Price: $1,050.00
Pros: Excellent grip and on-road manners.
Cons: Noisy at high speeds on road.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Cost me 1050 for 5 tires mounting and balancing at a local shop. Could have gotten them cheaper online but by the time I paid shipping and handling plus mounting and balancing it would have cost me more, by about $150.

They are excellent during trail riding and mud. Haven't had a chance to try them in snow and ice since we don't get much around here, but the small amount of rock I've been on they have been VERY well behaved.

So far they are wearing really well, and have very good road manners. For once I buy a mud tire that plays it's roll off road and acts like it should on road. Decently quiet on the road till you start getting a slight roar about 50mph, gets progressively louder as you speed up but never to the point you can't talk to the people riding with you, unlike many other mud tires.

For the price and features this is, in my opinion, the best all around tire for any Jeeper out there.

Price: $1,000.00
Pros: Excellent road manners and barely audible. Performs in the dirt and doesn't complain when I air them down to 10lbs.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought five (33-12.5 R15's) of them to replace the 32" Dunlop's. What a difference. Wish I'd bought the BFG's the first time around. They've got about 15k on them now and still have about nearly 9/16" tread depth. I'm hoping to get 45k out of them. It's daily driver and the BFG's are at home on the pavement as they are off road. I run them with 28lbs on the street and 10/11 lbs off road.

Price: $190.00
Pros: Great ride VERY low road noise Look great Phenomenal traction
Cons: Slight rumbling at idle-speeds, but to be expected from the tread blocks
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've only had the tires for a few hundred miles so far, but I love them already. I'll be able to comment further once I put some longer miles on them (long term wear, etc). But basically nothing negative to say so far.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Excellent traction compared to the old KM1. Climbs over the snow mounds with ease (w/o lockers) and the dirt/mud performance amazed me.
Cons: I have yet to find any. The sound is there but is far less than the older KM's
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got these in the 33x12.5 size right before my trip to the Northwoods Overland Park in northern Wisconsin. The trip took 6 hours to get there of highway driving. The tires handled well at 65mph and the noise was low compared to my '91 yj that had 35" KM1. Once at the park, the tires did excellent on the "yellow" and "green" trails. The area had 8 inches of rain over the previous week and was still pouring so i did not bother trying the hardest trail. The tires chugged the mud well and the winch was needed only twice on two very steep mud slopes (no lockers). All in all I love the way the tires look and perform.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Haven't had them long enough to wheel much with them, but everyone says they're good. EDIT -- I've wheeled them; they're awesome.
Cons: They make a little more noise and cause the Jeep to handle different than stock, but that's what mud tires do. I don't have any experience with other tires, but I've heard others are WAY worse than the KM2s. EDIT -- They get a pretty good howl going on the right road surface, at about 33 mph.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: First, the price I put is the price per tire.

I got the KM2s because I wanted mud tires on my Jeep, and I'd heard nothing but good about the KM2s. I had a little trouble getting them, because they're so new, and one guy at the shop told me they'd be back ordered for a month, but another guy found them through a different supplier.

They look BAD!!!!! (In a good way).

On road, they do hum a bit. First time I started driving in my Jeep, my reaction was 'oh-oh, am I gonna like this??', but after just over a week of owning them, I've done 250 miles on the interstate, and the hum doesn't bug me at all. Handling is a bit different, but not bad. I think it's mainly that the tires just grab stuff (including the concrete) better than the stock ones did. It's an adjustment, but like I said, you get used to it pretty quick.

I haven't had too much chance to wheel yet, as I've owned them just over a week, but the little I did off road, there is ABSOLUTELY no comparing these puppies with stock tires. The ride off road is so much smoother, you skid around less, etc. I love 'em.

EDIT -- I went out with a bunch of guys a month or two ago. LOTS of mud. Everyone running A/Ts was getting stuck right and left. Other people were surprised at how well I did, and I'm pretty sure it was mostly the tires.

The only thing I will say about the KM2s (and this applies to all outsized tires) is that you WILL notice what feels like less power. It's just the gear ratio, and can be fixed with different gears, but it is a little disconcerting. If you don't know that's going to happen, you could get a little surprised by it. I saw it coming, and I was a little surprised by how much power I lost. But like I said, change the gear ratio, and you're fine.

All in all, I love my new tires EDIT -- 6 months later, this still holds, except now it's more like I wouldn't buy any other tire.

Price: $220.00
Pros: Krawler-like tread pattern
Cons: Price
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These tire are a great cross between the old mud terrain and the krawler - the tread pattern is very close to the crawler and works well on the rocks as well as the mud.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Excellent traction, cleans out well
Cons: Shortage of supply when I ordered. I'll buy them again but look around to find the supply in advance.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These have been a good upgrade from my MTRs. The MTRs would not clean out causing the tires to become caked with mud. The KM2s clean out much better and behave very well on road.
