I am getting 5 BFG KM2's mounted on my stock wheels tomorrow for my bone stock unlifted FJ.

I have read everything from they wont rub at all to they rub a little with a 3" lift and everything in between.

I just want to hear from guys running this specific tire on their FJ's what is required to have no rubbing off road. Can I get by with minimal running with no mods? Can I get by with just a "leveling" kit? Or is more required?

I want no lift at all, but would not mind possibly a level. Can anyone say definitively?

Dang! Last I read you had decided on Cooper ATs and now I am reading you went back to BFG KM2s. What happened? I think you made a wise choice nonetheless. Can't wait to see pics with the new shoes.

I got a deal I couldnt refuse due to some issues I had with the Toyota dealer from whom I bought my buggy. I ended up speaking with the owner and he hooked me up with the service manager.

He really went out of his way to make everything right. i mentioned to him I was getting ready to buy some tires and he offered them to me at cost. Since the high cost of the KM2s were a big factor in my decision to go another route (in addition to some other factors) I decided to jump on the deal. I got 5 KM2's for substantially less than I was going to get 4 Coopers through a buy 3 get one free deal. So, 5 KM2s for less than the cost of 3 Cooper ST's. Just way cheap and he threw in a free alignment. Very happy. Cant wait to get my truck tomorrow.

Those are a nice tire size "tall", the problem is they seem to be very few mfg's making them. They also are only avail in the lower load ratings. I used to run them on my Suburbans. The load rating would not matter on the FJ though. This is a good question.............I was wondering the same thing.:thinkerg:

So, can I run them with no lift?

Guess I will know tomorrow. But I bet it looks great. Love that African expedition look with tall skinnies with no list on the Landovers.

There was a local guy running those in KMs with no lift and no rubbing, but on 17'' stock wheels.

I shouldnt post the price, because I got kind of a special deal due to some previous issues with my dealer.

I will say this. I got all 5 of the much more expensive KM2's than I was going to get 4 Cooper ST's at a buy 3 got 1 free deal.

That is why I stepped up to the KM2. Once I saw what he was willing to do, I went ahead and got the more expensive tire that I was going to pass on.
