4 x 4 Australia - - Gear -

BFGOODRICH has a strong fol­low­ing in the Utv/side-by-side mar­ket, where its Baja KR2 of­fer­ing is a race-win­ner. The brand has now brought the KM3 Mud Ter­rain tyre to this seg­ment, mak­ing it avail­able in three sizes to suit the pop­u­lar ve­hi­cles used for both race and re­cre­ational use.

We were able to sam­ple the UTV KM3S on a test track in a Yamaha YXZ1000R, but our lim­ited abil­i­ties in this style of ve­hi­cle were hardly enough to put them to the test. The real rev­e­la­tion came along­side Po­laris UTV racer Si­mon Evans as he carved up the berms and blasted around the track in his race-spec RZR. Si­mon com­mented that the new tyres are cer­tainly a step up on what he’s been rac­ing on in the past and will give him an ad­van­tage in the races ahead.
