    Looking at the Wild Country Mudclaw, BFG MT KM2, Nitto Mud Grappler, Nitto Trail Grappler, and MT MTZ can't decide between these. I don't want to put a lot of money in them. I've had Cooper STTs and liked them but decided to sell them and try something else. Any suggestions would be nice. The only reason I'm looking at the Wild Country's are because they are the cheapest and I know that they are built by Cooper.

    Coopers are pieces of shit... the quality of their products are inconsistant and for wat you pay for you should get a wuality product day in and out. When I go for more aggresive tires, I will be replacing with the KM2's. I have mulitple people getting 50k+ on them on full-sized trucks

    KM2s In my opinion are very good, the trail grapplers look cool but they are expensive.

    wat?
    i'd say either MTZs or KM2s. mud grapplers are way too soft for lots of highway use.

    Ummm... they don't race on All Terrain or Mud Terrains... You can't use the tire they race with (BAJA T/A) as it isn't DOT approved for highway use. That doesn't mean BFG/ Michelin don't learn from making race tires.

    General Tire has created a DOT approved tire that is close to their off road race tire, just designed for higher mileage and quieter ride... and it is just now becoming available...

    I think these would look sweet on my Tacoma!
