    Has anyone seen or have any 1st or 2nd experience on Kanati Mud Hog tires?
    39X12.50R17LT 10PR 21/32 38.8 12.5 on 10 8.5-11 TBA 65 128 Q 3970

    The 12.5" tire seems to be the next step from 37s on a 80 series & want taller than a 37" but don't want the problems of 40s
    Also heard roomer that KM3 will have this size???

    Any thoughts?

    I seem to remember that the KM3 is still E rated in the larger sizes? Would assume the new size is same.

    The Kaanati sounds interesting, but unproven. The thing that sticks out to me is the 10-ply rating, equivalent to the E rating. Are all E ratings the same in terms of ride? I really don't mind the E-rated KM2s I have because there's plenty of capacity left by the time I get down to 40PSI, where the ride is pretty plush with the truck at ~6,000 lbs.

    I found pretty limited reviews on the kanatis most were pretty positive for SUV's and 1/2 ton trucks but not real good for 3/4 and 1 ton diesel trucks. I had been looking at 37's and narrowed it down to the Yokohama G003 or Falken MT's when I ran across the kanati in a 39 and started researching it and found this thread so I was hoping to get some feedback here.
