    They forgot to mention a key feature. At highway speeds the tire noise is so loud it can actually repel deer!

    I can't speak towards the KM3 road noise since the tire just hit the market, but I'm looking forward to first-hand reviews!

    Took advantage of the rebate and snagged a set of 285/75/16. Previous set was Goodyear MTR. These are great on the road/hwy so far. Pretty dang quiet (assume they will get louder as they wear)- strange to hear the sound of the engine again. Balanced well. Ready to air them down and see what they can do offroad.

    The Wide Open Baja cars had these at the 1000 last year, at RM820 none of them showed any wear and we changed no flats at our pit. This will be my next set of tires!

    Finally got to try these tires on a trail near the house. Plenty of nasty mud and sand- no rocks on this trail. They did great in the mud/sand. No issues with traction whatsoever.

    Probably driven around 2,000+ miles on the road now. They balanced really well and are relatively smooth, much more so than the MTRs I just had. They might be a little quieter than the MTRs as well. Do just fine in the rain- we've had lots of afternoon thunderstorms this summer.

    Still waiting on the rebate. Need to check on that.

    Mostly stuff I built.
    Just got the first pair of KM3 here at work. We mounted a new pair of KM2 on the same truck so it has a pair of each in 265/70r17. One of each on each axle. We rotate them every 2 months on PM schedule. Let the torture test begin!

    I haven't seen an official list just yet. I'll check with our marketing team on Monday to see if they have any specifics and I'll report back.

    Is there a particular size you're interested in?
