    Have the pro comp x terrains with over 30,000 miles on them now, and still have maybe 1/3 the tread left. So looking into another good type of mud terrain tire thats not too road noisy and has a good tread life on roads. These x terrains had a great tread life, but man they are noisy, and vibrate the truck like crazy. Havent talked to anyone about the BFG mud terrains, so curious to see what people say about using them on a daily driving. Was thinking of going back to the all terrains, always loved those tires, but want something more off road aggressive looking and performing that I wont have to replace often from daily driving, and also wont vibrate so much like my current tires. If you have any other brand suggestions let me know. I'm only asking about the BFG's cause I have always liked their tires, and see lots of people using them.

    Thanks ya'll, Alex

    You don't really care, do you.
    I have had mine for over a year and put over 30k miles on them and I still have at least 1/2 the tread left. When balanced and rotated properly, I don't get any vibration other than the normal tread hum. I drive 80 miles round trip each day on the freeway, and I take them out crawling or off-roading at least once a month.

    I used to run the BFG A/Ts and loved them for a good all-around tire. I also wanted something more aggressive looking and performing and I just couldn't find a better rated tire than the new KM2's for what I wanted to do. I will buy them again for sure.

    Ya I rotate and balance mine every 5k miles, I only have a 45 mile round trip to work everyday. I always heard alot of good things about the old BFG mud terrains, so was hoping their new ones would be just as good. Glad to know their worth the price.

    I love my KM2's and the road noise isnt that bad. They walk alittle at about 80 but that could have been my alignment. I say go for it! They are great in the mud also, like really good.

    Thanks, think ill have to put those KM2's at the top of my list in tire choices going to need a set 5 for my full size spare too, so gonna be a pretty penny thats for sure but sounds like their worth it. sure none of the other mud terrains excluding boggers of course are probably as road noisy as these x terrains Im using. Used to always want the mickey thompson baja claws for the longest time, but havent seen anyone using them in awhile so not sure if their any good?... Just liked the way they looked mostly, kinda like a more aggressive looking pro comp X terrain.

    If you can get beyond the love fest for BFG... have a look at the April, 2011 edition of Four Wheeler Magazine. They did a very comprehensive comparisson of 10 mud terrain tires... seemed to be totally unbiassed and fair... and they had good things to say about them all. Cooper Discoverer STT was not included... and I am sure there are others too.

    They were surprised when the BFG Mud Terrain TA KM2 did so poorly (came in 8th place)... and equally surprised that Hankook Dynapro MT beat the rest!

    2) Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar
    3) Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ
    4) Nitto Trail Grappler M/T
    5) Yokohama Geolander M/T
    6) Pit Bull Rocker LT Radial
    7) Intelco Super Swamper TrXus
    8) BFG Mud-Terrain T/A KM2
    9) Pro Comp Xtreme Mud Terrain
    10) Maxxis M8060 Trepador
