Mtr kevlar or km2

I was just wondering what your opinions are of the goodyear mtr with kevlar vs the bfg km2. I'm going to be getting bigger tires shortly and im leaning toward one or the other.
thanks

the mt/r hands down!!!! i LOVE MINE!!!! they perform great in the mud, loose sand, gravel, rocks, snow and pavement. i can confidently say they will handle anything you can throw at them in a ranger (unless your beard)

hahahaha that little add on on the end made my day.


I have no experience with those 2 in particular but I have heard nothing but good things about KM2s. Apparently the most snow and rain friendly mud tires on the market.

i have talked with lazler about this cause he has the km2 32" and i have the mt/r kevlars in 33... if i recall correctly he said the km2 was good in the snow but not great. sometimes difficult to stop. the mt/r has the "dual purpose" tread design that works awesome

I got the kevlar's because km2's were backordered. I really like how the kevlar's perform well pretty much everywhere. They kinda suck in light snow, but so do most all mud terrains. I have a buddy running km2's and he loves them as well. Honestly, as long as you pick one of the two I would say you will be happy. Just comes down to personal preference.
