Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had KM 2' on 3 trucks....love them. Bought a new trucks k in 2016 and immediately looked for a set of KM's. That year, the KM3 was new,purchased and installed. 7 years and 103,000 miles later looking for another set. This set still has miles left on them. Just time. Rotated every 5k and balanced every 15k or so. Never been let down in some of nastiest stuff the swamps of maryland can dish out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what they are hyped to be I bought a set of the km3 and was excited . Ive always been a BFG fan ever sense the bfg km mt . Then the km2 came out and they worked amazing on road and off road and got lots of millage out of them and sore by if you wanted a radial mt tire the bfg km2 was the best for all purpose . Then when the km3 came out i got a set and honestly i was crushed by the performance . Sure highway road stuff they where fine . And gravel roads . But life span was stupid short and off road performance sucked . Mud not good . Slick stuff like clay and mushy snow not good . Sure in moderate rocks they worked but then a again a bald tire works for that as well . Needless to say i was disappointed in the km3 . My km2 i got 66,000 miles out of and the km3 i got maybe 20,000 out of them . These where both ran on the same truck . Ive also ran them on other trucks in my fleet as well ( personal fleet ) bring back the km2 and ill by them for every thing i own again also would be nice to get 39 kx back in blue label best rock tire the every day weekend warrior

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tires 2rys old, rotated every 3500 miles. Still driv and sound like new. Many off-road tires over the years and these out preform any I’ve tried. Moving up to a 35 from a 33 in a few miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest tire ever I bought my set of 35x12.5x15 km3 a little over 3 years ago, I’ve owned my Jeep for over 28 years by far the best tire ever . It makes the Jeep ride smoother for sure. I’ve been off road in light and rough terrain and they perform excellent. I would recommend these tires to anyone looking for great ride and great grip. BF Goodrich did their homework and research when they came up with the Km3. CUSTOMER FOR LIFE. OIIIIO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mud tire on the market I put a set of KM2s on my 08 Tundra a few years after I bought it and they were expensive but I believe they are the best quality mud tire on the market. They are a little noisy and they don’t do great on pavement but they are outstanding when you get in the mud and the way they make your truck look is just worth it IMO. After the KM2s eventually wore down after about 50k miles I went ahead and got some KM3s and they look even better than the 2s and I feel like they are a little quieter on the highway. Not to mention the 2 sets and over 100k miles over all kinds of misquite thorns and road debris, I’ve never had a leak in any of my BFGs so far. I can’t say the same about the Michelins on my Camry or the Goodyears on my Tacoma. And don’t settle for the cheaper Taiwan made Nittos either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over 5 years and 40k+ miles!!!! Bought a set of the KM3s when they first came out. I had the first Land Rover Discovery 2 on KM3s in the USA. 5 1/2 years and 40k miles of wheeling from the swamps of Florida and everywhere else on the East Coast, they are ready to be replaced. No dry rotting, plenty of tread left, they have just worn a little funny (to be expected in a mud tire) and have gotten quite noisy. What am I replacing then with??? KM3s of course!!!! Best tire I've ever owned!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market The best M/T tire on the market! I have run quite a few other manufacturers M/T tire and so far this is the best out of all of them! These are replacing Nitto trail grappler and for people saying that B.F.G tires are cut small, once I had these mounted and under weight of my Jeep they measured the same. On the road the KM3 handles better then the competition and on the trail they do a amazing job! Even on wet roads they hold traction way more then other M/T tires. I am definitely going to keep running B.F.G tires from now on!

Speed Rating:

The speed rating is a measure of what speed the tire can safely maintain for sustained periods of time. A higher speed rating will generally indicate that you will have better control and handling characteristics. Speed rating standards are established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Manufacturers assign speed ratings to tires after extensive performance testing. On the sidewall of every tire, you’ll find one of these speed rating codes:

M – Up to 81 mph
N – Up to 87 mph
P – Up to 93 mph
Q – Up to 99 mph
R – Up to 106 mph
S – Up to 112 mph
T – Up to 118 mph
H – Up to 130 mph
V – Up to 149 mph
W – Up to 168 mph
Y – Up to 186 mph
Z – (See Below)

What does ‘Up to 99 mph’ really mean?
Tires with a Q speed rating can safely sustain speeds of up to 99 miles per hour. The tire may be able to reach higher speeds, but traveling at speeds higher than 99 mph for any length of time would be unsafe - the tire is not designed to handle it.

What is a Z Rating?
For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a Z rating may appear in the size designation ...above 186 mph, a Z rating must appear in the size designation, including a Y speed symbol in brackets.

A Few Tips About Speed Ratings…
Never mix tires with different speed ratings, as this may cause serious handling problems.

We don’t recommend downgrading the speed rating of your tires, as the vehicle manufacturer has done extensive testing to determine which tires match the various driving characteristics of the vehicle. However, if you are looking for better handling, there is generally no problem in moving up to a higher speed-rated tire.

Most importantly: Put safety first. The speeds shown are test speeds; they are not recommended speeds.

Temperature Rating:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated A – B – C. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

Traction Grade:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA – A – B – C. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Treadwear Grade:

A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Looking for new tires with optimal traction? Or are long-lasting treads a bigger priority? There’s a simple way to compare tire specs!

The Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) system was developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assist consumers in the purchase of their tires by providing a standard grading system used by all tire manufacturers. Tire manufacturers use the UTQG system to grade their tires in three important areas: treadwear, traction and temperature. The UTQG grade for each tire is shown on the paper label affixed to the tire and is also molded in the sidewall.

Treadwear Grade – A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Traction Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA ABC. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Temperature Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated ABC. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

UTQG is a great way to compare tires from various manufacturers and between specific lines from the same manufacturer. Remember: The UTQG isn’t a safety rating and it doesn’t guarantee a tire’s mileage performance - but you can use the UTQG in conjunction with price, warranty, appearance and recommendations to make the right tire choice for your needs. If you have any questions about UTQG or various tire lines, the Big O Tires team is always ready to help!

Hauling groceries – or bricks? The Load Rating or Load Index indicates how much weight each tire can safely support.

Every tire’s load rating is stamped into its sidewall. Once you know the load rating, you can use the chart below to determine the amount of weight that one tire can support. Then just multiply the weight by four - or the number of wheels on your vehicle - to determine your vehicle’s maximum load-carrying capacity.

Load Rating Table

Sometimes the maximum load (for example, 1060 kg) will be stamped into the sidewall so that you don't have to decipher the load rating. Remember: never install tires with a lower load-carrying capacity than the tires that were installed on your vehicle by the manufacturer!

Load Range:

The load rating is a measure of the tire's strength — its ability to hold air pressure under load.

The load rating influences the sidewall strength of a vehicle tire. If a tire has a load rating that is too low, the handling of the vehicle could become unstable as the sidewall buckles under the vehicle's weight. Conversely, a much higher load rating than needed can dramatically harshen ride quality.

The recommended load rating for a vehicle's tires can be found in its owner's manual. It is also normally affixed to a sticker located on one of the vehicle's door jams. If you are replacing tires supplied with the vehicle from the manufacturer, the load rating written on the tires is an appropriate guide.

Sidewall:

There are other codes on some tires that provide you with additional information, some of which are specific to light truck tire applications. Some of the other codes that you might find on your tires include:

LT = Stands for light truck application. Example: LT235/85R16
C, D or E = Load range indication for light truck applications
REIN = Reinforced
OWL = Outlined White Letters
RWL = Raised White Letters
ORWL = Outlined Raised White Letters
B, BLK, BW, BSW = Blackwall or Black Sidewall
W, WW, WSE – Whitewall or White Sidewall
XNW = Extra Narrow White Width
XL = Extra Load Capacity

Section Width:

The linear distance between the outside sidewalls of an inflated tire without any load (exclusive of protruding side ribs and decorations).

Sidewall Aspect Ratio:

The ratio between tire height and width.

Important note on quoted prices:

Prices quoted do not include additional charges for sales taxes, mounting and balancing, valve stems, tire disposal fees, state recycling fees, tire protection plans and other charges. Prices may vary from one store to another or from one date to another. Tires listed may not be in stock at the identified store. Prices listed were received from individual stores and have not been verified by Big O Tires. Please call the Big O Store of your choice for up-to-date information and details on pricing, additional charges and product availability.

How Are Tire Sizes Specified?
The first number describes width of the tire (section), the second number describes the aspect ratio (profile), and the third number the wheel diameter (rim size).
Alignment makes a big difference in how long tires last, how much gas you use, and steering and safety. When you buy new tires, we'll make sure they're properly aligned with a free alignment check!

What is TPMS?


TPMS is an electronic system that monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are under- or over-inflated. Proper tire inflation not only boosts your safety, but also the life of the tire and its fuel economy.

TPMS

Some components of the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced due to wear and corrosion over time. Our TPMS rebuild kit includes all the necessary parts to service your TPMS sensor and keep this important safety feature functioning properly.
