Hi everybody. My name is "Y" and I'm a Jeep-a-holic

Just got my first jeep in aug. and have done a inexpensive 2" body lift and would like to do a 2-3" sus, lift come spring. I really like the way jeeps look with tall skinny tires(no wider than10.5) but at least35's or 37's, anybody have some advice ? By and by , the purpose of the tires would be great performance in snow and ice but also for all year use for trail and general off-road use. I like hills!

Welcome! There are lots of threads on lifts. I'd recommend doing some research, narrow it down, and then fire off some more specific questions. Cant' really recommend anything, especially without knowing what Jeep you have.

10.5" width wold be a 265 series tire. That's easy to find in 31" height, might be harder in 37. Tires are getting HUGE these days.

My first suggestion? Get the catalogs and leaf through them. I always dog-ear the pages of things I really want. Quadratec, JCW and 4wd all have good ones. You can buy them at a newsstand or get them free, if you're patient.

Ya I had those 34 X 9.50 swamper tires. they were great tires for mud or anything else off road but they were the noisiest tire I have ever heard and I only got about 3,000 miles on them ( mostly street)and they were almost bald. And these were on a YJ.

thanks for the feedback Donn and So-Co. I guess I just have to keep searching for my dream tire.They don't have to be super agressive but great in snow and ice and on the trail. I'll update once I've found them.
