    I have a New DCLBOR and am eying a set of 265/70 KO2's. It's a one time window to get it done thru Costco combining their Michelin tire special and some vouchers for an out the door price of about $500. Plus I could sell my Wranglers which have about 1200 miles on them, or keep them.
    I have NOT driven a set of the KO2's, but want a set of adventure ready wheels upon retirement in a few months.
    Thoughts?

    I just bought 5 of them in C Load 265/70/17 and love them. Great in the snow, quiet, and not all bulky and heavy feeling while driving.

    Maybe go for 265/75 for a little taller stance?

    I'd do it in a heartbeat. I took the car tires off my truck a little while back too for ko2's.

    So stock.
    Mind providing details on this deal through Costco? I’m in the market for some KO2s.

    Costco has $70 off Michelin right now, and will have .01cent mounting from Jan 3-11 per the tire guy I spoke with at the store. I've also got a $200 credit coming from a rebate, and two $100 Visa cards I'll be using.
    Like I said, just a rare opportunity. Supposedly Michelin bought BFG, which is why they are in the system.

    My big question is, how load are the KO2's? Don't want to hear them humming like crazy.

    I got 5 for $1,000 installed Black Friday at 4 Wheel Parts. $500 is a no brained. Do it. I notice very little road noise with them

    interesting....
    are these a good replacement for the stock tires? no mods or lift? I'm in snow a lot my tires are at 30k miles and seem ok but wondering about the KO2
    short question - "these fit no rub without any lift mods?"
    My truck is un lifted
    thanks in advance

    There are better snow tires for sure. They aren't bad, just not great. 265/70/17 fit with no lift, no rub, front mudflap removal

    This is true (Michelin and BFG) For quite some time now according to a friend of mine who works in NS Michelin plant.
    They also make tires under other names as well for stores like Canadian Tire.

    Try to do 265/75/16 if you can. Looks great on these trucks.

    I thought all TRD Off Roads had 16" wheels.
