bfg mt km2 vs goodyear duratrac

ive read that bfg as of late isnt making that great of a tire anymore... and goodyear seems to be fairly popular...
getting 31x10.5 on 15's... its my daily driver and i'm going to want to take it offroading... i haven't checked any local shops yet, but tirerack has them priced pretty close...
or is there another set of rubber i should be looking at for about the same price? ($150/tire)

I can't say much about the BFG's, but I LOVE my Duratracs!!! Great on and offroad, quiet and smooth.

I have a set of 35/12.5 on my rig and have over 1500 miles and love them. Great on the highway very minimal noise, great in the snow, great on the rocks and they seem good on the beach as well. The wear seems to be avearage as well, had swampers and glad to get rid of them.

You answered your own question. Get the duratracs. The KM2's are a mud/rock tire.

I found similar results when I was looking for mine. Ended up buying from my local tire shop, paid a bit more, but easy to fix any issues and free mount/balance/rotations made it worth the difference.....

They price match!! Also there is not sales tax,shipping, or mounting/balancing when buying wheels and tires.
The lifetime balance is an issue though.

I bought 5 -33x12.5. Duratrac and they saved me over $200. I ended up paying 140 per tire.

I had a set of Nitto's ordered but they told me today 16 weeks. Now I am looking at KM2's. Local shop wants $210/tire mounted, balanced, new stems for 33x12.5x15.

I've had a set of 31x10.50 and 33x12.50 KM2's and have loved them. Wish they would clean a little better in deep mud though. Got stuck the other day and they were packed tight.

Whats the major difference between the KM and the KM2s?

I just bought a set of BFG KM2 35 12.50x15's about a month ago, had them out wheeling 3 times and Absolutly love Them!!! They perform very well on the rocks and in loose soil conditions! I did have them in some deep mud this past weekend and they seemed to load up pretty easy. Overall they are great for me so far, and ride very well on the road and love them off road since I don't really like the mud anyways!
