    I need new shoes for the taco I'm off road most of time. I have the original bfg mud terrain and they have suited my needs.

    The BFGs and MTR kevlars are both a solid choice. Of the two, I have the MTRs which I purchased on the theory that cuts and punctures were a little less likely. I've been happy with their grip, self clearing, and wear, and so will probably purchase them again.

    Don't know anything about the Dunlops.

    The Dunlop tread pattern is like the original bfg mud tire.

    The Mud Rover from Dunlop is a great tire but its more for light off road use not hardcore stuff, but the KM2s, like Konaborne said, have low road noise and grip to just about whatever you throw at it hope this helps :D

    I currently have the KM2s and nothing to complain yet. Performs very good with little road noise. My next set will be the MTRs, why??? just want to try out different tires. MTRs and KM2s are both good choices.
