Want to get 35s

I have a jeep wrangler sport. I was looking to get 35 inch tires as well as a 2.5 inch lift. My questions is what does everyone suggest for what are the best tires/lift to get? Any suggestions? Also can you please post pictures and details of what you have if you have the 35 inch tires(brands and all) thanks all!

Start searching/reading. Waaaay more to 35s than fitting tires, and 2.5 inches won't do it if you plan on keeping your rubber from getting eaten up by the fenders

What exactly are your plans for the jeep? 35s are a big change: you're looking at a couple grand (regear, steering, brakes, etc).

My plans are to get 35 inch tires and get an appropriate lift/ whatever is necessary. I am pretty inexperienced and trying to learn from the forum, but still pretty confused.

I went straight from stock to a 4" ORV rugged ridge lift with 35x12.5 Dunlop fierce attitude tires on my 07 jku x. I absolutely love my set up! No rubbing on fenders unless at full flex on the trail

What year is your Jeep? What gearing do you have? Is it stick or auto? In a JK you can do 35s with just a 2.5" lift with wheels with the right backspacing or by using spacers on the stock wheels. As long as you stick to just a 2.5" lift you can get away with putting off other upgrades until later. If you have the 3.21 gears you may want to regear when going to 35s though.

When I do mine next year I'm going with the Teraflex lift and Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs (little less than 35s but close enough).

Just got these 35 inch goodyear duratracs with 16 inch wheels. My lift is a skyjacker 3 inch lift. The duratracs are AMAZING, especially with black rims it looks so nice, and from what ive read and how ive driven with them so far they are awsome.

2012 JKU sport Auto/3.73 with Teraflex 2.5 Coil lift, Exhaust spacers, Bilstein 5100 shocks, MB TKO's 16x8.5 w/4.5 BS, and Goodyear Duratracs 315/70r16 (34.6"). No rubbing in the back and front (removed lower front air dam) and even with disconnected front sway bars. It has great power without regearing.

Excellent questions that need to be answered before anyone can really help the OP.

TJ, YJ, JK, CJ??? What is it?

You could also fill out your profile/jeep garage. We can't even look in there.

I got a 4" Pro Comp Stage 1 lift
Kit and mounted 33x12.50r17's. Well I really regret not getting 35's. I save on gas with the 33's but the 35's would look nicer and fill up the gap. Lesson learned.
