It looks like my BFG AT/KOs were the only tires still packed in with this glue-like mud.
The guy I wheel with the most has KM2. They are good, but suck on road. I considered getting those.

The only downside is that I wont get to use my winch as much, and I have to get used to hitting the gas more since these grip like crazy. My AT's I had on spun when I punched it so I never stalled, thats not going to happen too easy with these.
man your making me excited to get then!

They also claimed that they were able to stay in 2wd longer in places that they had to reach for the "short stick" for with any other mud/rock type tire. Worth checking into at least?
I wanted to say this post is the reason I got the Crushers. I looked up reviews on these and all of them said the same thing about them being awesome. It took me a while to find enough people who ran them out and could tell me the mileage to expect (about 35k-40k rotating 5). I did see a few magazines reviewed these as well as a lot of Jeepers. I am sure I will be happy with these.

OverkillYJ BIAS are soft and should be for a primarily offroad or trailered rig. They are great when you need the tire to conform to rocks or something. They ride like hell on road though.

cakes567 Whats the advantage to having a radial tire?

First, Regarding the Mickey Thompson claws... They have a 23° angle just like a tractor tire... Which means they have great traction however, when you're backing up if you need to it becomes a ROLLING tire.

I second the vote for the Mickey Thompson MTZ's... I bought a Jeep with them on with about 20% tread left.... I have been thoroughly impressed with how they hook up when they're aired down. Ive aired them down to as low as 9 pounds without Beadlocks with no problems ! Good road traction, Not too loud.
I just pulled the hammer on a set of bead locks and I'm going to put new MTZ's on those wheels. Goodyears MTR's are about $60 more a tire...Great tire but expensive. However...The people that have run the MTZ's never have anything bad to say that about them... If both tires cost the same I would probably run MTZ's again!

00TJSport Just ordered my 33x12.50 Wild Country MTX's. Trading my BFGoodrich 31's for $300 and getting 4 brand new MT's for $500.
The tire shop wants to put a bag of balancing beads? in each tire to help the balancing. Never heard of that. Anyone use them before. He explained that the beads are loose in the tire, and when the tire turns the beads balance the tire by centrifugal force??? Advice??
