Not sure I want to run those as my front dana 44 would kill me. I have a v8 as well so I can see bad things happening? Maybe not idk

km2 hands down, and if it doesnít touch pavement get the krawler

The km2s act like paddles in the sand dig just the right amount without burying themselves. As for trails/parks the km2s do ďgoodĒ in the loose gravel on top of hard pack, probably due to the large tread blocks. But softer soils that the tire can actually sink into a bit they work flawlessly. Probably donít need to tell you because Iím sure you already know but these tires were born in the rocks and that is where they shine. They have open tread blocks across the entire face unlike the mtr, so they catch on the rock face. As for mud I try to stay away from it so I canít give you an opinion on that. I can tell you though, that I will be buying these again.

If you are curious about quality, my 35x12.5x15" km2s on aluminum beadlocks balanced out with 5.5oz on the worst tire and 3.5oz on the best, on the first try. Pretty damn good for a tire of that size.

KM2's for me too. I'm on my second set. The first were 35's and the new ones are 365-75-16 so like almost a 38x14. Had no issues at Twisted. Done some wheeling at a local property with hill climbs and notches, creeks ect and did awesome until I got into super deep mud that was stopping guys with boggers too.

I have km2s as well and am very happy! How much street use does the truck see and what kind of terrain are you mostly in? If sand only I suggest trxus sts or nitto dune graplers

they are good for a 32" tire on a daily driver that goes offroad 3 or 4 times a year. They are not a tire that pops into my head when someones asks for a 37" or 38" tire for offroading. Even for a DD, I'de rather have a MTR than a KM2.

Although KM2s do look good for magazine photo shoots.

Me and my buddy have been very happy with our 35s and nightkrawler liked his 37s more then his 39.5 iroks. What would you suggest for something that gets wheeled often and sees road time

how much road time do you mean? How many miles per year

I'd like to hear Nightkrawler tell me he liked his KM2's better than his Irok's.

38" TSL's come to mind for me.

I'd suggest taking a look Pitbull Rockers, when I make the jump to 35s it will be Rockers or the new MT/Rs

My jeep sees around 600 miles a year. I plan to put the tires on a different set of rims and swap them over when I go wheeling.

I was looking at tsl's. Never seen km2 ill have to look them up
