I searched and searched and couldn't find a conclusive answer, but I'm trying to figure out if the 35x12.50x17 Toyo AT2 is a TRUE 35" tire. I am not talking about manufacturer specs or what treaddepot.com says they measure, but actual real life on the Jeep kind of measurements. I have 315/70/17 Duratracs on my JKUR with a 3.5" AEV lift, and although it works great I'm looking to go with a larger tire without the jump to a 37".
I've definitely considered the BFG AT KO2 37" since it measures closer to 35.5", but that would be a pretty big jump from my Duratracs which I may not be ready for yet in terms of the other upgrades (ball joints, sleeve/gusset, gears, etc.). What I really want and wish wasn't so hard is a true 35" tire - Duratracs and BFGs run small, but I know Toyo and Nitto run closer to advertised height. I need an all terrain tire for mixed driving conditions here in Colorado, so I'm not really looking outside the tires listed. I know the Toyo weighs about 10 pounds more (also an XT tire that's E rated) than the Duratrac I have now which is certainly material, but I think with my 4.10 gears I should still be ok. The Jeep drives very well with the Duratracs, so I doubt the extra weight will be unbearable.
Anyone running the 35x12.50x17 Toyo AT2 and measured the real world height?
