35x12.5 km2s because they are 200 each on 4wd.com for some odd reason right now.

He's in Germany so I'm not sure if that will matter much to him

Couple guys in our club jumped onto the KM2s when they first came out. The sidewalls were not up to task for the PNW trails and after a bunch of sidewall tears they switched to the new MTRs. No tears yet in six months which include a ton of wheeling in the PNW and trips to Moab, Rubicon, and the Hammers.

If I ever go back to radials, I'd go with the MTRs.

Good luck.

I have the MT/Rs in 33". You have to air WAY down (less than 9 psi) to get any sidewall flex. They are very tough tires and are quiet on the street. Make sure you order BSW since they are asymetrical.

Had the old MT/Rs and they sucked. Loud not great in the mud and wore funny even rotating them every 3000 miles. Have 33 km2s and I love em.

I've had two flats off road this summer with my BFG ATs; a real pain to change a tire on a steep incline at 9,000 feet.

My next set of tires are going to be MT/Rs, for our local trails are full of sharp rocks and everyone I've talked to who has them has told me that they no longer get flat tires on the trail after switching to MT/Rs.

Maybe I don't do enough super technical stuff, but I have the older MTR's 33/12.50/15 with about 50% left on them and I don't like them. They have worn very well but are too loud for me.
I want the BFG A/T.
Does anyone local want to trade ?
