    BF Goodrich AT KO\'s

    Just got my 35 inch BFG AT KO's. These are perfect for someone that uses there truck on the road alot, but they pull in sand and mud just fine. They are pretty quiet and the smoothiest 35 inch tire I have ever felt.

    It is a 4 inch suspension lift by softride.

    I just installed some xenon fender flares. Will have a picture tomorrow.

    Next I am thinking about the rear wheel spacers to even out the look.

    I love my blazer!

    Wait a sec...those are 35/12.50/15's right? You got them on the stock 15x7 alloys? How's that working out?

    I was running them on my wifes 79. THe wore great. Was a really good tire for a mostly street truck.

    They don't pull at all in mud but they do good in dry dirt and do good on rock. Did a lot beter then I thought they would on sand. Buddy runs them on his D90 and he almost got stuck two weekends ago with both ARB's on and I went through the same area in two low and the Detroit with less problem then he had with all four going. pictures are Here

    The tires seem to be pretty good but your right would not do too well in full mud. We have mostly sand around here even in the rain. I live in Central Florida.
    I mostly use the blazer for actual commuting so I try to keep it good for on and off road use. Sometimes you have to compromise.
    Your Memorial party looked awesome. That is some fun.

    Thanks everyone for looking at my blazer pictures. Here it is now with the fender flares installed. Next step, to do something about the rear tires being to far in compared to the fronts.

    Re: BF Goodrich AT KO\'s

    Hey that looks great! I was about to go out and buy some new rims to throw my 33x12.50 on, but you answered my unasked question. I've got stock 29's on right now, and it looks like one of those railroad conversion trucks. The only problem is that my rims are more chipped up than yours, it looks like. I wonder if I could just sand the machining lines down smooth, then polish them...

    Change the wheels. I seem to recall those factory rims are 15 x 7. If you put those tires on a 15x10 rim thefront tires would stick out from under the stock fender about 2 inches. It will also handle a LOT better on the 15x10.
    Here is a picture of my truck on the same size 35's you have but on a 15x10 rock crawler with 4 inches of backspace. Say hi to my wife (only picture I had where you could get an idea on the tire fitment). /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Thanks for the info. I may need get some new rims. Would like the tires to stick out somemore. Two more inches would be great.

    Picture you posted of course is awesome.

    Thanks again. Scott's Blazer
