I notice you have the same size / profile AT2's fitted to your WK

Can I presume they went on without having to modify anything?

ps did they affect MPG?

Re: Will 265/65 R17 tyres fit a WK

Can confirm that 255/65 R17 General Grabbers fit perfectly with no mods

On the short journey I have done, noticed a better ride and no more noise (up to 60mph) than the Goodyear Wrangler HP AW's they replaced

Better bump absorbsion is a bonus, possibly due to the sidewall being slightly deeper

Good Luck dude, and enjoy. 8" of snow should be no match for those tires now. Here in NH, 3 to 5" is suspected today and 8 to 12 for friday and maybe some more for sunday. All on my stock semi balding GY Fortera HLs. Yay! lol

In the South East of the UK, its just wet and cold and miserable

Plenty of snow in the North, but I am staying in front of the TV

I got the budget 2.25" spacer kit too, running the same size BFG ATs and I got my kit from Rocky-Road.com. I took mine to my uncles shop and got everything ordered through them and installed for 2k. That was the lift, 4 tires, the spacers, and the shocks. Now that I got this though I want the 4" superlift kit though . Need to bump up to the hemi for that though

Gotcha. I don't know then, I still get a little bit of rub at full lock. Going to fix that soon though.

Nav18tor - where did you get the tyres from, and do they come with white lettering on the sidewalls?

cheers
