Toyo MT's VS. BFG MT's

I need help decideing. these tires, which ever I decide will be used 80% HWY and 20% offroad. I live in the NorthWest and it rains every day it seems like so im looking for a good wet street MT. The off road driving that i do is mostly fire roads and trails in summer and in winter when there covered in snow. Not too much mud but not ruling it out. anyone with either one of these tires PLEASE tell me the pros and cons. Thanks

If you're driving 80% road, much of the time wet, and on snow, MTs make no sense at all for you.

Are the looks really that important?

KM2's for sure.. but if you are gonna be 80 and 20 then why go with a M/T? Go with an all terrain. KM2's are the best for wet roads, but a A/T will always give you better traction on wet roads. That's my .02, if you really want M/Ts go with KM2s over the Toyos.

goodyear silent armor or any "normal" A/T will be fine... too many mall crawlers in the world already... M/Ts on a street truck are dumb, mts are not good for fire roads, snow, wet pavement.

I live in Oregon and my KM2's suck in packed snow and ice, as well as on curvy wet roads. I've unintentionally drifted around a few corners on wet pavement and thats not a fun feeling when you're not expecting it. KM2's are about useless in snow from my experience here at 4200ft el.
my $.02

For usage as you described, look at some GY Duratrac's. I wish I had them now instead of my KM2's.

A lot of money to waste. ATs will get you more mileage of wear and perform better in the conditions you describe.

duratracs work really well on everything ive used them on. Except they are too soft for sharp rocks and chunk a little bit.

KM2's are way cheaper than Toyo's! But prob AT's will be better for those conditions. There's a dude at work with 285 AT/KO's and they look beastly!
