I had the km2 and liked them, and just put on a new set of pro comp extreme AT. The pro-comps are nice tires, they seem pretty quite and well behaved. I have heard only good things about them so they must be a good tire.

I highly suggest the Kumho Road Venture M/T KL71..... better tire than any of the ones you listed... great on road, great offroad... the Toyo M/T would be my second choice... KM2's are my third... I have had great experience with all of these, but the Kumho by far is my Favorite

Nitto has the Trail Grappler, and it looks like a really nice tire. A buddy of mine has a set on his super duty(Matt at Spartan Diesel) and he says they are terrific tires.

Well, I know the KM2s are a REALLY good tire. Lots of good things I have heard about them. I had a set of the Mud terrain KOs on my F-150 and they were awesome.

Matt says the trail grappler did great in the 15" of snow we had down here last month. and they should last you a long time too.

ive run a few sets of the toyo m/ts on nothing but straight abuse and got about 40k out of each set. as far as i am concerned they are an amazing tire! i also like the look of the Toyo m/t over most any other set of tires!

As stated above, airing down is one of those basic tips that not only helps in mud but applies pretty much across the board as far as offroad driving goes. However when it comes to mud airing down can be a double sided sword. Airing down (reducing tire pressure) can help to gain traction when mud seems to be bottomless and traction is hard to find. But on the flip side airing down in mud that has a hard bottom can sometimes reduce the traction since a tire aired up to higher pressures will have a sawing effect on the bottom. Additionally reducing air pressure for mud means that hidden obstacles in the mud (tree roots, rocks, sticks, etc) can present the potential for more damage to your sidewalls. Airing down also means that attacking these same obstacles might provide better traction as the tire conforms over the obstacles.
