires is involved in every type of racing, including oval, sports car, drifting, drag, desert, dirt, rally (Dakar and WRC) and extreme rock-crawling. BFGoodrich Tires combines technological expertise with vast motorsports experience, delivering a high-performance tire for every type of vehicle.
