I have no lift, it's all stock and I want to keep it like that for now. My question is if I get 32" tires will I have any issues off road without a lift? Also how is the life of my selected tires, compared to others.
Should I get 15" or 16" rims and what backspacing should I get trying to keep the tire from sticking past the fenders.
Well I'm more familiar with TJs so I can only answer some of your questions. The KM2s are a good tire, comparable to the GY MTR/Ks, they should last a decent while and be pretty good with regards to onroad handling and noise. They will probably suck on ice though as do most mud tires. 32" tires should clear everything just fine offroad but I don't know if a 15" or 16" wheel will clear JK brakes, someone else will have to jump in here for that. Also, I know 4ish BS is good on TJs but again I'm not sure on JKs.
