Another "Which Tire" Thread.....BFG, Kumho, Nitto???

Its now come down to ordering tires. Ive been searching and found good reviews on all the tires. Ive narrowed it down to these three. Im just looking for a overall good tire with good tread life. They will see the mud once in a while but mostly pavement. Right now im leaning towards the nittos. They just look so badass!

BFG km2 33x12.5
Kumho KL71 33x12.5
Nitto Mud grapplers 33x13.5

i havent seen those kuhmos before, but i know they sure do make pos car and lt tires. Michelin is the bomb, im running 33x12.5r15 km2s. love em. i considered the terra grapplers, nittos are good too, not quite my style though

im sure youll love it whatever you choose.

Im not sure how long the nittos would last. But if you got the $$$ go for those. I would pick km2s but thats me.

best offroad performance would be the nitto but also the loudest and quickest to wear down.

haven't heard any bad things about the kumho's but they are directional

best all around tire would probably be the km2

if most of the driving is done on pavement for longevity id go with the KM2. But nitto mud grapplers are an AWSOME tire, especially off road, just they dont last as long as other tires. If u want somthing loud tho. thats the tire to go with... i personally love the loudness of those tires.

Get the terra grapplers from discount tire. I can get four 33x11.50r16 terra grapplers for $652 shipped to my front door.
EDIT: You have a 15" rim. They dont offer the terra grapplers in a 15.

My km2s are surprisingly loud, I wasn't expecting how loud they would be. My vote is KM2s
