05-21-2012, 10:14 PM
hey guys, im about to step into the mud tire market and I had my eyes on the bfg km2's? ive always had bfg all terrain tires and Im looking for something more agressive. How many miles can I expect out of these tires? they will be on an 03 z71. Im thinking about going with 305/70/17? would they scrub? my truck has a 2.5 lift installed! anyone that has had these tires and are willing to tell me the good and bad about them I will certainly appreciate it!
Thanks in advance

I had km1's 285/75r16 for my last set.
Got 35,000 mile, but were cupping on the outer edge, to the wear mark.
You should get 40,000 miles out of them, with x rotation every 5,000 miles.

I had them on my '04 Wrangler for awhile, but I didn't have the Jeep long enough to know what kind of milage to expect. Honestly, I think they are a bit overpriced. Milage will TOTALLY depend on driving habits. I am hard on tires so if I get 25-30,000 out of a MT I am over joyed.

I have the 305/70/17 on an 05 Sierra 1500 Z71 with 2.5" RC kit and they only rubbed in reverse fully extended for about the first thousand miles. I am about 300 miles away from 50k and they need to be replaced. Only bad thing Ive found is that on the highway you literally have to yell to talk to anyone else in the truck because they are so damn loud. I'm planning on getting 315 BFG A/T next.

Once worn down I can believe this, but they were one of the quietest MT's I have ever ran when mine were new. Hell, I had them on a Wrangler and anyone who has ever sat in one of those knows there isn't crap for sound deadening...on top of that the thing rarely had doors and a top on it, that put the front tire at almost arms reach.

If you drive easy and take care of them they will last 40-50k. They are a much better tire than the A/T. You should be able to fit them with no problems.
