Michelin North America’s BFGoodrich brand will fit the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor with its All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires as original equipment.
Engineered with BFGoodrich’s off-road motorsports technology, KO2 tires offers toughness, tread life and traction for harsh off-road conditions such as gravel, dirt, rock, mud and snow, BFG said. The Raptor’s KO2 tires were co-developed with Ford engineers and tuned specifically for the truck’s performance requirements, the tiremaker adds.
BFGoodrich Tires worked with Ford this week as a technical partner at the official media launch of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor this week in Borrego Springs, Calif.
Additionally, Ford Performance entered the new F-150 Raptor in the fully stock truck class at the SCORE Baja 1000 and finished the race under the 36-hour time limit on KO2 tires.
