BFG Km2s vs Toyo Mt

Can anyone tell me which is better? I will be in the snow and doing a good amount of highway and in town driving.

Which one is quieter? I have toyos now. I'd like to know if the km2s are better. How long will they last etc...

Toyo mt vs BFG Km2

Tire sizes are 38x15.50x20 on the toyo and 38x14.50x20 on the km2

Thanks in advance

stay with the toyo, it is a far superior tire.

I am not a fan of BFG's under trucks this heavy. I like them on 1/2 tons and Jeeps though.

Ive never ran toyo mts, but have ran the km2s on my old duramax and loved them. Quiet, wore good, good in snow, sand, towed good.

I have km2's on my truck right now and they are pretty great. I have had them for 6-7 months now and they still look brand new tread wise. If you rotate them every oil change they should last a long time. Ive read some get 45k-50k from them
As for performance and sound, in the city they are quite, at 70mph they are loud but what tire isnt. I have only beed in sand and mud and they seem to work great. The tread cleans itself really well and keeps on going.

toyo mt is far quieter, toyo mt is smoother, toyo mt lasts longer, if you were in a lot of muddy conditions I would say km2, I have to give it to toyo mt on this one

I've had both and I disagree, km2 is quieter, km2 is smother, km2 last longer, and your right km2 is better in sand mud snow just an all around better tire. My only problem with them is I haven't found them in load range E, but I haven't looked in a while either. If I wouldn't have gotten such a great deal on mine($1000.00w/wheels off craigslist, only had been run about 640 miles, still had the little nubs on them) I wouldn't be running the toyo's now, and when I bought these my brother in law actualy said "oh man your gonna hate those compaired to your bfg's) he had them on his 150 when I had bfg's on my dodge, him mostly highway me mostly city doing burnouts on mine all the time, when we sold the trucks his where under 50% mine where over 75% close to the same mileage. My toyos I have now have less than 7k miles just got them in march), rotate every 5k and they are getting close to 50%

I have to say our experiences were dramatically different it's odd how much tires vary from person to person

thank you for all the responses!

I have been looking at the km2s because i like the way they look. I have about 35k on my toyos now and they are doing alright but i think they could be doing better. granted i have not rotated them as I should.

I saw the km2s on jesse from mbrps truck and i loved the way it looked.

BUT

I will be in the snow constantly and I have driven my toyos in the snow a lot and they did perform fairly well. I have not driven any other tire in the snow though so i dont have anything to compare on my truck. I dont see too much mud. Just mainly dirt roads highway and snow.

thanks

It is weird how two people can run the same tire and have totally different results, but driving style does play a huge part in it.

I have ran the km2's in the snow, and the toyo's,although it wasn't much snow with the toyo's, and the bfg's kicked way more azz in the snow. I hardley ever put my truck in 4wd even with the winter we got over 2 ft of snow in less than 2 days. The same winter my b-i-l had the toyo's on his truck and was putting chains on or running around the whole time in 4wd.
