need tire help km2 mt- or open country mt

Looking for help decided on a set of tires for a jeep. Looking at bfg mt km2 or toyo open country mt's. The size is 33x10.5x15. I have heard the toyo's are tough, and have better sidewalls. Anyone confirm this? The tires are the same price (around 210 a peice) Thanks in advance for any advice!

Not a fan of the BFG's myself. The Toyo's I hear lots of good things about. If you are going to go with Toyo, save your money and buy the Pro Comp Xtreme M/T they are 4 for 3 till the end of Sept. I run the 33's on mine and love them.

I've had both on my diesel. KM2's last longer... harder compound, but they suck in the rain. Also once they wear down they have a really rough ride. Overall the toyo's were a better tire.
I'm getting down to the end of the KN2's right now... had to groove them so I can actually get traction in the rain.

I also have the Toyo's and have nothing bad at all to say. They've always pulled me through whatever mud I think they should and knowing that I've got 10ply sidewalls is nice in the rocky sections.

I went with the KM2's, but haven;t had them for long enough to tell you any horror stories. But i do know that i got them for pretty damn cheap cause they sell them at costco. saved like 400 or 500 $$$. check out costco's pricing

Will costco sell you just tires?

I thought since they wouldnt install tires any bigger than stock, they wouldnt sell you them either...?

The guy I talked to in the Langley location had no problem once I assured him that my truck had been modified to fit them. I priced out some 33/12.5-15's and they came out to about 920 or so.
