Just bought a '13 JKU Freedom Edition.
Decided to keep the 17" rims that came with the Oscar Mike edition and upgraded the tires today to 285/70/R17, which I was told by Discount Tire is equivalent to a 33".
I was expecting them to stick out an inch or more from the fenders for a wider looking stance. I assumed they would because my hubby has a '10 JK with 31" tires and 17" after market rims and they do stick out more.
So, I'm a bit disappointed in how they look now. I'm a Jeep Newb and feeling torn as to how to get the look I want.
I would like to do a small 1-2" lift to give it a little more height. I don't want it to be much higher because I think 33" tires look silly with too much wheel well space above the tire. That being said...I'd like to ask for your advice.
What are pros/cons to adding wheel spacers to give the tires a wider stance?
I thought about going with JKS ACOS for an adjustable spacer lift, but when I look on their website I only see options up to '12 for JKU. Have any of you found JKS ACOS that work for '13 JKUs?
I could do a 2 1/2 inch Teraflex suspension lift, but then I feel like that will give too much height. Any thoughts or suggestions I'm open to hearing from you.
