    I have stock 255/55/R19 on my 2011.
    I did want to install some BFG T/A KO2 but I don't see them in 19"
    What are other good tires that are close to the T/A KO2?

    I don't drive highway that much, mostly use the track for winter here in Minnasota (snow and ice) but if the weather is nasty, I don't "need" to drive anywhere.

    Cheers.

    Closest options are Aturro Trail Blade MT's or Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs

    And... sadly that’s the whole list.

    And none are sturdy, e rated tires. 18" wheels is one of the few must do mods for an LR4 to make sense for me.

    Continental Terrain Contact. Just went to them from the Duratracs. Quieter. Have not had them long enough out on the farm to give any country road comparison.

    Rookie tire question. I would like to have beefier tires (mostly for looks). So if that the same size or do I need to look for a different set of number.

    Looks like a solid tire.

    255/60r19 is the biggest for 19" tires, otherwise look into 18''s or 20's

    There is another thread that lists the General Grabber X3 in 255/55/19. I believe someone was considering having them shipped to the USA as they were not available in the states.

    running Atturo MTRs now... Very loud - like the tire...
    cost effective when I purchased ~Dec 2017 ~$600 installed - current price not bad either ~$160 each
    have since worn really un-even but I blame myself for trips from SoCal to Jackson Hole and back via large ~3000mi circle and not redoing balance afterwards.
    <rant>
    pretty bad wear now as well as barely replaced my lower front controls after that trip around March 125000 miles - only ~30k too late... Rear lowers next maybe some uppers and some Front Air Struts... or get rid of the truck!?!
    Stupid Purge Valve went bad in Feb $200 part and is just a plastic POS connected near tank... geez... Need Non-OEM/aftermarket parts!
    </rant>

    LTZ's were always pretty reliable but were prone to sidewall damage really easy...
    Great price on them here currently: Walmart of all Places ~ $120 Each
    (might buy a set of these .. good price)
