BFG KM2's

Just throwing this out there. These ****ing tires kick ass!! It was muddy as hell out ot the OHV today and saw just about everyone out there swerving and sliding all over the place. First time in mud with the KM2's and it was point and shoot. Even my GF said, "Those new tires must be hella good coz that truck your following is all over the place and you're just going straight"

Hit (SLOWLY this time) quite a few pretty deep (2+ft) "puddles" and the thing just pulled right through with out much, if any spin, unless I wanted to hit the skinny.

The ProComp MT's werent bad but I could tell ALOT that these tires are far, far superior. At least in mud. High Five of the day to BFG!!

I have them on my GMC 2500 4x4 pick up, and it is a daily driver, I have put 2 VERY long trips on them in the last 2 months and love them. Keep them rotated and you will get mileage out of them, trust me!

for sure on the rotating. I do it every oil change and with the old tires would incorporate the spare in. Unfortunatly on these (maybe it was just Les Schwab) but the one in the spare spot now was the furthest off balance and took, I believe, 7 1/4oz to balance. Nice wide patch of sticky weights on that sucker. Might just take that one somewhere else and see if they can do better.

X2 on the KM2's. The other advantage is that they stay relatively quiet unlike the previous MT's!

I love these tires also. I have Dayton Timberline MT on the wife's Xterra and those suckers hum at highway speed. These km2 are not even noticable.

The off-road traction of KM2's is excellent, the sidewalls flex very well and they have loads of grip. They are the quietest and smoothest MT I've seen on-road, even quieter and smoother than Toyo MT's.

Mine stood up to lot's of abuse on the rocks and only after a year or so did I start losing some chunks of lugs, and only small pieces at that.

I rotated mine every 2-3k miles and they still have about 50% tread after 30k miles.

However, the tread wore oddly, every other lug on about 1/3 of the inside wore down 1/8-3/16" more than the neighboring lug. This created a very rough ride, even when balanced and with Dyna Beads, to the point that I could no longer run them.

Not exactly sure why they wore like that, but it happened pretty quickly and they went downhill fast.

Agreed, we've had plenty of road miles on the JK and the 35" KM2's, and just got to test them out at Moab. 10psi and some beadlocks and I went everywhere and didn't really even slip a tire.

I no longer work with Warrior. I am now working with The FIRM.

That's awesome, that's one mean looking PowerWheels. Have had my KM2s now for about a year or so, love them offroad/onroad, rotate them every 3k, good even wear.

Yeah they don't make noise on the highway, and have great grip, blah blah blah

All that really matters is that I can get them in a scale RC size That was all I needed to know before I made my choice. Now I just have to make sure I can get the right wheels.
