Re: Tire options on my JK wheels for my WK

I can get (5) 255/75/17's BF Goodrich All Terrain KO TA's for. $750.
I prefer the wider tires and am leaning towards the 265's. The cost is not too big a factor.
I am looking for the best value.
Any other recommendations for tires and sizes? I had also considered the Nitto Trail Grapplers, but are they any better or just comparable?
Thanks for all the help.
idk maybe its just me but i would never grind something down that helps you stop ..
if your going with a tire that large, either way your going to need a wheel spacer... i believe lt stands for light truck ? but i could be wrong... and i really like the bfg 265/70/17 as long as you are lifted ... its going to be tough to squeeze a tire that big on a stock lift
