BFGoodyear KM2 33's vs ???

I'm going to go with 33's and wanted to know what other options were out there comparable with the KM2.

Just so you know...it is BFGoodrich

Anyways, another tire to consider would be the Goodyear Wrangler MT/r Kevlars...awesome tires. I love mine and have not heard anything but good things about them.

How much time are you gonna spend offroad? GY Duratracs are great tires too, on and off road. With the GY tires (any GY Wrangler) you can get $100 rebate from Treadlightly along with the GY rebate too...

PS where in S. IN are you? I'm in Newburgh...

Is it true the 33's only come white letter out?

I have the 33's in KM2's on my Tj and love them 35,000 miles and maybe 15 to 20 more left. Awesome offroad and clean good in wet conditions. A little noisey on the street and mine is a daily driver.

I also have the Goodyear MTR Kevlars in 35's on our 4 door wrangler. Awesome offroad and in the snow. Quite on the street. We have about 15,000 mile on them and it is a daily drive and love those tires also

The MTRs with Kevlar are true to size and only come with white letters out. The KM2s and the Duratracs can both be reversed to hide the white letters. The KM2s are the smallest of 33" tires regardless what they advertise. They are well know to mount smaller than others in the same size so they will look a little smaller than other 33"s. The Duratracs are almost true to their advertised size. Not many tires are completely true their size once mounted but the MTRs are the most true out of the three your looking at.

The KM2s and the Duratracs are both fantastic tires. The MTRs are great too but they are heavier than both of the others with the kevlar made into them. This may or may not be a deal breaker for you but just so you know.

For anyone that DID choose the MTR's in a 33, do you have pics? I'm currently debating 33's vs 35's in that tire and just wanna know what it'd look like. Current tires are 33" ATZ's and I hate them.

If you're looking for a good M/T then I would also consider Nitto Trail Grapplers, they have very similar aggressive looks and run just as great on and off road! I love mine so far and happy with my choice to go with those
