anytime man! its what I do for a living, so it makes it pretty easy and I actually enjoy talking about tires. a lot of people just dont like to take the time to explain **** and help others out to get what they want. I know that when i have questions i dont want some smart *** answer. I always do a ton of research before i ask any questions, and will still get sarcastic answers.
just let me know if you have any other questions.
also when fitting bigger tires the main thing you need to pay attention to is the front end and whether the tires will fit when you turn. usually if they fit in the rear they wont always fit in the front. so keep that in mind.

Thats is usually because just about every question has already been answered 4 dozen times on this site.

Yea that is a big concern. Now I have trimmed the insde of my bumper because I had to when i had a two inch lift. I wish I could go and try on a pair of tires to see how they fit and look. It would make this so much easier.

there are some places that have this tool that acts as a rim. it's like an adjustable arm that will adjust to the wheel size to fit the tire, then bolts to the hub. its basically for testing fitment. i cant think of what its called.
but it really can't hurt to just go to the place and ask them if they can test fit the front tires on your Dub, to test the turning radius. I have one guy who i've asked if he wouldn't mind doing that one time and he said he would be more than willing to help me out with putting a tire up there just to test it out. Most of the bigger companies will do something like this. like tire discounters.
They just have to be cautious bc you can still sell the tire as new if it hasnt been ran. they just have to watch to not rip the bead of the tire bc then its no longer an adjustable tire, you rip the bead you own it.

I'd just call or go in and ask them if they can bring them in, for a test fitment. if you get a cool enough guy, they wont mind at all. luckily these guys rely on me to sell them **** haha. so if i treat them well they are more likely to help me. just ask, the worst they can say is no, then youll just go to another place that wants to earn your business. but its less likely to happen especially when you are purchasing these tires. a lot of them will do anything they can to get the sale. just tell them you are going to purchase them, you just need to know which size will fit. once they know its a sure thing they will make the sell, they will be all for it. Their extra pay can sometimes rely on a sale like this. plus it makes them look good to their managers.

Thats good to know. My family buys all our tires from this little family owned business that has been their for who knows how long cause they always give us really good pricing. I will have to stop in their and see. I mean I definitely need to get new ones. My other KM2s wore un even. Even though I made sure to rotate them and always kept up with the air so its a rough ride. BUt they are about worn out anyways.

yeah i heard about KM2s wearing uneven, I personally never come in contact with them bc we dont sell them so i cant say too much about them.

Mom and Pop shops are always the best to deal with. I'm sure they will be more than willing, itll be a good sale for them.
Hit me up if you need anymore help man.
