Tire Opinion

Im in the market for some new tires. Just wondering what your guys opinions were. Im looking to get some 35x12.50x15's for my scrambler. Im still deciding between cooper discoverer stt's, km2's, or general grabbers. Basically just want a reasonably priced tire with a decent agressive tread on it. Opinions?

KM2's all day everyday if you want a MT type tire.
Another good choice are goodyear Duratracs.

Are you looking for an MT or an AT tire? I just got the General Grabber AT2s in 235/75R15 and I'm really happy with them. Haven't had a chance to take em in the dirt yet, but on the snow and ice they're great.

Then go with the KM2's.
I know quite a few people who run them and they absolutely love them.
And I've read many reviews on them since thats what I'm going to get when I get new tires, and I have yet to read one bad review.

After googling it to figure out what you're talking about its apparently a song. I was referencing the battle cry of the lost boys from "Hook". Judging by the age of the OP, I'm guessing he was too.

I don't remember it being called that, but then again, I haven't seen that movie in ages.

Old style or the new Kevlars? The new MT/R K's will hands down walk all over the KM2's.With your location you will hate the KM2's in the winter,they suck offroad also.

I have STT's and love them. I don't have first hand knowledge of how they handle snow, but have been told by people in the north that they are good for that.

Anybody have any good places to buy tires? Ive been looking at a bunch of different websites, so far the best deal I've found is a set of discoverers for 904 shipped.
