BFG Mud Terrain KM

Work great off-road. Not so great in the snow. Not as bad as I though on the road.

These are the new KM2s 35/12.50r15. They are light for a mud terrain yet are supposed to be very durable. Mine have not been thoroughly tested yet. But compared to the 33/12.50r15 Swamper TSL radials they replaced, it's like I went from driving a John Deere to a Cadillac. They make almost no noise and roll incredibly smooth. I can also feel the difference when decelerating. Whith the Swampers it felt like I was applying the brakes when just letting off the gas. The BFGs don't do that at all. I believe this will translate into better fuel economy due to less rolling resistance even though they are actually bigger. The tread patern is effective off road but it's on road performance is surprising for a mud terrain. It's open lug design allows water on the road to flow freely, these tires will not hydroplane, there are so many channels for water to escape that the rubber is always on the road. The same attribute provides excellent self cleaning of mud and muck from the tire surface providing you with open lugs to bite into whatever you are driving through.

These are awesome tires! I have 33x10.50x15s and couldn't be happier. They look tough and have been great in the rain and off road. Haven't been in the snow yet. Very little road noise for such an aggresive tread pattern.

The tires came with my jeep when i purchased it. They perform great on and off road minus the noise and minor vibration when comming to a stop

These are great tires. I traded up (down if you take wheel size into account) as the f-mo psuedo-AT (all seasons) that came on the jeep were not much for inspiring confidence. Got a little more sidewall. Lookign forward to wearing these out and buing the next gen replacement shoes from BFG.

quiet on road even at highway speeds. awesome grip offroad when aired down. sidewalls can take a huge beating.

My lift kit called for a 32X11.5X15 tire. The BFG Mud is a bit taller than a normal All Terrain and is actually closer to being 33 inches in diameter. The tire works well in mud, dirt, and rocks. I haven't noticed any issues in the wet. It makes a little more noise than the All Terrain, but with the windows up and a nice exhaust, you'll never notice it.

so far we have about 9k on them wearing great, not much noiser then the old bridge stone apt 2 deaulers, better then i what i though for a mud tire on a mostly street driven jeep with awd. we travel about 15k a year on the highway. they work great, but no good on snow. packed or other wise. so we bought snow tires for winter, would not go though another winter with them on..
