New Meats in the Works!

So its that time! Ive been waiting and i just got back from getting some quotes and im stoked. I got prices on 3 tires. The prices are without tax, and no other mounting or waste disposal fees, so the total price will just be tires + Tax. Ill probably place my order within the next few days. Im getting some 33x1250x15 and putting them on my truck:

and they will be going on these rims:

... and here are the three choices i came up with.

HANKOOK DYNAPRO MT RT03



Price: 160 each, 640 set


GOODYEAR WRANGLER MTR



Price: 165 each, 660 set



BGF MUD-TERRAIN T/A KM2



Price: 170 each, 680 set




Im Thinking this is a no brainer, but what do you guys think? Experiences with these tires would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Lee

Hey TexasRanger do you have any type of lift on your truck? It looks to sit higher, but I can't see a body lift. Anyway I vote for the Goodyear MTR. The BFG's are nice but its good to be different. Did you look at the Cooper STT? They look pretty good too.

yeah i have a bit of lift. not body though. 3 inch spindles in front and a couple things to get the lift in the back. yeah those coopers dont look to shabby. I havent seen anyone around here with the km2's. im sure some people are running them and would like to hear what they have to say.

Have you checked into Dick Cepek Mud Countries? I love mine and if you order before 10/31 there is a $100 rebate. I think Jegs, 4WP and summit have them. I wish you were closer and i would get them for you. Lets just say i paid under $160 per tire after rebate

My vote is for the Cooper STT's. They are sick looking and Cooper is a darn good tire.

I vote for KM2's. I have not offroaded mine yet, but on the street they are awesome. Very quiet even at 85 mph. I am dying to really try them out though.

I know Mario had them in 35's for about a year, he can give the best review on them.

I got an awesome deal on mine, for some reason every supplier I've talked to says they can get the KM2's cheaper than the KM's. I'd start calling up a few local places.

im glad to hear you think they are good on the street. im definatley making a sacrifice choosing mud tires because i have little opportunity to actually put them to use. I cant pass uo the mud terrains though, love the looks.. and just really dont want an all terrain like all the other trucks on the road around here
