    Personally I wouldn't spend 6 bills on used tires. Call my psychotic but I like warrenties and I'd rather know I screwed them up from the start than someone else that could never get them balanced/ect.

    I've been considering getting these. Obviously KM2's, like all mudders, are not so hot on wet, lightly snowy, or icy roads. My question is, how bad? I live at the base of the Rocky Mountains and already had one ass pucker experience on an icy road with mudders on my old Bronco. Aside from that, they had such bad traction in winter conditions that I frequently had to put it in 4wd just to get moving on the ever so slightest grade that would be hardly even visible to the eye.

    I want mudders again because I do wheel a fair amount but I do not want to just throw safety out the window. I go back and forth between mudders and an aggressive AT.

    Thoughts?

    Glad to hear about the rain. I imagine Austin doesn't get much snow or ice. Anyone else?

    Silverback07, for what it's worth, I'd totally have sex with your truck.:eek: It is easily one of my favorites on the site.

    Damn I'm jealous, I have the km's and pulling out quickly on a wet road is nearly impossible, i just sit there and spin. But I also have 255/75/17's so i guess the narrower tire doesn't help.

    I got right at 42Kon my first set. In my opinion, the KM2's are quieter on the highway than the first gen KM's. I have right at 3K on my second set. In the wet and mud they easily justify their cost. My dad just put a set of 265's on his 02 Tacoma. He basically got a set after seeing how well mine performed in the slick stuff.

    Pretty good wear! if you can get +50K miles out of them that would be excellent. I was on the fence becuase I heard they wore quickly but sounds like that's just not the case.

    Do you do a lot of highway/city driving?
