    I just ordered my wheels and am debating on which tire to order at the moment. I am going up to a 285-75-16 and am planning on going with the BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 (924$ for the set from tire rack). I have also looked at the General Grabber AT2 (704$), the Firestone Destination M/T (924$) and also a few Goodyear tires.

    Anybody have any positives or negatives about any of these?

    Theres tons of reviews about all the tires you posted up, just takes some looking.

    But as far as the KM2's, theyre the best M/T's I've ever had. Low road noise, good on-road handling and great offroad grip. They also wear like a normal tire, instead of having a short life like other aggressive treads

    Another M/T to look at is the hankook dynapro m/t. That and the KM2's are the best on the market IMO.

    The lift is sitting on my dining room table right now, putting it on tomorrow with my neighbor. I ended up ordering my tires from sams club. No charge for shipping and if you buy before August 9th they mount and balance for free and will rebalance every 6000 miles for free. I will post a build thread after I get it all on tomorrow hopefully.
