can these wk2 run a smaller spare tire w/o damage?

Get a take off JK/JKU spare: 255/70r18. Comes out to a 32" tall tire. Correct bolt pattern and offset, simply narrower.

Fits in the spare tire well without raising the lid.

DrSpeed is correct. While the 255/70 size tire is still 32" in diameter, it is just narrow enough to fit under the cover without worry.

Good deal, thanks! Could you stow the jack in the wheel, wrapped to protect the wheel finish?

How you liking the ko2's so far?

I couldn't make it fit inside the wheel. My wife figured out it fits under the back seats, we wrapped it so it doesn't make noise.

KO2's are great- slightly noisier; they seem to "resonate" between 25 and 40mph but then quite down and/or get buried by wind noise. MPG took a hit but that was expected. Settled on 39psi cold but not sure that's where I want to stay- possibly too hard.

I will be off-road for six days starting Monday so I'll get to see how they do in the dirt!

Re: 50psi?? New LT265/60R18 BFG TA KO2

I'm going to have the 265/60R18 K02s installed next week and wanted to get an updates on recommended pressure. After reading the thread it appears 36-41 psi might be correct zone? Any other sage advice?
