255/80/17 BFG MT on a 06 Commander with OME HD

Hello, I have an 06 Limited QDII Commander that I have the OME HD kit on. It lifted it about 2,75" in the front and about 1,5" in the rear.

I have noticed the AEV Pintler wheels are on sale and is looking to get these to avoid spacers.

I would really like to put on the 255/80/17 BFG MT tire. Its about 33". Would this be possible with the Pintlers and pinchweld mod ?

This is a mallcrawler.

Ended up ordering AEV pintlers and BFG MT in 255/75/17 in jeep pattern. Looks like the 255/80/17 might be to much for my lift.

They make the BFG MT's in a 255/80???? If so are they the KM2 tread pattern because Im almost positive the only size tire that has the tread pattern as the ones you just installed are the 255/75's

Your original post said you wanted 255/80's but thought they would be to big
