Default BFG KM2/Mt. or. Kumho KL71 ??

80 for the kumho's
115 for the BFG Km2's


Personally I think they both look great, specially the Bfg's,
Has anyone fitted these or know anyone who has?

Am ordering one or the other next week, I'm leaning towards
the BFG's in a 31 x 10.5 they looks awesome but would like your opinion.

Just a quick note, I'm only getting them for looks lol I hear they both
ride pretty good on the road, won't be doing much serious off road maybe 10% lol it's all about how it looks, not bothered about road noise or handeling as long as it will go anywhere and look nails :-)

IMHO, the BFG KM2 tires look a lot better, so just based on looks I would get those. Plus, I've only heard positive things about the BFG KM2s, so great looking tire, great performing tire, win win. It's just expensive...

I'd go with the Kumhos. I've heard great things about both, but to be honest everyone has the km2's. They're kinda like the Ford Taurus of tires. A good car but there's one on every corner. Go with the Kumhos. They are still a great tire, and will be something different. Plus I think they would have better street manners.
