Street tires


Recommended Posts

Check the weight of the tire vs stock heavier rotating weight equals lower top speed, more time in low range and clutch work but they look cool. Check out the builds section🙂.

I have KM3's on 2 vehicles (Raptor & CJ) and really like them, I would have put them on the defender but due to availability at the time I went with 30x10x14 maxxis liberty's, personally I prefer the 30" size, I haven't experienced any affects to performance, top speed, no low gear warnings coming up in the display, etc. Certainly Newtons second law of motion applies here but you're just not adding any considerable weight or rolling resistance, especially if your staying with the 27x11x14's

I have 30x10x14 Tusk Terrabite all around.  I should say i 'ordered' 30x10x14 and they are marked 30x10x14, but they run small- actual height is 28 1/4" -28 3/8".  I see nor feel no difference vs. stock in performance, but have yet to GPS top speed.  They have a good all around tread and run down hard surfaces much better than stock.  I would have preferred a true 30" tire, I guess if that was a Tusk, I should have ordered the 32"

No, I have 30’s with no lift and there’s plenty of clearance

I’m not 100% sure, I don’t have fender flares on mine and any of the defenders I’ve installed fender flares on have had stock tires. 
If the fender flare doesn’t extend past the stock wheel well then I would guess they shouldn’t interfere with the tires, but I don’t want to give any miss information without actually having done it.

Lol! I’m not that computer savvy to say the least. Are they just saying they won’t fit because there not the standard stock size?

Probably that and/or they may not fit the stock wheels, the stock wheels are different width front and back, I mounted my 30’s on raceline wheels

They should fit the rim no problem, I have the full fender flares and no problem, the odd time when you are turning sharply and are crossing deep ruts you may hear a very short rub but no sign or damage. Details are in this thread if you want to check it out.2019 DEFENDER XT HD 10 CAB LIFT AND 30" TIRES 🙂

are you talking about the stock rims that came on it that should work or like what djla was talking about with buying different rims so the same tire would fit front and back? because like he said above I'd have to buy 2 different set of tires for the stock rims. I couldn't open that link so that's why I'm  asking so many questions before i pull the trigger on buying tires.
