I like my Sport S silver wheels and I might powder coat them black.

I am looking to swap the stock sport tires with 33 KO2s (just the tires, want to keep sport wheels) I was debating between duratracs and KO2s and finally decided to go with KO2s as they age well. If anyone did similar swap please share pics.

This is my bone stock Sport S. I replaced the antenna with antenna X after this pic.

This is our fleet Sport (Punk'n) with Rubi take offs. I have some older Rubi take offs with Falken AT3W, which I believe is a better tire. Either way, a good AT or MT is a must have!

Thank you, looks great on your PUNK'N jeep.

I am specifically looking for KO2s on silver sport wheels.

I haven't ever seen this combo - I think primarily because most 5-set Rubi takeoffs can be had pre-mounted to Rubi wheels for under a grand so people seem to just mount em as is.

Yes, you're correct. There are plenty of pics of sports with Rubicon takeoffs.

Contrary to popularity, i like the sport wheels rather than rubicon's.

No real wheeling or rubbing yet. The speedo is 1-2 mph slow at 60. Shifts great, drives great, looks great (in my opinion.)

They'll probably want as much or more than just buying new tires. And you won't have any tire warranty.

True. Coincidentally, I was checking them on Costco. They have 4 tires with road hazard warranty for < $900. I will hold on of someone wants to get rid of their takeoffs for reasonable price for a month or so, or else will jump on the Costco deal by Thanksgiving.

I have the Falken Wildpeak ATW on my half ton pickup. Those are worth looking at vs the bfg’s. Better wear, better snow ratings, cheaper. Plus they are OEM on the Gladiator Rubicon.
