Re: Mud Country or BF KM2???

I love the KM 2's , great on road, off road, in mud, on rocks, low noise, seem to last (I'm at almost 20,000 so far on 2 of them)....BUT...the sidewalls seem to cut fairly easily. I cut 2 of them on one trip (very expensive trip!). I don't know if the others are any better, but if you're in the rocks a lot you might want to research sidewall strength a bit.

I forgot about u and your sidewall issues.

It's not worth doing if you can't drop some f-bombs along the way!

Don't listen to brock about his bias, he says he has one and does not explain.
she is my nemesis...do not listen to her but here is my bias....

when i was younger...before pitbullcruiser was out of diapers...i used BFG AT religiously. After multiple ruined tires from sidewalls being punctured by railroad ties, rocks, cactus thorns, bush stubs from bush hogging fields, oyster shell bank in mud, an old piece of barb wire, and get this....the bone from an animal I ran over one night on way home that ran under my tire......

rode great...lasted great but were not very durable in anything other than highway or sand driving...i stopped using them. Went to Bridgestone Duelers, Goodyear Wranglers, and Nitto Terra Grapplers. These KM2 with the 3ply walls are holding up as well as my Nittos....and my Nittos have had sidewalls up against granite, shale, sharp edged boulders, tree and brush stubs...you name it and not a tear or chunk missing. Taking the FJ60 wheeling in couple weeks and will see for sure...but so far they are holding up well. Sidewalls would be my only beef with an BFG product actually.....and for that reason I would rather have the Toyo or Nittos....but so far so good on KM2s

Other than that my only other complaint is that they are same type tire that PitBullCruiser endorses...so my credibility has been shot to hell.

Re: Mud Country or BF KM2???

So what was the verdict? Did you even consider Mickey Thompson MTZ Traditional Radial? If not why?
