Supply and Demand - the more that are sold, the cheaper they are to produce.. and to sell - Hence KM2's are pretty darn popular..!

poor quality? BFG is known for making some of the best tires on the road, they sell millions of them. im sure if they were poor quality that they wouldnt be near as popular as they are.

Well........BFG's have always been one of the best and one of the most affordable mud tires out there for years now.... That's why everyone and their brothers and their uncles have ran them. lol.

But holy *****....I've been getting about $900 shipped quotes. I might be getting my new tires sooner than I had planned.

Thats a damn good price for KM2's.

A friend of mine just bought a set of 35x12.50R15's Cooper STT's from Discount Tire....mounted, balanced, warranty, for 900 bucks. I thought that was a killer deal.

I wish they made a 285/75 in a D rating instead of an E rating.

That's ridiculous. I just priced them out as 32x11.50x15's and it would be $767.75 to my door step.
