I’m at about 11,000 miles on them they are great in snow and mud and ride quiet which is a plus the biggest thing for me was cost as I got them for $140 a tire price matched them to Walmart at America’s tire but they are more now but still less than a lot of the other brands. They also run pretty true to size
I’m looking at the 275/70/18’s. I think I’m going to try them. Worst case, I’ll probably be swapping them next year anyway with the way we drive.

2019 JL Sahara
My Sahara has 275/70R18 BF Goodrich KO2s: they are 1.1 inches taller and 0.8 inches wider than the OE 255/70R18 Bridgestone Duelers. They fit without a lift and without rubbing.

PS - If I were to replace the OE tires with a larger set, I'd choose an All Terrain with a more aggressive tread pattern than the Bridgestone Duelers.
My wife also has the Duelers. Is the KO2 size on your Sahara the same that comes stock on Rubicon? Also, how does that affect your speedo.

The Rubicon tires are 285/70R17, which works out to 32.7 inches. My KO2s are 275/70R18, which works out to 33.2 inches.

My JL came from the factory with the speedo miscalibrated. Now that it’s got larger tires the speedo is spot-on.

I know these are probably stupid questions.....would a Rubicon take off work on my Sahara rims that had Duelers?

No. Rubicons use 17” wheels, Saharas 18” rims.
