    Trying to decide on what tires I want. Definetly looking for a M/T tire in a 285/75/16. I have been looking at BF M/T KM2's, Cooper STT's, Hankook Dynapro M/T's, Goodyear wrangler MT/R's. What is your experience with these? Please feel free to mention other tires as well. They will be mostly street tires. Trying to keep them less than $250 a tire. Thanks.

    I like my coopers, they are great in the mud and drive fine on the highway. I got them off ebay for around 850 for the set. No complaints realy except that they are not the best in sand but after all, they are M/T's.

    Hancooks. Light tire and did not steal gas milage from me. Runs quite down the highway and does very good in rain and mud. And they did not break the bank and have 50k mileage.

    Didnt see it on your list, but I snagged some Duratracs today. Great AT/MT tire that gets really good reviews on highway, snow, etc. If you really want highway versatility you should consider them.

    Hankook Dynapro MT rt03's for sure...Mine just came in and they exceeded my expectations on tread plus EVERYONE I've talked to thats running them are not only extremely happy, BUT they are getting an average of 60k out of em...I researched tires for 3 months and they not only had the best rating, reviews, and tread expectancy, but better price than most AT's even...If you do decide to go with these, look up Massengill Tire Company in Benton, TN and ask for Mr. Mac (the owner)... I've send him 3 people in the past 2 weeks thats bought these tires and he has beat everyone's price including shipped to your front door...I paid $635 for them shipped and I got 32x11.50r15's...
