BFGoodrich All Terrain KO2

These tires performed surprisingly well in snow on streets and in rain.

Off-Road: I took my stock Xterra to a local off-road park that was 90% mud and sandy creeks, and they performed exceptionally well compared to what I had experienced with my Chevy S10 ZR2 with the KO(1st gen) equipped. They did have some trouble with wet sand and ejecting it, but I was able to get through a knee deep muddy ditch on a slight decline with my right tires straddling a fallen tree. I had no recovery aids available and after a few attempts at placing smaller branches in front of my rear tires I was over the log and up the ditch.

I aired down from 50psi(344kPa) to 18psi(124kPa) front and 15psi(112kPa) rear. After doing this I was able to climb every wet sandy hill I tried except the one in which I got high centered at the top. The rig was able to climb over roots, and moderate rocks in these hills as well. I really believe these A/T tires are the best off-road tire you can get before getting into M/T.

To note, my Xterra did not come equipped with the optinal rear LSD, my Xterra has fully open differentials front and back; for now.

Thank you
