I run 35" KM2s. Mine use several tire weights per wheel. I bet the Nittos balance better than my BFGs do.

Thoughts on the Toyo M/T?

Can't comment on much else other than the Nittos because that is all I have ever had.

I have 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers and I love them. Look beefy, have thick treads, "E" load rating (basically meaning they can take a lot to the sidewall as well as good for towing), and the do great on the trails (hence the name). They also are relatively quiet as a daily driver compared to other trail type tires. That said, they are one of the heaviest 35" tires on the market (which contributes to their durability), but also brings into consideration a couple of other things (like your tire carrier on the back, possibly wanting to reinforce the axles, possibly getting bigger brake pads). They also will cost a little more than some of the comparable tires and cut down MPG more than some others (very slightly though, as any 35" tire is going to cut MPG).

They are a fantastic tire, no question. If I had to do it again, based on my personal experience of how much I wheel on trails (just occasionally, nothing crazy), I would probably get Duratracs. Still a very capable tire and look good, but lighter and slightly cheaper as well.

Good luck!

Decent on and off road. Typically I have to air down more.

And they're heavy.
