    Road noise is pretty low, but you do get a very mild drone, as compared to the stock tires (when new). I only got 14K miles out of the stock junk Goodyear Wrangler SRAs. The new BFGs are no louder than the worn out stock tires.

    On a side note make sure you get a 4 wheel alignment done. My alignment was out enough in that 14k miles that the stock tires had the following tread depths at replacement (5/32 in, 3/32 in, 3/32 in, 2/32 in).

    I just hit 3k miles on the new BFGs and they still look great.

    My BFGs were blackwall on both sides

    Just fitted General Grabber AT3's - 235/55R18 on 18" rims with 30mm offset. No rubbing but only 5mm clearance in the front wheel well at full lock. Very happy with the look and handling so far... IMG_0484.JPG IMG_0483.JPG

    Road noise is low - no noticeable difference from my previous Pirelli SottoZero tires. Only increase in noise I get is from the roof rack!

    Lol! Yeah, the rack'll do that! Cool, I've been looking at Grabbers for my Trailhawk.

    I've heard of people going up to tire diameter 29" on the Trailhawk, so you're all set! Will post an update once I've tried them off-road...

    So to confirm, you're running 225/65/17 KO2's with 2" spacers, no lift and there's no rubbing? Did you do the pinch seam mod?

    Anyone know what tire sizes would fit on the latitude models? looking into all terrain tires but have the 17 inch rims not the 16 inch like most trail hawks. no lift at the moment either. but looking into getting spacers maybe 1.5

    The 225-65-17's are a good fit. Many Renegade owners have this size without problems. No spacers required for these.
