Hi,

Any idea how these compare to a stock 80 series tire in terms of size?
Thanks,
Abe

hmmmm I need to think about this. How are the road manners for the KM2s? I've heard that 255/85s are super skinny witch helps with how loud they are on the road..s is this correct?

They are fine on dry roads, hook up great on the couple of very small experiments off road, and totally suck in the snow hense my decision to sell them. That and the looks of the skinny tire bothered me (always ran 12.50's). I had done a lot of reading on siping and got really mixed reviews. Never the less, I decided since it was only a $52 investment I'd try siping them and if that didn't make me happy I'd continue on with the sale.
My take on siping on this tire is that it was a night and day difference. My old rig was better/safer in 2wd than this was in 4wd and after siping I'm totally happy with the tires. And from this experience I would highly recommend siping to anyone running a mud terrain tire.:thumb:

I like to keep my rigs looking nice and with my 1st gen with 12.50's it was a total mess every time we got the least bit of snow. I'm now happy with the skinny tire as I don't feel like I'm destroying my rig every time I take it out in bad weather, but I think it will do great with the mild/moderate wheeling I plan on doing with this rig.

That said.... I'm keeping them:thumb:
