Default What 37's to buy *irok or km2*

Cousin is looking at buying some 37's for his 4runner were building, and just looking for peoples opions on what tires they like. Right now he's looking at getting the new km2's.

Its gonna be used mostly as a toy but will still see the road. Its gonna be setup as a trail truck *lives 15min from twisted trails*, but will see its fair share of the dunes and some mud every once and awhile.

So what have you had good luck with or even if you have some 37's forsale

Update
Cant figure out how to make this a poll so here is the current ?
Either

37 12.5 km2
OR
37 12.5 irok radial

What would you pick, o if any one could tell me how to do a poll that would be helpfull

hands down, the Trxus MT


best of everything IMO. rides nice on the street, tough Interco sidewall, great in pretty much type of terrain (compared to any other radial)

I ran the 37x12.5-15 on my 1/2 ton axles for over a year and it was a DD then. now running 42" iroks on my 1 tons since it's not a DD anymore

Maybe he 37s are different but the 35s that a buddy runs have the shittest sidewall i have ever seen. I would never recommend them for more that street and dune running.

could be (kinda like the smaller iroks compared to larger ones on tread). I beat the hell out of mine and had zero issues with them. they've seen tellico, hot springs superlift park, badlands, and various other places.

the 37" Trxus have stiffer sidewalls then the 35's


the 38" TSL measures 37" on the truck

I ran some 36" Iroks (first set of swampers I ever Bought) If I wasn't on rocks I HATED them.

I've been less than impressed with spotting radial iRoks on the trail. The Truxus is a good all around tire, has good street manners and comes in a 37.
