Has anyone swapped out the factory 37-inch KO2s for a true 37x12.5 tire? If so, please post photos and the specs of your setup!

Lite Brite switched to the 37x12.50 Nitto Recon Grapplers, comparisons at ~16:00 minute marker. They have flexed their Bronco Raptor to the max in subsequent videos without any rubs while rock crawling. BTW, they are very impressed with the stock Bronco Raptor, currently it's getting Portals installed. I think they are also sponsored by Nitto.


Also, I think @DesertChief is also running the same Nitto's.

so let's quibble over decimal places. You can read my comments about Kevin's claims.

I just put on Mickey Thompson 37" Baja Boss M/T on Icon Rebound Pro's. I believe these are true 37". Not the best picture but It's in the shop getting all kinds of new stuff installed. JCR roof rack, roof rack side panels, Rotopax, ARB Pro extraction boards, DMOS shovel, Gerber axe, JCR tailgate table, molle panel in trunk area with a basket and a shelf, fire extinguisher roll bar mount, center console molle panel. RTR rock sliders, gerry can and limiting bar. Foutz diff skid plate. ARB Summit bumper, rear bumper, Warn 10-S platinum Zeon, ARB IQ lights, hydraulic jack and roll bar mount, skid plates, diff cover, recovery bag, ground anchor, Portable twin compressor and fog lights. Probably missing few things. I'll post when it's complete.

That's an extensive build list! I can't wait to see it finished. Do you have a trip planned when it gets done?

Stopped by the shop to get a few issues on my ‘75 fixed. So I grabbed a few more photos. Got a good picture of the tires. Measured and they are true.

Those tires look gnarly! I'm anxious to see what your Bronco Raptor looks like after you get everything installed.

Might be a bit longer. Just found out my winch never shipped from the guy on eBay. Have to wait until Wednesday to see if I get my money back. Then order from another party. Also ARB hasn’t shipped the diff cover.

Yokohama makes some excellent sports car tires. These look great, how do you like the ride, noise, and handling compared to the OEM K02's?
Honestly these Yokohama G003 are an excellent tire and priced very competitive.
I ran some 35x12.50 last year on a Tremor and was surprised how quiet they were for such an aggressive tire. Def have a hum compared to the KO2 but for a MT they are manageable and not as loud as most brands like you hear them howling down the highway.

I had 37x12.50 BFG KM3 on my Badlands and they are actual specs 36.5x12.5 and 77 lbs. 18/32 tread

The Yokohama specs are 36.8x13.1 and 76 lbs plus 21/32 so you get a lot more tire for the same weight and it shows. They ride very similar but $100 less per tire, so would def check out in you are in the market.
