Loas range for a tj

33x12.5-15 km2's
I'm thinking load range C if they make them or D?

C will ride more comfortably than a D. You shouldn't have trouble finding C load tires in that size, if you go metric then it seems the load ranges increase.

If I got a D would the tires maybe not wear as fast? Not exactly sure of the science on this

I don't think it works that way. The load range is in relation to the sidewall stiffness which wouldn't affect tread wear.

I didn't think so either. A man can wish though.

I dont know about the KM2's but it works that way for the Cooper STT and Mickey Thompson MTZ's.

33x12.5 15's in a C range STT run about 30-35k. In a 285/75 "d" they run about 40-45.

MTZ's follow the same pattern. I have yet to see very many that make it past 40k. Yet a 285 with 45K on it still has plenty of tread left. Enough that I generally sell them for pretty good money to help fund the next set.
Also, almost all D range tires have a stronger (thicker) sidewall then their 15" cousins.

They are also round about 50$ more expensive a pop. Sadly. Otherwise I'd keep my 16" Moab's

Yep, more rubber= more money

Actually a 33x12.5 on a 15 is cheaper than the equivalent on a 16... I do not know why.

Less rubber is why the 15 is cheaper. In the case of the MTZ.

33x 12.5/15 is 56 pounds
33x 12.0/16 is 61 pounds
33 x 12.5/17 is 63 pounds

Even though the hole is bigger the tire weighs more because they are making the sidewalls stronger and the tire thicker.
