Review of the BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX
The BFGoodrich Krawler is a monster of a Radial tire. BFGoodrich specifically designed this tire to excel in the world of rockcrawling, while still giving the driver performance in a variety of terrains, including on paved road. The Krawler's tread design is an aggressive, strong one with massive lugs, super-strong sidewalls, and an extra shoulder lip of rubber around the bead to help protect the rim and aid the tires resistance to popping off the bead. At low pressures, the sidewall and tread flexes readily and surprisingly well for such a massive tire, enveloping obstacles as the sidewalls bulge. Tread lugs extend way down the sidewall offering protect as well as helps to increase traction when sidewall bite can make the difference on rock and in mud. Where the BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX excels best is on the rocks. When aired down to the single digits, the chunky lugs of soft compound grip big time on all types of rocks from the knarly to the slick. Sharp rocks and wood spikes offer little problem as the Krawler resists tears and punctures to an impressive degree. In the mud the Krawler isn't at its best. The tread doesn't self clean as well as some of the other mud performers on the market unless generous amounts of throttled wheelspin are applied. On the wooded trails this tire does very well, getting good bite the varying conditions. In the sand the Krawler bites strong and will dig if too much throttle is applied although flotation is good. On the street, the BFGoodrich Krawlers perform better than most aggressive tires with a somewhat smooth ride. This is in part due to their construction as a radial tire and the staggered tread design. However they will still let you know they're down there as some lug slap will be noticed. As far as their look, the Krawler has a very aggressive appearance and will definitely turn heads.  Sidewall Plys: 4 Nylon. Tread Plys: 4 Nylon, 2 Steel.  Load Rating: C. Available sizes: 35x13.50R15/C, 37x12.50R17/C, 37x12.50R17/C

Introducing the world's best rock-crawling tire. Ideal for extreme terrain conditions and the winner of multiple rock-crawling championships. Features an ultra-aggressive deep-lug tread pattern and one of the most puncture resistant sidewalls of any tire we've ever offered. Available in two sizes: molded (37X12.50R17 and 35X13.50R15) or grooveable (37X12.50R17). Our ultimate off-road tire, designed for awesome performance on the rocks and in the dirt. Limited quantities available in 35- and 37-inch sizes. 

World champion rock crawling performance.
What it is: Xtreme traction off-road tire that has won more rock crawling championships than any other tire.

  • Ultra-aggressive deep-lug tread pattern
  • Four nylon sidewall plies
  • Race-spec carcass
  • Brawny, solid sidewall lugs
  • X-tra traction tread compound
  • Rim protector

Benefits:

Comments:
I have used this tire in the past. If you're doing nothing but mud then its not for you, but if you do a rounded type of wheeling then I highly recommend them. I siped the ones that I had, and the traction on rocks and terra firma was beyond what you would expect. Wayyyyyyyy beyond. Its like spidermans hands gripping to the side of a wall. On road, they're a little noisy, and wear like a Swamper radial, but I used them as a daily driver for two years and they still had a bit of tread left when I ditched them. I would have bought them again, but I've moved, and there is absolutely nothing but mud where I now live (except now, cause it's 20 below 0). I will be running Iroks next season, when the snow melts.

Happy wheelin !

Comments:
This is a great tire for anybody who wants an aggressive looking tire but don't want to sacrifice on- road performance to much. 
This tire wont handle as good as an all terrain tire on wet pavement but handles good enough.  This tire along with Sipeing  them will get you better traction on the road. This tire is extremely tough believe me I hit a curb going 35 and didn't blow the tire.
