Toughest tire made

Theres always tire companies that rep their tires are tha shit, that they will withstand anything that you throw at um. And you believe them untill you're out fucking off and you get a blowout. Well i am repping BF Goodrich KM2s as the toughest tire i know!

Post up stories of what and why you think a specific tire is the toughest one so people can get real stories from real offroaders.

So lastnight i was doing a little offroading and got sideways at about 40 and hit a bigass rock! It completely unseeded my tire from the rim! I was about a mile from my house so i just went ahead and drove home on it since i figured i would be buying a new rim and tire anyway. I came out this morning to change it and started looking at it and it looked fine so i went up to walmart and had them blow it back up and BAM . . . . like nothing ever happened!!! The tire isnt messed up at all and it actually saved the rim from getting really messed up, just a few scratches!

Cool idea for a thread! I really like the idea of hearing people's first-hand accounts of the toughness of their tires.

And I'm surprised it made it that far! Once, when off roading with a friend, we got a blowout in the desert. Drove it back home, which wasn't too far either, but by the end of it, the tire was shredded and the wires were sticking out. Then again, it was a crappy tire, hahaha

I have KM2s, the sidewalls are flexable, they air down nicely and grip well but the side walls are vulrenable to punctures.

10 psi



and I popped it on a rock in my driveway taking a turn too tightly at 5mph

damn dude, thats just bad luck! You do all that offroading and end up popping it in your driveway! hahaha kinda funny too. But thats the thing about my tire, i drove home with the rim riding on the sidewall of the tire which is why the rim isnt messed up! I wouldve thought for sure that the rim wouldve worn a hole in the tire somewhere from all that weight and then narrow edge of the rim. Didnt hardly even scratch the tire

I would say Pit Bulls could take the most punishment. A true offroad tire will be the toughest. But the wont be worth a crap on the road.

We have the original KM's on the Jeep and they have been through hell without a single tear in the sidewall. Couple of nail punctures on the pavement here and there, but no offroad damage. Would definitely buy them again if I could.

I'd also recommend (even I'm surprised...) Pro Comp tires. I bought a set because they were on mega sale and I couldn't pass it up. The A/T "Extreme" have been extremely tough (no damage, lots of rock crawling), have given great traction in all conditions, and have lasted pretty well.

It seems to me like the original goodyear MTR's are the most popular on hardcore rigs. Maybe for a reason

I don't think the OP meant this as a competition between tires, just for forum members to put up their own testimonials as to what abuse THEIR tires have held up to.

I have had one KM1 blow up on the highway. The side walls are chopped up like you wouldnt belive and they are chunking up. Probably the difference between New fresh tires and 3 year old ones that are dried out. Think my next set of tires shall be something Swamper.
