KM2 vs Krawler KX

BFG Krawler T/A KX Part#: 44690 35X13.50R15
BFG Mud Terrain T/A KM2 Part#: 07737 35X12.50R15
my rims: 15x10 Rebel Outlaw II 5-114.3 5x4.5

i run BFG A/T now and i wanna change to km2 or krawlers but i have a few questions.
- what are these like in snow/slush/rain highways or on sand beaches and mud?
- do my rims have enough offset so the krawlers wont rub?
- is the krawlers loud on the highway and how ruff?
- if anyone got pics of the krawler set up would be nice

Get some MT/R kevlars Aggressive yet quiet on the highway, atleast quieter than the noise the softtop makes

Check out www.shineattire.com.

Navigate to Marketing > Motorsports > Rock Krawler

Those are 37s though, but hope that gives you an idea.

Krawlers suck on everything but rocks. if you want a pure bread trail tire that can run rocks, mud, dirt then the road I'd look into the pitbull radial rockers, or KM2s for a little tamer ride.

I have never run the KX but the km2 is a great tire. Great on the road smooth & quiet. They also work very well in the mud & sand. I have not gone in the snow because I live in Hawaii.

I ran 35-13.50 krawlers for awhile as my off road/DD. I put 25k on them and they still had more tread than a new km2. They rode smooth and balance easy IMO but loud as hell.

Off road i didn't see too much rock, And they did well in everything including mud. Only reason I'm not running them now is the kevlars are just as strong sidewall wise.
But never got a flat or popped a bead and i ran them on 15x10" 3.75BS wheels. They are well worth the money and can take anything you can throw at them. But i needed a quieter tire and just as strong and the kevlars have fit the bill so far.

I'm running 35x12.50 17 km2's and I have no complaints. They have 45k on them and have a decent amount of tread left. They ride and drive well. Off-road they've done well too. I plan on getting them again when these are finished.
