Hey guys I am looking for some new tires that will be a more smooth ride both off and on pavement. I currently have some 33" MTs and they ride rough on the road. I have a 95 YJ Rubicon Express with a 4" Skyjacker lift and since in my town sometimes the fastest route is to hop on the highway and go down a couple exits, and to get to some mudding areas outside of town require some highway driving, I need some different tires. I currently have my MTs as 33x13.5x15, so something preferably that will fit my current rims. I heard about the BFG ATs so I was wanting some feedback on those before I go off spending my money.
I got 33x10.5 BFG km2s and couldnt be happier to be honest.. they are a very aggressive tread for mudding and what not.. and IMO, arent too loud or rough on pavement.. so i love these km2s.. my cousin got the 33x12.5 BFG A/Ts and he really likes them.. they arent as good in the mud or snow obviously.. but they will probably be slightly less noisey on the road, and will probably last a some longer than km2s. its all in what you wanna do i guess
im running the faulken rocky mountains. I absolutely love them! im running 31x10.50x15 and they rock. awesome handling off road, havent been stuck once in the mud and for the rocks they grab every rock i threw at them. as far on the road, they are very quiet and awesome handling. grab great, dont bounce everywhere, and like i said QUIET tires. tread life so far has been great,. and they have a 50,000mile warranty. go to my profile, then under jeep profile, click on the the jeep and look at the pictures i have of the tires. i highly recommend these tires.
Thanks for the replies, I messed up while typing my original post mine are 12.5 so with all this feed back, which size should I go for? 10.5 11.5 or 12.5? I currently have the 33x12.5x16 MTs but if I switch to BFG KM2's should I go for 10.5 or 11.5 or keep it at 12.5?
The width comes down to preference and the type of terrain you wheel the most. I run 10.50's for the fact they rip through snow and mud and don't just float on top. Most of my friends with bigger rigs are going to a skinnier tire because they are starting to realize big and wide doesn't mean better. What's the use of floating on top if the grip is underneath?
