BFG MTs are awesome! I have the 33x10.5 size. Aired down to 12psi and they do their job well. Tread life is similar to the ATs

The new KM2 version of the BFG Mud Terrain is a much (!) improved version of the older KM that did well in most all terrain except where there were sharp rocks that the KM's sidewall was vulnerable to. The KM2 now has a stronger sidewall to better resist sharp rocks and a tread pattern more like BFG's highly successful but far more expensive Krawler. I dont think you can go wrong with the new KM2 version of their Mud Terrain. Not to mention they have unusually good tire wear, I got over 50K miles when I used to run the BFG MT (I switched to the MT/R for rock crawling duties).

I got 32'' muds but My next tire maybe 33x1050 AT.. I dont do much wheeling as much as I should and the At would be slightly softer and quiter..

but either way you cant go wrong with the muds.. they look nice..

I bought a Used set ...the Old Style...and they have been on 2 Jeeps now.....Still going strong.
They are only 31's so I don't air down very much on the trails.

ICE and Snow on Pavement....not so much.... but I manage here NY and transport my son with confidence. I also Hand Sipped them and feel that does help.

The KM2 are now available in standard sizes... and not much more expensive than the standard M/T's.

If I needed new tires right now, I'd get some in 32's.

I didn┤t like a friends BFG MTs on teh road, espcially in rain. That┤s why I bought teh Cooper STTS. They are as good on the road than my old BFG ATs and as good as the BFG MTs off the road.

they are not made for rain.. yes they do suck in the rain.. but you are not to drive crazy in the rain either..

I never had an issue in the rain.. because like any car or bike.. I know ain = slippery.. 65-70 on the freeway in rain and did not have an issue.. sure thay would be better if they were sipped.. but they are for the mud and not the rain,, but its not like it is non-operatable.

I have the 33 12.50 and had no problem in the rain, not that I get much in Vegas but the roads get super slick out here from the crap that they put on the aspault to keep it from melting. Still no problems. Wear is awsome but when the tread gets low they get louder. Id stop by four wheel parts they have a excellent tire warranty. I put a hole in my sidewall about a week after I got them and they replaced it a t no charge.

Those do look nice Island...Thanks for the input Raven.

Any other input on how these operate in the wet? I know the roads in SD are different from those up in Vegas.

My Pro Comps suck (badly) in the rain (plus they are just ok on the rocks) and I'll be replacing them in the spring.

DO THE BFG Mudders.. You will love them.. Yes, they are kinda loud, but you really only feel them when you are coming to a stop and taking off.. I call it the 10mph vibe.. When reducing from or accelerating to 10mph, you will fell the vibrations.

They are by far the worst snow/rain tire you will find.. But.. If you are not driving it like a rally car on the road, you will be fine.. THEY ARE GREAT TIRES THAT LAST FOREVER!! I have only had two sets!

I should do a commercial...

Go with the BFG Mud Terrains. I love them and they wear great for what they are. Just hurry and get them, as they are being fazed out for the new KM2.

They work well enough for me and it rains alot in the Pacific Northwest. I did have mine siped (for increased traction and wear) at the time of purchase though.

I must not be as critical of my BFG Muds? It rains enough here (floods all Spring this year) and I don't worry one bit about sliding or hydroplaning. Maybe I drive like an old man compared to the ones that say they are bad in the rain but I would recommend them to anyone anywhere as long as rockcrawling wasn't the main playground. Regardless, next year they will need to be replaced and I can't wait for the KM2s!

While most don't think the BFG MTs are that bad in the rain, for those that do they can always have them siped. The Discount Tires store in Oceanside (for you Stevens243) can sipe them for $10 each. I've had two sets of tires siped and thought it was a great upgrade. Be careful to only sipe the two inner tread block rows, leave the outside tread blocks unsiped for strength when wheeling on rocks.
