During the design phase, engineers focused on producing a tyre capable of overcoming all obstacles on harsh, uneven, muddy and rocky surfaces, which is why robustness was their top priority.
To ensure exceptional strength and endurance, three technologies have been incorporated into the BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/AKM2 – aggressive sidewall lugs, cut and chip-resistant sidewall compounds, and stronger sidewall cords. These three technical features have already proven their effectiveness on the most successful tyre in the history of extreme, off-road racing, the BF Goodrich Krawler TEK.
The sidewall cords of the BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/AKM2 are up to 33% stronger than those of the previous-generation tyre. The TriGard 3-ply casing also has stronger cords that significantly improve sidewall damage-resistance.
The tyre features thick lugs on the shoulders that extend onto the sidewalls. These provide the dual benefit of superior grip and enhanced protection, and the new cut- and chip-resistant rubber compound greatly reduces the risk of tears caused by sharp rocks.
Delivering enhanced strength, damage resistance and grip, the new BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/AKM2 is claimed to provide off-road drivers with outstanding performance on a variety of surface conditions.
It will be available in 16 sizes in 15-, 16- and 17-inch diameters for tyre widths from 215 to 305mm, in 85 to 70 series aspect ratios and with a Q speed symbol. The M+S marking on the sidewalls indicates that the tyre has been approved for use in mud and snow.
