Without any of the lifts, would it still be possible to fit 70's? Also, I was quoted as a little under $900 for a set of four. How does that compare to your setup?

As far as the tread goes, it seems super aggressive (light truck tire after all), but what other tires offer a tread/setup as close to this? I have no clue what other brands have options like this, and I would love to compare all my choices.
tirerack.com has the KO2s on sale for $187ea (from $218.97). You have to add shipping. My price for just the tires from the local tire shop was within a couple of dollars each. $900, is $225 each. You could probably get your dealer to knock a few dollars off. Keep in mind that there is a lot of add-ons for mount, balance, alignment, etc.

Keep in mind the above is for 245/70R17 which are load range E. 245/65/R17 are about $20 less, each.

My limited experience, and reports from others, have 245/70s fitting with no interference/rubbing on the Trailhawk.

I will check out tirerack.com. I was shopping around, and I am glad I got the quote before moving forward. A few extra bucks saved on tires can go to lifts, or racks, or even lights! I even know a few places around me that will price match for competitors on tires, maybe I use this to get a little wiggle room on cost. I am due for a new pair soon, my Firestone A/Ts are a little on the low side for tread.

I did have roughly under 900 for the tires, I mean to be safe without the lift you would have to do 245/65 without lift should rub but you would have to get trail hawk arms in the rear in you don't own one.

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
