I had 33 KO2s... and 33 MTs, and 35s for a bit.

These are quieter, way smoother running, lighter, and way less expensive plus rated to go 30% farther than BFG KO2s..... or any other AT/MT. So my tire costs are cut in half. Plus mileage, best was 17mpg with 33s, now I get 22mpg. I did all the ego trips with lifts and LT tires, But I swear by this combination. And I have not lost any capability. In winter these skinny tires out perform any wide, tall LT. The only place an LT Floatation tire might excel is in soft sand.... or mud, I avoid that kind of mud.

On the gas mileage bump thing, I was breathing fumes at 300km before, now I go 400km before the low fuel light comes on. I'll never go back. These are so old school they remind me of my first 4x4s in the 1970s.

Sticker from the rims. They are generic, any tire shop should be able to find them.

^^^ I love those wheels and tires. What's the setup?

That looks great, classic rig. I thought those were KO2s...I am a member of the Kult of the KO2....I dont have them on the Jeep only due to Covid shortages. The fact that those outlasted the KO2s will make me look at them. I've gotten over 70k from them on my GMC Sierra 1500.

I am running a tall skinny tire as well, 285 75 18 (35.1" x 9") Well at least it is skinny compared to those I hit the trail with. :oops: When the snow gets deep up high, I am the one that breaks trail for the group. The skinny tires are so much better on fuel its is amazing more people don't use them.

Sorry to be "that guy" but a 285/75R18 should measure around 11-11.5" wide, not 9". Still, a skinnier 35 than most but a 9" wide tire would be more like a 225mm or 235mm tire.

In a way, both statements are kind of right.
Tire rack shows the Geolander has a 9" tread width, but has an overall section width (widest part of the tire) of 11.5".


It's pretty much the same for the Goodyear MT/R
