    I say KM2s. Quiet, but aggressive tread. Good side protection. Designed to run on low pressure off road. What's not to like? They're what I'm going with after my ProComps wear out.

    Yeah, you really can't beat the KM2's man. They're good on road and off. I had some Mud Grapplers and the things were LOUD on the road (although great off road and didn't wear down as fast as I thought they would). I'm really happy with the KM2's. They grip on rocks and cut through mud quite nicely. Here's a video a me in a small rock garden. You can see the rocks were slippery, yet the tires still gripped and I was able to go through (check out about the 24 second mark) (vid only shows a little of the garden, not the whole thing).

    Oh...and pay no attention to the right front fender flare's marker light dangling down...I ran the flare into a tree. hahahaha This was shot back in June of last year while on vacation from Iraq...was putting the Jeep through it's paces to ensure it was built tough and not just a mall crawler. It passed.

    The KM2's are an upgraded version of the KM's which is an excellent tire, you really can't go wrong with the KM2's. If you haven't already looked the KM 255-75-R17 tire's can be found for $94 ea at Tire Rack. Depending on your size and or needs.

    I polled super swamper but it is for Interco trxus, me and a couple others run them and they are great off road, havent had them long enough to judge the highway life yet.

    I've recently started hearing complaints on the km2's in the snow around here. Since you're in Co I'd make sure whatever you decide has decent traction in the snow.
    I ran the procomp x terrains on my last jeep and those sucked in the snow as well.
    Currently I'm running the trxus mt's and they've been great in the little bit of snow we just got around here. Great off road as well. Road noise is pretty quiet. They did take quite a bit of weight to balance though.... all though all interco tires will.

    Do not get the X terrains, I repeat, DO NOT get the x terrains. I've watched 4 people go through 3 sets due to sidewall failure. They pull good, but get a stump or rock just right and walla, bye bye sidewall. I'd go with a nice radial like the Truxus M/T or KM2's if I were you, or maybe the pro comp extreme mud terrain. Also, have you looked into the Cooper STT's, great looking tire and the Firestone Destination M/T is another.
    EXCUSES ARE STEPPING STONES TO FAILURE!!!!!!
