Thanks for any help.

They appear to be BFG All Terrains.

Jackal is correct, they're All-Terrains... I gotta say, they don't seem to have changed much in the ten years or so since I'd last used them. (been out of the 4-wheeling community for a while).

These things eat through the snow.

That's what I was considering along with the Duratracs for the new '14. Haven't had a set of A/Ts in years on my ZJ, so I wasn't sure how they've changed. Thanks!

Anyone who has experience or info on putting 295/65/20 tires on a wk2 any advice would be appreciated.. I am planning on getting the 2.5 RR and refuse to do AT tires. I want to put the 295 Toyo mt on the stock 20 wheels and hoping it won't rub if I put spacers on there. The exact dimensions are like 32.8 high and 11.5 wide on 20 wheel. I know there is a white jeep on this thread with the same tire size but he has the aftermarket rims so I'm hoping if I put spacers on the stockers then that will work too.

You mean 295/55/20 - the 65s would never fit, no way, no how.

I mounted 285/55/20 Terra Grapplers on the stock wheels with 1.5" spacers and took them off immediately - that is, I didn't even put it in gear. The tires looked great and cleared everything STANDING STILL but the corner of the tire was WAY too close to the front fender while turning. It would have rubbed for sure. That's with the RRO leveling kit so you'll have an extra half inch but extra height doesn't solve horizontal clearance.

It sounds like you have your mind made up but you should plan on the tires rubbing the fenders. Hopefully the damage will be acceptable.

Thanks!! It's a limited model but fitted with original Mopar 20inch bi-color Matt finish alloys and 275/45r20 Pirelli tyres. I took off the stock 18s. My wife only wanted these 20s to be fitted on it. I too love the Matt finish on these alloys. I also fitted the chrome mesh grille, chrome side mirror covers, tinted the front side windows and fitted the official Jeep mudflaps front and rear.

Yeah I meant 295/55...... Hmm well If it's a bad as you say I might just have to go with toyo mt 275/55... Wonder if it would look better with the 275's and leveling kit or 275's and the full 2.5 lift

A question for you guys with the RRO 2.5" lift and basically 32" tires -- How much power loss and MPG loss have you noticed? Id like to hear answers from guys with the Hemi and the v6

Thanks
