Hi Old Grizzly,
Hope you are still glad with the tire choice! Any notable updates after having them on the road for a few weeks? I have a set "in the cart" ready to order, just doing my last bit of due diligence.

Thanks again for sharing your experience,
Craig

BobbyCraig,

I love them. very much better handling, moosh while turning is minimized, noise is a bit less and pitched lower? Make sure to check 'em out just before they mount them, they are so wide, impressive.

You will love them.

Thanks for posting the pics Old Grisly. Those KO2's sure look good on your Jeep. What PSI are you running? I noticed they have a max inflation of 65 PSI.

Im running about 38 psi right now, but I think I'm going to take them up to 42 psi to get a bit stiffer. Nice thing is that tire has such a wide range to choose the best ride. I am kind of amazed at how much these stiff sidewalls are affecting the handling, but still have more "de-mooshing" to go.

Based on this thread, I'm also going to replace my ~50k mile forteras with BFG ko2 a/t in this size, for my 2013 Overland w/ 20" rims. I'm nervous! I called BFG today and the nice sales rep (Shaniqua, I'm not kidding) said her computer only matched me for Michelin Premier LTXs. Can I get the Ko2s anyway and trust you guys? Help!

Lucky you, you show-off, you got 50K from the Forteras. Me, I only got 25K from my POS Farteras.

I have 275/55-20 Wrangler Duratracs on mine. They are about a 32" tire. I have QL. Check the Goodyear page for those dimensions and compare with the KO2 specs just to make sure, but the KO2s will probably fit. ISTR there are others here with QL and with KO2 rubber.

The only rubbing is at Park Entry/Exit height, at full lock. Almost never happens, and then usually in a parking lot at 2-3 MPH.

I love mine and if an oversize A/T tread tire is what you're after then you will love yours too. Find my thread, I posted many pics at all QL ride heights.

Go for it!

Oops I lied, I don't have a thread. Here are my pics from Metz1374's thread for Duratrac Wrangler 275/55-20:

Being installed (that was a great day): Duratrac wrangler 275/55/20

Impressions after 50 miles, just before hitting my local trails: Duratrac wrangler 275/55/20

My pics at different QL heights: Duratrac wrangler 275/55/20

BFG AT TA K02 275/55/r20 fit perfectly at all heights, not to worry, and they are amazing tires, I run them at 42 psi, really helps the handling on corners.

good luck

I have an unused thin fortera spare in the trunk well. Do I leave it there? Replace it with a fullsize BFG that doesn't let me close the floor panel? Or did you find some other solution to your spare?
Thanks for getting back to me guys! Love this board.

I kept the fortera in the spare well, If I ever have to use it, won't be on there for long.
