I went through about 25 miles of pretty rocky roads and they still look like new. I think BFG really stepped it up in all aspects with the KM3. Time will tell.
Yeah - They had better look like new after 25 miles! :poke: :D
lol I have tore up a cheap spare MT tire before on just 1 trip.

Re: 37's Not Balancing

I finally got the KM3's on Friday. First impressions are great! Smooth and quiet. Height wise I can't tell a difference, but I'm pretty sure they measure .2" shorter than the STT. Width wise they are definitely narrower which I'm completely fine with since I NO LONGER HAVE ANY RUBBING! I now have an...

Re: The Power Wagon Curse

How many miles do you have on your KM3's? How do you think they are holding up tread wear wise with such a heavy truck? I have a set coming in 37s. I've been reading a bit about the KO2 and KM2 not being good tires for HD trucks because of the weight. I'm struggling to find reviews on HD trucks but ...

16PW - are you in a snow belt? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the KM3 if you are.

No I live in Phoenix AZ. I'll definitely be driving them in the snow since I go skiing often so I'll be sure to give some feedback.

I actually just had Discount order me BFG KM3's in 37x12.50r17. I've been hearing that coopers are hit or miss.

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Thanks for the input guys. I went to Discount this afternoon and had them order me up some BFG KM3's. I've been hearing that coopers are a hit or miss as far as having issues with them so I didnt feel like taking that chance again. Plus I'm only having to pay an additional $160 for the KM3's when no...

Looks good. I have the STT Pro's right now in 37's and having the same balancing issues and pulling to the right. I have been back and forth with Discount Tire trying to get the balancing correct.

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Finally got around to get the broken stud repaired as well as the front end checked out. Alignment was good. Steering wheel was a little off, but they said nothing to cause the shaking and right pull. I still have the shake and pull to the right so back to Discount I go for new tires. Now the decisi...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Mounting out of spec is kind of at the Managers discretion. Obviously discouraged by Corporate, but... If the pull remains regardless of tire position, seems difficult to blame the tires. Is there another DT in your area? BTW, where are you? FWIW, I just put a set of Grabber X3's on a couple of wee...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

So when are they replacing the stud? When I have time to. Discount doesn't do those repairs. They sent me to a shop down the street that will do it for free (obviously). I called them up about it and they told me to be prepared to leave my truck there all day.... :wtf: I haven't had a whole day to ...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Did you ever have any pull to the right? No pull to the right. I picked up my STT Pros from Discount Tire, no issues mounting or balancing. Assuming the issues came along with the new tire install, it seems like you have a bad tire or two. I'm pretty convinced it is a bad tire or 2, but Discount ke...

Re: 37's Not Balancing

Not surprised, Cooper is a budget tire and gets negative reviews for excessive weight to balance. I'd return them, it's just too much trouble to try to make questionable tires work. For reference, my 40's aren't balanced and are not even close to how your describe your 37's. Crazy! I did a ton of r...

37's Not Balancing

I bought a new set of 37x12.50 Cooper STT Pro's from Discount Tire the other month. The are on stock rims. From day 1 these tires have been shaking from about 45-70mph. I have taken it back to discount tire 4 times already which they have tried balancing them every type of way possible including roa...

Re: KM3

37x12.50 Cooper STT Pro's weigh 77lbs. That is what I just put on. That's pretty "light" for an 37 MT since pretty much all other major brands are over 80lbs. I say go with a 37. They look perfect on a power wagon. I would have been pissed if I went with 35's. MPG is not really a concern for me beca...

Re: 16PW's Build-2016 Power Wagon

Since I took my OEM flares off I have to say I am a fan. Not only do the factory flares ruin your pain but they interrupt the body lines. With that said, the rocks are going to wreck your pain. Maybe body color bed liner is the way to go? I have tons of rock chips an am considering that route mysel...
