The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor pickup truck will roll on the latest all-terrain tire from the BFGoodrich brand, the All-Terrain T/A K02. It’s the latest fitment to spring from the official partnership entered into in 2015 between the auto maker and tire manufacturer.
The F-150 Raptor, part of the Ford performance lineup, is the latest example of collaboration among Ford and BFGoodrich engineers to create custom-tailored tire constructions and compounds that maximize vehicle performance. The F-150 Raptor’s version of the KO2 tire was co-developed with Ford engineers and tuned specifically for the truck’s unique performance requirements.

BFGoodrich has long used the Baja Mexico peninsula as a proving ground for its products. This year, Ford Performance entered the new F-150 Raptor in the fully stock truck class at the SCORE Baja 1000, the toughest off-road race on the planet. The F-150 Raptor finished the race under the 36-hour time limit using only one set of standard BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires.
Michelin or BFGoodrich tires are featured on every current vehicle in the Ford Performance lineup: the Ford GT, Mustang Shelby GT350, Mustang Shelby GT350R, Focus RS, Focus ST, and Fiesta ST each come equipped with Michelin tires, and now the F-150 Raptor comes with BFGoodrich tires.

Since its debut in 2014, Mitchelin says the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 has sold more than 5 million tires in North America.
