    I like the KM1s lol they don't make them anymore but I found a set brand new in 35s at a local shop when I got my 6" lift and I love them, I think they look better than the KM2s and everything else I've seen

    not too bad, the faster I go the more I can hear them but I usually keep my music on kinda loud anyway so it's no big deal

    I have the nittos train grapplers and they are awesome still a 10 ply E rated tire and lts cheaper.. They look good aren't super loud ad the best thing is they are lighter 67 pounds per tire aprox, every extra pound is 7 pounds rolling weight..

    If you want better looking tires, get the BFGs. If you want best bang for buck and longevity, then the Nittos. I have 68k on my nittos, but bored as hell with the side wall
