    question is "c" load / 265

    or tougher thicker "e" load / 285 ?

    Build thread in sig...
    e is tougher, but it is independant of size, and the rubber will be the same compound (think resistance to slicing in these cases) as long as you are comparing c and e of with the same tire modle

    Firestone Destination M/T for me, been through every element including very rocky terrain and I have yet to have any problems. I have been running these for over 3 years now

    For me it is Toyos. They are going to last me 50,000+, I have about 35,000 miles now. I never worry about them on the trail and I air down to 15psi.

    well i do a lot of mudding and the KM2s are awesome for that, actually could notice a big difference between KM1s and KM2s. In Tennessee we have a lot of mud but its mostly in rocky trails. A good mud tire plus a good durable rock tire is perfect for me and thats what my KM2s have been so far

    For a radial, Toyo m/ts, a little pricey though.
    For bias ply, I would venture with swamper tsl/sx, grooved

    Same here on the MTRs. Nick hated them, but I like them so far. More than the KM2. After windrock my KM2s looked bad. Tires were cut to shit.

    lil thread revival but yea theres a good reason why we border patrol agents use the KM2s :cool: loud on the highway but offroad i never worry!

    funny i ended up gettin the nitto trail grapplers for my truck. someone tried to slash my back left tire....i laughed when i finally noticed it, even tho i was alittle pissed at the same time. i drove for about 2months on and offroad until they could get a new tire in stock and never any problems, guys at discount tire were suprised how deep it was and still kept going without a blowout

    Maxxis Bighorn 10ply and couldn't be happier. I am very hard in tires and the Les Schwab crowd used to get nervous when they saw me coming as they new it was a another warranty tire. Not the case now days.

    They have been great in both mud/snow and I have yet to tear a sidewall despite heavy punishment. There is a lot of clay in my area so clean out qualities are critical and these are the best I have ever had.

    My km2s did fine, they chunked pretty badly but i never tore a sidewall. Did a little wheeling around my house shortly after I got MTRs and tore a sidewall. They seem to hook up pretty well but im always scared now of tearing a sidewall.

    I loved my original MT/R's, They hooked up great the whole life of the tire never had a problem with the sidewalls. :pout: Too bad they don't make them anymore.

    *edit* Got 60K out of those tires, still had about 15% tread left when I replaced them.

    Firestone destination MT have been very good to me.
    Rocks, sand and some mud. No blow outs and only 1 small cut on the side wall that is very shallow.
    Did 150 miles of trails in Colorado, 100 straight miles of logging roads in Oklahoma and various adventures around here.
