New Tires

I went to discount tire with my bro-in-law so that he could get a set of 35 bfg km2s in a 17 wheel (F-150) but when we got there the only mud tire they had was the grappler (in that size). he only buys bfg muds btw.. So long story short he offered to buy the grapplers then trade me for my km2s with about 4-5000 on em. but if i did i had to pay about $200 out of my own pocket tho to cover the remaining balance.. So i did.. And i should get them mounted tomorrow and i know i know dont worry they're coming asap

Hi, was at discount tire today - they never heard of KM2's -
suggeted either Goodyear MT/rs - or Silent Armor All terrain ( instead of BFG's All terrain)
apprently a bettter price, or maybe they make more off of them..

an employee there had 33's Goodyear MT'R' on his truck - said they were very quiet for a mud tire - but that light snow - may be a problem
