x2 I love mine. I dunno what ima do when they wear out now that the new design is out. I like this design better and i think they look meatier. They do great in mud and on rock for the most part. The new design looks like it would pack up worse. IMO

Yeah I didn't want to go any wider as the 265 a/ts came really close to rubbing. My next set will most likely be 33x12.5... or maybe 35s. Thats a ways off yet.

This month BFG just came out with all common sizes on KM2's, you can get 265, and 32's on 15/16" rims. It is definitely too early to upgrade, but there is more variety now which is cool.
I knew about the size release but doubted I would get them with any sort of summer left. Next year!

They're noticeable. Once I hit 60 or so km/h they become a little louder. But it's a "hum" and it's not too loud. I drove about 500km last weekend mostly highway and with the windows down, and the radio on, you don't even notice.

I've been warned but I know a few guys who swear by them in winter. I'm keeping my all terrains and hope to have them mounted on another set of rims by winter, so I'll be able to swap back and forth. Nothing like one man pit crew action in 3 feet of snow at minus 20 c.

I've had these on for a few thousand km now, and I will tell you I am in love. They look great, sound great, and work AMAZING. The only downsides are the squirmy feeling in turns (I happen to like it, makes it interesting!) and the feeling of the lugs hitting pavement while rolling really slow. (I also like this, makes me grin like an idiot)

I still haven't cleaned my truck up, but I'm on vacation now so no excuses! (except for wheeling, fishing, camping, canoeing, road trips oh the list...)

A couple of more pics, it's hard to get any good ones, because the good spots aren't ones I'm about to stop and take pics in.

Hi, i am looking for new tires too - have stock All terrain Ko tires -stock on FX4-LII

not too pleased about life of tire- good thing is never any flats -
off and on road - some mud/sand and snow/rain..

also not sure which looks better - white letter or black walls..

But more importantly - arent BFG - Mud still good in snow ??

I thought mud tires - where pretty much good in mud and snow .

Mostly out in steel mills - thought M/T's might work better for life and over all ..

I've had them on my truck for 2 years now.

In less than 1" of snow or any ice not much traction.

More than 1" you'll have no problems.

I also had to add weight and with any snow had to be in 4wd.

I'm looking at KM2s or something with more siping next go round. I don't really need the muds just like the look.

I would have to agree with that.
