I've run both on my duramax (honestly)


but, watching both of them in wheelin situations, I would do the MTR-K. the KM2 doesn't clean out really well here in the midwest. both are great tires, but I personally think the MTR-K will be better for the midwest terrain.

probably a little stronger sidewall too. and if you need to go off the board and they have your size, I'd do the Trxus MT in a heartbeat over those 2. I've wheeled them and they are a great offroad tire with very good onroad manners

hope that helps a little

where are you located i would be willing to let you check out mine. these new mtr's are insanely quite for a MT and i had it up to the bumpers in water and sand/mud/sludge and walked right through it, only thing ive ever heard bad about them is they were fast on heavier trucks, but i've had them on my zj since march, drive it everyday and they look almost new still and are wearing perfect.

Only complaint is they are some stiff sob's mine are 33's and C load range with a max of 35psi, i run them at 26lbs on the street and they are still stiff as hell.
