37" Toyo Tires Open Country MT...any feedback

Have been looking at tires, and the local shop reccomended the Toyos over the BFG KM2 or Duratracs...if anyone has/is running theses tires, any feedback would be greatly appreciated....

HAd the 37x14.5-15 and will never buy these tires again. Too heavy, too stiff side walls, didn't grip the rocks well at all. Did last long though but certainly did not perform as well as I wanted or expected.

Sounds like they would do great at my local mall!

You will love the KM2. Really see no complaints. My 35x15 weighed in at 61.4 lbs.
Or step down to a A/T if you don't need such an aggressive tire.

Loving my Trail grapplers but the nice CO shale and sharp shit does take its toll! No issues gripping.

A little heavy ( slightly lighter than toyos)

1. Trail grapplers
2. KM2's

If not street driven the max is creepies!

Of those three, I'd take the KM2s if you are actually going off-road and have rocky trails. Otherwise, get the DuraTracks for occasional and light off-roading. The Toyos are just too heavy. Another KM2 alternative to consider would be the Goodyear MTR Kevlar (very similar weight as the KM2).

Thanks for the feedback...once the wheels/tires and lift go on, this Jeep will be sitting in the garage and used primarily on the weekends when I head up to the mountains. Although I've been told I'll probably drive it more than ever when the mods start taking place. Luckily my commute to work is only 2 miles round trip!

I now see you live here near Denver. Yeah, avoid the DuraTracs. The KM2s or MTR Kevlars are a far better choice for the trails around here. The Toyos will suck the life out of your Jeep. Mine is stock, and primarily used on the weekends...at least for now while I still have extra vehicles. I love the KMs that came with my JKR. They do amazingly well in the dirt and rocks. I air down to about 20 and they just claw up and over everything.
