Default 275/70/17 bfg k02

All the threads on 275's are 5+ years old so I figgered I'd start a new one.
Does any one else run these in this size?
Are you happy? Any regrets on the extra weight and stiffness with the E rated tire (55.31 lb vs. 45.17 lb.!)?
My last two sets have been BFG KO 265/70/17 C-rated and I've been happy, but wouldn't mind going up to the largest size that'll fit underneath, so I'm considering the 275's.

Any feedback anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. Will be mounted on stock wheels, I'll have 2-3' lift, Shrockworks front bumper, new UCA's so no rubbing issues anticipated.

I have been running this size (also load range E) for 3 1/2 years and 45,000 miles. I have very even wear with 35 psi and the tread still looks good. I have done a few off road trips and have been happy with them as an all terrain tire. The ride is not any different then the GY silent armors I had previously (I believe those were load range D).

My only real gripe with them is in the rain. I do not feel nearly as secure in the rain compared to the GY SA. Both braking and grip in turns to me are much lower. Considering how little it rain in SoCal it has not been a major concern but I do slow down for sweeping freeway transitions much more now.
