Small IMHO! Too much room between tire and wheel arch.

255 or 285 look better.

Anyone ever hear of these tires? I like the tread pattern and they have a look similar to xzl's in my opinion which is what I'm looking for. Love the xzl's but just too narrow for my taste.

Looks like a direct copy of the Maxxis Buckshot.

Yea they look similar. I'm pulling the trigger on tires in the next day or so and and am honestly sick of f**king looking. Maybe I'll just keep my XZL's. F**k it!!

If I go on the cheap side I'll end up with something like the one I posted above. If I adjust the wallet to open a bit more then I was thinking about the Mickey Thompson MTZ.

Anyone have any experience with those?

I will never run a tire other than KM2s, they have over-delivered in every situation I've every had them in off road and on. I even like them on-road in the winter. 255s are under $200 per tire (when available).

Same, except that they have terrified me this winter with how poor they act on some surfaces. I love these tires

Yea I've already ruled out the firestones.

Wish they still made the KM1. My decision would have already been made.

I am astonished at just how much the aesthetics of a tire matter to some folks. I guess the cosmetics of a tire is a thing.

Never ever, ever, ever use a hard compound mud tire in snow. I almost wrote off my D90 the day picked it up from the ransportation company after buying it, in the winter, by sliding through a red light. I spent $2000 the next day putting on studded Nokian snow tires. Thinks it is a mountain goat now.
