    Default BFG KO2 in the wet alternatives

    Hi have 2 year old KO2 with 40kms on them and about 50% wear.On wet surfaces they feel slippery had thought they had fixed the issues from the KO1s.

    i like the BFGs primarily for the 3ply sidewall and tougher LT Construction design formoffroad gravel work. What are the AT alternatives outside Coopers with similar traits but good in the wet?

    Kumho KL71?

    Had them on my Jeep TJ, they grip very well in the wet.

    Thanks was really avoiding going for an MT tire.

    Michelin LTX 2, very good all round tyre and not badly priced.

    Hankook is very weak in the sidewall department

    You can also look at the Dunlop AT3G.
    A friend of mine was part of the testing group and tried to destroy the tire but did not succeed.

    Came across this thread, explains why BFG ATs suck in the wet, we canít have long life, tough tires and good wet traction.

    Cooper replacement it is

    So, the lesson to be learned is: Don't buy Michelins AT either?

    I may agree with the post in general, but it is over simplifying road holding/grip.
