Nice find!  When I got mine a few years ago they came out to $216 mounted and balanced (cash price) but I had to drive to Hamden to drop the old tires & rims off and back the next day to pick them up...  You will like having fresh rubber on all 4 corners instead of one new one and 3 old ones  :wink:

Yep, I'll mount and balance myself. One of the remaing 3 was already replaced and has less than 5 k on it. That will be my primary spare. I'll keep the best of the two Mud Kings as my spare spare that stays in the tow rig when we travel.

For the price didn't figure more research was required.

I almost pulled the trigger on a set of Cepecs for $600 after rebate until I found the KM2's

I run D C Crushers 35 x12.5x15 Bead locked no weights inside or out. I can hear my radio on road and they work great off road.  I dont think they are as good as the TSLs I took off in the wet stuff , but I havent lost a filling since , and the amps arent really needed anymore .    Several friends have the DC MT and they like them.   FjR68

I have had 37" Nitto Mud Grapplers for quite a while. Chrissy's Jeep has 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers. I have wheeled both Jeeps hard and will be going with 37" Trail Grapplers when my Mud Grapplers have to be replaced.

Both sets of tires are on beadlocks and have 10 oz. of Dynabeads.

Glad this came back up discussion.  Im still 50/50 on whether to get 2 new Swampers or sell my SX collection and get a set of M/T's.  The Jeep ran Amazing at Fall Crawl and not sure I want to change that... yet.

Anyone know of a 37 that is a 15" rim?  Really don't want to go back down to 35's that measure close to 33's...  That aren't stupid money...

But then I see these....  :mrgreen:

saw those.  Kinda hard to justify when I drove my jeep less than 100 miles this year.   I may need to steal the 37" MTR's off the Turtle!

Wow that's a great price...$30 less than Q-78's!....and they make them in a 35x10.00-15 that's actually $5 less than the 34" LTB's  :surprised: Those might be Q-Killers, I wonder what durometer the compound is?

Those might be Q-Killers,

Just saw this as well. Grab a set and why wouldnt you want the warranty! I dont see a time limit and appears to be based solely on tread depth, cover off-roading, and you dont have to prove tire rotation/alignment.

Does anyone have a suggestion for an MT that is about a 33" diameter but narrower than the standard 12.50" (15" rim)?

I like the size of the 34x10.50 LTB at 33.6" diameter, also looking at the BFG KM2 33x10.50 (32.8" actual diameter). Any others like that?

I mounted and bead balanced my new KM2's over the weekend. What a difference in drivability!

Only other options I know of are a metric equivalents which tend to be a little skinnier.

I think I'm going 33x10.50 BFG...it's a little smaller than I was thinking but 35x10 SX-II is bigger than I want (but damn tempting) and the LTB's are silly expensive for what they are (my 1st set of LTB's were $125, they want almost $250 now!) and they wear like pencil erasers!

Those Dick Cepecs don't look bad.

I'm looking for a 33 x 10.5 x 15 KM2 also.  I haven't seen any at the flea markets this year.  Maybe lake Compounce next month.
