Are you running 34x10.50/17 KO2s on you

I'm considering a set for my 2015 HR. I think that I can mount these on my stock rims with no lift or spacers and not encounter any rubs or interference, even with the swaybar disconnected. If you're running these tires, are the stock rims working or did you add any mods to make them work? Or did you replace the stock rims and add anything else? Thanks!

I looked very hard at those but was turned off by the price, and decided to get the Cooper ST Maxx in a 255/80/17, which is very similar to the 34x10.5/17 size-wise. I then decided to get new wheels too and went with the ST Maxx in the 255/85/16. I know that didn't really answer any of your questions, but both the KO2 and the ST Maxx in those sizes fit the stock 17" wheels. I also have a Teraflex performance leveling kit and quick disconnects. There appear to be people with the setup you are asking about on some of the other Wrangler forums.

Thanks, Bob. I'm curious about why you went with new wheels. It seems that the overall size between the 16s and 17s was the same. It does look like the BFGs are about $100 more tire, but folks claim that they're better than the Coopers in most snow conditions.
