    I went thru the OEM 4.88 notion, then figured out a SC would be cheaper then decided 32 inch rubber is enough.

    That's what I just purchased. So far great ride on the rode. Haven't had a chance to get off of the pavement yet.

    How are they on the road? How’s the noise? I’m a terra Grappler guy but I’m tempted to switch when I go to 285.

    Honestly they drive better than my ko2s did and they are quiet. The FJ isn't the quietest vehicle anyways at highway speeds but to be honest I can't hear the tires.

    My nittos on my 80 performed very well in the snow despite some folks having different experiences. That is a consideration for me. I’m in Northern Virginia and we can get a good bit. I’ll have to dig up some reviews on their snow performance.

    Yeah I live in West Texas. If we get 1 inch of snow they shut diwn schools. So I have no snow experience.

    From what I have seen they lack in snow a bit... but it’s not what they are for. I’ll likely stick to an AT

    I have about 10K on my KM3s and noise is not a factor compared to the wind noise of the FJC in general. This is my daily driver and I had KO2s on before. I didn't like the wet weather handling of the all terrains. These KM3s laugh at standing water.
