BFGoodrich launches off-road wiper blades

Have you ever said to yourself “dang, I wish my wiper blades were as good as my BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires. And I wish my wipers would look like my tires, too!” If you did say that to yourself, there is great news!

BFGoodrich just launched BFGoodrich Off Road Wiper Blades. The new wipers are inspired by the BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tire tread design. In their press release, BFG says that the wipers are:

“made specifically for trucks, jeeps, SUVs and 4x4s, BFGoodrich Off Road Wiper Blades are tough enough for off-road driving, with proven performance for everyday travel. Whether faced with mud, rain, snow or grime, the BFGoodrich Off Road Wiper Blades are built to improve visibility in the toughest conditions.”

Further, their design “includes durable rubber element with Weather-repel™ and SCRUB-X™ Technology”. There is also the “secure-X™ Connector for easy and secure installation”. What is being said here is that the wipers are designed to wipe stuff off your windshield better than other wipers and they are designed to attach easily, too.

In a geeky way, I kind of like this. Sure, it’s ridiculous marketing thing but I can totally see people buying this. Bonus points if it actually works as good as the tires do in all weather.  You can order your off-road wipers at, hold on to your recovery points, offroadwipers.com.

And I absolutely think that there should be Michelin Pilot Sport 4S wiper blades, too!

  1. 40 dollars each? Great if they work, but the biggest difference I see is the cosmetic tire-track cover.

    1. … a feature which looks ridiculous. I’d be embarrassed to have these on any vehicle. I prefer form derived from function.

    1. Years ago, the BFG ATs (pre-KO2) I had on my CJ were bad to hold onto gravel at low speeds and then launch them into the wheel wells when I got up to highway speeds. However, I haven’t had a single issue with that on my current KO2s. Granted, I don’t take the minivan out wheelin’ like I did the Jeep, but I’ve been on gravel many times and waited in vain for the “thunk”. These just don’t grab rocks like the old ATs.

      1. I HATE the KO2s we have on our Wrangler. I’ve NEVER had a tire throw gravel the way these do. They look awesome – arguably the best looking tire in my opinion. But the rocks are absolutely insufferable. Maybe our gravel is crushed to a different size than yours, but these tires just plain suck. When I turn on the tar, I have to drive at least a mile down the road at less than 30mph to clear out the tread.

        1. Interesting, I do not have that issue at all. Though my trails, to be fair, are much more dust than gravel. I’d be curious to take my truck to a gravel path to see if I get the same issue.

  2. Adorable how marketeers throw testosterone at a product and all that sticks is an “X” in the brand name. *growls*

      1. Manliest console ever. I am giving Chinese factories five minutes to copy the above, and expand to Helly Kitty patterns as well as the odd Centennial-branded wipers the market so urgently demands.

  3. I see that “tread pattern” as a bad thing. Something for snow and ice to hold on to an build up, as well as mud and other junk.

  4. See the dog and butterfly
    Up in the air she likes to fly
    Dog and butterfly
    Below he just had to try
    But he just fell back down to the warm soft ground, laughing
    He don’t know why, he just don’t know why
    Dog and butterfly

  5. Silicone beam wipers from PIAA. Expensive (but $25-30, not $40 each) but provide a water beading coating and long life, not just a questionable aesthetic.
