BFG Mud Terrain T/A KM Availability

I realize the KM1 is NLA but with all the hoarders out there I'm wondering if anyone has a set of 4 in size 265 75's or know of anyone else who may have some.

I ran these on my NAS 110. Great tire and look almost identical to the KM1

You're right now that I look at them. They do look pretty damn similar.
What do you know about how they handle in wet conditions?

The original KMs were scary on wet, hard surfaces, IME.

Well that sucks. Probably safe to assume that the Firestone Destination M/Ts are going to perform the same way then I'd imagine.

Depends on the rubber hardness, I would suspect. The KMs were very hard. Made them wear forever, but not the best in the wet.

I drove on them through all weather in Maine.. I honestly can't recall them being scary in the rain but it was years ago so you might want to read the reviews.

I have a set on my 110 and they wear like iron, but just like the KMs they are a bit spooky on wet hard surfaces and/or expansion joints.

Siping them cures the issue.

Those tires look pretty frigging sweet actually. I've never seen those. Do you have any pics of them on your rig?
