I have not had them long enough to see how they wear. I am expecting an alright wear on these since they are made by BFG and they are made for the road as well as off. The styling of them is great. I love the way they look on the truck. I was not ure how they would from the pics online but in person they are great. The sidewalls are pretty simple and it works. The tread does look kinda like a crawler style tire which is prety cool. All in all I really like these tires.

There also is the BFG A/T KO tires. I have them on my 11 Ram and I like them as well. I have them in a 305/55/20 which is a little more then a 33" tall tire. These tires make no noise at all. They have great tread wear and they last a long time. They are not as aggressive as the KM2s but they still look good. These are made for the road and you can tell.

I definitely am I BFG fan and would recommend both of these tires to every and anyone that wants a great performing tire that looks and works good
Hey Skat, do you have any pics of your truck with the KM2s? I was thinking the same think you said about not being too sure what they looked like online so I'd really like to see them installed.

I had the AT KOs on my last truck and like them a lot but just want a more aggressive look this time.

Thanks!

I run BF A/T KOs on my 2006. I have my truck leveled and have the 285/65R20s on them. I am basically running a 35" tire but they are about an inch narrower than the 12.5. I was worried about rubbing issues with the 12.5s but again I have a 06 and am not familiar with the 09. If you like larger wheels and want a 35" tire, I definitely recomment these. Good luck

I have Cooper Discoverer ST 25x12.5x17s on my truck. I have only put about 1000 miles on them so can't say much about them. They have a little hum but not too loud. They look really aggressive but I have not had a chance to put them in the mud yet. They were good in a couple downpours I was in. The only problem I had with them was getting them balanced. I had to get them balanced twice and the second time got it done.

You can't go wrong with a BFG. I have the nitto terra grapplers on mine and they have over 30k on them and show very little wear

i've got 33'' dick cepek mud countrys that i really like. i've got about 20k on them and the wear is great. they were quiet at first then as they broke in a little they got a little louder, definitely can tell they're mud tires. they've done great in the mud as well, been stuck a few times but it wasn't really the tires fault. also great in the rain, pretty good in the snow (i always drive a little slower and am a little more cautious regardless of my tires when its packed down and pretty icey). overall a great tire tho

Nitto mud grapplers. Very aggressive but they are really loud.

I have a stock 2011 and I put nitto's on it. 305/70/17 or 34/12.50/17. I have always ran BFG's but i have been happy with them so far. Plus with the right off-set they fit stock..

Hello there, I've read everyone's quick replies. They're all good choices.
i'm new to this forum, i just started Today. I would also recommend Mickey Thompson Baja Mud Terrains, they have that aggresive look without that loud hum, but it isn't completly quiet and are great for an everyday driver. i just ordered some 35x12.5r17 for my Dodge but won't get them till Tuesday.

Hope I helped,
Haave a great one.
