Re: BFG All-Terrains or Rugged-Terrains

For what it's worth now... a little more noise, especially between 50-60, then the wind noise wins out. They are heavier, but only really noticeable off idle, then I can't tell. Definitely a better drive versus the Goodyear passenger tires that were on it. They don't float, aren't numb, and have better feedback. LT275/55R20

Re: BFG All-Terrains or Rugged-Terrains

I too have KO2's on the stock 18" rims. I agree with dsears00 about the noise and the ride. The first time I drove them I immediately liked them more than the Bridgestone Latitudes that game with the Jeep as the feed back is great.

I do a lot of highway driving and I haven't noticed any increase in gas mileage.

I got them for some off road adventures and to tackle the winter stuff up here in Manitoba. So far they have been great off road, eating through mud with reckless abandonment.

Pics? I don't think we have any pics of them on the 18" wheels yet.

Agreed... I personally think the 18's look better, but didn't want to buy rims too.

Yeah, love the additional sidewall on the 18's.

Yes - Didn't want to mess with the speedo since there is no adjustment for it.

Agreed all around. The stock size and aspect ratio are a perfect fit for the tread and sidewall pattern of the KO2. And having the speedometer be off even a little bit would bother me as well. Two great reasons to stay with the stock size.

If you have a chance at some point to snap more pics showing the entire vehicle, that would be appreciated.
