2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Features BFGoodrich T/A K02 Tires

Development of Tire Paralleled Truck

Jun 1, 2016
The Ford F-150 Raptor needs no introduction in the truck enthusiast community. Since the debut of the first-generation model in 2010, the Raptor has been synonymous with the ultimate in factory off-road performance. In developing the second-generation model, Ford knew it had some big shoes to fill. By all indications, the second-generation truck will top the original in almost every category. Speaking of shoes, Ford was sure not to neglect one of the most critical performance items on an off-road truck: its tires.
Working in collaboration with BFGoodrich engineers, Ford selected the T/A K02 all-terrain tire for the new Raptor. This specific fitment features an optimized tread pattern, greater tread area than the tires on the first-generation Raptor, larger sidewall lugs, and steel and nylon belts to improve compliance and comfort on-road. Ford knows we’re suckers for action footage of trucks romping around in the sand or mud and naturally obliged us with this minute-long clip.
We know the new Raptor will be the lightest, most powerful, and most capable yet. The traditionalists may bemoan the transition from large-displacement, naturally aspirated V-8 power to turbocharged, EcoBoost V-6 power. However, we expect the boosted six to deliver performance in spades. We can’t wait to get our hands on Ford’s new off-road hero.
