Ford has released a new video of the upcoming 2017 Raptor to highlight the truck’s standard BFGoodrich all-terrain T/A KO2 tires. 

The tires used on the Raptor feature a unique tread pattern which is meant to maximize the contact patch and to increase grip. Steel and nylon belts are used to make the tires more comfortable on the street.

Ford also used a set of these tires on its Best in the Desert race truck to prove just how tough the stock tires are on the new Raptor.

Ford’s entire performance lineup, including the Focus RS, Shelby GT350 and Ford GT, all use specially designed BFGoodrich tires.
