Bfg km2..

Hey guys..it's about time to renew my tires and i love the looks of the bf Goodrich mud terrain km2..but I was wonderin how they hold up on the road since I'm still in school and mostly drive it on the road. Ive seen a lot of l keeps that have em and I actually own a full size Chevrolet with a set of these on it..absolutely love em..

I was just wondering how they held up on a jeep?

They're good tires... On my short list of options.

They are great. The road noise isn't too bad and they wear good.

If you're happy with them on a full size truck, you'll be very happy with them on a Jeep. I've found I get almost twice the wear mileage on my BFG's on my jeep as I get on my 2500HD.

Got them on my 3/4 ton gmc. 19k miles and still going strong. Tons of tread left. Great in the mud. Road noise is the best I have had to date. Just don't mud and catch concrete because they are sticky and catch traction and will tear them up. Ill be putting them on my YJ (35's) soon

I have them on my Yj. Great road manners and great sidewall flex. They've held up to everything I have thrown at them thus far.

Stay on the street and you won't be dissappointed since you don't have bad winters in Alabama.


They where worthless offroad. Wouldn't clean out, wouldn't dig, and had no lateral traction. They are pretty much worthless at the sight of water. This was a common sight for the KM2's. I wanted them gone before I made it to 3/4 tread. At 1/2 tread, they where removed and replaced. I'll never consider running them again.

WoW that's a scathing review.

I myself am a Wrangler MT/R guy, however my buddy has 33" km2's on his taco and i have been very impressed with them.


p.s. don't tell anyone here at GoodYear4 i had nice things to say about kn2's.

I have 31's on my YJ. I have had this set for I don't know how many years and miles. I just know a lot. They are holding up great. Like most everyone else has said, great traction, great road wear, road noise is not bad once they get broke in, and they look good. I would recommend them. Once these wear out I will be replacing them with another set.

I don't see how, but allot of people love'em.

I'm not happy about the amount of money that was wasted on them. They where junk compared to the tires before them (Pro Comp Xterrains) and they are Junk compared to the tires that replaced them (Nitto Mud Grapplers).

I guess it depends on the use. I don't go in the mud if I don't have to but they grab very well on the rocks. Plus I drive long distances to wheel so road wear and noise is a concern. Just depends on your application.

Nitto mud grapplers are some of the worst tires I have ever seen. Ever. I was side by side with a brand new rubicon and my km2's grabbed the rocks where his nittos forced him to lock the rear axle. Yes it was the same line and yes we were both running 35's.

I have the exact opposite review of my KM2's, they have great traction on every surface and I ran lots of south Florida sugar cane mud and they always cleaned out.

Also ran them in sugar sand and south Alabama clay with no issues whatsoever.
