Cant choose!

So I put a 3" BDS lift on my 06 TJ and want to upgrade to 33's but cant decide between the BFG KM2's, Good Year DuraTrac, or the new General Grabber. Let me know what you guys think is the best between the (3) I have listed and your experiences with them if you have had any. Thanks fellow jeepers!

I run the dura tracs and have had no problem with them. Had the same ones on another jeep i had and never had a problem with them either. Heard some say the sidewall maybe a little weak or thin however you want to put it, but i've rubbed mine on some pretty nasty rocks and havent tore one yet. As for the other two, I've never ran them so cant give any advice on them. The dura tracs have taken me anywhere I want to go no problem.

I've run the Duratracs on my TJ for about 6 monhs now and so far have no complaints. They're pretty quiet on the road unlike the GY Mtr's that I replaced(replaced them cause I needed new tires). I liked the MTR's even though they were noisey.
I run General Grabber 2's on my Explorer Sport and they're a really good tire. Never had a problem with them.

How is the tread ware on the Km2's? I am low on funds, so if I buy them I need them to last a long time.

I run the red letter general grabbers and love them. Get alot of compliments about them from people everywhere I go. They are much pricer than your other two choices. But they are great on the highway. They are not the better of the mud tire due to the closer tread pattern but are still a good mud tire. Exceptional on sand and dirty though.

KM2s wear like steel, my buddy runs his on the highway from maine to NH all the time, he must have 20k plus miles on them with little wear, the only problem is finding them, I know the 35x12.5x15 has been on national back order for EVER....im sure the 33's would be to but ya never know....

I went with Duratracs. Rebates=more money=more upgrades.

Im running the General Grabber AT2s in the 31x10.5x15. I love them. If you do alot of road running, they are a pretty quiet tire. Visually they are about like the BFG All Terrain KOs.
