Anyone have experience with the new bfg all terrains. They look like a big improvement over the old, right up my alley.

What is the difference between the old and new?

I've bought 2 sets over the last few years.

What do you want to know?

Bigger side lugs and stronger sidewalls. Apparently. Obviously higher price but they look better so I want them.

Ha Ha! Made you look.

I see now, the BFG AT KO [HTML_REMOVED] the BFG AT KO2.

I have the KO, not the KO2. I do run the E range version which is something like 10 ply.

Take it down to the shell, remove everything, replace half the body with fibreglass, replace live axle and leaf springs with IRS/LSD etc.

Or just buy an old E36.

General Grabber AT2 [HTML_REMOVED] the BFG AT KO2.

The KO2 looks similar to my General Grabber AT2, which were hella cheaper than either BFG.

Simillar looking tread doesn't mean the carcass and rubber construction will be the same
