BFG KM2 on stock wheels

Does anyone have pics of the new BFG Mud-Terrain KM2s on a stock ranger or a Ranger with just a torsion twist? I have a stock 2005 FX4 and I want to either put BFG A/Ts or KM2s on it. I'm worried it would look weird to have KM2s without at least 4" of lift. Thanks!

If I went with BFG KM2s, I'd either run 255/70R16s with no lift, or 265/75R16s with a torsion twist.

If I went with BFG A/Ts, I'd have 3 sizes to choose from: 255/70R16, 265/70/R16, or 265/75/R16.
If I had to choose right now, I'd do a small torsion twist w/ 265/70R16 A/Ts.

You can fit 31's or 32's on there with a tbar crank.

And WTF is with the weird tire sizes above? LOL

They'll fit fine. I'm running 31s on mine, 1" torsion crank there abouts. If you have 4.10s, you'll be thankful in the long run for having the 32s (265/75R16) on it because it will drive nicer on the highway.

Sorry. When you have 16" rims, the tires sizes are usually metric:
255/70R16 = 30.2" (30s / stock size on my FX4)
265/70/R16 = 30.7" (31s)
265/75/R16 = 31.7 (32s)

That looks great! You say those are 31s, I'm guessing 31x10.50x15s????
FYI, being an FX4, my truck does have 4.10 gears.

Anyone else have pics of the KM2s on factory wheels?

I have a 3" BL with tbar cranked and I'm sporting 33" KM2's! I had 31" A/T's prior to the BL. I'm soooo loving the look now!

I would have some but I swapped the tires on to another set of wheels from my previous Ranger when the truck was 2 days old (to me), that pic of it parked on the gravel pile was of my truck at 3 days old (to me). I sold the factory tires/wheels asap to recoup the money spent on the KM2s. I never did like those Y-spoke wheels none, especially on a dark truck. LR
