5 x 2012 JKU Rubicon Tires/Wheels w/o TPMS

For Sale are 5 stock JKU Rubicon BFG KMs (LT255/75R17 Mud-Terrain T/A) tires and 5 17-Inch aluminum "Painted Satin Carbon" wheels without TPMS. 4 of these tires/wheels have 342 miles on them, the 5th, zero miles. They are in absolutely pristine condition.

Looking for $1,000 for the lot. Can throw in 23 standard Jeep JK lugs if needed...

How do these run on the street. I drive 100 highway miles per day.

I replaced them with Duratracs, which are ATs, and to be honest, the BFGs drove nicer (and were more quiet, which makes no sense given that the BFGs are mudders). But that being said, the Duratracs are a good inch and a half wider, 5lbs heavier per tire and are load D, versus the BFG load C tires, which are much better suited to the JK.

I did not put much mileage on the BFGs as you can tell, but I really was surprised how nice-driving they were.

Maybe other BFG drivers can chime in???

What was the mpg you were getting with this tire and rim set up? The tires do look great but my obvious concern is road noise and overall commuting on the pavement experience.

I look forward to hearing more. And btw, you are close enough for a pick up.

It honestly would be very hard for me to gauge your hit on MPG, as there is sure to be a little given the tread and weight differences compared to what you are running now.

A lot of the JK Rubi tire/wheel sets that i have seen on this and two other forums have been picked up by JK Sport/Sahara owners...I would suggest you post that exact question on the main board or the wheel/tire board. There are bound to be a bunch of people on WF that have stepped up to this tire/wheel combination probably from similar tires that you are running now and can give you more accurate feedback.

I just do not want to steer you wrong...so it's best to get some real world feedback.
