    They are going to measure smaller with the weight on the tire, but that still is pretty tall on an 8" wheel. My new KM2's with weight on them measure just a touch over 33". BFG rates them at 33.3" tall but I'm sure that is off the vehicle and on a 7" wheel IIRC.

    [​IMG]

    Used Interco Trxus MT on steel 16" x 7", 6 Lug, 5.5" Bolt Pattern wheel
    (tires look brand new...just no knobbys on them. Traded it for Taco stock spare tire & wheel I had laying around......unknown mileage. Tread is super deep compared to a KM2.

    33-13/16" @ 43psi
    [​IMG]


    Both measured sitting up level on a level floor. Measurements are from floor to a level that was held level. Pics are just for reference...I only have 2 hands :D

    Anybody know of anybody running the SCS F5 wheels with 255/85s?

    I really want to pull the trigger on some of the 4.5"BS ones but i cant bring myself to do it without seeing the look. More importantly the potential for rubbing scares me.

    Anybody got info?

    Let's see'em! Toyo open country MT is one of the best tires, IMO. Good choice

    I just priced the Toyos. They're proud of those aren't they.

    That's why I don't have them. I couldn't find a set in my $1k price range (including mounting, balance, and replacement certificates). I settled with my 2nd choice in km2s. My plan was to find the best price online, then have discount tire price match. That way if there are any issues, I'm able to handle it in person. Km2's came in right at $1k and Toyos would have been about $1.3k

    Yes they are. No way I'd pay that much for a tire. Got my KM2's for $190 per tire and I picked them up at Discount tire. We got ten of them and worked a deal with a friend of a friend who has a dealer account. Gave him $10 cash per tire...so $100 for 10 min of his time.

    KM2's dealer cost in this size was $180 2 years ago.

    IMO high mileage usually means harder rubber so less grip on rocks.

    Properly rotated KM2's should get similar mileage.

    For 5 tires I hope...

    I paid $195 per tire and after the charge for replacement cert's, tax, and mount/ balance, it came out to just under $1K for 4 new 255's ($960 exactly). I felt like it was a good price considering all the other prices I saw. I had them price match
    Www.Onlinetires.Com. At the time they had the lowest prices.
