    Think like this, DD with trail use on the weekends go for BFGs.

    Full trail rig go with the swampers.

    Plus BFG's should be cheaper

    Yeh they are a little cheaper but not by much. Just a couple dollars a tire.

    can't speak on the KM2's but the KM's are good for 50k if rotated often and kept at optimal pressure.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    If ya want swampers, look at the SS M-16's. They're supposed to be the new hybid swamper that performs awesome off road and is still well behaved on road with better wear characteristics than the other swampers. Otherwise, go with the BFG's.

    yeh I am not to concerned about road manors I only live about 15 minutes away from my job other than that I dont do much driving. But I do believe the bfgs would be a better bang for the buck

    33 x12.50 x 15. I just put a 3 inch lift on but i am confused about what wheels to get. The stock wheels and tires right now are about 3/4 inch from rubbing the upper control arm. I dunno what backspacing and offset to get
