Sorry guys, but they are the best tires. I cannot wait to get some more offset wheels to get some 33inch bff mud terrains.
Honestly though I’ve had Generals and Coopers, all greats tires.
I’m convinced if you stick with the tires I deem suitable you will be successful in life!!!

My credo
built, not bought
If I remember right, michelin bought out B.F.G. , so really it means your a michelin fan. Its not that they are bad tires, just pricey. Last tires I bought were $75 a tire goodyear wranglers. Not the best tire out there, but they are round and hold air. And its a upgrade over the 8 year old tires I had been running.

Pirelli makes the best tire compound for the climate I live in but the meanest off road tires I have used are Mickey Thompson's, no question.

Baja Belted for sand
Claws for dirt

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

They do. I worked for Michelin when they made the purchase.

Yup. I’m still a fan of Michelin and BFG.

I ran BFG AT tires on all my off-road vehicles from around 1978 to 2007. I really liked them and got good mileage out of them (60-70K miles). I then decided I wanted to run MT tires off-road and went to a tire that was made by Cooper but was another brand. I don't recall the brand now. I liked them a lot for off-road and were better off-road than the BFG AT tires. Unfortunately, the belts started breaking in three of the tires with barely 30K miles on them.

I decided to go back to BFG for my off-road tires and the KM2 was the choice. So far that has been the right choice and am very happy with them. They have around 35K miles on them and run very true. I have only had them balanced once since the initial installation.

I also run Michelin LTX MS tires when I am not on off-road trips. They are a really good tire for almost anything other than off-road. I got over 80K miles on the first set and they still had a decent amount of thread. They were still running true and smooth, but were getting pretty old and I wanted better depth tread for rainy conditions. I am on my second set now and am still very happy with them. I have decide I don't want to deal with two sets of tires anymore and am going back to an AT tire when my Michelin and BFG KM 2 tires wear out. I have not decided which brand to go with but it must come in a 10.5x33-15 size.

100 percent fail rate in 35 years of buying them before advertised milage was rolled through. But that's most tires.

Last year I was digging half tread 40k mile 2009 BFG MT's out of the barn to get by with as my 2016 Cooper AT3's were slipping belts. 3 over the summer. Aside from "No Hunting" signs on fenceposts I have little use for a Cooper.

Really liking my Falkens now.
