235s on 2.5 inch lift?

I currently have no lift and I'm running 265s I was thinking of getting a lift preferable a spring lift not bb ....so the smallest springs that I can find are 2.5 inch lift for 199.99 once I wear out my 265s I have a new set of 235s with mud grips that are nice and I don't want to go to waist so the question here is would it look bad to have a 2.5 inch lift and run 235s???

Why get a lift if you are going to run smaller tires? Save your money.

Because it would look nice with my 265s but the downside to it is I have those 235s.....and I'm not gonna waist money on another set....I was just wandering how retarded it would look with 235s?

I have that set up at the moment because when i got my wrangler my suspension was shot so i put a 2.5 lift on it but I had already got a set of 235s put on so im waiting until they wear out to move up. It looks fine if you ask me though.

I'll work just fine though the look might be something you'll have get used to. Since you don't need that lift for the 235s, but you found a great deal on a lift, buy the lift and store it till the 235s wear out and replace with larger tires. That way you install the lift when you get larger tires.

I'm thinking of putting the 235s on and wearing them out them maybe buy a lift then put my 265s on?

Why don't you just sell the 235s and put the money towards a new set of 265s?

I don't know for sure because if gas money ever gets tight I might need to keep them they are also pretty much new mud grips

Without the aspect ratio the width really doesn't mean much, and it has zero to do with overall diameter or filling the wheel well.

235mm is 9.25". That's the width, so what's the aspect ratio of the tire in question? Are they both 65? Is one 75 and the other is 65? These things make a fairly big difference in the conversation for anyone who understands metric tire sizing.

Totally retarded in my opinion. But who the hell am I. I want to go up 2.5", but I only have 31's so I'm hesitant. I think what I'm gonna do is go ahead and do the 2.5" susp lift, ride the 31's till they wear out, then get some 32's and add a 1.25"BL.
