That's what I run as well. The ride is a little stiffer than the Rubi tires, but not unbearable to me. I was having some rubbing issues with the new Currie adjustable control arms, so I put on some Spiderflex 1.5" spacers. I do take the time to check the torque on them every couple of weeks or so. (They're holding up perfectly so far.) The spacers totally improved the ride and handling particularly with my OME 2" lift. No qualms whatsoever having these tires on the stock Rubi rims.Dustoff - That was the tire I was going to have the dealer swap to on a new Rubicon. I would do it this way so I can only pay upcharge to the BFG KM2's.
So your are convertible with traveling with your children in your rig using your stock rims?
I believe the 285 BFG KM2's are 10.5" wide, correct?
i just put 33's in mine with the stock 17s, getting a little rub at full turn. gunna put spacers on when i get the liftIn looking to put 33's on a Rubicon, what is everyone's thought on using the factory wheels? What are the pros/cons?
I would be throwing a 2-3" lift on the vehicle and have no desire to go any larger than 33's.
What are you smokin? I would bet that 95% of all off-road tires currently mounted on earth are a 12.5 on a 8" rim....typically requires a minimum of 8.5" wide wheels...anything less and I wouldn't be putting my kids in the vehicle.

I have put hundreds of thousands of miles on 12.5s on 8" wheels. This is the prefered set up for most wheelers.
7.5" might not be totally ideal, but it is totally safe.
