    I have heard pretty good things about the TrXus tires for the price you pay and they kind of look like a KM2.

    MT look like they would be loud on the road.

    They are also about $300-$350 per tire.

    many.
    I just pulled Trxus M/T's off mine. I went with Goodyear's new Duratrac Wrangler. My MPG went up almost 3 MPG. You may get about 20,000 out of the Trxus. For daily driving, there are better choices.

    I paid 136.00 at Tire rack.

    My buddy had the baja claw on his F-150, less than a year later, he was looking for new tires. They wear out too fast. I'm getting the MTZs pretty soon. Those would be the ones I would go with.

    I hope you have at least 3" of lift if you go with the MTZ. The smallest tire on that page was 33X15.50!!

    For the passed 20+ years I've had BFGoorich All-Terrain T/A® KO on all of my pickups and SUV's. All of them still had 50% tread life after 50,000 miles. Very very happy with them. It's the ONLY tire I'd ever buy. Period.
