    People seem to be raving about the Goodyear Duratracs. You might want to look at those. I think they are more of an "all terrain" though.
    I had some Wild Country mud tires on my old GMC Sonoma back around 2000. They were great in mud but were pretty loud on the highway.
    Edit: from the three choices, I would go with the KMs

    I have experience with the BFG's MT's (KM's) many years ago...and for rain & snow, I would not recommend them.

    For good rain manners - you need additional siping.

    THe only thing I can say about the other two - is they have more siping. But personally, I wouldn't go with either of them (for rain/snow).

    Have you looked at Procomp Xterrains or even the Goodyear Wrangler MTR?

    ^ Yeah I'm not really impressed w/ the PC. I have the ATs on my truck now and they aren't anything great. Not worth the premium they place on them IMO.

    I had the KM's on my 01 Silverado. LOVED EM! But I can't find the damn things anymore. I wanted a set for my Tacoma.

    Those look pretty gnarly but with the wide spacing on the lugs looks like they'd be loud on the road..........

    Some places may still have some in stock. It's worth looking. Some places may even have them marked down because they're discontinued?

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I love my KM2s. They are quite and I think they perform good when it's wet. I've also had them in snow and got through it just fine, which is saying something since I'm only a PreRunner. :p


    They've treated me very well off-road as well. No chunking or anything and they are very grippy in mud. (Go figure!)


    They have about 20,000 miles on them and they still look new!

    I'm not sure why no one really mentions them as an option on here but how about MTZ's
    [​IMG]
    Theyre the only tires a close friend of mine will run. He loves the way they handle on the street. I personally have a set of the ATZ's waiting for my OME lift to get here so they can get mounted.
