Why i got them?
As of january i was in the market for new tires due to some unfortunate events that caused me to leave my BFG km2s in the trash.(Damn thugs putting nails in my tires)
I found these tires on a youtube video that showed jeeps using these tires in moab. From that video i was pretty much sold on them.
I got the Tires delivered to my casa for $690 with Refund/replacement warranties! a damn good price from the orginial $1300 discount wanted for BFG km2s in 285.
They looked really aggressive for an All terrain, They smell funny, I can't give a definite weight but they're definitely heavier than my km2's, and they took alot of weight to balance out.
First Street Impressions:
Super quiet on highway and city driving compared to my BFG AT that i had before my km2's. For a D load range tire they handle well, my truck feels much more stable in turns and can handle 900lbs of extra weight in the bed very well!( Helped a friend move his 20 of his 45lb weight plates)
Off Road Impressions:
4 People in my cab(600lbs), 6 guns(20lbs), 1 ammo bag(50lbs), 6 big logs(~30lb) 10 1gallon jugs(?) and 6 steel targets(120lbs) pushed the limits on what the weight limit i felt safe with but took the risk.
(in 4x4)On a soft dirt road tires handle well from 30-35mph,to test these tires out i pushed it to 40+ felt like very low traction, almost gliding around(Straight, packed dirty road), Kept speed at 30 and was very comfortable. Hill climbs with 35psi all around in tires no problems. On solid rocks, it has very good traction no slippage.
I have yet to try these in mud, snow, or even rain. This is just an initial review i will be updating every 5000k miles.
So far so good,although i wouldn't recommend these to anyone until i get more street and off road experience with them, but from the good reviews i've read on discount tire direct, i would pull the trigger only if you feel comfortable with it.
