    they are fine highway, actually kind of quiet for a mud terrain, but they dont kickass completely everywhere else. In wet pavement conditions ice and snow they are not good and break loose easily.

    i currently have the reg BFG mudders and in northern utah we get 300 + inches of snow. you just have to be smart.

    i sure learned it fast though on the first snow.... i went to turn and kept going even though the tires were turned :D


    and the KM2's scorred higher on everything than the reg mudders

    I know it's not what you asked in the thread but I think you'd be fine with km2s. With all that snow though duratracs look to be a good option. I've also heard that the Goodyear MTR's with Kevlar are pretty beastly in snow and mud so maybe look into those. Iirc Eric (relentless fab) siped his km2s...maybe ask him how they perform. :thumbsup:

    sweet thanks for the good points ^^^^

    i kinda like the beastly look of those KM2's..... but i have to travel 50 miles a day 5 times a week for one year..... but im willing to pay for a bestly tire if it gets eaten up in 15,000 miles

    They are a sweet tire for sure. Especially once you get into the 12"+ width range.

    I really like my KM2s. They perform better than my old procomp MTs and they ride 10x better on the hwy

    I was running them on my 91 Chev K2500, 35" Km2 and they were great on road/off road escaping zombies runnning over mounds of zombies whatever you need to do they are the best in my opinion,

    Quieter than most MTs. Mileage is still shit. Nothing surprising, really.

    The body lift will help a little but you'll probably still have to trim a little. No big deal really.

    Maybe very slight trimming for daily driving (turns and stuff) and then a little more for when you're flexed out.

    Arb bullbar m8000 883 on 5100 5leafs out back, big trucker cb, toolbox, dogbox, loaded with guns and HID's soon.
    I'be had about all of them the original bfg / km1 were about the best tire I have ever owned. The km2 are louder and are total shit on the hard pack, I took the off at 40 percent because I didn't want to run the another winter. The Goodyear duratracs are quiet and snow flake traction rated. Now mind u I'm takin on a f350 tacomas are even.more quirky on hard pack. The duratacs have great traction in snow trust me I broke a Dana 60 frt shaft. But I would go km1 if they still made them. Only bad thing about duratracs not.that many sizes yet. I just got a good deal on sum ome 882 and they gave like 3.5 lift with no winch bumper combo way to tall and gunna eat cv's so gunna have to take them off till I get bumper. My tacoma is a v6 xtra cab and I know that they don't rec installing w/o bumper but I had to lol thought they were just referring to riff ride. Jmo hope it helps.
