You will probably get a good split on this mostly because there is no correct answer. These two tires are different. The BGF KO2 has been around in some form for a very long time. It is a very good all around tire and has a unique look. I personally have never liked the look and prefer the mud tire look. The KO2 is definitely more of an A/T tire so will definitely not do as well in mud as the SST Pro.

The SST pro is a much newer mud tire. It will most likely hum a little louder but from what I've heard have excellent traction and depending widely on your subjective opinion on road noise are fairly quiet for a mud terrain. It will most likely be a tad smaller than the BFG based on the size given. You'd have to look up measured sizes to be sure though.

I'd vote Cooper but I'm running Duratracs which look fairly similar so take that into account.

I have 315/70 18 Toyo AT on my JKU. They measure 32.75" tall. So it seems your two tires are not the same height.

My tires and 4.10 gears = slow moving pig! You may want to add lower gears to your list of future mods.

Enjoy!
