255/85R16 is available for the KM3. As of now, BFG won't confirm they are going to make the 17" flavor in the future.

I bought 1.5" spacers and tossed em in yesterday because my left rear tire was SUPER close to hitting and I didn't want a shred job on the inside sidewall.... Like the stance with the spacers.

How did you do that? The section width on those are 12.8" (from Mickey Thompson website)...

I just measured my inner rear tire (sidewall) to the nearest point of contact and figured I can only get 11.5" section width tire (max) without rubbing on a rear suspension component. According to my measurements, I can only mount 285/70/17 tires with stock Rubicon wheels without spacers.

Perhaps I'm miscalculating...

Just bolted em on . I bought them used from a guy in my club (so I could put my 33's on my wife's) and they were mounted on the Rubi rims... He said he ran spacers so I figured I'd buy some as well. On a whim I decided to toss them on the Jeep the next morning and no rubbing to my surprise. If I hit the bump at the end of my driveway the right way with wheel full turn to the right, It did make contact with the sway bar leaving a shiny spot. The rear was super close on DS to hitting I believe the rear lower control arm or the sway bar link I don't remember off the top of my head, however this made me nervous as I did not want to shred the inner sidewall while light trailing with the family in our Jeeps so I put 1.5 Spacers on. Now they sit about 1-1.5" outside the flares. Before they were completely tucked in or close to flush. The Rubi Rims are from a Hard Rock edition, I never measured how wide they are as the rubber was already mounted.

I think interco makes the tallest ones at 36" there might be taller but the intercos are readily available.

I just ordered a set of Falken 255/80-17's to put on my stock rims. tirebuyer.com had them for pretty good price 840 plus a $50 visa card for a set of 5.

Let me know how you like them. They seem to run nice at 30-31 psi. I have the e-rated

all the 255/80-17's are going to be e rated regardless of brand.

They are not much shorter than my 315/70-17's altho they will loose a bit when under the jeep. Took between 2-2.5 ounces to balance them.



I won't be driving with them until I get back from Moab but they look like they should be a nice DD tire.

Took my JKU with some 255/80R17 Toyo Open Country R/T Pizza Cutters to Moab, they had 40K miles on them and performed great on our 2200 mile trip.













I ran them on 22 psi at Shafer and Tower Arch 4x4 trails and 18 psi on Hell's Revenge.

This is a great pic of the comparison of the two tire sizes. Width as well as height. Thanks!

oh they look smaller on the jeep . I only took a short ride to calibrate the speedo but they will be a great DD tire and save wear and tear on my bigger ones.

So we did about 160 miles yesterday and I like them a lot and they are quiet and smooth (same as the ST Maxx;s) I was expecting them to get a little better mpg than with the 315/70-17 ST Maxx's due to being close to 20lbs lighter per tire/wheel combo and much narrower. Verdict is they got about the same mpg on a route I take often.

Hi, those were my interpretation of J8 bumpers, luckily I was able to get a hold of 2 sets of genuine J8 bumpers, I have one set for sale, interested?

I posted these on a thread specific to the tires, but not here on the "Pizza Cutter Fan" thread...

I picked up a set of Kenda 601RT 35x10.50R17 tires a while back and they are great.

I am getting ready to replace my stock tires on my18 JKU.
I am pretty set on the Falken Wildpeak AT3. (have these on my truck and love them)

I am torn between the 255/80-17 and the 285/75-17


The main difference is the weight and about 1" in height.


I do have a Rancho 2" lift and not sure if staying with stock wheels or going to a '41 style wheel fro Q'trac


any other considerations?

I have the 285/75R17 with a 3.5 AEV lift on my lightweight JK (4500 lbs). I love them - I ran Duratracs for winter and these are every bit as good. I also ran then all summer on the rocky trails we have here. MTs are better in the mud. I have 5.2 backspacing on my wheels and no contact anywhere at full turn and full articulation. The wheels are Quadratec Hard Rock wheels.

I have the 255s and my friend has the 285s. They do look a little wider than mine, and I look a little taller, but it’s not that much of a difference.
I took the little extra height and cheaper price. Hope that helps!

Your current gearing would be one; if you're 3.21 or 3.73 you may want to stick with the 255/80 (depending on how you feel about the performance currently...). Less weight and rolling resistance. All depends on the usage of your Jeep really...

Also, if you don't have one already, you may end up wanting/having to look into more heavy duty tire carriers if going with the 285/75. The Falken is about 66 lbs itself (the 255/80 is around 53 lbs), but not sure what the stock wheels weigh. COULD be a consideration is all I'm sayin'.

I only have about 1000 miles on them so far, mostly highway DD'ing, but so far I love my Falkens.

i bet your friend has 285/70-17 not 285/75-17 makes a big difference in height. I have 255/80-17's and can tell you the 285/75-17's are also taller.
