Looks cool. How about some more angles. Are you running spacers? They look pushed out further than stock, but it might be an illusion with the flat fenders.

Nice to see some folks supporting skinny tires. There are a lot of good tires out there, but BFG is part of a smallish group catering to kate moss crowd.

You can get a 255 or 10.5 inch width, 33 inch tire (which is stock or close to it for my Rubi) on a 15, 16 or 17 inch wheel from BFG should you desire...and you can have an All Terrain or Mud Terrain.

I suppose it must be a small market, since not a lot of other folks are even working for a spot in it. Good to see some choices, though.

I like the skinny look...

My only concern would be dry and wet "on road" traction.

You have said that twice alredy: kate moss

To be honest, I merely borrowed it from someone else.

I don't want to be any kind of deep in Adele...I'm one of those assholes that doesn't generally go for gals bigger than he is, what can I say?

I'm just fine with properly sized women...those that understand that a life goal is not weighing in the four digit area, who don't think it's OK to weigh 300 lbs because they had a kid over a decade ago, etc. Did I mention I can be an ass?

Reference the conversation between Kbbwold and ESP earlier in this thread.

My usage was an expansion on the original analogy.

Never have been a big fan of "rolling the fatties". When I take the JK to play, I swap on some Gateway Buckshots, 245/85/R15's. My CJ rolls on 34/9.50/15 Super Swampers. Love that traction off road.

Cool, 235s look like the size I will get for my studded snow tires! I am putting Rubi take offs on for my summers but with snow/studded tires wide tires suck! Need pounds per square inch to dig the studs into the ice.

Looks really clean OP!!

"Pizza cutters" can be wider if they're taller. At 12.5" wide, my 35s still seem pretty skinny compared to plenty out there, but I'm also running a 8" wheel while a lot opt for a 9". I wish I could have found something in the 35x10.50 range but had no luck, since BFG quit making that size when they started with the KM-2s.

My wife's TJ will be getting 33x10.50-15 KM-2s if she still wants to keep it after the baby is born.

Awesome look you've got here. Are these stock 17 or 18" rims painted black?

Could I get these tires on a 2012 sahara w/o a lift? Looking for 33" x 10% wide in this model tire.. Thanks!

Hey JB71 I also like the look of old school jeeps with the pizza cutters. As already been said the skinnys work well in many off rod situations. I am not a rock crawler but I think that is where the fatties are needed to avoid slipping of the rock.

Question: I the on road ride of the stock 16 inc steelies is really plush for a jeep because of the soft side wall. How do the discoveries feel compared to the stock rubber? I put a set of sport 17 inchers on my sport and the ride was noticably harder....went back to the steel 16 inchers! Not sure what to do at this point. I do mild off roading and a lot of highway.

I honestly felt no difference between the two.....and 235/85/16's are one ton tires with heavy duty side walls to boot. I have absolutely no complaints about the ride...of course my last Jeep was a YJ.

"Pizza cutters"? In the military, we called them "grave-digger" tires.

Always thought pizza cutter tires were skinny fronts in a drag car.

Wow, nobody wants to put my skinny "non-mfg sized" tires on my Jeep. I had to tell the shop to just install them on my rims and i'll pinky-swear that they won't go on my car.

Toyo Open Country MT 255/85R16. Great all around tire. They get me up the 35 deg. driveway in snow. Put it in 4low and low gear and jeep drives right up. They stop fast on snowy paved roads,handle well. Heavy, solid tire for off-road. They are noisier than stock 32s; they sound excellent and handle well with the lifted jeep. Dry/wet paved road ride and handling is excellent. I will definitely buy another set when the first set has worn out.

I don't know if I'd say I'm a "pizza cutter" fanboy, but I wanted the everything "under the fender" look. The "lettin' it all hang out" look of having half your tire outside the flare, rooster tailing 50 feet of water on a wet road, never did it for me.
