You bought 29/30's ? That's smaller then stock
That would look really odd with 2.5"

Yeah, 30" would be too small on a jk with a 2.5" lift...smallest i'd run would be 33's

that being said, i dont think your gf/wife will appreciate being called a wench. Going with a winch, however, you should look into spacers up front or other springs to compensate for the weight. You should also look into a new battery such as a Diehard P4 in order to maintain starting power after winching.

good luck

Fwiw a 33" will fit without a lift. Off road you would benefit with a small lift or leveling kit.
Better yet .... Trim the flares

What kind of muddin are we talking about? I wouldnt run that new of a rig in the mud Im picturing. If you have room to park it, find another 4wd to make a mudder out of. You could pick up a lifted XJ for what a nice set of tires will cost you. Weld the rear end, put a lunchbox locker in the front end and find some boggers on craigslist...

This is the shallow end of this field.. The white yota is on 38s and the yota trying to pull him out is on 35" race cut boggers with 400hp and couldnt budge him with like a 60-80' run on the strap. Is this the kind of muddin your talking about? Cause your resale is gonna drop quick if it is.lol

Are you talking about stock tire size??? If so, thats false...the 2012 sport with a 16" wheel comes with 225/75r16's which would be about a 29.5" tire.
