BFG's are the best all round off road tyres you can buy if you can afford them, good choice.
Coopers are the best marketed tyres on the market but the worst performers off road.

Am I the only one that felt the BFG mud acts like ice skates in the wet?

once you have had coopers you would never have them again, they fall to bits and tear lugs off at the first sign of a serious track

I've never had problems with Coopers or Mickey T's, and I have punished both offroad - never had any punctures, never torn off any lugs - only ever had minor chipping, but if your going to punish them on rocks and what not you would be silly not to expect it.

We've had BFG's once before, would never have them again. Useless offroad and even worse on road. Dont know about the KM2's, but alot of people are running them.

At the end of the day, tyres come down to personal opinion. What one bloke might have, another one wont. Its what ever you like and what you feel comfortable with.

Absolutely correct. Coopers are as hard as nails and catch and tear like finger nails too. If you drive them through mud, sand and general "dirt roads" they're OK and you'll get some OK results. However if you drive them through serious off road terrain, rocks, boulders and up mad serious stuff they're below average.

The BFG Mud Terrains will never be as good in the wet on bitumen roads because there's less rubber per sq mm contact on the road because they're MUDDIES. If you want a tyre to grip in the wet on the black stuff stick to road tyres or ATR's.
It's all about the right tyre for the conditions you drive on.
