Swkenobi had a good point. How do the KM2s handle on icy/slushy/snowy roads?
MT Baja ATZa...havent seen these on the forum much. anyone know how they handle?

Dude, did you just blow out the left rear in the pic? I would be surprised if the bead didn't let go, damn.
I plan on going to 33s this fall and am having the same questions. I really want the KM2s but they are not siped so I have no idea how they will handle the icy/slushy/snowy roads here in CO. Been considering the Duratracs but heard you can only expect 25k miles on them, not sure how true that is. I also like the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs, look good and have a good reputation.

Very happy with my 33x10.50 BFG MTs. I put them on AR Outlaw IIs 15x7, with 3 3/4" back spacing. The wheels push the tires out a bit from stock... so I used Rubicon flares to cover the tread (all but 1/4"). Tread coverage is required in PA... and I'm "close enough" for my inspection station.

|jtaghansen||Go with the KM2's everyone loves them. I will be getting a set this fall.|

|Minn_wild1||I'm running the BFG A/T's in 33X10.5X15. They are relatively light (for a 33" tire) and perform well on and off road.|

|98 wrangler||what size wheels do you have? i have 16 in. and am running 285-75-16 which is 33-11.50. i am running mud kings and i like them alot!!|

|TJDave||Toyo makes a 33x10.5x15 MT tire. A guy I work with just put them on his Jeep and loves them. I ran their 33x12.5x15 for years and liked them, except they were heavy. The 10.5's should not be so heavy.|

|doclouie||33x10.50 tires are not common and the only mainstream manufacturer that I am aware of that makes them is BF Goodrich in their all terrain and their mud terrain. 33x12.50 tires are very common and are dime a dozen by most companies.|

|KRawson||Don't get the procomp they are terrible imo. My old man ran them on his rubi and hated them. now he runs BFG km2 33x12.50, I run GY mtr kevlar 33x12.50 couldn't be happier. . Buddy runs cooper discoverer stt and loves them|

|TJe0454||what are u going to be using them for primarily? if its mostly highway/city, go duratracs. if u are going to be doing moderate offroading, go with either KM2s, MTRs, or another tire. i wish i had gotten KM2s...|

|eugenesonrisa||You can get 33x10.5 and not need new wheels.|
|08-11-2011 02:30 PM|
|Turtles TJ||Take a look at the Cooper Discoverer STT's. Only reason I didnt get them was I couldnt afford them.|
|08-11-2011 02:27 PM|
yep thats why consumer reviews are better.
I get around 14-15 in town and 17 on the highway, but mpgs are gona be the same on almost any tire of the same size, it depends more on gear ration, engine size, weight of the jeep, etc.
|08-11-2011 02:22 PM|
so you say Duratracs.. ill look in to them. what kind of milage do you get on them?
I was just hoping to get some real feedback form jeepers, not just product reviews from the manufacture. all the reviews make it seem that their tire is great and will last. actual performance may differ. maybe i should have asked: What tires do you run and why?
|08-11-2011 02:09 PM|
|GoldenSahara00||if your going to 33s, its gona be hard to find a 10.5. that being said good tires are duratracs, km2, just look around. sounds like you already kinda know your answer.|

stepping up to 33s?
so im looking to step up to some 33s. I need to be able to go through sand,rocks, snow and mud. (idaho has all kind of trails) do you all have any recommendations? i was thinking more of km2s or pro comp radial Xterrain. also i'm not sure about width 10.5 or 12.5. i am open to any brand so please give me your opinion. post pics if you have them.
NOTE: i don't care about looks/noise, function takes priority.
I have a 2000 Sport with a 4" pro comp lift, I6, d30/d44 and it is my DD.
