It’s brand new on the market, and everyone wants to know just how good it is. Yup, it’s time for our BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3 review.
- More grip
- Even more durable
- Even better performance than before
- It’s not cheap
Yes, BFG’s amazing mud terrain tire just got even better.
We’ll get into the specifics of the changes to the tire over the KM2, but first let’s talk about what those changes mean in the real world.
For starters, there’s 5 percent better mud traction. Plus, it gets 8 percent better rock traction. And finally there are the sidewalls that are 27% more resistant to punctures.
So how is all this possible?
Increased mud traction comes as a result of the Terrain-Attack tread design with huge tread blocks and “mud-phobic” bars on the sides, that help remove compacted mud from the tread, to allow for more fresh-muddy grip.
As for traction on rocks, the KM3’s Krawl-TEK tire compound (don’t blame us for the name) gives even more grip. Specific for rock-crawling, the tire has large spaces between the treads. Called the “Linear Flex Zone” they are designed to absorb objects when driving aired-down.

And then there’s the added puncture-resistance. BFG has applied its CoreGard Max Technology from its KR3 tire to the new KM3. A thicker sidewall prevents punctures while the tread that flows over from the tire’s surface and onto the shoulder adds an extra protective layer to keep sharp rocks away from that same sidewall.
This is race-proven technology, as BFG used this innovation to help it win the Baja Championship.
