Wink specific tire size advice

Hey. I am new to the site but am looking for some advice on tire size. I am driving a 2013 wrangler unlimited with a mopar 2 inch lift (actually got 2.5 inches in front and 2 in back) and a smittybilt XRC front bumper.

I am buying a set of Mickey Thompson baha ATZ P3's this week but am struggling to decide between 33 or 35 inch's (the 35's are LT 315/70R/17 and are actually 34.6 inches). I want the 35's but my main issue is if I would have to make any other modifications to fit them (I realize the problems with gears and plan on changing that down the road). I like the stock fenders and would rather not change them if possible.

Any advice on if I could run the above 35s with my current lift and bumper?

You don't need any further modifications to run 35's. You may even be set with stock gearing depending on what you have. If you're trying to decide between 2 tire sizes go with the bigger one or you'll find yourself wanting to upgrade in a year

I have a 2" lift with 33" tires (285/70/17). I love the way it looks.

Go bigger and don't worry over it. You will worry over it if you don't. Ask jeepers on here how we know.

If you go 35s you'll want 37s. Ask jeepers on here how we know.

It is a 2" spacer lift. I'm not sure what brand it is though. I bought it slightly used (6 month old) and the previous owner had already had a lift installed and 33's put on.
