Stock Heritage Edition tire size?

I tried searching but no luck. Does anyone know what the stock Heritage Edition Defender tire model and size are? I assume the wheels are standard 16x6.5 Wolf.

NM - Looks like they are Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 235/85/16

Nice.

I'm trying to decide what tires to go with. Best deal I have found is 5 BFG AT KO2 235/85/16 for $750 shipped on 4wd.com. Those Goodyear are around $1150. I will be using my truck as a second car for around town, and driving on the beach.

You can't buy those Goodyear. That version isn't sold here anymore.

Side note:
Km2s are no longer made in 235

What?!? KM2s aren't available in 235 85 16 anymore? Guess I've been living under a rock, say it ain't so...

Those are KO2 not KM2. You need to call the tire shop, looks like the spare is defective. It doesn't match.

KO2 they still make in 235. Not sure why they canceled the KM2.

I switch from KM2 to more of an Allterrain Coopers, and the noise difference was considerable, just an FYI if you spend most of your time on the road

If you are interested I have NTO set, Wolf wheels with These Goodyear tires. White wheels though, not the green ones.
