    Is anyone have the BFG KM2's on there 2nd gen. Just wondering what they look like and how they like them. I am in the market for tires and want a agressive look but i also want good tread life. I have been eyeballing these for a while now and want to see what they look like on the taco's. TY

    There are tons of guys running these tired and love them. I dont personally have them but i know they do get good reviews and also look mean. A lot of people like the goodyear duratracs for the aggressive look and a great performing tire.

    Is this on-road only? because if it is, getting the MTs is just silly.

    very very nice, i believe i have made up my mind. how is the road noise on them, and also with the 285's, what size lift do u have? did u have to do any triming?

    Noise is not bad, obvious tho coming from the stock setup. I have a 3" lift set at probly 2.5 with AAL in the back. I did have to do some minor trimming but no cab mounts or anything a dremel couldnt handle in just a few minutes.

    Tim, What kind of gas milage are you getting with those tires? Now that gas is 4 bucks I don't want to kill my milage with 285's. Just put my King shocks on and am ready to go on tires. Thanks and great looking truck. Oh- what are your wheel spec's? BS & OS? does it fill the wheel well?

    285/70-17's

    Gas mileage went down quite a bit from the Duratrac's I had before. Love the look but will probably go for an "aggressive" looking AT tire next time around the block.
