You do realize that your speedo can be recalibrated in 30 seconds with an AEV ProCal, and it will adjust your auto transmission shift points at the same time.I went from the stock Sahara 18's with BFG's to 17" MT Baja MTZ's in 35s. Aside from my speedo being way off the Jeep drives great. Can do 80 no problem with 3.73 gears. No noticeable issues. I love it.
Looks great. That makes my decision. They are on sale at tirerack for $99
Yes, of course. I'm aware, I just haven't gotten to it yet. It's not my DD. I don't think my shift points are off because it shifts just fine. The speedo is another story. I paced myself with a friend and we figured out actual speed vs my speedo. So I know how far I'm off at various speeds. Superchips just came out with a new model so vendors are blowing out the 3570. I may pick one up.You do realize that your speedo can be recalibrated in 30 seconds with an AEV ProCal, and it will adjust your auto transmission shift points at the same time.
Think you'll love the GM7's!Looks great. That makes my decision. They are on sale at tirerack for $99
I may run the gm7's with 255/75-17 (same as you) or the 265/70-17 but the BFG KM2
I would press up to the 285/70-17 but really don't want to deal with washers at this time. maybe next project jeep
yup those are the same rims. the KO2's are 265/70 recommended by tirerack but they also offer a 265/65 although tirerack did not suggest those. odd. so I'm spending alot of time on these forums trying to figure out best combo.Had to find the receipt:
Rec. Tire Size:265/65-17
Run them through one of the online tire calculators...both of those are a bit shorter and bit wider than the 255/75's I have. The 265/65 is almost an inch shorter and half an inch wider. I do wish mine were wider from a looks perspective, but honestly don't think it matters when talking 1/2". This calculator offers a visualization (although not much to see as they're all really close in size):yup those are the same rims. the KO2's are 265/70 recommended by tirerack but they also offer a 265/65 although tirerack did not suggest those. odd. so I'm spending alot of time on these forums trying to figure out best combo.
No, I ran them on my 2 door Sahara for about 6 months completely stock. I did add a 1" leveling puck up front on it and also to the current 4-door Sahara. Never had issues with rubbing, turning,etc...I don't do hardcore rock climbing, but have driven through creeks, up creek banks through some major gopher holes, etc...Tirerack now says for those rims are agressive and may have to lift or make fender modifications. Did you have to modify or lift your sahara?
Very upset with tirerack - was in a few chat sessions finding rim & wheel combo and they never txtd it may not fit. I may have to send these back now.
Hey Stormin, FYI, it took me 11 months to finally make up my mind what I wanted to to with my Sahara. I upgraded my tires from the stock dualers to Duratrac's the same size 255 70 18's and added a 2 1/2 inch lift. I've had no problems. Here is a pic of it.thanks unsocbl - i'll keep the gm7's
discount tire was much more helpful than tirerack and suggested 275/70 or 265/70 for the KO2's. so most likely will go with one of those.
