    I have noticed a problem with my BFGoodrich KO2 tyres purchased in March last year.

    After inspection the other day I noticed the centre area of the tread on 3 of my tyres is starting to crack/split.
    At the moment the splits are not very deep possibly 2mm.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Unfortunately I am unable to post a picture {photobucket doesn’t seem to work now) but after investigating a little deeper I managed to find some images on the net with people in the states having the same problem as I have.

    The rep is going to inspect them this week so I am hoping for a positive outcome.

    Not something I expected to happen after such favourable reviews.

    Seen them delaminates so many times. I'm not a fan of them for that reason.

    I switched from BFG to Bridgestone. The Bridgies are better on the road but have worn much faster than the BFGs and aren't as good in rough conditions. I was going to go back to BFG but not so sure now, what tyres do you use?

    Interesting comments there, I had KO1's, for four years, never had de-lamitation issues, found them great onroad and offload. Mates have them, and love them to, different experiences for different people I guess.

    I've run a fleet of 4wd for quite a number of years and have a couple mates who have literally hundreds in their fleet up around the mines.
    Most of us had similar issues with BFG. Even when giving a new model a chance it always bit us when they caused issues.

    Coopers also has similar issues. But no where near as bad.

    Mickey Thompson have given us all a great run.

    Currently testing some hankook on the hwy vehicles.

    We've run the toyo on the stadium super trucks for a couple years. They are pretty good. Haven't yet tried them on fleet vehicles as we are still testing some others. Certainly on the list.

    I've had the Toyo AT II's for over a year now. They have been great on and off road.
    I know I got a pretty good deal from local Tyreright store, $1100 for 5 tyres and free rotation and balances at 5000km then every 10000kms thereafter.
    20000km and hardly any wear. After they replaced the Dunlop Graptreks, it felt like I had a new suspension.
