Default having trouble choosing tires

I have been looking around for some new tires for my extra set of rims and reading over different reviews but cannot decide between two tires. Toyo M/T or the BF km2. Right now I have the toyo A/T and I like them but they are starting to wear down. I do a fair amount of driving commuting to LTU but do make it up north for some fun maybe once a month for wheeling and what not. I cannot make up my mind on which ones to get any thoughts? belle tire has the toyo's for $200 a tire (285/75R16)

I only have second hand experience with the toyo's but they have about 15,000 miles on them so far and show little wear surprisingly. My old boss has them on a lifted bronco and they see the sand dunes, mud bogs, and alot of back roads as well as some highway. They have good manners in sand and mud and im not sure what they handle like in the snow. Sounds like a pretty good choice either way but may i suggest irok's? they work great but if you have your mind set then good luck with whatever you choose.

i have a set of Irocks and they are sweet. i have them on a 94 bronco and ran a mud bog last summer and went just as far as a full size chevy with a set of new 40 in boggers. i took the bronco up to Twisted Trails last month and they did very well. i dont know if you are interested but i saw two jeeps up there runing Irocks that were groved and they said that it made a hell of a diffrence. i cant beleve that they can hook better than they do but they said if they bought a new set that they would do it before they took them out. the only thing that i dont like abought them is what makes them great. they are soft it seems that if you get on a sharp rock or a stump you can take chunks out of the lugs. but dont get me wrong i love these tires. the next set of tires i buy will be another set of Irocks

I'm looking at tires, trying to decide between BF KM2's or maybe Cooper STT's, does anyone have any feedback on the coopers, or should I stick with the BF.
I will be putting them on my blazer.

Will be doing some highway driving, but mainly to and from play areas.
