I just talked to tire rack and they told me they have one set of KM2's right now and after that they are discontinued, has anyone heard any news that a new BFG mud terain will be coming out?

What size?

I find it hard to believe that BFG would discontinue one of it's most popular tires.

A quick google search shows various forums/threads from ~2009 with Tire Rack and Discount Tire telling people that BFG KM2 are discontinued....I call BS.

Check with BFG for the real scoop. http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire-...ires#techspecs

https://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/contact-us.page there's a web page or a 1-800 number.

Tire rack also told me I can't lift a TJ enough to fit 35s. Don't listen to what they say.

I just bought a pair last week in 32x11.5/15. I doubt that they're discontinuing them.

I doubt discontinued. I have heard that they are not making any 35x12.50R15s right now. They will begin again in March. I think people fail to realize that a tire manufacture only has so many ways to make a tire and using the same tool with a different mold is one way. 15 years ago we had less than half the sizes we do now. Tire rack just doesnt want to loose your money. FYI discount tire still has some 35x12.50r15 as of the first week in January.

I use Frank @ TireRack x375. He's gotten acquainted with not asking what vehicle and goes by more of "those are going on what?".

He's probably mixed up because the all terrain is being replaced with a newer version.

I have read they are discontinued on more than a few sites. BUT, I read in JP Mag that a new version is superceding them. I believe they are called KM3
