What did the overall width end up being?
I haven't measured that. Don't know if it increased or not. Guess I wasn't worried about it since it doesn't matter to me. Anywhere 68" fits, another couple of inch's wouldn't make any difference. I will have to see if I can put a tape on it one of these days and check it out.

My dealer stated when I asked that if I went with bigger tires, NOTHING on the warranty would be voided...so food for thought...I guess it really depends on how they report the issue.

I really like the bfg 32's but wonder about 33's. The KM3s look like the thread depth is not as juicy as other offerings but the km3s review very well.

Still have my OEM's that would likely go on in case of a warranty issue, just in case. ;)
As for the tread depth, they are not a mud tire, regardless of the name. LOL Just going by reviews, I think they are the right choice for hard, rocky trails. No need for macho looking, deep tread. (although that does look better) We will see once I'm able to get out and put some miles on them.

Do you know what’s the number of lbs you don’t want to exceed on tires?

I really don't know if there is a a set weight that you don't want to exceed, but for me, 6-7 lbs heavier than whatever the manufacturer puts on is about as much as I want to add. The KRX looks to be overbuilt enough that it could likely handle most anything that would fit under it, but un-sprung weight is not your friend.

I like the new Hester edition video. He did 35" and a "Tune". He claims it is faster than stock. If true, hmm. Also Vforce John is putting tunes together that seem to be quite strong. Video from M3 mud Mi. or sumthing. Vforce I am a fan of. Been running his tunes for years on Teryx. I like tires as light as can be while keeping durability and performace needed for use. I am still hoping for a Carny in 35". System 3 xtr caught my attention as well.

Just put 35’s on last night System 3’s XCR350’s I’m not liking the look with the all Black wheel for some reason. I don’t know what it is.

I watched the M3 video. For all the ranting and raving they were doing over the tune, it was less than 3/4 second faster 0-60 than the bone stock KRX they also had. Keep in mind it was still in the 10+ second range. On their little short course they have, they were only running about 1 second quicker laps in the tuned rig. To listen to them talk about it during the video, you would think it turned it into a rocket ship, but their testing and timed runs they were making showed different. I personally don't see the value in a tune for these machines. If you want big power you need to wait for the turbo machines to come out.

I agree 100%. It’s just like a car. Bolt ons will get you so far. The dollars spent vs what you receive isn’t worth it at all. Turbos is definitely the way to go.

I agree BUT, 3/4 second to 60 is a very big jump. That represents a considerable HP upgrade. I dunno but I would wager they are pulling another 20hp out of her. I think a guy would most surely notice the change. And if its reducing the bottom lag I would be happy about that. I drive and love diesels because of the torque at low rpm. I love me some torque grunt.

Yea different strokes for different folks. I’d go full turbo before any bolts ons.

Can't disagree with the love of low rpm grunt. That's why I just did this yesterday. My '09 Duramax had 365 HP and 660 lb/ft of torque. This '18 Duramax has 445 HP and 910 lb/ft of torque at 1,600 rpm. :D

So bob did you get your machine out to see how the tires behave yet. I’m in a toss up between the bfgs and the system 350. I did the 350 before and liked them but on the doll head rocks they seamed to have a lot of flex and would chunk the tread.
