i see mostly Km2's and MtrK's out on the trails than most others on the trails we run. At least here in AZ i think the kevlar helps a lot on side wall damage. Though much is tire placement. It does seem is see many more other tire get side walls ripped out than the Good years.
24k on mine in two years and never a flat. They are rather chewed up, but look to be good for a couple more seasons. they come in 15"s for like 225$ for 35"s can not beat the price in the 15 flavor.
they have got fairly loud too with age. i dont care though. just as long as they stay aired up.
I vote for the MTR/K's. They are a designed desert tire and stick to all the rocks I throw at em. The BFG's for the mud. The grabbers look cool. But haven't seen them much other than desert racing and fufu pickups.

The MTR is a good bit lighter and so it's probably better for a DD. MTR is a legend off-road which makes it enticing. The grabbers are a one trick pony. If you are in the desert a lot it might be a good choice.

i paid like 42$ a rim 15x8 steel they are beat to h3ll as well. we run only rocks ,mostly harder trails as well. DD drive it and drive it long distance as well. summer trips to Cali to run the Con and Dusy. the tires have never let me down... the jeep that is another story...................
my tires out lasted. the motor, the clockspring, the cd player, the ball joint etc etc.....but we use this as trail jeep for the clubs we are in so its had a rather hard start in life, its a Jeep. So yep its just parts....
If you don't want any rubbing or steering stop adjustments, Get 3.75" BS. Some run 4", 4.5", But they all rub and require reducing the turning radius. I run 3.5" BS on a 8" wheel and kevlars and have had no problems. They also don't stick out too far either, If that's a factor.
YJ, TJ, XJ, ZJ..... Too many Jeeps!
I had the mind debate also for awhile,mines a dd and I wanted a tire for everything after all the research...I did go MTRKs there siped,good in mud,sand,snow and not to bad on noise. At least from what I've been in, can't say anything about rocks not my thing..
