    KM3's 37x12.5x17

    Mid Perch
    Fenders/liners trimmed
    Pinch weld trimmed

    So far no rubbing in the city. Will report back when I get a chance to take it on the trail.

    Road noise is minimal. It is more noticeable from 0-40 MPH with the widows rolled down.

    It is a little bit more bumpy while driving on the freeway.

    Can anybody update us on their opinions of this tire? I’m looking to get these or the Toyo MT’s.

    After driving a few thousand miles on KM3 37s.

    Snow on dirt = Excellent
    Snow on tarmac= Good
    Ice on dirt = Good
    Ice on tarmac= Poor (KO2s might be better on ice)
    Sand = Excellent (Great for Baja)
    Rock Crawling = Excellent (The tire feels soft and sticky, similar to the R-compound found on racing cars tires)
    Mud = Excellent
    Rain = Good

    Tarmac = KO2s might be better
    Everything else = KM3s is better

    In case you are wondering if you can fit a spare 37s KM3 under the bed? Yes it fits!

    Just installed 37x12.50R17's on mine today. They are on stock offset wheels with mid perch. No rubbing at all. Seriously..for 100% street use on my setup u will not rub. But I will be cutting the shit out of if here soon so I can stuff them. Deaver +3 in rear with RPG shackles. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
