What do people think?

Thanks!!

Hey guys. I just put a set of these on my otherwise bone stock 2007 JKU rubi a couple days ago. Absolutely love them. Much quieter to my ear than the km1s on road. Haven't gotten them off yet, but I assume they'll perform like the stockers did.

Cool, they look great! Good to hear they are a little smoother/quieter. Thought they might be. Are they 255/80's? Stock, no lift?

Yes they're the 255/80r17s. Got them here:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....um=58QR7KM2RWL

I'm looking to do a 2.5 bb or coil lift in the next few weeks...only had the jeep for about 10 months and didn't get to it last year. So that's why I went with 33s when it was time--so they'd look nice when it gets up there a bit. Just be aware the wet traction isn't all that. Doesn't bother me much because I'm a cautious driver (and hey, jeeps aren't sports cars), but something to be aware of. Otherwise I love 'em so far.

On of the things I don't like about the bfg mud terrains ...not enough sipping to help with wet traction.

Agreed. I get a little movement in the rear every time I pull out of my work parking lot (slight uphill after a sharp right) in the rain. The other time it's noticeable is hitting an expansion joint on a turn... You'll wiggle a bit after. I know from the boards that some find that very unnerving. Speaking for myself, though, I've never found it unpredictable or gotten into any trouble with it.

Anyway, anyone in a very rainy or snowy climate may want to shop around a bit. I think its a strong choice for dry and offroad conditions provided you take a bit more care to mind your speed and following distance in the wet.

Thanks! I am guessing they might rub a little into the wheel wells with the disconnects unhooked and crawling around... I don't encounter wet much here, mostly only in July and August and no one here knows how to drive when the rain hits, so am very cautious!! I am not planning on lifting at this point, been there, done that with jeeps in the past. Want a smooth decent mileage yet capable jeep for now, which is why I went with the RUBI. Thanks for the reply! Let me know about any rubs if you get out much before you lift.

According to the web tire size conversion site I went to a 255/80 is 33.1" and 255/85 is 34.1", both 10.04 wide...

Math is math. 255/80/16 is 32.1, 255/85/16 is 33.1. The difference is in rim size, since the dimensions are based on width and SIDEWALL height. A 17 in rim will yeild 1 in more OVERALL height. My 255/85/16's measure 32.5 installed.

Will do. I think you're right, based on stuff I've read before... It'll probably rub just a bit with sway bars disconnected but otherwise it shouldn't. Anyway, if I get up there before I lift, will report back.

Do 255/75-17s count as pizza cutters? LOL

Slightly off topic but the colour of your jeep on this pic is awesome!

Thanks man! I love it too. Think they discontinued this one after 2007 year, but I'm not sure. He needs a wash big time.

Those are probably the tallest pizza cutters you can have on a stock JK, can you post a picture to see how it looks from the front? I'm planning on doing exactly the same... same tires, same steelies and same PlastiDip!

Lots of great info in this thread, marked! I'm wanting to run larger tires on stock 17's, but definitely don't need mega width. Great to see pics of the various configurations.

i'd like to see what's rubbing on a non-lifted JK with 255/80 R17 or 255/85 R16 on the stocker wheels.

I'll have to search that up. It's got to be documented, photographed and the subject of a trimming plastic how to guide somewhere on the internet. :-)

You shouldn't have any rubbing with the sizes listed above.

I'm thinking 235/85/16 Duratracs on MB72s. Thoughts? Anyone have pics of this?

I'm aware of that. I don't really want to do a lift yet, and it's a daily driver and mostly highway. Bigger concern is sand/mud/wet road performance in Florida. I think narrower looks better. If it gets better MPG and is decent off road, I think I'm going with it. Cheaper than the 12.5" wides too.

I totally agree.... I'm not a fan of super wide tires on jeeps and some trucks. I really wish more companies made more 33/10.50 in 16-18in rims.

I just ordered BFG AT'sx5, 33x1050r15 from discount tire and, 5 Tracker 15x8 polished for 1559.00 out the door. They even gave me credit for the new Goodyears that came with my sport. Can't wait to get them installed next week!
