I read over on the expo portal post of a new BFG All Terrain T/A KO2 DT tire. Not much information available but Costco and Discount tire have a few sizes. "DT" means for heavier truck .... So I did a chat on BFG web page to find out more information.
It went as follows:
Where can i find information on the new tire and sizes for All Terrain T/A KO2 DT. The "DT" is for heavier trucks? I 'm near the gross vehicle weight and needing tires.
Hello, thank you for your interest in BFGoodrich tires! I will be happy to assist you with that information.
DT stands for different tread.
The new KO2 DT has a new sturdier tread compound that will allow for a longer tread life. They no longer have the 3 Peak Mtn. Snowflake for severe weather conditions.
Would you like to leave your name, phone number and email to have on file with BFGoodrich if you have any future questions or concerns?
No longer have the 3 peak, that's too bad. selling point on the ones I have for the mountain roads. I can not find any info on your web page for these tires. Please provide a link for more info so I can see if I want to buy them.
They are the same as the KO2, the only differences are what I provided.
The DT are not listed for sale on our website just yet.
Ok, but still there is NO mention of "DT" anywhere I searched on your web page other than asking you. But Cosco and Discount tire see them but have no information to give me.
I apologize, our website takes time to update. The DT was just released this month and the website has not caught up.
Here is the information provided to us: · The BFG Team has redesigned the 6 sizes of the KO2 with the most wear Issues that go on HD (Heavy Duty) Trucks, and is adding a 50k mileage warranty because of a new sturdier tread compound. Unfortunately, these sizes won’t have the 3 Peak Mtn. Snowflake.
· These more robust sizes will be called the KO2 DT and 2 sizes will be out in July, and the other 4 sizes will release in August. They will have new MSPNs.
Ok thanks. I can wait a few months to buy tires. Hopefully by then you have got your ducks in a row and customers can make a clear choice in tire purchase. Thanks for the information you provided
You are welcome. Thank you for contacting BFGoodrich Chat Services. Have a great day!
