Haven't used any of these tires but from what I have seen an looked at the toyo's seem to be very heavy, the mickey t's very expensive an the km2's an kevlars are a toss up. If I were to pick one I'd probably go with the km2's

I also take weight into consideration. Cause there is more rolling resistance with wider tires so it takes more power to get them rolling. I have 33x12.50 DuraTracs on mine an will possibly upgrade to the km2's later on when I need tires again. Here's a pic.

Look good... How much heavier are the toyo mt's? I'm really leaning to those

Hmm I'm not sure check out tirerack.com they have all the specs of all the tires just put in 33x12.50 an see what they have. Idk if the 33's will be super heavy but 35's an up there is a big weight difference

I just put on 33"X12.5R15 Cooper Discoverer STT's last week. Too soon to give a detailed review on them as of yet. But I do like them a lot so far. Not too loud and very aggressive look. Check them out.
