Here's my HJ61 on 34x10.5R17 BFG's and 17" FJ cruiser steel wheels.

I need to get some wheel spacers, but other than that they've been great! Took them up a pretty difficult trail, didn't air down, and they did amazing. 10/10 would cruise again.

Great looking setup!

I'm still awaiting BMF wheels to show up 3.5 weeks later. More to follow when they arrive
Any UPS love yet? What type of BMF wheels are you after? Looking forward in seeing everything all mounted up.

I have these for my wife's 200. 33.1" is what they actually measure out to be when mounted. The circumference test never lies. Additionally, the BFGoodrich webpage reads....

The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.

If you convert the tire to a metric 255/80R17, the math meets their disclaimer.
What suspension height are you currently at under the 200? I've been really giving these some serious thought under the 200 with RW wheels and ~2.5" suspension

We are running TRD Tundra Pro Bilsteins at about 2 - 2.5" on the front... along with "long" Tundra control arms/axles/outer tie rods to gain 3.5" of width and a bit more travel. Everything clears well, but I suspect the tire may kiss the fender if turned and full compression is achieved... say dropping off a rock. While traveling straight it tucks. Stock arms will have no issues.

I was just passing through and saw a thread on BFG AT's. Would just like to pass along the message that I read an article that
BFG is having a recall of certain sizes of BFG AT's, IIRC in 17" and 18"
FYI.

Interesting. I'd like to know more about this.

I've been running a set of BFG34x10.517 KO2 on my Camp Rig since last fall. They've been great.

Tall skinny pizza cutters are the in thing.

I'm curious, what if you had just thrown a BFG KO2 275/70R18 on those Tundra rims? Is anyone else running those? It seems like you could have achieved almost identical results without having purchased new rims. Not that buying new rims isn't always fun...

OP! Looks good man. I like those wheels. I am ready for the black wheel craze to be over though... give me silver baby!
