What wheels and tires are these?

Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum but not yet an owner. As of now I'm just learning as much as I can and putting together a list of mods that I'd like to have when I get my Rubi in about a year and a half. So like the title says does anyone know what wheels and tires are on these Rubis? I'd like to do some more research on them. I got these off of Off Road Evolution's website. Thanks in advance.

The top tires are bfgoodrich mud terrain km2's and the bottum tires are pro comp xterrain. Can't really see the wheels but there beedlocks so unless our running your strictly off-road I wouldn't recommend them.

Well I'm still learning so forgive the question. Why are beedlocks only good for strictly off road and not street?

Beadlocks are illegal in lots of states, since if the bolts aren't checked frequently, they can come loose, and fly off at 75mph on the highway and take off a head...........

you can run beadlocks on the street but there are only a few that are DOT approved.

and in general there is no problem with beadlocks on the road besides the hassling from local PD or people on this forum heh

only straight answer i have ever gotten as to why beadlocks arent legal on the street is because you can run very low tire pressure with them without loosing your tire, and people tend to forget to air back up with them on the road. low air pressure can cause bad things at high speeds due to the fact your sidewall flexes a lot more with lower air pressure, turning at speed is the biggest concern and can send you on your side/top if your not careful...

Actually the first one is the BFG Krawler. Right on with the second one.

If you like the looks of the beadlocks, you can always get fake ones.

Hey thanks guys and gals . You all are really knowledgeable about your Jeeps. I guess I'll have to look at different wheels then. I'll continue to browse pics to see what else is out there that I like.

I just went to BF Goodrich's website and did a comparison of the Krawler and the KM2's. It would make more sense for me to get the KM2's first since it has a better comfort rating. I guess part of modding is also knowing how you'd use your vehicle most of the time. For me that would be on-road driving (for now at least). I mean I haven't even visited a trail yet so I don't think I'd need such an extreme tire. I'm just getting my feet wet to this.

I know several and have heard of many who really like their KM2's. Good both on and off road. I know one person who has the Krawlers and doesn't recommend them. He said they get chewed up on the rocks, plus are noisey on the road.

The KM2's are among the top four I'm considering for when I'm ready for a new set.

The KM2's are among the top four I'm considering for when I'm ready for a new set.

That's what I thought when I saw the comfort rating of 3 out of 10 as opposed to the 5 out of 10 for the KM2's. This is the spec sheet I'm going by:


The first is the KM2 and the 2nd is the Krawler. They both get a 10 out of 10 for off-road but the KM2's get better gas, wear, comfort and braking. Looks like a winner to me. I'd have to research independent testing though.

Also the xterrain tire is directional so rotating is a little tougher when trying to prolong the life of the tire if it is on a dd.

Ok cool that's good to know as well. I think I'll stay mainstream for now and get the KM2's. Now it's time to find a wheel. That would depend on the color Rubi I get.

Good point. Also your spare can't really be put in the rotation.

Argument for the flip side though (because there's always give and take): A directional tread such as these tend to clean out better in mud and snow instead of getting caked in.

I've spent many hours trying to figure out what's more important to me.

That also makes sense. I think for now since I'm new and it will be my daily driver for a while I'll put the multi-directional KM's on. I'll work my way up to the big boy stuff when I get the hang of what I'm doing lol.

I'm leaning towards black. I like contrast. It's always been my style. If I do black then polished wheels will be my preference. My 2nd choice will be white. In that case, a dark/black wheel will suffice. Not sure if you guys saw my new member check in but these are my current toys. The M3 is going back in January 2012 that's why I keep saying I'll get the Rubi then. So for now I'm just gathering info and piecing together a Jeep that I'd like to own proudly some day.

The KM2's can handle lots of the big boy stuff too.

Point well taken. I guess what I meant was a more off-road oriented/purpose built vehicle.

Yah, mine's a daily driver, but I'm thinkin' "screw it". I'm looking at going with the Nitto Mud Grapplers when I'm ready for new shoes.

Get some Goodyear Mt/R's and! Get some Walker Evans 17" Beadlocks

Haha, If I get to see some more of those I might just take a loan out for them, such sexy rims! and DOT approved I believe. Could be wrong.

Make sure to post up pictures of the new rubi! Welcome to the Fam

That tire just looks like business. So far though from the little that I know and the little research that I did on the names as I come across them the KM2's seem the most favorable.

I definitely can't argue with that choice. I've heard lots of good things about the KM2's. They were my top choice at one time too. Who knows, there's a chance that by the time I'm ready to pull the trigger they'll find a way back to the top of my list again.

Have you looked at the Goodyear MT/R's with Kevlar? I've heard lots of good things about that tire too.

As you guys can see I'm really putting in the time researching this tire choice. These 3 tires have been reviewed by the same guys here. I'm not sure of their biases or anything but again the KM2's came out on top with the Nitto's a very close 2nd. The Goodyear's fell short. I'm sure there were many variables (terrain, tester etc) but I think their overall rating system might be consistent. What do you guys think? I'm still leaning towards the KM2's at this point.

My Jeep has MT/Rs on it that were on there when I bought it. They are noisy but I really like their performance. Any aggressive MT tire is going to be loud though.

The FDOT has never written a specific set of criteria for wheel-makers to comply with regarding beadlocks. The onus therefore is either taken or ignored, state by state, on an individual basis.
Some states don't give a rat's behind at all; some forbid them categorically.

If you live in a beadlock-friendly state and travel on the street into a non-beadlock-friendly state, you should be legal. Just like when I travel around the country with my stubby front bumper.
But law enforcement officers and jurisdictions all have their own personal foibles. Just like me when you bring up the subjects of illegal lights or wheel spacers....

Caveat emptor.

LOL! (sorry) I've been going back and forth over those three tires for months! Check out the reviews on Discount Tires Direct too. Really, I think those are all great tires and you'll be happy with any one of them, however the Nitto MG's would clearly be the noisier of the three.
