    This is a pure speculative post as my 285 BFG AT's have quite a good bit of life in them left, but here's the deal, over time of course my 285's are starting to look small to me and I feel like I need to go a wee bit bigger. I think I should be able to clear 295's with no problems but y'all let me know what you think.

    Front set up:
    5100's @ 0" with OME 886's supporting an ARB with warn M8000 winch, didn't have to trim at all anywhere to clear 285's and have a ton of room in all directions

    Rear: 2" block, 1.5" aal, OME N182's, I'm 100% confident they'll fit in the rear

    Wheels: OEM OR wheels with 1.25" spIdertraxx spacers

    So what do y'all think? I doubt I'd have to do the CMC but if I did it might be a deal breaker

    What do your
    KM2's measure in actual height? They are usually on the small side, which is why your mount may not need chopping now. 295's will most definitely require a chop.

    Fear not the sawzall :)

    You will need to do the CMC at least. Most likely pinch weld modification as well

    Trust me - currently running 295's on 5100's set at 2.25 in the front and a 1.5" Wheelers AAL in the rear.

    Well I've got the AT KO's not the KM2's, but I think they're right around a 32.8", I think it'd be the width of the 295's that would get me, and I'm sitting at like 3" up front and 3.5 in the back, so I think I'd have a little more clearance than with 5100's

    I roll 295 Hankook RT03's on muh first gen.

    They measure 33.6" T (33.3" mounted)
    and 11.6" (ish) in width

    I traded up to these from 285/75/16 KMII's
    like these better...
    the RT03 295's only come in "D" load.
    whereas my KMII's were "E"

    ride is good...
    considering the 295's are bigger and a beefier tire construcion
    so tho' the ride is good on the hwy...
    It's not really much better the the 285 KMII 10 ply's were.

    What nets muh preference over KMII's... ?

    Off road... they do better in mud and snow
    On road... they offer better traction on pavement, rain or snow

    good price - onlinetiresdotcom

    I have 295/70/17 with a 3" lift and 1.25" spacers, only rubs when I'm at full crank with 3 passengers in the car.
    BS is I think only an inch bigger on my Sequoia wheels than the stock sport wheels.
