Actually, I'm of the same opinion as wranglertj, but my anality makes me look for a 35 that has a minimum recommended rim width of 8"s.

Offset would be 10+ or greater.

I have a 2014 rubicon with 35"s / 4.11"s and I really like it. Plenty slow off-road due to the rubicon transfer case and plenty of power on the highway. You will need an AEV procal or similar as already stated

Imo 10" is far too wide. 9" would be the absolute max I would go 8.5" is good as is 8". These are my opinions only but I would not go a 10" on a 35 x12.5 size tyre

Hey guys,
I have a 2014 rubicon. Currently have 265's with AEV 2.5" lift. I have been thinking about putting 285/33's on. Would you recommend 315/35's instead? What lift is needed to fit them, given I'm planning on new flares anyway?
Cheers...

35's will fit under stock flares though will require bump stop extensions to avoid fouling on the flares. Install flat flares and no lift required to fit!

Depends on what you want but lower is better stability in my opinion. A mate of mine runs 35's with flat flares and 2.5in AEV lift and it looks just normal!

i run 35/12.5/17 BFG KM2s on +25 Pintler beadlocks and have no rubbing issues except on full stuff as the ARB bar is a little tight on the wing braces. Im running 3.5" of lift with 3" bumps due to high steer.
