Hey All - Hope you are having a great holiday!
I need some advice - Please
I need to replace the sorry
Goodyear Fortera's that Jeep mated with this great machine! Why they would put such a lousy tire on the XK is just beyond me
After researching this forum and the internet I am pretty set on purchasing BFG All-Terrain T/A KO 245/70 - 17
tires. - which from everything I read on this forum will work just fine without lifting the XK.
I went to my local tire shop today - (which is where I always purchase my tires) and inquired about the BFG AT T/A KO and they were a bit perplexed as to why I would want to put such a tire on this Jeep. I expalined that it IS
Trail Rated AND I do go off road trail riding a good bit. I also explained that I like the look of the BFG tires.
The reason they are questioning my decision is because ,they claim, this tire (BGF A/T T/A KO 245/70-17) is a 10 ply tire and will provide an extreemly rough ride.
My Question 1- Does anyone know the specs for this tire - meaning is it 10 ply or 4 ply?
My Question 2 - For those who are running this tire - what is the ride quality? I understand that there will be a bit more road noise but also (from what I read) is not very bad.
I appreciate your feedback.
