about the same as the 35's seems crazy I guess they don't plan on selling many so they need to pad the price a bit.

I am an avid hunter so they have seen their fair share of off road use in the last two years. Never felt that I needed anything more. Now if you are looking for the ultimate mud tire or rock crawler tire then look elsewhere as that is not what these are intended for. However if you are looking for a tire that is just as comfortable on gravel, mud, snow, in the rain, off road or on dry pavement then look no further.

I very much recommend these tires!
Awesome, thanks for the reply. I commute almost 100 miles a day so am considering these just for DD duties.

Bushwacker73 Here's mine with 33' BFG At's. Skinny tires are better in the snow. I prefer them for the trails also.

I'm definitely getting the KO2s as soon as they come out...and seriously considering the 34s. Specs say they are 33.6" tall. Looks like they will be .6" taller and 1" narrower than the KM2s I'm running now, which stick out slightly past the fenders. I really don't think I want the added weight, etc., of the 35s. The 34s are actually 2.4 pounds lighter than my current KM2s...and nearly 11 pounds lighter than the 35" KO2.

Noticed the same thing. Will work great on my new Willys stock wheels and 2" old man emu lift.

That is just a hunting tree stand lock that fit perfectly around the wheel and spare carrier so I used it.....I wish I had more for ya but it was that simple. I spray the tumblers with lube every so often and the spare cover helps keep debris out of it as well.....works great.

I'm a big fan of skinny tires, my YJ was set up this way and I wanted that "Old School" look for this jeep as well.

I ended up getting Cooper Discoverer AT3's in 235/85/R16 (31.7in to be exact) and the look is just what I was after.

Here are a few pics of my 2012 Wrangler Sport BFG.

if off road you will need 2" lift or so. Won't rub unless max flexed or max turned you will get a little rub on sway bar. I get an honest 16-20mpg with 2014 rubicon unlimited auto and 4.10's. they handle deep snow and ice very well. Click on the photo for video. I live in snow country.

jadmt I can not say enough about the 285/75-17's tall and skinny but not fashion model skinny lol.
04-15-2014 08:24 PM
Sbuffett I'm considering the st max in 255/80/17 as well, are these tires that much heavier than stock? Wondering if it will shag the stock carrier, if so I may consider the duratracs in factory size. Why is it so hard to find a tall skinny tire? I want a 265/85

I had the KM2s in 255/85-16 for a while on my last JK and returned them ---- they were only good in mud and horrible on streets in the rain.
The ST-Maxx is the best AT I've ever used. That said, they're the best in the mud of any AT I've used but they're not a mud tire. GA clay mud is thick/slick/nasty business but I feel pretty secure with these tires. In runnier mud where you can find the bottom, absolutely no problem.

YJ Nate Man, times have changed. These are _not_ pizza cutters.

wheatbackdigger Installed my pizza cutters today. Cooper S/T Maxx 255/80r17 on stock Rubi rims. Ditched the Duratracs 285/70R17 with 1.5" spacers for the Coop's. I have to say it is a much better ride on the highway. The Duratracs were ok, but the Coopers are much quieter and smoother ride. Grant it, they are two different type tires. It will be awhile before I test them off road, but right now I couldn't be happier. Feels like I got much more control of the jeep vs the jeep controlling me.

Perfectly.

Thank you!

The road noise in minimal. Slight hum at 75. Rides better than the stock Goodyears. Seems a little more tippy around strong corners but never the feel of being out of control. My lift is at 1.5 in front and .75 in the rear with a 1" Body Lift as well. Mileage seems to be the same. The 3.6 didn't notice the change, still hauls ass. I have 373's and an automatic.

Hope this helps.

That's what the so-cal off roaders called them in the 70's.. Never heard of them referred to as pizza cutters...

SilverMiner While it's one of the best options we have, I would really love to see it in 255/90R17. Now that would be the ultimate overlander tire for me.
