of course! i like the look and being 2wd i need all the traction i can get. if i went all terrain i would be buying atz's. but i narrowed it down to those 2 for sure.

Price them out on Discount. You'll get a decent deal there. I know I did.

I'm very happy with my KM2s, great in the rain and in the dirt. I haven't had any experience with the MTZs though

I'm a huge fan of BFG Tires. Thats the only brand i've bought since i've owned my truck.

But honestly, out of the two you listed i'd go MTZ's. I like the way they look better. And they are a bit cheaper.

Another MT to look into is the Cooper Discoverer SST's. My buddy has a set of 35's on his Ram and they are a great tire.

I love my KM2s, smooth, quiet (for mud terrains), great in rain/snow/mud. They are wearing great with nearly 20k miles on them. Several people have commented on how good they look and ask me how I like them, and they are shocked when I tell them they have 20k miles on them.

The cooper STTs are great as well, but more noisy as I remember.
