33 10.50 tires

Anyone on the forum running a 33 10.50 15 tire on their Jeep? I'm going to need new tires pretty soon & have been looking for some 33's to go on my rig. Just installed a 4" RC with 1/2" booms. Soon to have a set of TJ flairs on it.

I like the 10.5 wide footprint, but need a 33" tire. BFG makes the MT in 33 10.50, & they're well in my price range.

I run the 33x10.50 KM2 on my XJ I have had zero issues with them, I have 10K miles on them. I am ordering the new 4.5 RC lift with military wrap springs in a week or so and I will be installing the KM2's on my YJ and putting Duratrac's on the XJ (my wife wants an AT tire shes not a Fan of Mud tires ) . They hook great on rocks espically when you heat them up a little, they are damn quiet, roll nice, Balance easy, Not bad in snow or rain.

The Mtz is a good tire I had them on the xj before I went to 33's. But from lots of airing down and off-roading I started to get belt separation with them

Thanks for the feedback guys. I appreciate it. Looks like I'll be getting a set of the KM2's in the 33 10.50 flavor. These DC Crushers that are on my Jeep now ride like butt, road walk like crazy & feel like boggers at low speeds. I'm not too thrilled with them, but they came with the wheels so I can't complain too much.

I had a set of MTZ's on my 1/2 ton Dodge, 35 12.50 17. I had good luck with them, but they worn down way too fast. I didn't get 15k out of them. They're made by Cooper BTW.

Not yet, I'm still fighting vibration issues. Going to order a set of Brown Dog motor mounts & a new tranny mount to see if that will fix the problem. Guess the tires will have to wait a bit.

They will be what I run tho. I think they're just the ticket. Summit has them for $174 each right now with $10 shipping per tire. My local BFG place wanted almost $250 a tire.
