17x9 XD Addicts ordered.. now deciding on tires... help

okay guys..

i know i posted earlier, saying i ordered the Fuel Octane's.. well.. they are out nationwide of the 18's and the 17's would have +14 offset.. that = no good for me..

so i decided to go with the addicts instead in a 17x9..




and im back and forth on tires.. i want agressive.. so im thinking KM2's.. but for almost $200 less, i could just run nitto T/G's and call it a day..

any thoughts or coments?.. how are your KM2's? worth the money?

if only toyo made O/C mt's in a 33x12.5x17...

I have had my XD addicts 17x9's for about 2 months now and I absolutley love em. I decided to throw on some 285/70/17 KM2's on there and the ride is a slight bit bumpier, but u have to expect that from an aggressive mud tire and the noise is not nearly as bad as i thought it would be. just my .02 bro.

So far I love the way my KM2s are running. They're surprisingly smooth and quiet on the street and handle well too. Off road they grip awesome, but after a few trips it looks like the lugs chunk a little bit more than the old KM's. If you want an aggressive tire, I'd choose these hands down over the TG's unless all you do is street and gravel road driving.

Also, Toyo makes a 295/70/17.... basically 33.5" tall which shouldnt be too bad to fit as long as you dont mind trimming.

Nitto Trail Grapplers are also available in that size and measure 33.5x12x17.

Seen 1BLKT and I love his Duratracs! KM2's are nice but UBER expensive.

Nittos TG are "BUNK" Spend the $200 and get the KM2's or something better.

I had the Nittos and they were cool on street but they look weak and were weak for off-road.

I just ran into some problems with offset with xd addicts. Ordered them through a shop and they ordered 17x9 with +18 backspacing, they told me they would fit fit 285/70r17 duratracs. They mounted one tire to test fit in the front and it hit the upper control arm. Prob a inch away from being bolted on.
Ordered the 17x9 with -12 and they cleared the uca perfectly. Had to trim front fenders a bit and took off mudflap and trimed some fender. It's really easy with a dremel and the inner plastic trims easy with tin snips. I actually unbolted the inner fender in the front and drilled the holes back to give it more clearance. They flex really easy, a heat gun prob could help too.
