New here. BFG KM

I am in need of replacing two of my KM's.

I hateeee the new km2's with a passion.

I've searched everywhere my mind has sent me (discounttire tirerack etc), but i cannot find anyone still selling km's for a decent price.

Anyone know where I can get me some 31x10.5x15 km's?

I am very much into VW. I just sold my VW. Very sad event.

Anyway, I don't like the way the km2 looks to be honest. And the sidewall kind of bugs me. I am picky about my tires.

mmmm can't beat a set of 195/45/16 512's on an 8" wide rim.. Anyway anyone know a site for some km's?

I sold it due to the previous owners inability to properly do anything.

I've had my ranger for about a year now, slowing modding it. I'm best friends with 02rangermayhem on here.

He got me into rangers even though I'm a die hard vw lover.

IMO, performance outweighs 'looks'...





BUT...KM's are being phased out right now. Call around, check websites...i'm positive places still stock some. I'm actually in your shoes right now. I really want to get KM's in 35x12.50r15 brand new...having trouble finding them. I want 'em since I've had 3 sets prior and absolutely loved their performance. If i can't find any, hello KM2.

Lol I am into performance dude. My gti was pushing 300 to the wheels. Vr6 camm'd out, vortec blown. The only "looks" I go for is a nice set of wheels and a drop.

Yeah I guess I have to call around.

hrrm, i really like the look of the new KM2, i would buy a set, but i'm not quite sure how they would do in my winter driving... i still might go all out and get them... i don't know.

i think i really need to talk to someone locally who has them and see how they do.

^^If they are anything like the KM's, they will be great in winter/snowy conditions.

Well, then let me explain it to you.

I don't like the km2's. Easy.

I like wheels and drops on my VW's.

But I own a ranger, I'm on a ranger website. Nothing to do with the VW's I own/owned. I like dumped cars, and lifted trucks. Why would I want km's if i want to drop my truck?

What does me being into OEM+ VW's with some go behind them have **** to do with my question on kms?

This website gives VWvortex a run for its money.

OEM+ FTW, but you won't find too much of that around here since theres really not too much stuff to do that with on Rangers.

LOL @ the comment about vortex, thats the best forum online. Well, the car lounge is atleast.
