KM2 or Mud Grappler?

Hey guys, so I am looking for new tires for my f150, and I have been seeing nothing but 300+ for each tire which is about 100 out of my price range.. Well i stumbled accross oninetires.com which is selling both the bfg km2's, AND the nitto mudd grapplers for well under that..

Soo, heres my question, which one should it get?

its going to be in a 35X12.5R17..

KM2. With Mud Grapplers you'll have loud tires and low mileage out of them from what I've heard/read. Oh and it's opinion LOL

hahaha wooow i didnt notice i spelled that wrong lmao.. NICE..

thanks man. The km2's are exactly 20 bucks more which isnt really a big deal if they are going to last longer than the mud grapplers.. But man, beards truck looks SEXY with the grapplers! lol

Grapplers look nice and perform good off-road but for daily driveability I would chose the KM2's over the Grapplers any day. Hopefully Trent will chime in. He has 35" KM2's on his F-150 and he loves them.

I wouldn't choose either if your truck is a daily driver. I'd go with an AT tire.

I love the look and performance of the Grappler's so if noise isn't a concern then I'd go with the Mud Grappler's.

They are definitely on the noisier side. On the other hand, an F-150 can’t be compared to a Ranger for cab noise. So I’m sure they are fine, especially if you are used to MT’s.
