Pretty decent deal - 255/85 Km2

http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...-KM-2-For-Sale


I'd buy them, but I already have 7, and I think Josh S. has 8....

How do these tires run? Are they smooth on highway? Do they wear down fast? How loud are they? Will they fit on a ST with a 2 inch lift?

Those prob have 20-30k left on them. They are great tires, smooth for MT's, wear well and not too loud.

No idea on an ST...

IMO they are the best all around tire out there. I like the look, the wear and performance on and off road. I am on my 3rd set.

Like others said, they're pretty much the best out there. Will do 90 on the highway, and get you through some super muddy situations. If I didn't already have 3 spares I'd snag these. I would take one if someone else wants 1-3?

Love mine so far... running same size as listed here.

Very surprisingly quiet for what they are. I balanced mine with high-grade airsoft pellets, which has worked incredibly well. Smooth highway ride.

I fit 255/85 Km2s on a 90 with original springs from 1984 without any lift. They rubbed when fully loaded with squadron snack bar resupply of beverages if you went over speed bumps. 2" lift you should have zero problem.

I've got these. Had a 1.5" lift with no issues. I'm going to get a set of 35s in these.

Dammit...I need 1, and Galpin does too. This would have been a good deal, and it was local.

255/85 are a tad shorter than I am looking for. Love this tread pattern though.

Unfortunately there's really no "step up" from 255/85s. After 255/85 it's pretty much 315/75s, which aren't close in terms of size and drivability.
