New BFGoodrich Tires

I was just wondering if anyone happened to get their hands on a set of the new BFG Mud Terrain KM2's. I ordered a set of the "original" mud terrain's and they called back and said that they had the "new" tread design and would send those instead if that was ok....Well, not looking into it further I assumed that it would look like the tread on the new Wrangler Rubicon since it is a little different than the normal BFG "M/T". Boy was I a little suprised when they got here and look very similar to their Krawler Competition tire. Looks like it's loud and will wear fast, just wondering if anyone had a first impression of them yet. I guess I will probably run them since they are here, they look "cool", and I have a pretty high tolerance for lack of road manners, but I really hope they don't wear out too fast....Those suckers are expensive. Thanks.

BFG's were more than Toyos????? Where did you get your Toyos, because every where I've looked they are at least 100 bucks more a tire.....I'm looking for a set of 35's to go with the lift I got for the truck ( cough, cough Vendors) and I wanted to go Toyo because they are suppose to be a awesome mud tire and last a long time for a mud tire, but they are too expensive, especially when I have to buy 6 of them ......for right now I'm torn between the new KM2 or the Nitto Terra Grapplers.....sorry Green I would have them already but I can't make up my mind....let me know how you like them

I definitly will post up what I think about them. I personally don't like the Nitto's. I found the same thing with the tire prices. Toyo's were WAY more expensive than BFG's, not to mention I wasn't sure if I would have trouble with the clearance of the 37X13.50 that toyo makes instead of the 37X12.50 of the BFG's, but those were my two choices. Well, here are some pics uninstalled....I will post up later tongiht hopefully after I get them on. (They would have been on already, only they forgot to ship the lugnuts). Oh yeah, National Tire & Wheel had the best prices I could find on the Toyo's, but they couldn't compete with the prices for the rims I picked out.

Lift Kits, Tires & Wheels by 4 Wheel Parts
They did forget to ship the lugnuts, but I called them at 6pm or something last night and they had them here today when I got off of work. The best part is for $20 a wheel they said that they could give me a lifetime (as long as I own them) warranty against almost everything. Corrosion, bent rim, cracked rim, accidental curb check, and if I send them the rim, they would send me a new one! I couldn't believe it. Not to mention it only took two days of shipping to get here. (It did take them a little longer to get them "in stock") Well, gotta head back out and put the other 3 on....lol. I was just checking lugnut torque values.
