Default Question on ko2's with lift

so I want a 4 inch lift and want the ko2s. It seems they don't offer a standard 35x12.5x20. That's what I prefer. I see they have the 325/60/20 but that is too wide and heavy for me I think. Not to mention cost a fortune. I wanna stay with 20 inch wheels so I'm looking at the 285/65/20. Going with the 4/3 zone lift with bills at 2.1(I guess) which I've read is almost a 6 inch total lift. Would these tires look too small? I've read they run a little small anyway.

Saw a pic with 285/65s on the mopar 2inch lift that seemed proportionate but don't know much about that 2 inch lift.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Thanks

285/65/20's are 34 inch. Might look a bit small on a 4" lift.

I agree w H2oman. I have them on just a Bilstein level. I would definitely go bigger with a four inch lift. Not only are they not high enough, they aren't wide enough. The best size for that size lift in my opinion is 35/12.50.

Take a look at my threads in my signature. I'm running a 4 inch lift with 3" coils and Bils set at .07, while my tires are 295/65/20's. I too REALLY wanted a set of KO2's in 295/65's, but they just don't appear to be interested in making that particular size so I had to look elsewhere.

With your described set up, you'll be nose high at 2.1 unless your factory rake is just that drastic to justify the 2.1 boost in order to level. I think the 35" tires fill the wheel well very and anything larger looks stuffed, while smaller will just be meh. Just my opinion though. Certainly let us know what you decide and throw some pictures up for us to look at!!!

Good luck!

Thanks for the replies.

I really want the ko2s but i can pass on them.
Next choice was duratracs but don't see them in a 35x12.5/20 either.
I like the look of the toyo rt. May just get those.

They make both those tires in 325/60r20. That's 35.4x12.80. That's close enough surely. And if you go for the KO2s, they fit small so you'll probably end up looking just right.

I'll be running the KO2's with my 4" lift and Bils set @.7 and see what I've got. Hopefully I'll have it done before Christmas but who knows!?

I too wanted 295's and was looking at the Toyo's but they were on national backorder. I think the 285's will look ok, just a smidge stuffed looking with my current setup IMHO

Hey lowUFO are those tires true to size? Says 34.5 but are actually 34 even. I read that at correct psi they can actually run 33.5

I measured mine when I got them and they measured 34" exactly. And I run them at 50psi.
