Our friends at BFGoodrich, the leaders in producing tires for off-road enthusiasts, are celebrating National Donut Day with their latest donut shaped creation, the Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 Tires. These donuts aren’t very tasty, even when glazed in mud, but they do have a proven history of winning and performing post-race victory donuts. Check out their line-up infographic below for where the KM3 slots into the Dirty Dozen :

BFGoodrich® Tires has introduced the Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3, its next-generation off-road tire for extreme conditions. Long known as the leading brand for hard-core off-road enthusiasts, BFGoodrich has introduced technologies into the new tire that improve climbing, traction and toughness in the mud and over rock.
Representing the latest innovation in BFGoodrich’s 40-year history of advancing off-road tire technology, the Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3 tire is must-have equipment for those who need tires to perform in nearly any off-road scenario.
“The KM3 tire is essential equipment for serious off-road enthusiasts. We designed this tire for extreme toughness and traction,” said Harold Phillips, global general manager of the BFGoodrich brand. “Whether building for off-road fun or for extreme capability to reach outdoor activities, this tire was made to take drivers anywhere they want to go.”
Made to Mud
The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3 has 5 percent better mud traction than its predecessor1. “Mud-Phobic” bars on the tire’s shoulders are designed to release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy or soft soil conditions. The tire’s Terrain-Attack tread pattern includes massive tread blocks designed to deliver incredible grip from any angle of approach.
Built to Climb
The advanced Krawl-TEK compound in the BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3 delivers 8 percent better rock traction1 that enhances grip on rock and other slick surfaces. The tire’s Linear Flex Zone allows it to envelop objects at reduced inflation for even more grip when climbing. The Traction-Armor Sidewall Sculpture and notched shoulder design also help boost traction capabilities in soft soil and mud.
Created to Conquer
The BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3 was designed to conquer the toughest off-road challenges with extreme sidewall protection, pinch shock resistance and chip-and-tear resistance on gravel. Its sidewalls are 27 percent tougher, thanks to CoreGard Max race- proven technology derived from the BFGoodrich® Baja T/A® KR3 desert-racing tire line. This technology helps prevent splitting or puncturing with increased thickness that protects the critical sidewall failure zone.
The BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3 also offers solid street performance and acceptable on-road noise levels for the rides to and from the trail.
