Procomps have some nice sizes and styles, but they are made by Cooper, who has had some big recalls, including at least one Procomp model. They also own Mickey Thompson and Dic k Cepek tires, and a slew of others. As far as treadware they can choose that for a particular model or brand, but what I worry about is there history of tread separation. And the recent Chinese tire recall was from a company that Cooper contracts light truck tire production from, although I don't believe any Cooper, PC, MT, or DC tires were involved in this years recall.Yellomantis said:Looking for a 35/12.50R17. The choices are between:
BFG mud terrain t/a KM2
Procomp x terrain
Procomp extreme all terrain
I don't know if I want another directional tire....
I will be buying them at 4wheel parts so I can get the no hastle no questions asked road hazard warranty.:rockon
I am leaning towards the BFG's because of their reputation for being lighter in weight compared to other tires. But I could save $300 by getting the procomps. I have heard procomps have problems with run out and balancing too.
Any ideas guys? Any other suggestions?
BFG, owned by Michelin, are great tires. The KM has weak side walls compare to the KM2. KM2s are about the same price and a heavier, but not the best prerunner tire, or street for that matter. It is based on their Krawler.
Many of the Toyo AT tires are passenger rated, but their MT is about the toughest dirt/desert tire out there from everything I've read. But get them siped for hard pack snow and ice. Btw, Toyo owns Nitto tire.
Toyos too much? Check out these Baja T/A BFGs for only $514.99 in a 35x12.5x17 ... that's each! Lol. Plain looking tires but they seem to be great tires. So now the Toyo MT don't seem so expensive?
In summary, if you use the Titan as a daily driver, get the Toyo MT unless you really need the KM2 for slow speed trails with major serious sharps on the side wall. I might be wrong but even the KM looks to be better for desert, dune, and on road, than the KM2.BFGoodrich Tires presents its professional-grade off road tire: The BFGoodrich Baja T/A. With aggressive, off road traction that is race-proven with multiple Baja 1000 wins, these BFGoodrich tires do nothing short of dominating the competition as the choice of racing professionals. Constructed with the patented TriGard carcass, the BFGoodrich Baja Tires maintain exceptional strength and structural integrity. Two steel belts further reinforce the tread area for puncture resistance and confident high-speed handling, culminating in the perfect combination of control and durability.
Btw, lot's of places have road hazard warranties, I think it is included in America's Tire (Discount Tire's), lifetime rotation and balance and mount price.
