    2" Mopar lift, Mopar wheels 17x8.5, rides great , drives great, very quiet, took very little weight to balance any of them.

    Still have 8th gear @55mph on the uncorrected speedometer

    ETA: tire wheel combined weight is 98.6lbs (no fever) and the original set is 86.4lbs

    How do the Klevers handle in the rain? I’ve been kicking around the idea of picking up a set for the price and the fact that I won’t be wheeling my JT as much as my TJ.

    I can’t justify spending too much money on a premium tire like BFGs when it won’t be spending much time off of paved roads.

    They perform great. Excellent traction and very quiet in both wet and dry conditions. Totally exceeding expectations.

    Nice! That’s what I like to hear.

    I was just curious since the 35x10.50r17 weigh 67lbs each so if you don't mind a huge jump in mpg loss and acceleration/braking. My stock 245/75R17 Bridgestone tires weigh 38lbs.

    Oh yeah, well, MPG loss is just part of the expectation I have when dealing with a Jeep. My TJ only gets about 10-12 mpg, so if I can stay above that I’ll be okay lol

    Anything in the 60's is pretty damned light for a 35" tire.

    You are comparing P metric car tires, with LT rated all terrains. Not even close to the same thing.

    I know. I've had heavy LT tires on 2 of my Wranglers. On the '15 JK I had the 315/70R17 KO2 C rated which weighed the same as the E rated (65lbs) so going to a 67lb wouldn't be a big deal hahaha. How do you like yours?
