    Ok guys....so i bought a set of bfg km2 in 255/85/16 i have my bilstines set at the max and look great!! Until.... i was driving down the hwy and hit a bump and the tire hit the edge of my arb bumper and just about pulled me into the other lane!! Well what im hoping to do is exchange them back over to KO2 in 265/75/16 i have put almost 5000 miles on them and im just praying they will exchange them without a big bill on my end i told them i would be willing to trade even for a cheaper tire to keep it even steven....so wish me luck guys and ill keep you all updated when i get a call back monday also if any of you have done this what was your experience? ???

    Well just incase anyone is wonderingif you can exchange your tires at discount tire its a NO..... they say its becuse its a lifted truck and not the stock tires that they cant exchange them not even a prorated exchange so looks like my best option is to find a guy to trade me

    Where do you live? If they have an active forum on this site or any others those tires should sell quick.

    Buy an angle grinder and "clearance" the ARB bumper to make room? Not uncommon thing to do to fit larger tires.
