Went out fishing today and put the KM2's to work. The pics here are before the rain but the trail we were on got pretty sticky and slick after the downpour

Thank you! and I really didn't see much of a difference with the roof lights, maybe a 1 or 2 MPG at most

Love it. Those 30x9.50's really give it that custom look. Those are as big as you can go without a lift right? Did you lose any MPG's with those?

Technically yes, thats as big as you can go. Although guys will tell you that they have fit 31's and so forth, you can fit these with little to no trimming and not worry about control arm rubbing issues etc. I did notice a slight MPG loss simply because it's a bigger and heavier tire but in my eyes was well worth it
