I read the entire link you provided and I've seen flex pics. Most any tire will flex well with beadlocks and single digit air. I'm not saying the MT/R's are bad, I'm just reiterating what users have said regarding needing to air WAY down to get the sidewall flexing. Look at that one picture in the link you provided of those 35's dropped to like 12psi ... the sidewall is not wrapping very much as it appears to me ... can be a good or a bad thing since everyone has their own tastes.

If the MT/R's flex as well as KM2's I don't know having never ran both, I simply said how well mine flex even when just dropped a few pounds below street pressure. That's relative to other tires I've had, which is why these impressed me. I think because of the "linear flex zones" built into the design? Which can be a good or a bad thing.
Ah, that is very true. Thanks for reiterating in detail. I see you're point now. Touche

$183?!?! The cheapest I can find for 33 Km2's is $230! Was it a chain store or small shop?

Price might have gone up a little in 3 and a half years.

I get flex at 30 psi, 20 psi, 15 psi, and everywhere inbetween. 33" C load range.

I vote kevalrs. I was driving on gravel slopes this past weekend and never air'd down, perfect grip, no wheel spin to get up the steepest of climbs. I just walked right up what others had to spin their tires on. This is my second set of MTRs.
