I'm needing new tires on my 2010. It currently has BFG KO2's on it - 315/70R17 E. A friend of mine pointed out that his F-250 tires (265/7OR17) only cost half mine and are still good for the 1% of the time he's truly off-road. l'm pretty new to Raptors, and this is a very early I model have.

A 265 would look pretty weird on a Raptor. Any variation of 35 or 315 should be considered the minimum. Also that would change the gearing quite a bit, likely suck as much gas riding along at 3K rpm on the hwy as you'd save on those tires. You better prepare for bingo cards and a flame suit...lol

There are cheaper 35" tires out there than KO2s, in some cases quite a bit cheaper.
