    While waiting to put my geiser's on, I mounted up new 37" ko2's on stock wheels. No mods, no rubbing, bottom perch. Drives fine. Have been in and out of some deep gutters in forward and reverse to see if I could tear off my mud flaps. No luck. The reason being 37" ko2's tape out at just over 35" unmounted. That is a scab with 315 k02's behind my screw (obvioulsy also on bottom perch). Last pic is my unused old 315 spare side by side with a brand new k02 37". Roughly only an inch difference.

    Nothing serious. Just some fast wash board so far.

    If you really compress the front suspension (hitting hard on the bump-stops), you can rip the fender liner out (which can also happen on stock 35s) and possibly crack the front fenders.

    I don't doubt it. But "37" ko2's do fit just fine for city use. Just wanted to dispel older posts to the contrary.

    Just correcting misinformation, and pointing out that 37 bfgs are very small. Haters. ;)

    What is this "city use", you speak of? Real Raptors live in the dirt and only rarely touch pavement or concrete.
