@BluJay I know its only been a few weeks but are you still liking the goodyear's? I am torn between those and the BFG KO2's. The KO2's are 10lbs heavier and a D rated tire, so will be stiffer and add about 50lbs to the wheels over the stock tires. I have only run C rated before. Decisions, decisions and it isn't even here yet :)

So far all of my thoughts have just further solidified my positive experience. Would highly recommend them! I also like how it made little to no impact to my all electric range as well. Still averaging about 25 miles on a full charge, and that loose drifting feel on the highway and at decent city speeds has significantly lessened. Those were the two things I was most concerned about along with getting a more aggressive tred and all around better tire. 5-Stars!

Thank you so much for posting your pics.

This matches exactly what I have been looking for. They look great. The pictures really don't do them justice. Just drove home from Discount Tire with the windows down and didn't hear any difference from the stock Duelers.

I also like that they don't stick out from the fenders.

Looks beefier, and adds just a hint of extra height.

With only an extra inch and only 5 more pounds, I expect minimal impact on MPG.

I know it needs a bath, but a decent chance of rain almost every day for the next week and a half.
In Texas. In July. 🤷‍♂️

I guess I need to start my build log now. So far, I have only done a few little things.
Looks killer!!! Did Discount Tire give you any offer for the stock tires? Did you sell them on FB marketplace or craigslist? and if so did you get a good price? I'm looking to do exactly this same tire upgrade. My tires only have about 300 miles on them. Would be nice to offset the cost of the new ones by selling the stock.

Discount tire actually gave me $100 per tire for the remaining tires I had, which really made the whole thing make sense for me. If not for that, I was kinda on the fence. Hope that helps!

After driving on them for a little while, I am very happy with these tires.
They really help the Jeep look. They ride great. I don't hear any additional noise, even with the doors and top off. I haven't seen any reduction in my MPG's or electric range.

I traded in my stock tires to Discount Tire, but not for as much as BluJay got. I did get discounts for the Certificate and for using their Credit Card, so was happy with my deal.

If you have a way to transport them after they are changed, you might check with a couple of used tire dealers in your area before you go to get them changed. I had planned to do that, but when I stopped in to discuss, I was happy with the deal that we got to along with the reduced hassle. So I don't know what a used tire place would have given me.

After a nail in one of my tires and blowing out another yesterday on a chunk of concrete in the middle of the road I decided to just upgrade all my tires rather than replace the two stock ones. Went with some Goodyear Wrangler Ultra Terrain A/T 33's on my stock 20" rims. Size is 275/60 R20. I have to say... The ride feels like it might actually be smoother than the stock tires. Also, I have little to no vibration, added a little height, and they look amazing. Got 'em for $1200 out the door with a sick replacement warranty included on all 5 for 70k Miles/10 Years. Would highly recommend so far!
