First off.. Big thank you to everyone here that offered input.

I found the perfect balance between 35s & 33s, the Toyo AT2 285/75r17 on stock JK wheel, WITH 1.5 wheel spacers. Combined with 2.5" lift and it looks just right.

Also... Pics don't do this tire justice.. They are 10x more impressive in person !!

Now measurements then pics

BEFORE:
The stock BFG KMs, measured 31"on the jeep From the body mount washer, had 19" (remember, 2.5" TF coil lift)
Differentials were 9.5" off the ground
Stock tire/wheel assembly weighed 73.6lbs

The Toyo 285/75 UNMOUNTED, was
10.5" wide
33 1/8" tall
Weighed 62.2lbs

AFTER:
Mounted, 33 3/4" tall
On Jeep, 33" even
Width went to 11 1/8"
Weight is 86.6 lbs
At the body mount washer, 19 7/8".. Gained 7/8" Differentials went to 10 3/4".. Gained 1.25"

All these measurements include my 162lbs rear bumper/carrier combo with matching spare.

Set Procal at 33" speedo is right on with GPS, tire psi set at 40-42psi

Thanks for posting this information.

I ordered these same tires and after market rims yesterday.

What are your thoughts on how they are on the highway and off road?

I dig the 285/75's on the stock wheels with a spacer, great look and performance.

Looks like you could use a spacer up front for a little more height...

Edit to add:

Cooper AT3 is now available in this size... great DD tire. And the new Wildpeak AT3W carries the severe snow rating which makes very desirable. Nice to have a few more options.

Off road have no idea, will be in Moab end of June to test them.

On the highway, very smooth.. Almost passenger car smooth. No hum or anything.

And very little weight to balance, out of 5 tires, one took 3.5 oz on the inside. Others took no more then 2oz TOTAL

How do you think these will do with the teraflex leveling kit with 17x9 rims with 4.5 backspacing

Yeah that's way to high even for stock pressures. I guess that's one way to get a true 33

Finally got around to logging back in... Damn

Anyway the tires did fantastic driving from STL to Moab, did some wheeling then drove back. 2900 miles total

Hard trails we did was Metal Masher, 7 mile , Hells and Fins.

Ran about 15psi on trails. Set my Rancho 9000s to 3 and ran 45-50 in the tires for hwy driving. Went with the higher psi on the road to assist in keeping temps down on the thread.

Either way they totally rocked, smooth , quiet and very good off road.

I see your B&A numbers but those tires look bigger than that! I've got a 2.5 MC & went with 34x10.50 KO2's. Good tire, but kinda skinny on my 1.5 spacers. Measures 33.25x10.50 mounted under load @ 36psi & OEM bumpers.

I was on the fence about AT2's but may just go there too. Toyo is a really good tire & AT2's are very reasonably priced. I've got RT's on my F150 & love them! Just wish they'd offer those in a 285.

Good stuff! Thanks for the write up & follow up

Love the 285/75-17's and the AT2's are great tires.

The new Nitto Ridge Grappler is going to be available in the 285/75 as well soon. Not sure I won't have to have them...

My ko2 34/10.5-17 only measure 32.25 under load they are considerably smaller than 285/75-17 toyos. I agree r/t are awesome just get them in 35's and be done with it :):)

I was ready to go with the KO2 in 34, but after reading, the biggest complaint was lot smaller than anticipated.

And when doing the tire calculator... 285/75 was only 1/2" smaller diameter then 315 or 35. The extra money for that 1/2" gain is not worth it to me.
