Tire size? I really like the squared off shoulder look the way they fit the rim. Can't wait to see the stance when they are on.

man, i would love those wheels if they didnt have the fake beadlock bolts look great otherwise. especially that many stacked up

the toyo rt tires look pretty badass too. havent heard much about them. any particular reason you went with them?

you can put me on the list of bfg owners that have never had a flat with their product (that wasnt directly related to my stupid ass). not with my old at's, radial ta's, or them weirdass colored stripe ones from the early 00's.

I don't like the bolts either but I looked for a LONG time at wheels and this is the one I kept coming back to. I didn't want chrome and I didn't want black...that narrowed the field a lot already.

Toyo's have a really big following around here. This is my first set but I know lots of guys running Toyo's and they have good luck with them. I was considering the Cooper ST Maxx and the BFG KO2. It came down to sizing and availability.

I'm actually a BFG owner that has had problems with their tires. My dad's truck just had a two BFGs come apart too (within a couple months of each other). I still think they're a good tire and I'd put them on a rig if the size/cost were right. No manufacturer is perfect though.

I had a set of that same size except they were Toyo AT2 on my F250 and loved them. I think they are more than worth the cost. Looking good on those wheels!

^^^ running at2's right now. have about 30k on them and 2 of them are right at the wear bars. found out 2 weeks ago that they are 100% worthless in the snow at this point. will need to be replaced before next winter

completely understand. hard to find original wheels for these vans period. you chose well. especially knowing the hurdles at hand. look forward to seeing them installed. will look badass with two of those on the back bumper!

considering we are both littered with les schwabs in our area and how easy they finance, having a large following isnt a surprise. they are very popular around here as well. i like the looks of those rt's, but havent heard any feedback about them. good or bad.

when they first came out their site showed comparisons between all their open country tires (no longer up) and their chart showed that the rt's wernt a long lasting tire when compared against the at2. at the time my at2's were still pretty fresh but i could see how much wear they had already and somewhat stopped considering them as a replacement. please keep us posted on your thoughts about them.

agree.

and when you have the best selling off road tire, of course your going to hear more bad stories cause more people are out there using the hell out of them vs the others. only reason i didnt go bfg due to all the horror stories i saw listed on this forum when i first joined. the ko2's are back on my radar now though.
