I like the KM2's. I'm starting to see them more now on Jeeps and stuff and looooovvveee the way they look. I'd do KM2's since you just had MTZ's too, try something different. But yeah you're getting raped on that pricing. I paid just under $600 for all my 33" A/T's shipped. Call discount tire direct, for some reason they aren't on their website when you search for them by size but if you call them they might be able to tell you why. They are always the cheapest for tires that I've been able to find and their customer service guys rock and you can negotiate with them too.

Discount tire doesn't sell M/T for some reason, but if you want I can call and ask about other tires for you. I'm still not sure if I can get dealer pricing on them or not, but I probably can. It's only like a $20 savings per tire since they charge you a flat rate for shipping up to X amount of tires if I remember right, I think it was $100? PM me if you want me to call.

www.discounttire.com

They only have 2 different ones on there for some reason, neither are KM2's lol. Call them and ask them why they aren't on the site, I've spoken to them a few times and they are all cool car guys. They are in Cali I think, they'll still be open now.
