I know what you mean about abbreviations!
The Jeep is apparently a JL-UL Sahara, and not a JL-UL-R. Confused

I ran a 2015 MY Wrangler 2.8 CRD as my daily driver for a couple of years & I absolutely loved it; Jeep have really looked after their heritage & nurtured the Wrangler to meet modern demands whilst still keeping the DNA of the iconic vehicle...shame JLR haven't took a similar stance with the Defender.

Otherwise, nice boots! Since 1973...S1, Air Portables, Defenders & finally 2016 90 XS HT & 90 Wolf

I know these aren't in all sizes yet, so excellent news they will be at some point next year hopefully.

Has anyone been running any yet to pass any comment on them? Still loving my KM2's but always interested dot hear about the next gen. Watts รท Volts = Amps.

I consider the km3 for my jeep. I had the km2 on the defender in 255/85/15 for two years and was fine with everything but snow. To ne honest, I read everything I could find about the new km3s and it all sounds like bfg paid advertisment. Today I found this article

http://www.northridgenation.com/taking-a-l...km3-tires/

In summary:
1. bfg claims 5% better mud traction, but the thead blocks of km3 are closer. hm...
2. 27% tougher sidewall, but the tire is 10lbs heavier. hm...

Should I go for km2? They are cheaper now and probably the same tire. Any thoughts or real experience with km3? Defender 110 SW MY2011 2.4tdci decat, no EGR

Land rover monthly did a review of the km3 in last months mag... Worth a read if you can get it..

But personally I'd go for the km2..
But I don't do alot of off roading and no rock crawling... Regards

Why would you buy the KM2 over the KM3?


I'm quite taken by the fact that they're offering a 7.50R16 option which is very unusual. Finally something to upgrade to from my Michelin Latitudes that stands a chance of not deafening me like the XZL or killing me like a G90.

km2 is available in my desired size, km3 is not (yet)
km2 is cheaper
km2 has more space between tread blocks => better mud cleaning
km2 weights less than km3

I have not decided yet. I have to choose between km2, km3 and maxxis razr mt. Defender 110 SW MY2011 2.4tdci decat, no EGR

What diduan said... Laughing
I agree, according to the review by LRO mag, the benefit was marginal - and in my eyes not worth the price increase.. Regards
