    Both are great tires for sure but the BFG has been tested and proven more...although the MTR would do ANYTHING the KM2 will do...and the MTR is tougher...especially the side walls


    Just get the MTRs :laugh:

    dude guys run 35s with a 3" lift...just depends on how much you wanna cut and trim I suppose...here's the difference between the 2...

    What exactly would I need to trim? The actual painted part?

    Well the cab mounts would probably have to be shaved and then the inside of the fenders for sure...I don't think you'd have to actually cut the painted part...each situation varies though bud...its weird! Some guys will have to do more trimming than others...I think it has a lot to do with wheel back spacing and blah blah...
