    BFG KM3s

    For those in the know looking for a little help.

    Bought a set of "37" inch BFG KO2 and much to my surprise they are a tad over 35 inches.... 35000 miles later I am begining to look for new tires and come across the BFG KM3 39 inch tire.... if past expirence hold true this should measure out to about 37.5 ish. If true then I can see a set of these on my rig to be the "37 inch" tire I have been looking for.

    My goal is to find a set of BFGs that are as close to 37 inch tall as possible for my JKURR My build and gearing is set of a 37 inch tall tire and I would like to try out a set of KM3 this go round. Read good reports on the new tire.

    Thank in advance.

    Sounds about right. BFG side wall measurements are generally approx 2in more than the on vehicle measurements. Every tire brand will have variance but if I remember correctly BFG has the largest variance

    Im working on chasing down a set of the 39x13.5 KM3S right now. They measure 37.8 if that helps. Discount tire showed 0 in inventory this morning, but they are looking into it. Ill keep you posted.

    No problem, just heard back from DT. They said that they were not available or in production right now but to check back in a couple weeks. The BFG only schedules out 4 weeks. Ill keep updating as I know more.

    interested to see how you like them and how they really measure out. Getting ready to go to Evo long arms and King coil overs next month tires will be in the near future.

    Cheers

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
