Went with the Goodyear huh. They must be a good tire, thats all Rokmen runs.

I've been thinking about running them when my Toyo's die.

35x12.50x15 they had to order them. I'm in no hurry, good thing I would have bought something different.

Will be curious to hear how well you like these and how well they do in rocks and snow. I'm not 100% happy with my 35" Cooper Discoverer STTs and have considered the ProComp Extreme for my next set.

I hope I'm not wrong but I did some research on this. Pro Comp MT2 tires, there compared to the Toyo MT's, (Toyo MT's Rock)! I'm leaving the BFG KM2 after 40,000 miles and they still are on good shape (lots of tire left). My only complaint is km2 suck in the snow!

Heard good things about the mt2. Pretty sure they are made by maxxis. I'll be interested in your review as will, they look like a pretty good tire

Not if you deflate to 12 lbs.
I was all over the place on the way home today with 30 psi. Aired down I can pull a semi out of a ditch.

Well 4 Wheel Parts Warehouse, mounted and installed my new Extreme MT2 yesterday. I must say the drive home was awesome? All 5 took 1.5 oz. of weights to get the them balanced. That's pretty impressive. I had a ton off weights on the old KM2. Looking forward to wheeling now.

Right, KM2 were $239 the MT2's are $259 for the 35 x 12.50 x15. I am definitely not disappointed.
