Are you talking about the BFG All-Terrain KO tires? Not doing good off road, what type of off road are you doing?

Radials is tire construction. All modern road rated light truck/passenger tires are Radials. Except for maybe some specialty tires, like snow tires, or serious off road tires which are bias ply tires.

You talking about these tires?

KO's ARE radial tires. They are an AT and aren't that great for mudding. Snow, ice, rock, dirt...that is what they are made for. If you want to play in the mud alot get some MTs.

the mud kings in the link wont be that good compared to the BFG At KO's. In snow and ice you want as many fingers gripping the ground as possible. That is where the sipping comes into play. Sipping is all those little slits within the tread blocks. Each sip acts like a finger.

I prefer the BFG AT KO for a daily driven rig that see multiple uses. I drive an SUV (sport UTILITY vehicle) becuase I use it for numerous functions. Towing my boat, hauling my, my gear for camping, hunting fishing excursions. Even to take the wife and kids out for an evening on the town, not too mention getting groceries. The BFG AT KO's have never let me down. Hell last year I spent the day pushing people off the road so teh plow trucks coudl get through. We got 8" of snow in less than 3 hours in hte middle of the night. People were stranded all over the place. I even pushed a cop car into a gas station parking lot to clear the road. Not too mention pulling parking lot plow trucks that got hung up free.

Short video of my truck in 8" offresh snow in an open field. I made two laps. Firstlap int eh fresh snow, second lap to snow you how deep the snow was. If you listen you can hear my keys bang off the column, it wasn't a flat field in places.

The ONLY difference between the BFGoodrich T/A and the T/A KO is that the KO series has a higher load rating per tire. I worked as a tire buster for Sears for awhile and most of these that I mounted went on the Diesels & 1 Ton haulers. If you wanna check out a good off road tire check out the General Grabber AT2, it's basically the same tread design as the BFGoodrich but General incorporates more sipes into the tread lugs so they form better to the terrain, plus i think they're cheaper! =)

You might want to do some more reseach or look at the tires again. KO is the designation for the All-terrain tires. Km is the designation for Mud tires. Both are BFG T/A KO and BFG T/A KM. the T/A defines how the tires are made.
