Picked-up my ZR2 today. It’s awesome. Have already added mods: gorhino running boards, 35” BFG KM3 (no rubbing.) This truck is awesome.

Are those the RB20 running boards? If so, they are on backwards. The cut outs point to the front of the truck and the logo is towards the rear.

Literally everyone who has attempted 35" says there is rubbing. What makes your setup different?

FYI to everyone that got their Z truck without rear wheel liners there is a liner that looks great and goes on in 15 minutes. I put these on today and they look great. I will let GM put the originals on when they come in---someday. https://rcagarage.com/?s=79061. Like 5 days from order to receiving and total costs was $86+- including shipping. Just sayin

Any plans on changing the gearing? Are you noticing any fuel efficiency difference?

Are the BFGs slightly more narrow than the average 35x12.50?

Looks great! I hear that the BFG's aren't a true 35. I think they measure out to more of a 34.5'' and maybe that's why they clear?

Haven’t driven it long enough to notice but I’m sure there will be. I’ve run KO2 on the last 2 trucks I’ve had, and they are very smooth and quiet. I expected some roar from these- not there. The dealer did say that the noise deadening is much better on the 2022 models. It runs very quiet.

Thanks J your the first I have seen post pics and talk true about the 35's . I heard you could go with 35x11.50's without a problem also. Still waiting on my truck.

If 35x12.5 KM3 fits then a 295/70 KM3 should fit too. The 295/70 is 34.3 diameter and 11.8" width vs 34.5 and 12.5". I think I will be perfectly happy with the look of a 295/70.
