    Both are great tires! I've had both and like the Cooper STT better. They are better in the snow and make less road noise.

    I vote KM2s! I had the KMs for about 2 years and figured by the tread pattern they have that they would do better in mud and snow. Then i got the KM2s and am very impressed with them. There is a noticable difference in the KM2s offroad! And i haven't found them to be loud at all on the street.

    KM2 have had mine for about 15000 miles and still look like new. Very quite on the road and great off road.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    i have had 2 sets of both of those tires...

    both wore evenly on road...

    both handled well in rain...

    the KM2s seem to clean mud better...

    the STTs liked holding on to mud in its tread...

    the STTs with all its siping, handled canyon turns better...

    on sharp rocky terrain, the STTs tore lugs too easily...

    the KM2s have yet to tear apart...

    on road, the STTs seemed to have longer shelf life... got up to 44,000 miles at 8/32" on first set...

    the KM2s got up to 35,000 miles at 9/32" left, and still managed to sell them for $200...
