The new BFG TA KO2 35x12.5r17 first impressions

Post  FadedLineVigil on 5/4/2015, 3:27 pm

Hi all,

I know these just came out and everyone is looking for pics. Just got home from having these mounted in 35x12.5r17. Was previously running Trail Grapplers in the same size. On JKs I've run Nittos, Toyos, KM2s, Hankook and stock BFGs. Let me say that my initial impression of these KO2s is simply 'Wow'. These things are ridiculously quiet and smooth, especially considering they are E load. I just drove home an hour or so topless and doorless on back roads and on the highway at 80 and they are very, very quiet and smooth. Bumps at highway speed are barely noticeable. My Jeep has gone from driving 'like a Jeep' to driving more like my wife's Explorer.

My only disappointment is the mounted size. These things at 35psi on a 17x9 wheel with 4.5BS only measure 33.25".

Anyway, here are some pics. I'll update this when I get a bit more driving done on them. Any questions, let me know.

Greg

The overall diameter is a deal breaker IMHO.

I've found tires 39.5" or over to be as advertized, most anything under 39.5" is misleading.  I found this while searching for a set of 37", most were 33"-35". I went with 39.5" PB which actually measures correctly.
