BFG A/t's vs KM2. Experiance only please

Well I'm sure this topic is probably old hat but I will only search a few pages before I ask this question. Here goes. In two months I will be buying a new set of 33x10.5x15's. I am running the bfg a/t's and have no complaints other than obviously deep mud. I want to know how the KM2's performs on wet roads, ice, light and heavy snow, sand. I am happy with the a/ts for what I do but if the km2's are better than why not. Oh and tread wear is important. I have 42k on the a/t's I have now and they are done and I would like to keep those numbers up. Thanks for your help.

I've had both and love them both. I just like the look of the km2s on my body style f150 over the ATs. The km2s perform just as well in everything IMO. I haven't had any issues on the street, sand or snow. Love em

So basically if you want mud performance go km2s. If you don't care go with either

x2! I've never dealt with either in snow, but I loved both. It all just depends on what you main use is with them. If you do a lot of offroading I'd go KM2. If your mostly on the street I'd go AT's.

Just get the km2s. They work well in snow and ice. They are also fine in sand (same as any mt) and wet roads. If you try them and wish for even more ice traction you can get them siped, but I haven't seen a need for it. I think I have 32k on my km2s now and over half tread still. I like to get new tires around half tread anyway personally, but there is still plenty of life. Wet traction has decreased some as I get further down the tread but that is typical. If I don't buy new tires this winter I may get then siped just for kicks.

I'm off the pavement just about every weekend so maybe ill do the km2's. I've been doing more exploring in the winter time lately so I want good cold weather traction..........if no one else has anything to say I think im going to give the km2's a try. It seems like some big change for me since I have always used the a/t's. I found that I can get good deals on tirerack.com so i am more willing to try a different tire, Thanks for your input.
