My KM2s have something like 27k miles on them now. Lots of tread left, they came with 20/32" I think and now have 13/32". So I should be able to get 50k miles and still have double or triple the legal tread depth, but I'll likely get new ones way before then. They still ride very smooth, still very quiet for a mud terrain. They do make some noise, but they are quieter and smoother than any mud terrain I have driven with this many miles on them.

Here is what they look like now, they are holding up really well.


I would buy them again, and probably will.

I still liked my Cooper STTs a lot though too. I don't have a clue how many miles I had on them because I switched them from the Ranger to the Sport Trac, and then traded it off.

and i only say true 35 because my 315/75/16's don't equal a 35 lol.

and i have heard the reviews about the km2's, but never really seen anything about how they are after they get worn a bit..

oh and BFG at's are great and last a long time, but those aren't nearly aggressive enough i'm thinkin..
the terras are great!!!! i love mine all the way around!!! quiet as can be, wear great, look real aggressive for the type, havent let me down(havent wheeled extreme tho) and are very fairly priced

Mt/r are non directional tires. They are asymetrical though. That's why the tires mounted kn the passenger side have the tread lugs at the opposite angle as driver side

LOL I don't have many places to wheel around here. I work with what I can. And you could have atleast posted my better flex picture haha.

Ty... If you ever sell your wheels I might take them off your hands.
