Need some ideas!

So right now I'm in the process of determining what tires and rims I want after my lift. I'm gonna be running 35s and want to run 17/18s. I really like the BFG MTs but I'm open to new ideas. I dont want to spend a crap load but I'll spend a good amount. So post up pics/ideas/random BS

Yeah thats what I'm thinking is some chrome/polished. I'm pretty set on the KM2s right now but theres sooooo many rim choices.

Personally I would run the Toyo MTs, I really like them in person. I am sure the KM2s are nice, I am just not a fan of BFG. (too many people have them for my tastes)

Idk what kind or style you are looking for but what about these.

Good pick Zach^^^ I really like those a lot too...I liked the chrome ones but man those do look good...and easy to take care of!! I will also say this...if your gonna go w/ black letters out then go w/ Toyos..they have an awesome side wall and the tread is so nice :) If your gonna go white letters out then go KM2s..the KM2 is a really expensive tire along w/ the Toyo but I just think the black side of the KM2s looks pretty boring..there aint much to the side wall at all Just my .02 though!!
