JK Wheels/Tires on Stock Suspension

New to the forum, but have been reading a lot on here and some awesome information. Wanted to get thoughts on the following:

Jeep Details:

2012 JKU Sport with Max Tow (3.73).

Use:

90% DD, 10% Sand/Offroad. I will be pulling a 16ish foot trailer with a Polaris RZR xp4 so hopefully all said and done under 3k lbs with trailer/equip/RZR. I will never tow trailer loaded on the sand (we always unload and then tow empty trailer to camp site).

I'm looking to keep the jeep mostly stock so was looking at going with the following setup for wheels/tires:

Looking at going with the American Outlaw Bunker wheels and Goodyear DuraTrac tires.

Wheels: 18X8.5 5-127 10

Wheel Details - Discount Tire

Tires: 295-65-18

Tire Details - Discount Tire

I got tire recommendation from sticky thread and it seems the Duratracs are the way to go for my setup.

What I hope to gain from this setup is a beefier looking wheel/tire combo on stock suspension. I want the tires to stick out more and move away from the pizza cutter look. I am also targeting to find the best offroad tire that is still usable on the main roads and not have that loud tire/road noise. The Duratracs seem to fit the bill.

Thoughts?

Everyone I talk to said do a 2" lift, but I really don't want to mess with that stuff right now as I don't know enough about it yet. First Jeep so taking it slow on mods that could cause issues down the road if not done right.

Found basically the same setup I'm looking to go with. Actually found the link through google image search.

Very happy now that I've seen what it will look like without lift.
