I think 35 x 10.5 would be very cool.

I would like to replace tires with something taller (80+) without having to swap rims...but doesn't seem like much is out there taller while keeping things narrow, unless you change rims. Will most likely be adding a lift (height TBD). Not looking for a swamper tire but something to handle highway and off-road balance 80/20.

Anybody know of anything? Advice? Thanks for the help in advance.
Look at the Cooper St Maxx, it comes in a 255/80r17 and many forum members love them. If you want to wait a few months the bfg at ko2 is coming out with a 34x10.5r17 which roughly translates to a 265/80r17.

CPTCO I just saw this thread.

Anyone who has ever driven on a muddy road, and I'm talking about driving not mudding, knows that skinny tires are better than wide ones. Those of us who live in the boonies love skinny tires. Less resistance on gravel roads, better traction in mud, fewer flat tires.

Splnkr How tall? Don't know if this helps or not. I swapped my stock BFG LT255/75R17 BSW Off-Road Tires for five Goodyear Duratrac LT285/70R17's. Slightly wider (some slight rub at full tilt pre-lift) and slightly taller. Still neatly tucked under fenders with stock rims. I went from like 32" to 33" ish. YMMV. CG

The 34s are actually 2.4 pounds lighter than my current KM2s...and nearly 11 pounds lighter than the 35" KO2.
I keep hoping the KM2s will eventually get this tire size.

Maine JK Here's mine. 245/75/16 Duratrac's, do they count? I like do them with the stubby bumper. Eventually I want to upgrade from the steelies, expensive...

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.

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.
