I dont know if those will fit. the 265/70/17 should fit though.

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

Would the tire be too wide?

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

I dont personally know if they would be too wide. i am just going by what other people are using with similar setups.

Specification ; Sidewall : Diameter " Circumference - Revs/Mile
245/65-17 ; 6.3in : 29.5in " 92.8in - 683
255/75-17 ; 7.5in : 32.1in " 100.7in - 629
265/70-17 ; 7.3in : 31.6in " 99.3in - 638
265/75-17 ; 7.8in : 32.6in " 102.6in - 618

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

So, either the 255/75/17s, 265/70/17 or the 265/75/17.

So with the OME lift, the 265/75 tires will be too large, so out of the other two, which would be the best bet?

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

But is the actual diameter of the wheel smaller? I dont see how? I dont want it to look like the tires are too small for the Jeep if you know what I mean

They do. Well I've got the spacers but they fit with them, Idk about without them. The only rub I get is full lock reverse, outside of that you're good.

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

Are the KM1's (255/75/17) bad, they have them in the size, and price I want. Is the tread bad?

I am also considering the KM2's in 255/80/17s if they will fit too.

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

They are not bad, they are the old style tread and that design is about 20 years old. The KM2s are much quieter and are an overall better tire. I would not say dont get KM1s but i would deff choose KM2s over 1s.

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

So, right before I was about to buy these, I was told about the Goodyear Wrangler Authority sold at walmart. It is an a/t tire. Check out some pictures on the internet and tell me if you think it might be better fitting and still look good. Also, would a 245/75/17 be to small to go?

Re: Destination A/T or BFG M/t?

Haven't read the whole thread, but I've always gone with BFG Muds, I just love the look, and if you look after them with alignment and pressures, they'll do the miles.
Of course they aren't as ssmooth on road as all Terrains though. But off road, they Hook Up!
love 'em!
