Can I run?

First of all I wanted to say Hi. This is a great site. I have been doing a lot of reading and it has really helped in my decision to get the JKUR. Picking her up tonight cant wait.

I know this has been beaten to death and I have searched alot. But still not quite sure.

I am looking to change the rubber to the goodyear silent armor on my new 2014 Black JKUR.

I do alot of highway driving but still want to be able to go offroad a bit. These seem like the best tire for me. I want to do this as soon as I pick it up to be able to sell the stock rubber for a good price. However I want to get the rugged ridge 17 x 9 satin black rim just not yet. I need to sell the rims off my old car and clear my garage before I get the new wheels.

I would like to go a little bit bigger than stock if possible.

So I have 2 questions.

Will the stock size tire 255/75/17 fit on the rugged ridge 17 x 9 rim and not look to small?

If not will the 285/70/17 be ok on the stock rubi rim.

I read that on the sticky it should fit but MAY have some issues. Just wondering if anyone has some real world experience.

Thanks in advance.

every body has different tastes but stock tires on 17x9 rims looks funny. yes you can run 285/79-17 on stock rims. I am.

great thanks for the reply.

I love your setup very nicely done.

Do you think the 285"s would be big enough for the 17x9.
