The terra grapplers are worth considering. They are really good on mud and relatively quiet on the highway.

All depends how you will use them. Trail only? Street driven also? Real soupy mud pits? Rocky, muddy trails?

I myself have KM2s and really like them but when it comes time to upgrade to 35" there is one I am seriously thinking about going with...... Nittos Trail Grapplers , they are more aggresive than the Terra Grapplers but are way quieter than and not as aggressive as the Mud Grapplers and from the reviews are getting outstanding mileage and reliability for a mud tire.

Honestly, I would have bought them them when I got the KM2s but they didn't come in the size I wanted.

I've had 3 sets of terra grapplers. As soon as the stock tires wear out on my pickup (DD), I am going to put another set on they are awesome on the street, in the rain, snow, sand , and dirt. While they are one of the best at what they do, like most all terrains, they suck at what they don't , which is mud.

You may be talking about the trail grappler.

If it is a daily driver/weekend warrior, I would strongly suggest looking at the Mickey Thompson mtz, toyo open country mt, and good year mtr.
