From what I have seen, many tires do not measure out to their "size". My 30" Firestone AT's measured out to 28.5" tall and my 32" SuperSwampers measure out to 31" tall.

As per Tire Rack they are 30.4" tall tires. Almost all tire companies are off a bit, not exactly 31" inches, like the BFG muds measure at 30.8" tall. Super Swamper is pretty much the closest to true size.

As for the Kumho tire, its deffinatly a good tire. They have a tread pattern almost identical to BFG muds and can do just as good in the mud. The only diffrence between these and BFGs is the sidewalls aren't as strong, and tread depth is a little less then BFGs. (19/32nds compared to 14/32nds)

I'm just about to buy a set of 31-10.50's myself (88 YJ, 1" shackle lift). These are significantly cheaper than GY or BFG. Anyone have any ideas why that is? If they are "as good" then I'd sure rather save a few $.

Number one reason is name. With BFG or GY, your buying the name along with the rubbers. As far as quality, the sidewalls are aren't as strong which can play a significant role when aired down, but they handle just fine. Also the tread depth is quite as deep, but again, its not that much of a diffrence. IMO the Kumhos are worth it.

My jeep has only ever killed 3 things, a cat, a deer, and my wallet. What's the problem officer?

1992 Red YJ. Lifted, locked, and loaded with beer (Disclaimer: This doesn't mean said driver endorses drinking and driving, please enjoy alcohol responsibly and do not operate any vehicle of any kind, thank you....)

Thanks to the price of gas here ($4.25 a gal) I just bought a mountain bike, 0" of lift, 0" of travel, MT's, locked rear axle, oh yeah, it's the sh#$.
