RafJeep Thanks!

TJMichael 30 x 9.50 on a stock YJ. 31 x 10.50 should fit with extended shackles or a 2" spring lift.

RafJeep Anyone know how big of a tire you can use on a yj without needing a lift kit?

Perfect tire for this, yet quiet on the road and will last longer than an M/T tire.

WXman This is the one reason I won't run KOs or General AT2s anymore. The interlocked tread sucks out loud if you live in this part of the country where we've got mud everywhere and snow in the winter.

It's their AT tires, I did some research and seen many saying they are really good in the mud for an AT tire. Since I already have a spare I would rather just match up all my tires. the tread looks wider than the bfg's

Just something to keep in mind when its time for a new set.
Oh and when you drive all gravel rocks are slinging all over the bottom of my tub! POP, PING!!

Actually these were brand new installed by dealer for free, today is actually my 1 year anniversary of owning it. So I'm using these until they wear. the spare is a dick septic fcII so that tells me the PO were running these, I read they were pretty good in the mud.

1st87yj I used to run those on my old blazer. Great all terrain tire, but not quite enough open tread for mud. Best tire for light wheeling, logging and fire roads, dirt and grass paths ect. Never had good luck in the mud though.

Bfg ko's and mud :/

hit a back road and went through some mud mix with small gravel. geez these are not the best tires for this mix it was so hard to get off even with the power washer at the car wash it took me a long time to clean each tire and cost me lots of quarters lol
