Wow. Lots of great information from everyone. Thank you all. With all the information that has been offered, I seem to be leaning towards the KO2s. (I currently have the GY Duratracs and have zero complaints). It would seem that a lot of people really like their BFG KO2s. Which brings me to this question. Tire size. 265/65 18 vs 285/60 18.
Please reference the attached file.
Thank you all in advance.

@Dean: When in doubt go with the narrower tire. Also check out the Falken AT/3W

***UPDATE***

I ended up getting the Compomotive 18” wheels with the black finish and the matching lug nuts. To finish off the look I went to Amazon to source the center cap, again in black, with the LR logo. I wrapped the new wheels with BF Goodrich KO2 All Terrain tires. No tire rubbing. Please note that I have a Tactical 4X4 front bumper. Not sure if that made a difference “rub” or “no rub” outcome.

I could not be happier with the new setup. Spent a few days up in the Lake Arrowhead area over the Fourth of July. My launch point there was the Pinnacle OHV Staging area on Highway 173 north of Lake Arrowhead. I had an absolute blast. The tires never let me down. Especially on some very ify trails (steep incline, large rocks) where I was wondering if I was getting in over my head. I can definitely see why BF Goodrich AT tires are consistently rated at the top of any list. It’s a very good tire.

To everyone that offered their two cents, THANK YOU.
