It is not my normal self to be opinionated concerning another jeep I either like it or I don't in your jeeps case the first thing I would do it remove all those Hanson stickers or whatever they are from your bumpers and rock sliders I hate it when companies think I want to advertize their product like that after Ive purchased it. Other than that ........

I went with your first set of rims also, around the same time as you did as I recall. I do not have the funds to swap wheels when the mood strikes me and I still am happy with them. That being said buying wheels for a jeep is worse than picking a new mattress very rarely do I see a set that catches my eye that I might consider changing to.
When I first saw these they had an extra machined face around the rim and a black center cap that I preferred but couldn't get. I was disappointed to open the box and have them not match the picture in the add. But kept them anyway.

Lift was put on 2 weeks after this.

Thanks for the thoughts. Your jeep looks great. It looks pretty good covered in mud too. Here's what mine looked like yesterday after covering about 50 miles of muddy dirt roads.... It looked like this and I was avoiding as much of the mud as possible.

What is your reason behind using those tires?

I presume you are asking the OP but in my case I've heard good things about KM2's and wanted tall and skinny KM2 are the only tire I could find in 255/80-17

Yes it was directed at the OP. I love the tread pattern on the KM2 and if I didn't get such a good deal on my current tires, I would have probably bought those. I have a buddy with the KM1's and they hook up great so I would love to see the KM2's in action.

2 out of 4 isn't bad at all. We've got three tags to try to fill and its the last hunt of the season. Its not going to be an easy one but man am I excited.

No tire is great for everyone, its important to select a tire that fits your needs the best. I'll give you my semi short answer.

Although they may look tame, the Wild Peak is tough as nails off road, they are affordable, they last, and they are smooth and quiet on the road. (If you ever doubt their strength, go to a tire shop that stocks them and feel how thick their sidewalls are compared to any other AT or MT on the market.)

I had experienced this tire first hand at the 2010 JK Experience event. I wheeled on this tire through Wyoming, Montana and Idaho for a week straight (about 1000 hard off-road miles). We hit sand, dirt, gravel, loose rock, slick rock, mud, snow and ice. This tire (and our vehicle) took a serious beating and practically asked for more. At the end of our week we had zero flat tires, the tread showed only some minor wear and the only time we got stuck was when we buried the vehicle so deep in a ditch that we could only see about 3" of the top of the passenger front tire. (We were running 37s.)

I demand a lot from my tires. My LJ is my daily driver and I also push it hard on the trails. I wanted a tire that would give me on road comfort, be durable off road and I wanted something that would last as well. After seeing what the Wild Peak was capable of first hand, I have 100% confidence that I will be able to get through ANYTHING I am willing to put my jeep through.

Falken Tire has plans to build an MT in the future but as far as I can tell it won't be for about 2 years.

Intersting. How would you compare these to the BFG AT? I used to run those and had problems in most wet/muddy/snowy conditions off road. They would just never grip good and I had to really push my Jeeps limits just to get it through easier trails.

The BFG AT KO is a solid tire. I have always liked BFG tires. The AT KO is smooth and comfortable on the street and they last. Offroad they are great for packed terrain and hard rock. When it comes to the thicker stuff they do tend to hold on to it a little longer and if there is a lot of water it takes them a little longer to clear it out and find solid ground.

In looking at your license plate I assume you find your fair share of mud. If its common for you, a true MT or a really aggressive AT may be a better option for you. You might also want to consider siping them for some added biting edges in the winter. The KM2, Goodyear MTR with Kevlar or the Goodyear Duratrac may be good options to consider.

Yep I had it narrowed down to the KM2, or some sort of Interco tire. I ended up with the TSL radial because I got a great deal on them, and couldn't be happier. Yes, they do make a considerable amount of road noise. But that's why I have upgraded speakers and 2 10" subs. The amount of grip that I get with the TSL is outstanding. Of course there is some areas that they lack some traction in, but if you keep that skinny petal on the floor they are unstoppable. I have gotten up a very steep hill in around 2ft of snow and had zero problems. I must say I was sh*tting myself thinking about going up it, but how else would I have gotten back home. All in all there really is no "one size fits all" tire, so you have to choose what is best for your conditions, and I can't see that falken tire doing too great where I wheel.

Sounds like you've found a tire that works well for you. If and when Falken builds an MT you might want to check them out. If could be a few years so you've got some time to wear your TSL's down.

Yea when I read that in one of your earlier posts about Falken making an MT, I thought it would be a great idea. It seems that there AT has outstanding reviews for what it is and I would love to see a more aggressive version.

It would be a good time for an update. I recently installed some Piaa fogs and driving lights and I have taken some time to test out the scratch guards on the Level 8 wheels. I'll snap some pics of the Piaa's when I get a chance. They have been a great addition for looks and function.

Here's a video I put together with the Level 8 scratch guards. The Jeep in this video isn't the LJ though.

Its been a while since I've posted anything new here but I relocated my license plate and added a Jerry can rack to my LJ last weekend. Here's a shot.
