Tire Selection Help
 
Current Set Up -2002 X 4.0l, 5 speed manual, 3.73 gears

I will be installing a set of Metal Cloak Arched fenders in the next month and moving up to a 33" tire. I don't want to go above that because of the gearing and stock 30/35 diffs.

I live in Colorado and encounter all 4 seasons (sometimes in the same day). I will be doing weekend wheeling.

I am trying to decide on a tire to match all of this... So far I am looking at the 33" duratrac and the 33" MT KM2.

I have never had MTs and don't know how they handle snow/ice and a good bit of city driving...

What are your opinions?

How much do you offroad? I have the DuraTracs an they are great in snow an mud an for a DD, but I will probably go 35's next go around an get the bfg km2's because I offroad up to 4 times a month an I hear the km2's are still great for a DD but will benefit more offroad bein a true mt

Well in spring, summer and fall I'll be going out as much as possible probably 3+ times a month.

I would go with the km2. I hear they wear great on road an last a pretty good amount of time an they have a stronger sidewall then the DuraTracs so that is always a bonus offroad as well. I would have got the km2's first but I didn't think I was goin to be able to offroad as much as I have. Sayin thus though the DuraTracs are very capable, very light weight an have exceed my expectations an I love them
