Donít understand why this size isnít more popular. Fits on factory rims. No spacer needed, sits well inside the guards, very small amount of rubbing at flex with 2.5 lift, less rolling resistance, and c load range so a bit softer.

Donít know why my pics are going sideways.
Where did you get this size from? They only list 35x12.5r17 on the Nitto website.

Jeep looks great BTW!

I only ask as I have the 295/70/17 and they do rub in certain conditions. I would like to upgrade to 35 but thought that spacers were required so then decided I would go 37Ē.

If I can run the 35Ē without spacers then that would be my decision made.

Keen to hear your feedback re flexing etc.

Ye like I said there is a small amount of rubbing at full flex. Nothing worth worrying about. They measure just over 34 tall, 11 and half wide. What rims do you have?

Installed some 35" firestone tires that I bought from a friend. They are used ones but still have a decent amount of tread left on them.

Mine are just over 33Ē when new.

Rub the same mainly on front sway bar and inner rear guard at the tub.

I have a rubi with the same wheels as you.

Exactly my friend. I know looks are an individual thing, but the tall narrower tyres with some lift looks awesome as hell in the flesh. Gives it a very clean, neat, and quite a different look. You canít get these tyres in Australia. I imported them from the states. They are also a c load range, just a tad softer ride.

Installed a set of aev geo brackets yo stop the Jeep from changing lanes on its own when over 50km/h. Drives much better but lost heaps of clearance.


Then we took advantage of the nice weather and went door less.
