Default need advice

ok so i have been looking and looking at tires for over a month now cause im waiting for my tax returns, i wanted the bfg all terrain and im getting the tires in a 33x12.5x15. but the more i think about it the more i think about the km2 what do you guys think? ill be on a 3 inch BL and i have the t-bars cranked with add a leaf springs out back. they should fit fine, but i dont commute far to work, and i like to play in the hills, so what do you all think? should i pay 100 extra for the km2 tires or should i go with the all terrains?

a few thoughts are tread life differences and mileage differences, im not really worried about road noise. but i do go on some occasional trips that are 3-5 hours about once a month, so i do some distance driving so i dont want them to wear down too fast...

thoughts?

i have heard that the Cooper Discover S/T LT tires are a really good all terrain and they wear good if you wanna look at those. But otherwise i would go with the km2
