Looks Great!!!

Keen to hear some feedback on how you like that size.

Am currently looking at rubber to go on the Commander Wheels.

Interested in how the KO2s go as well! Would really like some MTs in this size but they seem as rare as hens teeth here in oz...

32" BFG KO2's

First impressions is they are so much quieter then the worn out Generals, despite being taller acceleration and handling seam to be on par.
What size where you running before, these are on my shortlist of tyres to get, just need to decide on a size.

What lift do you have, any rubbing, they don't look big.

I had 265/70/17's on +30 offset rims. The reason I went to 255's is they (265) made contacted with the rear quarter lip when the rear suspension compressed when traveling through dips in the road. Cut up the edge of the tyre, worse when towing.

That 5mm less (per side) makes all the difference, they no longer rub on full lock either.

I have never had BFG's before and so far I'm impressed.
Grip well on and off road and not to noisy. Handled the high country tracks like Billy Goats with complete confidence aired down to 22psi. They don't appear cut up at all, still look like new.

If you want to keep the tyres under the guards then they fit the bill.

OME HD dude

No rubbing in the front with the pinch weld folded flat and in the back I had to bend back the guard lip where the rear door closes against

They look a little bigger in this pic
