Crazy request for side by side tire size picture

Can I get a picture of unmounted tires next to each other so we can get a concept of size?
I would like to see picture of a unmounted BFG KO2 next a 285 70 17 next to a 34 10.5 17.
I would also like to see a KO2 34 10.5 17 next to a Nitto Ridge grappler 285 75 17 for a size comparison.

That would be most cool.

Anyone?

No guarantee's, but I'll put in a picture request with our distribution center. It may be a few days, though, as we are in our busy season.

not what you asked for but a 34x10.5-17 and a toyo 35x12.5-17
and a 285/75-17 and a 35/12.5-17 9both toyo at2.



the 34 compared to the 35. I now the nitto and the toyo are similar in size so the nitto 285 would be quite a bit bigger.


the middle tire is the 35 the one on the right the 285

Welcome to the forum!

When it comes to re-gearing there is a lot to take into account. Such as what terrain and driving conditions you deal with on a regular basis. If you drive mostly in flat country then regearing might not be as beneficial as it would be if you lived somewhere where you encounter hills constantly. Also the more details you can give the better. Gearing for a 2007-2011 JKU running the 3.8L engine will be completely different than gearing for a 2012-2017 JKU running the 3.6L pentastar engine. Same if you are running an auto vs. an manual transmission. There is also a chart somewhere on the forum that graphs out the gears by color to show you what gears you can run to get "acceptable performance" "appropriate" "optimum" performance.

For the JKU 2012-2017 3.73 gearing is probably do able. 4.10's which the rubicon's come standard with is most likely what will get you where you need to be. 4.56's will give you the power and offroad capability that would bring you back to stock specs.

However I would do some more research and your best shot at find the info you need is to post in a regear thread. There are a lot of experienced jeep owners here that have already been through all the trouble some I'm sure they will be glad to chime in.

Go thread to start with:

35" Tires and Gearing

Hope this helps some!
