If you enjoy very loud, aggressive tires then go for them, but they aren't worth the money if you are going to be driving it on the road for long amounts of time!
They balance like crap, when you accelerate the truck hops left to right, because the tires themselves aren't perfectly round.

I would recommend them to someone that is driving their truck to and from a mud pit once in a while. Not worth it if you are daily driving your truck. From the season I had them they preformed well in the mud.

Does anybody have opinions on running a 33 inch tall, 10.5 width KM2? I have 33/12.5 all terrains right now and i want to know what the differences i would notice would be. Whether it was wheeling or just driving on the street. Theyre dirt cheap on discounttire.com

i love the skinny KM2's... put a set on a taco a while back, looked sick. They will dig to china if you let them, so just be aware of that for your wheeling style. tall and skinny is good in snow and mud that has a bottom (that you want to get to), wide is good for ice (or better) and good for thick mud that you don't want to dig deep into. IMHO a 12.50 is perfect, but 10.50's cut down on the weight. One good thing to look at w/ a 12.50 is you have a better bead holding capability on a 7 or 8" rim vs a 10.50 tire.

Whats the biggest tire i can fit comfortably on my stock xj all the tires for my stock xj look like they belong to much on the street. i was thinking of getting the 215.75.15 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 if they will fit

Didn't we lock you in a dumpster once??

i just bought a pair of Hercules 33" and have only had them for <100 miles. want something bigger. how much do i ask for my Hercules and what tire do i go with? i want 37" and one great for mud/rocks. not worried about road noise/handling. i figure i can get used to that.

going off road is like being married, its great until you bang something you shouldnt.

Rolling on some 36" Swamper TSL's, but really want to go down to a 35 M/T. Checking out the BFG m/t's and they look pretty good. Hopefully it will calm down the ride too and keep me out of the ditch.

What do you think the best mud terrain for daily driver is currently?

I think all the mt tires will do their job offroad for my weekend warrior excursions but I travel over an hour to school and back once a week plus driving at home. So what is everyone opinion on best for my money on performance and wear? I have km 1's and I am so impressed they've got half tread after two years. But I hear bad things about km2's so I'm not sure what to do.. Thanks.

I want to add my tires that I just bought for my DD 83 jeep CJ7. I bought some 31x10.50's Maxxis Buckshot mudders, and I am very very happy with them, I will buy them again, they do awesome offroad and on the rocks. Just took them out Saturday when they still had blue lettering on the tires. They no longer have the blue lettering is all I have to say. But they do great down the highway, and am very happy with them.

Trxus MT

You can't beat the Trxus MT
It has more zipping than any other off road tire. Super good in mud, swamp, rocks, snow, ice, and you don't even hear them on the highway. Very quiet. Super traction because of it's soft compound, but tough. I've run mine through everything I just mentioned and will get them again when they wear out. They are good for about 50k miles

I just love to go where no man has gone before.
Rock climbing, in marshes, atv trails, mud, tundra etc.

what bad things have you heard about the KM2's? I had the KM's and loved them, and i have nothing bad to say about the KM2's. They are better in all categories except for they are a bit louder on the street (not that much louder though)
