BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain™ T/A® KM2 info needed
 
Since Goodyear has done away with the old MT/Rs tread design, I am looking for a tire that works as well as the old MT/R do. Right now I am looking for info on the BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain™ T/A® KM2. I want to know how well they do on the trails mainly in the East part of the Cascades (Naches, Manastash , Rimrock). I want to know if they work as well as the old MT/Rs do with staying on top of deep snow. Please post up if you run them. Tell me the good and the bad please.

I just don't want to spend the money to test them. I have seen a lot of the KM2 out on the trail and only a few of the new MT/Rs. I have little faith in the new MT/R design will work as well as the old for snow wheeling. I think Goodyear missed up a good thing. I hope I am wrong. I like the old MT/Rs so well, I have them on three of my rigs. Two XJs and the FS Blazer. Look for a set for the Sami too.

Anyway I thing I should find a good replacement tire since some of my MT/Rs are getting wore down.

This should help you make a decision....decent real world experience with the new tire:

Thanks. I need to know how they snow wheel. That is where my doubts are. I do a lot of snow wheelin'. With the old MT/Rs my low rider with only a rear locker does pretty well. The tires make this happen.

So how well do they work in the snow? Great!!

I have the KM (1?) on my Rubicon (these came from the factory) here in Spokane and with the over 90 inches of snow each of the past 2 winters, I had absolutely no problems getting around the unplowed streets. In fact when I upgrade from the current 32 to 35s, I will replace the stock KM with the KM2.
