OP stated in first post 315/70R17 but maybe I misread it
You read it correctly. Original poster stated he had his KO2s mounted on his factory Rubicon wheels. Factory Rubicon wheels are 17."
The KO2s come in either load range "C" or "E" in size 315/70/17. Personally I'd insist they swap out to the"C" load tire.

They did the same thing to me! Well close. They mounted 3 E’s and 1 C. I wanted C’s for sure as I wanted a ride quality close to stock. I’d get them switched but I don’t off road much.

If you only need load range C tires, tell them to swap out the Es. The increased unsprung weight of the Es is not trivial.

A lot of these guys that work at these places just throw tires on and this is why I am usually in the bay watching what they do and have on occasion stepped in and said WTF...are you doing, they are all overworked and it’s just get them in/out as fast as possible

That's just doesn't sound like a good idea to drive around on. The different weight on each end of an axle can't be good for alignment.

Sorry my post didn’t come out right. I did have mine changed, I was speaking to the OP.
