Retread Tires - Buy Retread Tires, Cheap Tires, Off Road Tires, and Retreads Online FTW!

But 32's are going to be way too big for only a 2.5" BB. Be ready to trim....a lot!

KM2's or MT/R's. Loud on road, wear out quickly, and pricey, but oh so sweet OFF the pavement.

km2's are sweet. I love mine, but the truxus mt's are awesome looking. I have a buddy who has them and loves them.

KM2's dont make alot of noise on the road those were the KM's the first M/T.. the KM2's are great on and off the road.

ok congrats on the bb lift. I wouldn't go 265's I have them on my 4" lift and the still rub. if you are not gonna offroad any you might could swing it. bump stops, and run a 245/70R16 or a 245/75R16. I have Big Horns and love them. Mine were used (buddy's tires) and they hummmmmm on the roadway but love the traction they give. they are very good in the mud.

My KM2's sound like someone's playing the kazoo and those are 245's. Almost as loud as my early model MT/R's on the XJ - at least the WJ is better insulated than the XJ. Maybe I should just turn my radio up.

I've heard that they wear pretty good for a mudder, most people get around 40k on them.
