So my shop in NOVA quoted be nearly $1500 for four BFG KM2s. I checked out Discount Tire Direct and got them purchased for $1135 out the door, including stems. Definitely not a bad way to go for tires!

Now the tires are shipped, light racing UCAs shipped and rear coils shipped. I'm just waiting for the rest of the OW 2.5 kit to be completed and sent out...and the Fuel Octane wheels.

Thank you for the tire suggestions. So far I'm very happy with the results.

Thanks buddy, it's only been 24 hours but so far I'm enjoying them. I can't wait to try them out in some actual mud.

I went with the 285/70R/17 so I expect they may slide bit in the rain but overall they should be great. I got them for about $245/tire which wasn't too bad.

they should be fine until they wear down past the "sipes" (not reall sipes but they act as a water channel) i had zero problems with mine in any weather or terrain, granted yours are a little bit wider. you should still have zero problems if your vehicle is aligned properly and you are running correct tire pressure.

Good to know, the alignment seems like it should be in good shape. I also added light racing UCAs to keep the alignment spot on with my new set-up.
