Nope, not yet anyway.

I've put it through some major bumps and hilly fields without issue. Mostly at normal ride height or aero height day to day, (OR1 when off-road/in snow) and rarely ever OR2.

Handles very well on the highway, comfortable at the same speeds as stock tires. No noticeable issues so far, nearing first rotation at ~4k miles on them. Tires still look new.

Snow/Slush/Ice grip seems to be amazing so far. Need more of it to tell for sure.

Re: 275-55-20 BFG T/A KO2 on stock rims

Also thinking of getting them for wife's Eco. The Good Years are still like 90% tread but they r just terrible in the snow. I talked to a tire salesman who said the bfgs would make it ride really bad, i don't think I believe that. Did the ride quality change at all when putting the bfgs on?

The ride quality got better, in my opinion. There's more rubber between you and the road, which to me = less impact on potholes/road bumps.

I've run these tires to 105mph without issue, ride quality on the highway is the same as before. Grip is fantastic.

Tire salesman told me that 275/55-20 would not fit my Jeep, and he rolled one out next to it on stock tires, and told me "See, looks too big doesn't it?"

They also told me it would tear my bumper off, if i was wrong about it fitting.

I had read through countless people on here who said they fit without issue, and whaddya know? They were right, salesman wrong.

Re: 275-55-20 BFG T/A KO2 on stock rims

Thanks for all the replies, my wife and i just had a baby 2 weeks ago, i hope i can convince her it's a good idea to upgrade to the bfg's. We shall see, i think she is probably all for it but spending money on tires that dont necessarily need replacing is an issue.

Hey no problem. And to better sell your case to your better half... I feel much safer on these than the stock tires. They stop sooner in inclement weather, and grip harder, in almost all situations.

Last I checked 4wheelparts is running a good sale on the BFG KO2. I got mine for $186/tire a few months ago. They might not be that low any more but worth checking out for sure.

Re: 275-55-20 BFG T/A KO2 on stock rims

getting the KO2's installed tomorrow on '15 altitude and then the RRO leveling kit installed sometime next week once I can get some time off work.

there should be no issue getting the tires installed and driving for 4/5 days without the alignment and leveling kit installed right? (no rubbing or damage to tires?)

thanks in advance!
