Yea, B.B.'s pics helped solidify my decision of the DT. I,ve got the same ride (but black) and they look good on there! So unless someone can prove I am making a bad mistake by the time I finish saving for these (two weeks) I am pullin the trigger!

Votes please and Pics would be great!
KM2 is better HEAVY traction & overall mileage highway tire with less tread block movement for better handling & because of the heavier larger lug pattern putting more % of rubber on the road IE: heavier tire, more rubber, more $. However tread wear ratings show very similar on web sites to DT. If you spent more time in ALL TERRAINS Rain, Snow, Ice and Sand it would be the DT. But lots of highway & good off roading time to time KM seems to be more likely choice. Worked in sears tire center for long period of time & yes they do come in E load range in specific sizes as should the KM2. Call em up if you have a local Sears, THEY WILL MEET OR BEAT ANY TIRE deal.....yes including online which they include shipping costs in their totals but could save you few more bucks & have local place for warranty rotate re-balance etc. They also have "friends & Family" nights which you get 10% off usually once a month on sundays. Order them then! They will not match price & give 10%, sorry - They will also be able to tell you load range options for size your looking for. C YA

Yah, I have never had the DC and when I lifted the Jeep I wanted the BFG A/T TA's but the was a 16 week back order from the factory and NO ONE had them in stock, I heard a lot of good stuff about the DC so, hopefully they will be a good tire, but my next set will be the BFG again.... Good luck with the GY's... and Happy Jeepn'

Naw some off brand tire. It had a good tread but the sides were really weak as we found out that day. I was using the older MTR's and he switched over. In fact, I still have those same tires on my Bronco Just rotate the bejeezers outta your off road tires and they last a LONG time.

I have not had my jeep that long, plus I am in the military and don't make much money AND Congress wants to cut even more of my benefits. Lucky Me
Sorry for soap box but anyway. I ACTUALLY have MTR's on my Bronco and will prob get the KM2's or MTR's at this point unless someone comes out with a better tire. I will be buying rims and tires this summer so I can rock my Gas Sippers during the week and put my Many tires for the weekend

Strength-wise, when compared to the BFG MT KM2, the MT/R is a much stronger and MUCH more cut-resistant tire due to its kevlar reinforced sidewall. Among experienced offroaders that rock crawl in sharp rocks, the two most common radial tires you'll find (in sharp rocky trails) will be the BFG Krawler and Goodyear MT/R. I stopped running BFG Mud Terrains in sharp rocks because their sidewalls were getting cut every single trip. After switching to the first-generation non-kevlar GY MT/Rs, I experienced one cut sidewall in two sets of MT/Rs, and no cut sidewalls at all since switching to my present Kevlar reinforced MT/Rs.

I am generally going through some riverbeds and up the trails at Shoe Creek If you know it. Dont think its "sharp" rocks but lots of em. I have ridden the area with BFG AT and Maxis Mudders with no cuts so I think the Duratracs or BFG KM2 should be ok. I hope to Hit Oakridge this year too.

Not at all B.B. - I almost couldnt read the message from the residual vibration in my eye sockets from my last drive LOL, they were a cheap step up from the seperated tread, spacered & bent 8" wheel with no tread 35's that were on it when I got it. Price is everything on the up build process. I will run the 35 MTR when its ready for the daily drive. For now its trail rig mostly.
