Just made my appointment to get new shoes for my Frontier. The stock crappy BFG's have just under 25k on them (I bought it with 24k) and they are almost completely warn down.

My son has BFG KO's on his 89 K5 Blazer and they are great tires. I have heard nothing but good things about the KO2's on CF.

265/75-16 the stock tire for my Pro-4x
They are getting really good reviews. You might also check out the Falken At3w.

Do you plan to lift your truck at all? A 2in lift and 285s really transforms the trucks appearance. I was in the same situation as you, my stock tires were worn out, but i'm glad i did the lift at the same time as the tires--id be unhappy with 265s.

I would love to lift my truck but at this time I will continue with the stock height. Once my son graduates from high school (senior this coming year) and is out on his own maybe I will have the funds to lift it. But for now the tires are all I can afford.

Here are a few pictures. I really like the look. I have only driven 10 miles but they aren't any loader than the old tires.

I just drove the Fronty about 20 miles and I really like the ride. They feel softer than the old Rugged trails. I had an Xtarra 4 years ago that I drove for 2 years before trading that on an Armada and I hated those tires on the Xtarra also. The KO2's seem to be just as quit as the RT's.

So far I am a happy camper. I can't wait to see how these do off road.

Yes and when you are off-road you will not have to worry about a stick or rock poking thru your sidewall like on the old BFG Rugged-Fails

One thing you may notice is a hit on your gas mileage and a little bit slower speed/response from a dead stop, from the extra weight of the tires
265/75-16 BFG Rugged Trail 40 lbs
265/75-16 BFG KO2 53 lbs

K02's are 13 lbs heavier.

But if we/you are worried about MPG, then we would be driving one of those little spec econo-box cars.

It's funny you should mention gas mileage. On the way back to work after getting the new tires my mph went up to 16.1 from 16. ::grin::
