Tires on a 2010 JK need help

I just got a new 2010 JK, and I wanted to get new tires for it. I was looking at the mud terrains that are on the rubicon and was wondering would the 255/75R17 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM fit fine on my wrangler without any rubbing?

Their going on these rims, Mamba MR1 Silver Machined w/Clearcoat

need an answer fast ha

should work fine but wait to get word from some more peeps on here to be sure. JK's can run 32s without issue.

Yes. That is the stock Rubicon size. I have them on my X.

Awesome then how do you like the tires? I've read a lot of people love. I took them over duelers (what i had on my old truck).

Seems like a lotof money for just the wheels-when

Usually Rubicon "MOAB" wheels and BFG KM's "takeoffs" are around $500/600 bucks--for FIVE !!

The only negative is that they are a little loud. The first time driving with them I had the top and doors off and was merging onto a highway. As I was driving in the merge lane, I slowed up because I heard another vehicle approaching next to me. When he didn't appear, I looked and no one was there. That's when I noticed that I "heard" myself!

I think they look great. I haven't had them in the mud yet, but they were great in the sand. Based on that they should be just as good in deep snow.

Now is the X different from the Sport at all? Because I know height it will fit but what about the offset? I have the stock tires on it right now.

Sport and X are the same. It was just a name change. The Rubicon wheels and tires will fit perfectly.

But the rims here Mamba MR1 Silver Machined w/Clearcoat will fit alright and the offset wont screw up at all causing them to rub? Just trying to make sure so when I get them no issues will occur

I have no idea about those rims. I can only speak for the stock Moab rims.
