Tires question

Anyone know anything about the BF's MUD KM2s? this is the desert it never rains here so there's no mud only sand and dirt/rocks, this is baja, but i saw the KM2's and fell in love with them, how good are they for this kind of terrain? thx for any input
btw i'm getting 32x11.50's

Why not go with 33s with the spindles? I haven't heard anything about the KM2s in the desert, I just see mostly ATs or Bajas

here is the thing.. that ^^ is a Coil Spring 2wd it sits alot lower then your truck is stock right now.. you can fit 32's with no spindle lift on stock rims he cant..

to get the same lift proportion as that truck you will need 33's other wise it wont look like it would look like him lifted like that with 31's or 30's

we do know what we are talking about here

Here i can fix this right now...

Here is my truck with a 3" body lift this is how tall your edge with a spindle lift will be when finish you said you are gonna keep your stock wheels... well here is STOCK Alcoa wheels with the same specs as your wheels and 32x11.5x15








see how skinny it looks, and looks nothing in proportion to that truck you posted...... go with 33's..
