    As of right now im stuck between the BFG KM2s and the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I really like the rugged look of the km2 since its a mud terrain but i think the Terra Grapplers will last longer on the roads. For anyone who has owned these tires let me know how many miles you got out of them and if you liked them or not.

    km2 and the terra grappler? the trail grappler would be a better tire to compare against the km2.

    i ran terra grapplers on my last tacoma in the 265/75/16 flavor. ...worst tires i've ever had. they were more square than round. i insisted that discount tire replaced the ones that were the most out of round. ..and they did. ..but the new replacements were also out of round and wouldn't balance worth a damn. ...off road traction was shit. ..weak 2 ply sidewalls... i'll never own another nitto tire.

    I have had 265/75/16 terra grapplers on my 01 for 5 years going over 50,000 miles. I currently, have no issues or complaints. They are perfect for an all terrain, especially for the price compared to any other tire in it's category.
