Off road it's great in just about any terrain, especially mud. On the road it's somewhat noisey and not as good in rain, ice, and light snow.

They're actually pretty quiet, also sipe them and they do fine in rain snow and ice.

Whoa! You're saying the KM2s wear faster than Toyo MTs? Sweet Jesus the KM2 must be made of rubber paste if it wears that fast.

I run 35x12.5x15 KM2s and so does my buddy, Those tires wear like steel. My buddy drives from ME to NH almost every weekend, about 1.5 hours one way all highway driving. hes probably got 20,000 plus miles on his with little to no signs of wear, (he also did his own alignment, and hes never rotated them) thats one reason i decided to go with these tires. I have about 3,000 on mine know and im very happy with them, they are great on and off road.. The only problem is trying to find someone that has them in stock, they are on national back order in the 35x12.5x15..

My first set were 33's and on my rig 2004-2011. I went up to 35's and my 33's are on somebody elses rig now. Can't say a bad thing about them for a street/offroad tire.

Ya got to agree, the wear is great. I'm running 32x11.50's and have put approx 20k driving on mountain roads and about half worn. As for noise, they are pretty quiet for a mud terrain.

i don't have them but i know people that do. i'd say they are quieter than my baja claws on the road. they wear about equally. they do seem to need to spin faster in mud to get traction.

x2, you should be able to get 50k tread life out of a KM2. I was regretting the day my KM1s wore out but I am now a fan of the KM2s - great tire.
