cool, thanks! I think I am good for 4 of them. was trying to find some Dayton Timberline MT's in that size, but it does not appear that anyone sells them anymore. I have a *mint* spare in that brand & size, and was hoping to save some cash.

oh well!

KM2 in 255-85-16 on Moab rims with 3-4" of suspension lift works surprisingly well...

What the H is a PBR tire?

Offroad and in the rocks, nothing will touch a Irok. Street and mild trails, I like the Cooper STT

Is BFG gonna make the KM2s in 255/75/17 to replace the KM1 stock rubicon sizes? I was thinking about getting the KM2s but right now they only still have the original in my size 255/75/17 and the KM2s in 33"s.

I've got the km2 in 35/12.5/18 and so far I like them. Ok on road, great in mud and on rocks, but have to say they suck on ice/snow.

Pit Bull Rockers. Ill take them over an IROK. I thought you guys wheeled on this forum. You want some info on them search it on pirate. They are the best tire I have run hands down.

Yeah yeah, just never heard that term. They are made 90 miles from me. The thing I don't like about um is the ballooning of the center. A guy in my group tried them for about a year and although pretty impressive, not nearly as sticky as an Irok. But as always, it all depends on what you do.

They balloon when aired up, I cant say I wheel with much air in them (5-7 lbs) and they are not balooned at all then, which is when it matters.

You are right they are not as sticky as a "sticky" IROK but a run of the mill IROK bias, I would have to disagree with you there. PBR is about as close to a sticky IMO youre going to get without getting a comp tire.

I am running 35" KM2s. I love wheeling them when it's dry or a little damp out, but in mud all they do is load up and don't clean out very well. Excellent on the rocks though!

I never said IROKs were crappy tires, they are not. I just prefer these. FYI these tires were a week only in the pic, the sidewalls come very stiff from the factory and need a few runs to be broken in nice but you already knew that right.
