I've seen this load range C, 37" KO2 mentioned elsewhere. I even tracked down an exact model number, but the tire suppliers all stated it was obsoleted. Can you share your source for their re-introduction? I may need to wait on purchasing an upgrade if they are coming out soon.

Thanks for posting the inertia comparison; that's really useful when considering overall performance changes from oversized tires.

so the new ford raptor is coming out with 37's stock.. and this is how we got the 315 c play in the same k02 bfg tire a number of years ago. Because that was what was coming stock on the old raptor. They made it special for ford, but since they were making ti for them they also made it available for general distribution. I checked with Discount Tire thru the forum, they stated they spoke to their BFG rep who said "they could not confirm, NOR COULD THEY DENY, that the tire was coming. But they did not have a part number YET." So i am going to wait till late spring early summer keep using my ridge grapplers which are a great tire. And then get the C ply, if they never come available i will give in eventually and just get Dply.

here is another thread from the site on it.

i will also be watching craigslist closely for raptor guys selling there takeoffs.. should be some good deals to be had.

Highly doubt those will be discontinued as raptor drivers will need more when they finally wear out

I think the part number dudes dig up is either wrong or just isn’t active yet..
