I'm running BFG KM2's. On my 3rd set right now. I've had a few different brands of AT's before switching to the MT, and have stuck with the KM2. The KM3's are starting to be tested out in the wild by non-BFG folks. I haven't seen a release date for the public, but am curious to see what's new for this new generation of tire. I also hope they continue making my size, 255/85/R16. It's gone in and out of production over the last few years. Damn Jeeps going to 17" wheels cut into the 16" market.

Here's a previous discussion: What are the absolute best mud tires?

Also depends on your vehicle. In the case of AT tires, there were not KO2s that fit my Outback, so I went with Geolandar A/T-S tires. Lots of good info in the Q&A forums for you to peruse (which is where I'm moving this thread.)

I only have 1500 miles on my Milestar Patagonia 285/75r16s, but I am very happy with them. Only the faintest low-frequency hum starting at 45-50mph, but I have had louder commuter tires on sedans so I am extremely happy with them.

They also balanced well with something like 5oz per tire.

I have only been out twice with them, mostly packed and loose sand and dirt, but even in 2WD they would slowly dig their way through the deep sand when I tried.

Going to put them on the wife's 4Runner TRDP as well.

Oh, I got them for $650 for the set.

I will qualify this statement by admitting I run DuraTracs, which are not a true MT but they work well in everything except sticky mud (which most mud is...). The friends I have that run MTs have had great success with and heavily recommend the Toyo MT. They have excellent grip, shed mud well and are quiet on the road.

Here is a size comparison photo with 265/75-16, 255/85-16 and 285/75-16.265-255-285 Toyo Mt.jpg

dick cepek extreme country are my favorite save a few $ over the KMs and they have more of an interlocking tread in the middle, noise is low (for an MT) and I like how they handle and wear.

I've always had great performance from BFG Mud's. This was the first I've heard of the KM3's being tested. Gotta go see if I can find any write-ups on them.
