Another tire thread...

i know there have been multiple threads about this, but I am about to put some new mud tires on my truck and am down to 3 tires: BFG KM2, Toyo MT and Pro Comp Xtreme MT. I am goin with 37's. I am off-road alot, mainly in the cotton and bean fields of the MS delta while hunting, so I need an aggressive tire. Who has run these tires, especially the Pro Comps? I really want to stick with load range E, which the BFG doesn't come in. I also don't really want to put a 13.50 (Toyo) on my stock wheel, which leaves the Pro Comp. Who has experience with these tires and what are ya'lls thoughts?

i have run the BFG(currently) and i replaced the pro comp with the bfg. The bfg is quieter, has better traction, and has less of a tendency to throw rocks on gravel roads. I had a bad experience with my pro comps that i believe to be an isolated incident. You can pm me about it if you want. But dollar for dollar the BFG's are a much better tire.

Here is the truck on the pro comps and then the bfg's

Thanks for the reply. I really don't want to have to deal with the TPMS going off every time I crank the truck, which I assume it will if I go with a load D tire and can't air it up past 60psi. I have always run BFG ATs in the summer and Co-op bias plys in the winter, but that was on my 1/2 ton. Does your tpms go off every time you turn the truck on? I'm also not too crazy about that sidewall design onthe ProComp either. Nice looking truck by the way.

So now that the Pro Comp is out, who wants to sell me on BFG KM2 vs Toyo MT?

Do you have a better pic of your truck with the KM2's? Or anybody else got a pic of the KM2's mounted?

I've heard good things on the Procomp Xtreme MTs, I've got 35" Xterrains on my offroad truck and have 40K + on them, so if the Xtreme MTs are anything like them, they should be a great tire. Wouldn't get anything other than Procomp for offroad.

I have run the toyos on and offroad and love em. Fairly quiet ride on road and great traction off road. They are wider but it really doesn't bother me. My next choice would be the KM2 or the interco m16s. I would have gone with the KM2 but like you, I wanted E load range.

here's a few pics of my pro comps, let me know how you think they held up to the riggers of a diesel truck





i had similar cracks on each and every tire, at that same point in the tread pattern. This was after only 20,000ish thousand miles, mostly highway. Towed a load about 5-6 times, the most weight ever was truck and trailer hit the scales at 19,000.
The last picture is an actual rupture that happened at highway speeds. Pro comp was nice enough to buy my BFG's for me
