I vote no on Km2's personally if you're going that route, I'd get something else. Otherwise stick with BFG AT just to play it safe...

km2s are nice but pricey brand new in a 35. but i know they will last almost as long as the a/t. dont wanna sacrifice too many mpgs either.

Go with falkens.

I've run both BFG AT and the wildpeaks.

By far I like the wildpeaks much better.

More and more people are finally realizing it. BFG AT's are outdated, they chunk way easier, and they're ugly (which is a matter of opinion, I know)

As for the falkens sucking in mud, it's an all terrain, they all suck in deep mud.
But in mild mud they are great. Best tire I've ever used. And will continue to use it.

Especially for the price, and 50,000 mile warranty, it's honestly the best choice. Ask anyone who's switched to them from BFG's.
they're great tires.

i 100% disagree.
have you seen the falkens in person? way more agressive than pictures make them out to be. and way better than BFGs in mud. I ran both.

maybe the mud is different by you, but up here its real sticky. lots of clay. and the bigger voids in the falkens clear out WAY easier than the smaller voids in the BFG's

bfg's are not more agressive at all.

such an overplayed tire. and stupid expensive for what you get.

Lol falkens with full tread look like a street tire! Cant get much more gay that that on a lifted truck Worn down BFG's still have the side lugs to look beefy with...

I'll chime in a bit. My best friend runs the falkens on all his cars, and he lives in the middle of nowhere on dirt. I am very familiar with how they perform vs. my old 32" BFG A/T's and this is what I'll say.

1. The BFG's hold grip on dirt roads way better, they have less tendency to slide it seems. Could be a good or bad, depending on your desires to drift or not haha.
2. The falkens are a much quieter smoother on-road tire
3. Falkens IMO look like a street tire, which = bad to me.
3. In mud both suck, but again the falkens slide and slip more it seems
4. Both seem to last plenty long

after owning both i can vouch for all of that. and they do look way too much like a street tire. and id take a bald looking bfg over a bald falken, those are straight ugly when worn.
