Calemasters, you can run a 315 on the stock wheel no problem. It is almost a 35 incher

Did you get the C or E rated KO2s? Looks like the venomrex gives it a little wider stance too?




I have my new 35s BF K02 on Venomrex, actually much better then stock ride. Cabin noise actually dropped, I spend my time on the phone and people on the other end actually noticed :(

Yes I can but the tire is too wide for a 7.5" wheel. It is not recommended. The tread width is 9.9" which is too wide for a proper fit on a 7.5" wheel and will affect highway handling.

I wanted to keep mine low and run 35’s. Diesel models sit level from factory. I added 3/4” spacer after winch install to level it. With 35’s on stock wheels I’m getting a little rub on driver rear inner fender liner where it bulges over fuel filler tube. Really no big deal but I ordered 3/4” rear spacer and 1.5” for front to replace existing 3/4”. Will report back after install.

Nice ride! Did the 3/4 rear spacer make a difference? How does it handle the trails?

The Falken M/T are a no charge option. The BFG K02 are the stock selection. Just a click of an option box when the dealer orders them is how the selection gets decided.
Actually I think it depends on their supply. I chose M/Ts also, but got BFG KM3s, not Falkens

more tire pressure (or less maybe)?
The tire pressure on my 35's were set to 30lbs. You will need to reset your onboard computer's TPMS setting to the the lower pressure or you will get a low tire pressure error. I used the Superchips FlashCal programmer to make the necessary adjustments to the tire height and pressure.

Hi, first post. All this talk of tire rub brings up one question for me. If the tire is hitting the fender liner, why not just move the fender liner ? I have a set of 35’s in my shed that I will be putting on my Rubicon that were from my JK Rubicon. GY MTR’s on Mickey Thompson Classic III. I was also worried about making contact, so I got American Adventure Labs High line fender chop with aluminum liners. After researching them more, I can go to 37’s with no lift. Or so I’ve been told. When I get them on, after all this snow goes away, I’ll take pics and post.

Well I see this was a year ago but ive been wondering about the anthracite/gray color with the granite. They look very good is the color as close as it looks?
