Tire recomendation and/or advice
OK, so I ordered the 315/75-16 BFG KM2's about 4 weeks ago with an expected 5 weeks to delivery. I just got a call today saying they are now on further backorder until the end of March. Guess they are damn popular. Well my current tires aren't going to last til the end of March, so I got to do something soon.
I am trying to weigh in all my options here.
1. Go with a different tire. Probably the easiest move.
2. Go with some partially used tires for a few months and wait.
3. Go up a wheel size to a 17 and get the same tires in the 35x12.50's which are not on back order.
4. Other options, which I have no knowledge on at this time.
Right now I have looked for used tires and found a few. I have also checked out some steel 17's which would work. Although I don't know what issues I will encounter if I upgrade to a 17.
So with that being said, what's the collective think? And if you know of any issues with running 17's please tell. Also what is the exact set up I would need to run 17's.
You's guys help is always appreciated.
Black quad cab TRD, moded inside and out, locked up on 35's, capable of getting there and back.
