Does this get anybody else excited? I think this is new. I went with the current gen's 315 Cs for their weight, ride, and price. These might get me to move to 37s in the future.

These are BFG KO2's! I too was seriously thinking of going from 35's KO2's (315's) to 37's (load range D2) but a 'C' would be ideal! Thanks again Ford Raptor!
Interesting, thanks for sharing

Thanks for confirming I wasn't getting excited for nothing. Hopefully they have the same snow rating too - forgot to mention that as another reason why I went with the BFG 315 Cs. Just checked TireRack, $297 for 315 Cs vs $525 for 37 Ds. Hopefully these split the difference a bit.

Wow, 37" KO2's in C rating would be great. My next set for the gladiator will def. be those then assuming it still has the snowflake. I will likely just retain stock tire size on my wife's unless I can convince her to go 315's when they wear.

I know nothing about tires but C is the better ones to run in JL VS D?

Eh, that's a hard question to answer. I think for most people (if we hold KO2 constant) -- yes, because it is closest to the stock tread rating and will likely provide a similar ride quality since its' the same tire model.

Typically though, a D for instance will support more weight. But C range is perfectly suitable even for a heavier Wrangler. Some D/E etc rated tires will provide a stronger sidewall, but it's not always the case. It will ride firmer as well, and may not wear as nicely if you're not careful.

I always try to stick to C rating, though my tire of choice off road (I run KO2's daily on road) is the Nitto Trail Grappler and they only come in D rating for a 37. Since I'm bumping up to 42's for the Gladiator, those will be C rated, though it's less of an issue since they're used infrequently.

Pretty awesome news! Since K02s tend to run shorter than most, this may be more like a true 36. So a great choice for someone wanting a bit more than a 35 without the weight, gearing, and clearance issues of a true 37.

Well, I have decided to move up to 37's! These new BFG KO2's shown during the new Raptor reveal are a 37x12.50R17 load range C...Now for the bad news, I went to my local Discount Tire (have bought lots of tires from them) to see if I could order a set and the store manager was able to contact Discount Tires BFG rep who said "I cannot confirm or deny" and we have no official part number yet...but check back closer to Raptor's release date...

This is great news. It’s about time a C rated 37 comes to market.
I’m surprised the 392 didn’t come with these.

Nice! Thanks for the whole picture, crazy that 37s in a C-rated are rarer than a hellcat Rubicon.
