My bad, the site says they're measured at 34.8 not 34.5. I will measure mine when I get home.

If you're towing 15k you better have something a little heavier duty than a 6 ply 35 psi tire..not to mention a rig capable of towing it.

Your point remains valid, however.

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.

You are doing it wrong What do you air down to?
My 33s are awesome in deep snow, mud, rocks , street, everything!!
I usually air down to 12 psi. Anything lower my diffs drag. I am getting the same tire in 35 when these wear out.
Sorry youve had bad luck with such a good tire

I mean that all BFG tires ie T/A KO, KM2, T/A KDW etc are known to run small in certain sizes. I guess that statement could have been confusing, I don't get too worried about how true to size a tire runs though just as long as it performs.

I'm just someone who was very dissapointed in my BFG KM2's.

Thats a picture of a 3/4 ton truck going after a load of firewood. You don't air down to haul a load.

With all things being equall, they performed the worst.

Slade... actually ive had 3 friends try xterrains over the years, one of which is currently got them on a jk. Guess what they're under a year old and all 4 are worn to the wear bars from street driving. Ive personally seen many different companies tire faluires and shortcomings. Not all radial tires are equal at all but a km2 and mtrk are at the same level. As far as sidewall strength i was referring to you arent gonna have a stupendessly stronger tire unless it weighs more like a pitbull rocker. To say km2s are garbage since you got stuck in an aired up 3/4 ton truck is silly. Guess you dont get the joke about the thornbirds.

How would you like to intelligently discuss tires we have personal experience with?

I've ran them on a 3/4 ton truck too and they still performed admirably and towed my trailer with confidence

Why is it silly? Because it demanded more from the tire than a Jeep can demand? It had weight and wheel speed working against it? Airing down wasn't an option? Is it silly because another 3/4 ton truck with 285 STT's was able to walk around all over the place and the KM2's couldn't even make it up a slight incline to get loaded? Is it silly because I went the same places before I had the KM2's and the same places after I replaced the KM2. Is it Silly because I spent my money on a set of overrated tires and replaced them at 1/2 tread because they wouldn't perform as needed?



I would love to have an inteligent discussion about tires I have experience with. I'll even allow you to pick the ones you want to talk about.

As far as MT tires go, Right now I have..
Nitto Mud Grapplers
Pitbull Rockers
Goodyear MTR/K
Super Swamper Boggers
Fierce Attitude MT

In the past, Ive ran...

So much hostility geeze.... they're just differences of opinion (AND OPINION ONLY) so, to me, u guys are both right in your own respect. But real talk, you guys sound like 2 year olds... seriously. You can reference my sig for more of my opinion on that.

Anyways, I've had these pull great for me for a while and I get a very comfortable ride on the street at about 20 psi. A lot better than my old 31's ever did. Why do you guys seem to run much higher in the ~26 psi range? Are there advantages that I am unaware of? Mine seem to be wearing very well at this pressure.
