Official BFG KM2 thread

I have done a search on this and I normally only come up with ďare KM2's better then...."

I would like this thread to be just about KM2's and user experience with them. What do you like and what donít you like. How well do they do in "X" circumstance.

With the KM2's now being available in a larger selection of sizes, and with different weather conditions now upon us, I wanted more information on these tires. Since most people on this forum breath, sleep, and drive BFG MT (or ATís) KM I thought it would be good to have peoples actual experience with these tires, now having put some miles on them, have taken a few trips, and driven in snow (in some areas)

Ive got a set of 33/10.5s on my XJ , and they work great. In the trails they work awesome, on extreme angle hills and climbing steep hills, whether you want to crawl up it or pin it up the hill, youll be making it to the top. In the mud they work good, they clean out well and dont dig very hard at all they just keep moving forward. In the rocks they are amazing, the tires grip like a b!t!h and dont spin much at all.It was rainy this weekend too and they had no problem with spinning over wet logs we had to crawl over. As for on road manners they are extremly quiet and feel very safe on wet pavement, no complaints so far. I went with a couple of other Xjs this weekend and one had 35/12.5 d!ck cepek mud countrys and the other had 31/10.5 Trxus and I outwheeled them all, very impressed by these tires so far.

x2...i have the same experience (same size)

i dont know if it was rig setup or not but i had an easier time going up hills and loose stuff than ppl w/ 33x12.5 Baja Claws, and 1 hill even 36xsomethign TSL's...again, i dont know how much the tires actually effected it b/c the rigs were different setups (all wranglers tho)

im picking up a set of 33x12.5's next week for my YJ... i will let you know what i think of them... we should be getting some snow here soon so im pretty excited to see how they do in the snow...

i know a guy that has them on his ram 2500 POWER WAGON, i think they're
35x12.5x17 and he loves them! he swears day and night by the BFG name, he runs BFG a/t on every vechicle he owns.. on his wifes cummins to his daughters cummins (hes a dodge guy)...

he said the A/Ts seem to be a little better in the snow, but the KM2 is the best tire hes ever owned for any wet or muddy conditions. they got some snow at their cabin this past weekend and he said they did awesome in the snowy/mud... he has about 15k miles on them now and he said he'll probably get 25-30k out of them.. which i think is pretty good for an agressive tire like the KM2

im getting mine for $200 a peice installed + ballanced--- 33x12.5x15
