I have to throw this out there even though I'll probably catch hell for asking a dumb question...

The "reviews" portion of the tirerack website places KM2's at a substantial advantage over MTR-K's, along with a few other Mud Terrain tires. However, there is an obvious preference for MTR-K's on this forum. Is this due to different criteria among tirerack reviewers vs. jeepforum subscribers, or is something else going on?

I would not trust anything but from a forum specific to the vehicle I own (jeepforum) to determine what people consider and recommend. Not just because of the vehicle itself, but also for the intended use of the vehicle. For most of us jeepers, we put our tires to good use on all different types of terrain, not just the mall parking lot or abandoned construction sites (which by the way is trespassing and illegal). You also need to filter through the comments to find people who have had experience with the tires of interest.

I live in northern IL and I currently run 35" GY MTRKs and I honestly think these are the best tires I've owned to date. If you ever go to the Badlands in Attica IN (jagged rock, boulders, sand, mud) then these tires will do very well for you. Almost all of us IndyORV guys run the MTRKs. I've also owned 33" Interco Trxus MTs and loved them, they were the best in the snow and were also incredible on rocks. Both tires have a very soft tire compound but the TrXus MTs did not do nearly as well in the mud since they did not have the deep void tread pattern and lugs.

Anyway, OP.. as my good friend 2doorxj suggested, please do your homework first and eliminate the need for more threads on the same subject with the same questions and same answers. Good luck with your new tires
