Anyone running 35x12.5x15 BFG All terrains on a JK?

I'm about to order these and I think they're going to look awesome but I'm having a really hard time finding pictures of anyone running this set up, plenty of people running 17s or 16s but it's not the same, I want to see how much the side wall buldges or an idea of actual height of these on a JK on the ground.

Post em up if you got em, thanks

Here are some of the pics from today, got them installed but took some time because they rubbed the calipers in the front, not a big deal. Used 3 OE lugs and 2 Gorilla splined lugs on each wheel as sort of a theft deterrent. I also painted the OE center caps satin black and threw them on, I really love how it turned out in the end.

Thanks! Stock suspension at the moment, I have the Teraflex 2.5" BB that needs to go on, I'm going to tweak the rear pinch seem with a big hammer and get a different front bumper.

I've had a few questions come up about my center caps, it's hard to make out in the other pics so I snapped one today while I working on the budget boost. Before I get questions about the lugs, I did that to be some form of loss prevention, don't flame me cause they're black and chrome.

You still liking the BFG's? Just ordered me the same wheels and tires from Discount Tires except I got the Unique 297's instead of Cragars. Did you have any problems with them rubbing on aything when you had stock suspension? Also did you have to run spacers with wheels?

Absolutely still loving the BFGs, been off roading a few times without any glimpse of getting stuck, the tread cleans itself out easily. The tires aren't loud on road either and offer a comfortable daily driver ride imo. I've probably put about 10k miles on them and they're wearing really nicely, seems like they're going to last a long time. I live in Chicago and the winters here can be pretty ing bad and these have handled it all really well.

Please feel free to post a pic of your Jeep up here when you get them on. I didn't have tire rubbing issues anywhere even in the stock suspension but I never really got off road with them. I did have to clearance the calipers slightly in the front because of the wheel weights and the backspacing I chose for my wheels. The calipers offer PLENTY of material that I would never be concerned with the amount I had to clearance.

Congrats and good luck!

edit:
A couple of pictures for good measure, first is on trail 10 at Cliffs Insane Terrain ORP and the second was the morning of last weeks latest snow storm. Both pictures show the treads packed but don't let it fool you - they really handle anything thrown at them very well.

Man am I glad to hear that you are liking this setup. I have been drooling over these pics for a while. I live in Detroit area and we get the same winter BS, which is why I was trying to stay away from the mud terrains. I also love the fact that they are listed as about 55lbs.

You didn't have any balance issues with these?

Damn that looks sweet!!!
