Kenda Klever Tires

Quick question, I drive a 2008 Wrangler Rubicon, I'm in desperate need of some new rubber. I found multiple reviews of the "Kenda Klever KR29's" A super good priced tire. Are they going to fit on my jeep?

I'm looking at the Kenda Klever M/T KR29 255/75R17
my current rubbers are
BFG M/T LT255/75R17

Are the Kenda Klever's going to fit on my Jeep and rims properly? All the websites I've checked said yes, except one, so I thought I'd ask the experts

Thanks!

The Kenda KR29 MT actually runs just a little bit bigger than the BFG KM. To answer your question, yes they will fit your JK Wrangler perfectly.

Here are some pictures of mine mounted to 17x7.5" wheels (exact same dimensions as a Jeep JK 17" wheel) so you can see how they look.

Mounted on the wheel, here are some specs:

Tread depth 18/32nds
Tread width 8.25"
Section width 10.5"
Height from ground to top of tire 31.5"
Weight of tire and wheel combined 77 lbs.

As you can see, they are a little bigger than the stock Rubicon tires. Not big enough to cause you any problems though. In fact, most people would prefer the slightly larger sizing.

I got this set mounted, balanced, free rotations, free alignment, tax included on the road for $750. That's hundreds less than the smaller BFG.

Got these on the interstate today and at 70 they roll smooth as butter. Above 45 they get noisy, but no where near as noisy as the BFG KM2s I had. The tread blocks do have a small amount of siping so they should be fine in rain and snow as long as it's not icy. I think they'll perform well in the mud and dirt and for the price I'm very happy with them. $750 out the door for mounting, balancing, tax, alignment, the whole nice yards. They do run slightly larger than the stock JK Rubicon tires so keep that in mind if you're replacing stock tires with these... I wouldn't mix match them with BFGs.
