2014 F150 FX4 Crew Tires?

Anyone used BFG KO2? I am looking at these in LT275/55/20 and they are 8-Ply and Toyo Open Country A/T 2 which are 10 Ply in 295/55/20

I have no experience with these tires, but curious as why you are swapping tires already on a '14. Are you using the stock tires still? What are they? How many miles? What are your goals for the new tires?


If I'm reading the manufacturers sites correctly, the Toyo has a 2403 max weight capacity and the BFG 2680

I have the soft P275/55/20 Pirelli Scorpions and they have Road Wiggle and sway very annoying.

I am looking at 295/55/20 BFG's and Toyo, the BFG comes in at 3000 and Toyo's are in the mid 3600's

I put a set of the KO2's on my F-150 this winter. I had a set of the original KO's on there that were out of tread. I like them a lot. Its a truck - you wouldn't mistake the ride for a Lexus, but it rides/handles nicely when towing. Its an off-road tire with an aggressive tread, so the down side is wear life. I got about 35,000 miles out of the original KO's. Supposedly the KO2's are a little better as far as on road tread wear - we'll see. I don't off-road, but I bought these mainly because they exceed the specs for snow tires. These tires are outstanding in the snow.

And the KO2's have gotten a lot of compliments for they way they look, so you get the "cool factor" as well...

Hello, I upsized to 285-55-20 Michelin AT/2S and in the winter I get a lot of ice build up I have to chip away. I would check you clearance for 295 prior to purchase. The P series has to go!! No question. I sold mine on Kijji to a Chev owner for $300 bucks used! lol


EDIT- I use stock rims and run 65 psi year round. may up to 70 psi next for summer.

I don't see a 295/55-20 on the BFG web site. 3000lbs is a 275/60-20

Definitely following the input...faced with the same decision but I do need to do a lot of highway driving. I mainly want the stiffer sidewalls of the lt tire...not too concerned about off road.

I had the old BFG A/T and not towing got 60-70K. I may just go with the standard sized 275/55/20 and putting 2.5" spacers in the front, Ford dealer is doing it for me. Pirelli's aren't bad for everyday driving but they are too soft for towing, I only do highway and some off-road at campgrounds but not 4wheeling. I got a good price and may get them end of May Before my three long trips with my Roo

I'm using the BFG T/A KO's on. '14 f-150 EB too. OEM Michillin tires got flats when on ranch roads. The final straw was a sidewall flat then switched to the BFG. I have 3k# on the steer axle, 4k# on the rear, and 5600# on loaded trailerr inc WD hitch. Tire dealer recommended 65# air pressure for rear tires. So far have 10k miles on the tires and feel good about them. No flats, firm ride and very little noise. I agree with above post...these are LT tires not P tires.

I have the KO2's on my '13 F150 and really like them. I've gotten several compliments on the looks as well. Not the best pic, but all I've got at the moment.
