I'm considering moving up from 37's to 40's after I relocate my rear axle.

I have 5 of the new BFG KM2 radials in 37x12.50x17. I bought these new for Cruise Moab in April, the 4 on the ground have far less than 250 miles on them since the vehicle is always trailered and never driven on pavement. The 5th one is my spare and has never been on the ground.

New these were $330 each or $1650 for all 5. I am considering selling these for $250 each or $1250. Anyone interested?

This is the best picture I have of them currently, I can get detailed photos if you're interested.

Sounds like a good buy, but the timing just isn't quite right... Were you happy with them?

They're great, excellent traction, but the :Princess: wants bigger tires and who am I to say "no" to that :thumb:

Already got those plus his hub gears, and they're still guaranteed for life as long as I don't go any bigger than 40's

Man those are what I want. Bad timing for me too. Have they been good tires? I'm really interested in those KM2s.

They go away fast if you plan on driving Squishy to and from distant locations like Moab.

Lemme know when you get that diesel truck and trailer, I might want to borrow it sometime, son. :lmao:

They've been great tires so far, if I replace them it's only cause I want to go to a bigger size. The jury is still out, I may just end up keeping them.

These are supposed to be pretty good about getting decent longevity/wear when you run them on the street. They're radials, they have a harder rubber compound and the tread design. The KM2's are supposed to be a pretty good compromise for a dual use on/off road tire. They arent Baja Claws and they arent gonna go 60K miles.

I found a set of Goodyear Radial MT/R's in 40x14x17. Anyone have any feedback on those? The write ups I've seen seem to give them excellent marks for durability and wear and very good marks for traction on rocks and the terrain we deal with typically. They seem to be an equivalent tire to the KM2 just in a larger size.

The KM2 don't wear out that fast but you definatly do not want them for the highway unless you have a serious stereo system!

I have those on my pickup in 35x12.5x15 and they've been great tires. I would buy them again, but tires are just so stinking expensive...
