Ok - I'll try asking here too. Those looks like 245/65/R17 K02's

Those are gonna fit on a badlands with no rubbing? The guy that did this install seems to think so (according to that article).

I just put a set of 235 65 R18 on my BS from the stock 225 60 R18 and think it’s a great match! Not to much bigger (and didn’t want the overly fat look) but think it’s just what it needed to give it a touch of braun and get rid of the overly “skinny” look of the stock tires.
I almost can’t help wanting to add a 1” lift just to top it off.

We’re you able to make a deal with tire company that installed, for a credit for the 225 stock tire?

Discount Tire was going to give me $60 each but I went with my Ford dealer who beat Discount Tires price by about $200 so I went with them and decided to sell the tires on my own.

Thanks! I was hoping to swap or see if local tire or dealer would deal as I don’t have time to sell myself.

Yea my dealer had no interest in giving me any sort of credit. I figure I can sell a set for $400 pretty easy - just a question of how long they'll have to sit in my garage before someone that needs that exact size finds my FB or craigslist listing I guess.
