What mileage are you expecting to get from the OEM BFG KO2's? I'm thinking no more than 35k miles...I was sure wishing for a bit more...

I would expect approximately 60k with regular tire rotations.

The sun seems to tear up the roads, and the roads seem to tear up tires, in southern Utah.

60K!!! Holy crap! I'm thinking 40k would be at the wear bars on mine at this rate. 60k and these would be racing slicks.

I run 35psi in the road and air down to 25 off road, so far I've had one rotation and I'm at 12k miles so far.

This diesel does weigh in at 5200lbs and goes up from there depending on what we're doing...

I typically switch mine out about every 45,000 miles. I have had them on a King Ranch, three Raptors, two RAMS (current RAM Longhorn has 37,000 on load range E 35's with plenty of tread left) and at 9000 miles on my JLR the 35" KO2's look nearly new...

I got 55k out of a set on a Super Duty. I replaced them due to poor traction, still weren't to the wear bars. I have a set on my F150 that look great with 28k miles on them. They will easily go out to 55-60k miles. On a Jeep, I don't see any reason why those numbers can't be met, unless there is rock crawling involved.

They should go well beyond 35k if you rotate them at least every 5k to 6k. I'm doing a 5 tire rotation on my 315s and they are at 40k with significant tread remaining.

I've got the original 285s on my JK and am also doing a 5 tire rotation. They are at 26k and the tread looks as deep as new. They are wearing excpetionally well.

I've typically gotten around 60k with some tread left on the older KO tires on a 4 tire rotation. I expect the KO2 to at least get to that mark and I'll replace them before they are completely gone. That way I can sell them to a used tire dealer rather than pay a disposal fee. I got 50 bucks out of the odd-sized KM2s I had on the JK before I mounted the KO2s.

The key is the rotation. I also have them balanced at every rotation.

They start at 15/32" and must be replaced at 2/32". After 40k miles and regular 5 tire rotation, I'm sitting at 6/32". Some math tells me I still got 10k to go. That is on 1/3 offroad, 2/3 onroad usage.
