Hey guys,

There are a lot of threads out there saying different things about the actual size of the BFG KM2 tires in 37".

Not that it makes a HUGE difference, but rim width might affect this, like a 17X9 vs a 17X8.5?

Anyway, I am looking for some info from people who have the 37X12.50X17, and as to what rim size they are running, as well as how tall the tire actually measured.

I just got into a 3.5" Metal Cloak lift and may will either run stock wheels, Hutchinson Rock Monsters, or Method 105 Beadlocks.

Hutchinson RM: 4.5" backspacing for 17X8.5

Method 105 BL: 3" Backspacing for 17X9

Stockers: 6" backspacing on 17X7

So depending on how everyones measure out will help me decide which wheel combo would work best for my lift. Any Help is Appreciated!

I ran some used ones on a stock wheel with 1 3/4" spacers and they barely rubbed during normal driving. Other than the mark they left on the lower control arms I didn't know they rubbed.

Not sure of height but quite a bit smaller than the Trepador bias plies that replaced them. They are listed as 37.1" wherever it was I saw them listed...can't remember.

I can measure a used unmounted one if that is any help at all?

This tire was also indefinitely backordered everywhere I looked about a month ago...

Thanks. So As of today, I freaked out and just ordered the GY MT/R-K in 35X12.5X17.

No One has them, though. DTDirect and Tirerack are backordered to May. Tread Depot has no ETA.

So now we may need to actually get these regardless....

Thanks. Still open to more info or pics. Tire rack is backordered on GY MTR-K 35 and 37", as well as 37" BFG KM2's.

Tread depot says they have the GY MTRK's which I may just order instead of the 37" KM2's, but I guess Northridge4x4 has the 37" KM2's right now and I love giving those guys my money!
