Nitto ridge grapplers are great tires I have 3,000 miles on mine and they have worked flawlessly great on road and awesome on Texas rocks my brother has BFG km3’s on his 2nd gen raptor his is mostly driven on road the km3’s are a bit louder than the ridge grapplers which sound the same to me as the stock ko2’s I have driven his JKUR which has KM2’s and I was not impressed they are loud (they have only 12,000 miles on them) off-road the ko2’s are just as good except in gooey mud last but not least sidewall strength Nitto wins hand down IMHO.

Sidewall strength is where the BFG's shine! Both the KO2's and Km3's.

Km3’s seem to be reasonably strong but KO2’s having strong sidewall’s :CWL: have you ever driven on sharp rock’s? might as well use all season tires.

Yes I have, I had 35" KO2's on my 2013 Rubicon and off roaded it in Arizona, Utah and Wyoming they did fine, no sidewall failures. Their weakness is a lot of mud, not their sidewall strength and some have difficulty in balancing them.

Is this YOUR vehicle or HERS? Our Jeep is my wife's daily. We had KM2's and the first 500 miles were awesome. After that.......it was so bad that she told me to do the wheel / tire upgrade right away so she could get her senses back. Will the KM3's be as loud as a KM2? Not likely as loud, but it is a mud terrain tire and it's not gonna be quiet.

If this is for her vehicle, she really needs to take a ride in a vehicle with both tire setups.
love my ko2s no noticeable noise or driving change at over 5k and one tire rotation, long trips, short trips, rain snow or mud, quite capable tires

This is her Jeep, I will seldom drive it. She decided on the KM3 and has them being installed tomorrow on Icon Wheels.
Will update with photos soon.
