Looking for as tall a tire I can use without rubbing. I see there is a 34"x10.5x17 KO2 but haven't seen any threads on it. looks slightly taller and narrower than the 285x75x17 so should fit without rubbing. Also Goodyear has a 275x80x17 which is 34.3" and 10.8" wide that might fit but I haven't heard anything about it. Seems like most people run KO2s or Nittos, so not sure about the Goodyear Wrangler.

I had them on my JKR. It’s a good size. They performed well everywhere.

I had them on my JK and ended up wishing I went with 35’s. They performed well and looked great but I think I would have benefited from the extra width and stability from the 12.5” while off road.

I had that size on my 2015 JKU Sahara. Loved them! They are pricey, but they are the perfect size for a Wrangler IMO. The Jeep handled the road and the trail like a champ!

Yep - used the same tires on my JK Sahara. For, they worked with only a 2" spacer lift, which was all I could afford at the time.

They worked well and did not let me down.

I had the 34x10.50r17 KO2 and the 285/70r17 (33") KO2, and although the 34" KO2 was "supposed" to be taller, mounting on the same vehicle they were within 0.1" of each other. They were great, but definitely ran smaller than normal KO2's. I'd look at the 285/75r17 C-load Ridge Grappler instead

Okay size, a 285/70r17 measures just as tall. Or 255/80r17 is almost the same just slightly skinnier.

id go for 285/75r17,

nitto makes a 35x10.50. Heavy suckers though, also i think its a kenda klever? Maybe MT made in a 35x10.5 also

I had been considering the Cooper STMaxx 285/75R17. I think they are a true 34" with a pretty aggressive tread. I have 305/60R18 (12.1 x 33") STMaxx tires on my pickup and they have worked well on all types of 2 track roads including some moderate mud.
