I'm thinking of getting these in 33" for my stock 15" 60 rims. They would go on an 80 axle transplant. I was considering the BFG AT KO2's but I hear they aren't very good in the rain and it rains here a lot.

I bought 12.5 ones. They are a bit too wide for the factory wheel but will do for now. Could use a 8" wide wheel to look better IMO

I had Mickey Thompson ATZ-4's on my 60 for about 8 years / 50,000k and found them very good all round. Was running 305/70/16 on 8" rims with -13mm offset, 38mm spacers on the rear and 50mm OME lift. When I did the rebuild I wanted to go slightly smaller for clearance and better tracking on the road. After some research and talking with others I went for a set of BFG KM3's in 285/75/16 (same OD just narrower).

I absolutely love these tyres. They're excellent off-road in all conditions and perform surprisingly well on the road. Users have commented that they find them quieter than a lot of A/T's and I'd certainly concur. They are quieter than my old Mickey's, although they were starting to get old and hard so that may not be a totally fair comparison.

These are definitely an M/T that works in all conditions and isn't compromising the on-road experience to any significant degree.

Mickey on the left, KM3 on the right.

I have a 60. The tires on it from the prior owner are Uniroyal Liberators P235/75/15 108s. I see the general consensus is 31x10.5x15. These 31s appear to be quite a bit wider. Does anyone ride on 235s? I see BFG A/T exists in both of these sizes.

The 235/75R15s are close to the stock tire size. A small bump up in height would be the 30X9.50R15s.

BFG doesn't make the 31x9.5 anymore; the 10.5 is the narrowest currently offered.
I see BFG does make the same size 235/75/15 as the Uniroyals I am replacing. They also sell the 31x10.5s for a bit more. So I guess when people want to get the extra inch height you have to also go wider. And the 7" rims handle that without a problem...
