A guy in our Jeep club has some of the KM2s and he is very pleased with them so far.

I'm a fan of BFGs for an all around tire but if you want something more hardcore you're going to have to go with something more aggressive and sacrifice tread life and ride quality.

I'm currently riding on the KM1s and they are fantastic but I'm not going to spend that much on tires I'm gonig to be abusing like this again. My next set will be Maxxis Bighorns. They wear similar and perform as well as the BFG KM1s and do not cost nearly as much.

the bighorns are ok in the rocks they grab well
I went through 3 tires in the first month of owning them
I now have a tube in one tire that has 3 sidewall holes and 1 tire that has a slow leak
they dont have a scuff resistant compound so they get tore up pretty well when used
a lot off people like them and they will say they last a long time but I have maybe 2 months left of use on these tires they wont even last me a year I have 10,000 miles on them right now.
I wont get these tires again.

I worry every time I go offroad if these tires are going to get me home or if I'm going to get a flat

but they do grab good on the rocks
on slickrock you can hear them hiss air sometimes from the bead (I never heard that with the procomps xterrains and I got 25,000 out of the procomps
with alot of hard rock use)

My BigHorns wore quite nicely on the street and highway. No complaints there. Nice tread and great pull in the muddy stuff. Maxxis does use a heavier compound which results in a heavier tires. They are great, but not 3.07 gear friendly.

Maxxis has a new tire out as well. It's a revamped Buckshot with some side bite on it. I looked at one today at the tire shop.

BFG's KM1 is on the way out. It's going to be harder and harder to find as it's being phased out for the KM2. They guys I know using the KM2 like it. I don't know about wear long term, but if it's anything like the BFG ko, then I'd like it. My ko's are wearing quite nicely.

I don't know about the Crushers. I read up on them and they are advertised as more being aimed at the younger offroaders. They are supposed to be pretty noisy and less than smooth riding.

As far as Kumho go's, I'll pass... I've seen the new tire, and yeah it looks sweet, and yeah it is a good bit less than the others, but in the end it's still a Kumho. It falls under the get what you pay for group. We use their A/T on our 2wd company 1/2 ton, and it goes through tires like gas. We've had a lot more flats(blowouts) since ditching the Michelins and putting on the Kumho. They wear very poorly. My best friend ran the 35" mudders on his 1/2 Ford and went through a set less than every 12 months. They were cheap at Walmart then.


I would like to get the KM2. I shopped around and found it at a pretty good price through Sams Club. I'm gonna wait a while till they've been out a bit. I decided to go with the MT/R's instead. Should have em Monday.
