Are these tires any good - Dick Cepek's Crusher?

Time for new tires. My 35/12.5/15 BFGs are almost gone after 3 years and 30K miles on them.
I started shoping for tires and found these on the tirerack. They are slightly cheaper then BFGs, however, I wonder how they stand comparing to BFG KM2?

I loved them when I ran them. Wish they made the bigger.

I completely hated the 35" KM2's. I replaced them by 1/2 tread.

I've never ran the DC Crushers, but I wouldn't hesitate to take them over the KM2's.

This they go up to only 35s. No 37s or 40s. I hear they are good tires overall.

Wow only 30K miles. If you want more mileage out of a MT tire the Nitto Trail Grapplers or Toyo MTs seem to last 50-70K miles for most. The MT Crushers look like a soft compound which will grip well but will wear quickly. I am not sure how many miles the crushers will last if you got only 30K out of the KM2s but I would guess less than 30K miles.

I had 30k on my km2's and still had 8/32nds left. I am surprised you only got 30k out of them. Now I have the Nitto tg they are much better in just about every way.

40x13.50 17 Nitto Trail Grapplers are going on mine soon as well. I got over the weight differential between the Nitto/Toyo and the KM2 and MTR-K (about 16-18 lbs each tire) knowing that they are true to size like the MTR (KM2s run small) and more importantly are almost impossible to puncture vs a KM2 or MTR-K. I have never heard of anyone puncturing a Nitto Trail/Mud Grappler or Toyo MT. Also they balance with almost no weight normally and it is very important to have a well balanced tire when running big tires. The MTR-Ks seem to have balancing issues about 50% of the time which is not something I want or have time to deal with honestly. Lastly, I will not be running a spare on my rig as I see no sense in having that 135lbs that high up back there so having a very puncture resistant tire is very important to me (I will have plugs, air, wire, torch in case but I would rather have them and not need them).
