    a/t's for sure, Agressive and quiet and not to mention they last forever! By far one of the best tires on the market imho

    it either depends on "where you drive" or "how you want it to look".

    same shit as everyone else
    I have the KM2's and I wish I would have just bought the AT's, lots of road noise, and poor MPG's and when compared to the KM2's they aren't really that much better unless your in crazy mud all the time...

    What are you going to do in the truck?

    If it's daily driven, an AT is right for most people...

    Icon Coilovers, Downsouth UCAs, rear Icon "2.5" shocks and Toytec single AAL. Still gotta do exhaust, dark headlights and re-gear the rear diff.

    Ive read a thread or two that stated the KM2 were similar enough to the ATs as far as not being too loud.... like reasonable loud. (?) So far im planning on the KM2s since they look so much tougher than the ATs

    neither...you're paying for the name and not the quality. Getting some Gen. Grabbar ATs or other option. Save $25 a tire and get more our of them.

    Thanks man.

    Yeah, I've had BFG ATs AND MTs both on this rig. If you're mostly going to be street with occasional offroad, get the AT. MUCH less power loss, MUCH less noise, much less MPG loss, and they'll last longer. And 7 times out of ten, they'll hang with the MTs on the trail (if it starts to rain/sleet/get muddy etc. you're fucked, but otherwise you'll be fine).

    I drive another car day to day, so I can deal with the MTs on the truck. If I DD'd it, I'd have stayed with ATs.

    I'd go A/T's. I had them for 70k miles on my '99. They were a great tire and I didn't find them noisy. Like previously said, unless you're mudding, the M/T's are a waste. I just put the Dynapro ATM's on my '10 regular cab for $114.00 each (tire price only, not installed). They are a lot lighter and cheaper than the BFG's. So far I've found them to be just as capable. For these I went with the P rated tires (because they are lighter). You may want to look into them. With that said though, I'm definitely not knocking the BFG's, but I wanted to try something lighter (because I have the 4 banger) and cheaper.
