I love my Goodyear wranglers with silent armor. They last a long time and are great offroad.

I just went from BFG All Terrains to Michelin LTX AT2 and I can tell you that the diff is night and day. I picked up at least 2mpg and they are silent in comparison. I haven't been in the dirt yet but the AT2 is supposed to be a pretty worthy offroader.

I've previously run Nitto TGs and Toyo Open Country's and I would recommend them both over the BFG AT KOs. I think that tire serves a purpose but is long overdue for an update.

I've got some LTX AT2's on, used to have KM2's, lasted me a good while. I drive back and forth from AZ to NM quite a bit and the KM2's were noisier than shit! beyond that they're a great tire. my AT2's are a bit quieter and more preferable for my taste.

KM2's for life. Got me out of so many binds. Got 40k out of my first set. Already over 20k on my second set and they look like new. Wheel them hard and freeway drive 52 miles a day. Just rotate them every 5k and keep a good alignment and they do great. I don't even notice the noise from them (I liked it anyways) because the stereo is always up loud. A bit of a mileage killer though.. lost 1.5mpg just from switching from BFG all-terrains to KM2's.

Haha, right. I average a trip every other weekend. Multiple trips to MOAB with them too. and other out of state areas. And I have white showing on the side walls of every tire where the rubber is gone and still cant stop them. I try. But I take care of them too.

Hankook Dynapro RT03 MT 315/70r17. Cannot find a better deal for that size tire and not too heavy for our tacos unlike Nitto TGs or Toyo MTs. Love both for looks and strength but cannot justify the weight in em and price! Desert AZ trails in a pre runner doing 4x4 trails with somewhat ease, I can speak very high for the Hankook MTs

EDIT: Also Jake is much more accurate for the KM2s! We use em on all vehicles at work (Border Patrol), yes that alone speaks highly of them, prolly just cuz the govt gets a good price tho. Most of our KM2s barely see 20K and by then theyre destroyed

I'll kill them at 5k miles if you want to fund the replacements

Just to add my own 2 cents on the MT Baja Claws; I'm in love with this tire in our desert! Just picked them up from my brother in law yesterday and went out yesterday evening to Sycamore. They did not let me down in deep sand, in 2wd with my weak underpowered 22re toyota pickup!
Can't comment on the longevity bc they are used.
Lots of road noise compared to the KMs and KM2 I used to have.
Also, they are supposedly 33s, and with not much wear (80% tread) only measure just over 31".
