BFG KM3 availability?

Looking for the 285/75/17 for my sons rig but everyone says 2-3 months before inventory. Why introduce a tire and not have inventory? Weird.

Reviews from magazines and blogs give it terrific ratings. Improved streetability compared to the KM2's is the biggest up everyone gives it.

They aren't releasing all sizes at one time. There are different release dates. This is very common for a new tire. The size you are looking for may have a later release date.

Tirerack.com says March next year for 285/75/17 or 70/17

That's a long wait.

I got sick of waiting so I ordered 285/75-17 KO2s instead. I figured they are the same strength tire, but sacrifice a tad bit of mud performance and gain better snow and rain performance so it'll be fine for me.
