As some/most of you know the BFG KM2 tires have been dropping some of the more popular bigger sizes for our trucks. The venerable 33" 255/85/r16 tires are no longer available in the KM2. In fact, I just checked Tire Rack and came up with 0 results for that size. There have been a few differing opinions on why these sizes are NLA. Some say it was penny pinchers, some suggest that the KM3 is coming out, and other say it's not a high enough seller anymore since the 17" and 18" wheels are becoming the norm.
I figured Bill Burke would be a good person to get a straight answer. He was unaware about the reduced sizes (he runs the same 255/85 on his D90) and contacted a friend a Michelin. He was told that size is going by the way side and offered some comparable sizes for a 17" wheel, which doesn't really help. It was mentioned that maybe the 34 x 10.5 r16 will be the replacement. However a quick search on Tire Rack doesn't even list a 34" tall tire as an option.
My current set of tires will probably need replacing this Fall. Hopefully by then there's a decent option. I'll keep this post updated with my findings.
