Starting to shop for new tires. Currently running 31x10.5x15 BFG KO's. I want to move up to 33's. I'm trying decide between a 10.5 or 12.5 width. My Cherokee is a daily driver for the moment but still see's some trail time. I haven't decided yet whether I want to run the new KO2's or move onto a more aggressive pattern such as the GY MTR's in the 12.5 size. I know the selection of 12.5 tires is much greater but I'm worried the extra width will make it tend to wander more than a 10.5 tire. Thoughts?

I have ran both 33x10.5r15 and 33x12.5r15 tires in the past on a tj and the 10.5 wide tires defiantly had better road manners as far as wondering on really grooved roads.

I haven't run them, but I like re look of a tall, skinnier fire on an XJ

Thanks for the input. I'm hoping I can run my current tires until the new BFG KM3 comes out.

Good idea. I've run several iterations during initial testing and they're great tires. I know several guys that have them now for beta testing and they are also raving about them. Everything so far indicates a spring 2018 launch.
