Personally, I'm not a fan of the BFG K02 Tires that are set to come with the Bronco Raptor. I've had K02 tires on numerous vehicles and I've found other makes and models to be much better, in my opinion. With that said, what's your favorite tire and what should we consider swapping out these standard Bronco Raptor 37-inches to?

One of the best tires I've ever owned is the General Grabber ATX. I've run this tire on my 750hp F150 and it has performed flawlessly! They have incredible dry and wet traction, they've been good in the snow and the tread life has been amazing! I have almost 40,000 miles of racing, towing and all-season driving and they still look great! It looks like General offers a 37 x 12.5 R 17 in this tire and it's definitely one of my top considerations when replacing the tires on the Bronco Raptor when it comes in.




I've also heard really good things about Nitto's Trail Grappler. They look great and I've heard they perform well.


What is your top choice when it comes to 37-inch tires?

Here's a thorough review of the General Grabber A/Tx and Grabber X3.

Probably the biggest complaint I've seen with KO2 tires is once they start wearing out, they get extremely loud.

One interesting factor is the weight difference between the KO2 (65 pounds) and the Grabber ATX (72 pounds).

Have you considered the Nitto Ridge grappler?

My two biggest complaints about the KO2s were that they didn't even last 20k miles and they were SUPER slick in the rain. The wet pavement traction was horrible.

The Nitto Ridge Grapplers are a great tire. Great road manners and excellent off-road. The new Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T might be another one to consider.
