The KM2 is a great tire, quiet on the road for a MT and great off Road capabilities.

I don't know much about the MTZ but I'm sure its comparable but still steps behind the innovations of the KM2

I've got KM2's and I love em!

wait, did I just repeat what Nathan said? hah....

If you're not used to mud tires then you probably won't think they're quiet, but they are 'quieter'

As before, don't know anything about MTZ's. The only other tire I considered was Toyo M/T's My gas mileage went down for sure, but I also went up to 285's. I just did a tuneup and whatnot though, so gas mileage has already made a rebound. I WAS getting 16, this is the first full tank since the new plugs and filters, so we'll see, I'm expecting back up to 18 if it continues as it is now.

I have the KM2's, they are great tires. They will probably last as long as the AT's.
Great performance all around, even on wet roads.

The MTZ probably won't last half as long as the KM's.

I think my next set of tires, will more than likely be the ATZ. (I just like the look)
But that probably won't be for several years. (since these tires don't seem to wear at all)

I just have to echo that one. Under 50 mph, I have yet to actually 'feel' a puddle when I drive through it. I'm actually quite impressed in that sense.

I've been running MTZ on the tacoma with 60,000k's on them in all kinds of conditions and highly recommend them. The tires have 1/4 tread left and I drive them hard on the mountain passes. Off road they conform really well aired down. Side biters work really well. The sipping really helps in the snow and ice on and off the road. Not bad in mud but better on the rocks and trails. I.ve driven them through a trail where it was freshly logged with really sharp branches and sharp trunks with no penetration in the sidewall. The MT/R's didn't fair as well. Hopefully BFG has improved their side-walls on the KM's cause that was their weekness. Little hum on the highway which is expected. They are as good as my Goodyear MT/R's on my 81 but with better road performance. Lots of guys run them down undah in the bush cause they're a tough tire.

check out our winter wheeling vid of some really easy trails at http://www.ct4wda.com

My white Tacoma is running the MTZ
