BFG 33x1050 r15 in. KM2's versus All-Terrains?

Looking to get either of these tires, its my DD and I usually wheel it every other weekend or so. Besides the noise differences, any recommendations on which I should run?

It's preference really.. i have the km2s cuz they are way more rugged lookin and do real good in mud.. all terrains will probably last longer tho.. and may be a little lighter? Don't quote me on that tho.

KM2...without a doubt. Far better offroad, and not much worse on the road.

Do you mud or wheel everything else?

The ATs would do you right and weigh less than the KM2s but the BFGs have more traction in the soupy stuff.

Consider snow and winter season. Seriously.

If you get any winter conditions the A/T will do soooo much better.

I opted for the KM2s because I wanted more of an agressive look on my DD. I could have got A/Ts and still been fine i'm sure.

But where I live, Winter tires are needed. I mean i have gotten by with my Km2s for two seasons but after last season...I'm looking for cheap all terrains to keep my self alive. Not fun.

If KM2s, sipe the center treads. The BFG ATs- I hated them in water and they wear fast. There are better AT tires- Nittos, Toyos, Hankooks, and Firestones. Avoid Michelin ATs- that is the one tire Michelin cannot make- a really good AT. They don't even bother with a MT.
