BFG's AT & MT KM2 are two of the longest lasting tires we run on our Jeeps. I would expect no less than 50K miles out of the MTs and even more from the AT. Their sidewalls aren't the strongest/most cut resistant where there are sharp rocks but their treads do last a long time.

I have bfg AT's and I absolutely love them, they last a very loNg time and the tread pattern is great, I've heard very good things out of the km2's as well

I have at.s on my zj and love them. I want something more mud oriented for my tj. I just don't want a tire that wears out in 20000

I'm going to agree with Jerry on this one. I've run the BFG A/Ts on a few vehicles and they always last quite a long time. I usually end up using my warranty on them due to chunking my sidewall or my tread getting messed up from the rocks though, but hey, $30 for a new tire is a pretty good deal! Once money permits I'll be switching over to the KM2s.

I have run BFG TA/KO's for a long time. My Toyota had 50,000 miles on a set and I still had 8/32 on the tread when I sold the truck. I am running the same on my Jeep and secretly wish I would have went with the KM2 (just for the more aggressive look) I will say that the TAKO's do real well for me in the mud and sand. I really don't do a lot of rocks so I can't comment on them...

I have had the 35" KM2s for about a year and a half and put on about 15K miles on them. I looked up the new spec on the tire and they list it having a 5/8th tread depth. I just checked mine at random spots on different tires and they are at about 3/8ths to 7/16 or just under 1/2" in remaining tread. I drive a lot of mountain roads to and from my wheeling so I think my wear is good, but would be better had I been driving on flat ground. I wasn't in the market, but I just bought a set of MTRs for a great price and will be able to compare the difference in wear and traction. I will also see if used 35s hold their value
