I like those on black, was going to get a set of Fuel Krank Wheels (see pic) but didn't want to spend the money at this time.

Re: BFG All-Terrains or Rugged-Terrains

How is the ride and handling with the KO2 tires? I see they have an "E" load rating so they are very heavy duty.

My KO2's ride great - I have no complaints. I much prefer them over the stock fortera's, and I even upsized to 275/55.

I concur - KO2s are exceeding my expectations. A little stiff when cold, but they flex quite nicely after a few revolutions. Snow traction is beyond belief, and they wear like iron. 275/65/18's on a EcoDiesel

Best for now.

I can't give you an actual honest opinion, as I haven't had a lot of opportunity to drive them in ice conditions. That being said however, as is with any tire without studs-probably not very well.

Are those SRT8 reps you have the 20x9 with the +30mm offset?

Any rubbing issues with the 275s?

I was thinking about going this same route on mine but am just at the ordering stage wondering weather to rock a 265 or 275.

What wheels are those? Are they a jeep wheel or an aftermarket? Do you have the specs for the wheels width and offset? Also do you have a level kit orang thing els installed?

Re: BFG All-Terrains or Rugged-Terrains

I'm new to this forum, and I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but
I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x2. Everything stock (265/50/20).
I'd like to upgrade the tires to the new BF Goodrich KO2 all terrain in 275/55/20.
Is this possible without any rubbing issues? Thanks!

Nice look! Leveling kit or lift on your Jeep?
