The KM2 is a good tire.

Yep, my son has some km2's on his yota and loves them. He just got a 05 Lexus like the land cruisers and we put some of the new bfg a/t's on it yesterday. I will let you guys know how they work out. He is taking it to Moab next month.

I have 35" AT's on my CJ for use on the road. I still have the 34" Super Swampers for off road.

Well, I may have to switch to the KMs, but getting it done before the Bash isn't going to happen.

I bought myself one of those $100 grooving irons and you can have some fun with some old tires. I got the 1/8 , 1/4 , and 3/8 tip with mine. I grooved up the thorn turds and it made a huge difference. If anyone here gets one, I recommend opting for the 220 plug. 110 works but it takes awhile to heat up but once it does, it's good to go. The 3/8 tip will suck the heat out of it really fast though.

OK, I have to rant about something. Tire shop is going good and all but I want to complain about TPMS systems. Not so much the systems as much as people. Car manufacturers need to just stick with the dummy lights and do away with the read outs on all four corners. It's cold outside today and we have the doors down and the phone rings and there is a lady out front too lazy to walk in but wants me to come out and put 2lbs of air in one tire. I put air in and she says not yet and a little more and not yet. I know it's over so I wait she says oh it's 43 so I say OK I will let some out and she says no let's put them all at 43 grr . I think I'm going to put a quarter machine out front. I do go out of my way to help the elderly but there are a lot of lazy people out there.

Little annoying indeed. She should have made up her mind the first place and considerate to you trying to help her.

A year ago I put a TPMS on the motor home and trailer tires. Before leaving in January I set all tires to +/- 1 PSI. Within a few miles they all had changed, some by 5 PSI. As we went into warmer weather some got to their upper limit and set off the warning, which I ignored. Then as we came back home some were below the lower limit in the morning and set off the warning until they had rolled a few miles.
