Help me decide. It will be my daily driver plus weekend trails. 2021 Rubicon Diesel on stock rims with 2" Mopar Lift. Will be mounting the spare tire also.

37" BFG MT KM3's or 37" Nitto Trail Grappler MT's

Pros / Cons of each

Will spacers be needed for the stock wheels with the 37's using the 2" Mopar Lift?

KM3 all the way, stock wheels WILL rub your shocks/fenders/etc..., and don't use spacers :giggle:

I'm personally biased towards the Trail Grapps. They look great, ride well, and have worn well in the time that I've had mine. I will say that you'll want to make sure that you rotate them frequently as the compound is pretty soft. Some people get as little as 15k from a set, some get as much as 40k....really depends on how you use them, the weight of your Jeep, driving tendencies, etc.

I've used spacers on past vehicles, but not with a tire as large or heavy as a 37" M/T. Save yourself the trouble and maintenance and find a set of tasteful wheels 👍

I've seen people on here who use the factory wheels with 37's using only the 2" Mopar lift, was just wondering if there is anything else needed. I do like the KM3 and the fact that they are less weight than the Nitto's

I absolutely loved my 37x12.50xr17 km3s on my 2 door jkr. They drove fantastic on the street and great offroad. That being said they ran VERY small. Enough that I felt a little ripped off lol. Even the 39x13.50xr17 are reported by multiple people to only measure 37.5 once under the Jeep but to be fair the majority of tires run small, some more than others.

I just ordered a set of 37inch trail graps my JL as I’ve heard nothing but great things and they run true to size. Time will tell if I like the more than my km3s
