Default Tires....which one????

Looking to get some 35's for our new rig. Want something aggressive but street friendly. This will be a DD for some time. BTW, the tires will be going on an 04 TJ.

Looked at the BFG KM2's. Was told as long as I get them sipped they will work good in the rain/snow/ice. ???? Has anyone done this?

Also, looked at the Toyo MT's and ProComp extreme MT's. Toyos are heavy but haven't heard too much about them in our PNW trails. Same goes for the PC extreme MT's.

Any thoughts?

What do you run on your rig and how do they do street/trail?

I have a set of BFG all terrains on my CJ-5 and love them. I have been at Browns Camp (TSF) with them and done just fine, Sand Lake they are great, gravel logging roads, great around town and they work awesome in the snow.

I have a few friends that have Toyos and they said they would never get them again.

Just my $.02

I've seen Toyo's on the trail. They seem to perform well. On the road some people complain the Toyo's don't last. I've seen others get 40k miles. They are typically rated well for weight capacity. I'm running BFG MT's. They do not perform well in extreme gooey mud. On the trail, rock, wet rock and the street they are great.

MTR Kevlars will rock your world. Good on highway ride, balances well, strong sidewall, great traction variety (mud is still an effort, but I'm not into that kind of wheeling). Sipe them and even better.

I run them on the crawler and on old school aluminum rims they hold a bead at 5psi easy.

Thanks for the response. I have posted the same question on other forums and the majority of responses have been towards the Goodyear MTR's.

I would like to get the BFG KM2's. They seem to be doing well on the company rigs, however, it seems they are lacking in the mud area. And since this is the PNW and not the wonderful peoples republic of california, mud happens.

Looks like I will be looking at getting some MTR's.

Thanks for the help everyone
