Abe there are so many tire threads on this forum I wouldn't where know to begin. I am getting the 4x4 conversion so I hope to end up with something like h2otraveller somewhere on this thread

just search around a little bit until you find what you are looking for

No, no rubbing or any issues, still thrilled with them. Speedometer is off by about 10%.

245/70/17 bfg ko2's with new moto metal 970 wheels 17x8 et42 and I had to trim the back pinch weld about 1.5"'s and about 6-8"'s up. Also trimmed about 2"'s off the botttom plastic bumper in front. Just cut it at a 45 degree angle. Can't even tell. Plenty of clearance in back at the strut. I ordered them at discount tire but check out this site.

2015, I don't believe that any of the years are different in respect to tire clearance so far.

They look awesome. I always ran very aggressive treads on my Bronco, the noise is well worth the traction when needed imho, and I got very used to the hum. My speedometer is off about 10% which makes it easy to mentally adjust for - 30 is really 33, 40 is really 44, etc.
