Did you notice a weight difference in the tires due to the extra re-enforcement in the runflats?
He didn't go with a 40 aspect, he went with the stock size.

I see where I went wrong, I was looking at the KDW tires and not the KDW2 tires.... It all makes sense now.

sorry for confusion.

They are BF Goodrich KDW2 tires, any pretty much any tire retailer will have access to them as they are BFGoodrich

They don't make them in 275/40/20, only 275/35/20....which is only 27.6" tall.

I thought I read that the srt team tried different tires and had to go with runflats because they had a much stiffer sidewall,, and this helped them in cornering, since the Jeep weighs so much.

If you can get away with non run flats that would be the ticket thou, as runflats are super HEAVY tires! a lot less unsprang weight and rotating mass.

There are several great tires out there besides BFG's. Try Hankook, or Generals.

Discount tires have great prices , and free shipping.
