which size/tire?

so im going skinny which is very not like me but im tryin to build a great all around truck with as little issues as possible...

so with that said do i run 255-75-17 bfg m/t
or do i run 255-80-17 bfg km2's ????????

the km2s are 1in taller and about 10 bucks more per tire....

ive run the old style bfg m/ts and loved them and am not sure if i want the added weight and sidewall not to mention the extra cost.....are the km2 really that much better as a dd/weekend warrior?

do u mean 255/75/17 mgf a/ts?

id go with the km2s. I really like mine and ull have the tread if u ever need it. Plus with that narrow of a tire, ur rolling resistance is already decreased

the reason i ask is because the m/ts are the km2s

i didnt know the old m/ts were still available - my bad. I would almost go with the older style m/ts - people seem to like them better. Thats a tough call though
