    Time for tires again

    Well, my BFG KM2 won't pass another inspection, they are just too bald. So, it's time to get some new tires. I've been happy with the KM2s, however that's all I've ever had on my Jeep, so I don't really have anything to compare it to.

    I'm tempted to get another set of KM2's - Discount tire has them for $198 each.

    I see they also have Falken Wildpeak M/T01 for $180 each. Are these any better / worse than the KM2?

    Finally, they have KM3s for $253 each. Are these $50 better than the KM2?

    I know this is more opinion than science, but I'd like to hear what you guys have to say.

    Re: Time for tires again

    I recently put Falken Wildpeaks on my JK. Not had them long enough to get any opinion on wear but they look nice and seem to get good traction. I don't do any off roading other than going up/down my mountain driveway. Mine cost $167 per tire - 255/70R-18

    Time for tires again

    $50 better? Maybe $20 better they just charge you $50 for it...
    I just went from the old AT KO to the AT KO2. The old ones literally dry rotted off the jeep before the thread was gone.

    I do like the Geolandar MT G003

    The KM3s are worth the extra $50 if you get into rocks or slick rock much. Otherwise, the KM2s are a good tire and you have experience with them.

    Re: Time for tires again

    I should have updated this thread - I ended up getting the KM3s from discount tire - they gave me a pretty good deal on them.

    I like the look of the new KM3s better than the KM2s.


    AJH - I really like the look of those tires - very nice

    Re: Time for tires again

    Geez, I've had the KM2's on Black Betty for so long they'll probably rot out before I'll wear 'em out. Guess I'm a fair weather jeeper eh?
    Quick fixes are so named for how long they stay fixed.
    If you run out of gas, no matter which way you decide to push, the closest gas station will always be uphill and in the other direction. Corollary: The likelihood of running out increases when all of the nearby gas stations are closed.
    The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep.
    We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch).
