topher1972 Bought my first Jeep last February and it had 235/75/15 Falken Wildpeak At3's on it, wasn't long before we had a good snow, 14" and I was really impressed with the Falks, they cut through untouched snow really well and they look great doing it.

If you're going with 20"s you should probably ask the mall crawlers.

I have a 2016 4 door rubicon hard rock edition and have put a 3Ē lift on it. I found some fuel wheels thatís are 20Ē and 12.5. Would these wheels work for the Jeep and how big of a tire can I go with without rubbing and issues. Any recommendations for brand and style. It is a daily driver and little minor off roading

WXman I, too, am disappointed at the lack of a bead protection flange on the KO2, and the lack of raised white letters on certain sizes which was always a BFG hallmark.

S8NNG8 I actually did get KO2's and bumped up from 31's to 32's. Got them back in February, so I got a chance to test them out in the snow and ice as well as the torture of hot pavement through the summer. They've performed very well and after 2500 miles still have most of the raised 1/32 marking.

johnc19 KO2 is still a great tire, much lighter than MTs for dual use Jeeps.

"Hello , I just purchased a set of 4- 31x10.5x15R BFG All Terrain KO2 Tires.
From the reviews I've read, they are excellent tires and they look very aggressive.
The problem is that I noticed they no longer have the thick piece of rubber that protects the Rim. Even worse, the new KO2 actually leaves the lip of rim hanging out pretty far where as the original KO does not expose the rim at all. The original KO has a very thick rubber layer that makes it virtually impossible to ruin the lip of the rim. Any insight as to why this was designed this way? The new KO2 is great in every way except this huge downgrade to protecting the rim."
I'm with ya 100%! I've been a BFG/AT KO guy for years. But I saw the KO2 had no bead rim protector and was very disappointed, to the extent that I doubt the KO2 will be my next set of tires unless they can change that.

vetteonr Changing it up a bit, I put these on a couple of weeks ago and took a trip to my hunting camp. They rode great on the highway and performed very well on the trails. Very happy with them so far.

Charley3 17" wheels are fine (if it's a tall enough tire). So are 16" and 15" fine, IMO. Use what you have and get the best tire for it that you can.

Find a new tire shop.

Commercial Tire might not have them but everyone else does.

He's just trying to improve his sales numbers by selling you tires and wheels. Shop elsewhere!

Depending on what tire you're looking at. The new BFG AT/KO2 can only be had for a 17" rim or bigger.
