37's with the 2012 Auto and 4;10s

Thinking about getting 37's, (BFG KM2') narrow'est possible, 12.50 would be fine.
First: Anyone running this combo.

Second: Where is the best place to get this size BFG KM2

Third: Open to other suggestions.

I know new gears would be better, but right now, I might be able to pull of the tire and wheel purchase but can't gear at the moment, full intentions to re-gear soon.

Thanks Augie

My buddy just put 37x12.50x17 Mickey Thompson MTZ's on his 2012 JKU. They look mean, perform well, and are quiet on the road. They might be a good alternative. I don't know much about the KM2's, so no real answers to your questions.

your gears will be fine. I have a 2013 auto on 37x13.50x17 Nitto mud grapplers and I have 3.73's. its driveable but at 70+ it only utilizes 3rd and 4th. 0-70 drives fine.

my buddies 11 6spd on 37's with 3.21's on the other hand.....

I checked out their prices, thanks for the info but with the price of fuel I can have tirerack ship for 150 for 5, that is fuel to SoCal but not back. But that's the kind of info I was looking for,

Sounds like I can get by with the 4.1's no problem. Thanks. Still haven't pulled the trigger but I am home sick today and it looks like I will have time to figure it out.

The one thing I considered looking at 37's vs 35's... 37's are double the price

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."

I have the 315/75/17 DuraTracs on stock wheels. They are 34.4s
I found a set of 5- Goodyear MTR sent to the house for just under 2,000 (TireRack).

The quest continues. I think I paid about 1,800 for the 5 Dura Tracs sent to the house.
