Hi all, I know this one has been asked many times, just seeing if there is any info on new bfg km 2 tires. I have a 2006 manual ifs cruiser. I have geolander a/ts 276/65/17 on at the monent. They came on car almost new. I have been on every surface except mud. I am worred about traction and after bfg km2 285/70/17. I have always had bfg mud. But 32s on a patrol. I have read I will loose fuel economy and power. Is this worth the extra 20 mm under diff? Are geo bad in mud for a a/t? Had thought if a 3inxh exhaust to make up power loss or just run a/t out. Or a second set . Prefer not to have second set. Any thoughts thank you.

Mick78, g'day,
We don't have 17" wheels, but do have 285/75/16 fitted to our Landcruiser which are slightly bigger than normal, and quite frankly haven't noticed any difference.
Have extractors with 3" exhaust fitted and only disappointment is, should have had it fitted when the vehicle was purchased, you can really notice the difference.
Go caravaning, life is so much shorter than death.

i just bought a set of Hercules Trail Diggers over the KM2s. they are made in the US and look to be the goods, and way cheaper than the KM2. specs are the same for the 2. mine are 285/75/16s

Thanks for the reply guys. I think l might keep the geolander for around town and maybe buy the bfg for bush. I know it is two sets of wheels to change. Bat this way I guess I have a set of wheels to offer the best on traction. Also can monitor wheel bearing and brake life whilst swapping wheels. Thank you
