    Hi all, I just installed a 3" EZ-Lift w/AAL and drop diff on Tuesday and headed to the tire store yesterday. I was tossed between the BFG KM2's and MT ATZ 285/75R16. I've heard good things about both. I like mud tires but want a quieter AT tire. A friend of mine owns a local Goodyear store, so I asked him which way to go. He said wait till next friday and he will have the new Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar. It has the best of both. So now I don't know what to do. He said he would give them to me at cost, but the new Wranglers are $1350, BFG's $951, ATZ's $810. Thats a hard $400-$500 pill to swallow. But it does look like a great tire! At least HE is excited about it.
