    Anyone try these tires on a Tacoma? I saw a brand new $38,000 Rubicon on the local Jeep dealer's lot yesterday and thought the tires looked pretty impressive. From what I can tell they are a tire that are made only for the Rubicon and not widely available.

    I'm pretty sure they are km1's.

    So what are they like? Are they loud on the highway? Are they hard to balance? Do they do as good in the mud as they look? I expect they aren't a real high mileage tire but probably work real good for a while.

    They are good on the road, and great off road. Noise is not too bad. Mine balanced fine. I siped them myself also, as they are not siped from the factory.

    I happen to have them on my.....Jeep. They are the BFG MT/KM's
    They are noisy, but not loud. They balance fine, and seem to wear good. I have 8000 miles on them, and at 17/32" tread. They are ok off road, and in mud. They don't pack up, and turn to slicks, but I don't know of any mud tire that does. I think there are better tires out there, for example, I think the Good Year Dura tracks are a better off road tire, and should be about the same in wear. They seem to do pretty good in loose, and dry dirt.
