Nitto Terra Grappler

I have a 2014 JKUS with the 17" wheels. I have the Teraflex 2.5 inch spring lift on the way and would like bigger tires. I like my stock wheels and was wondering if these would work on my stock wheels? Thanks again and sorry for being such a newbie...

Should be fine. You will need to run a set of spacers with them tho due to the stock wheel backspacing. I know spidertrac are highly regarded as far as wheel spacers go.

Thanks for the answer. People are worrying me since I have the 2.5 inch lift on the way and only the stock 17" wheels and tires. Apparently its not going to look good until I can afford bigger tires.

Meh in my opinion thats for you to decide. (If it looks good with stock wheels and tires). Don't worry about what other people think. If it works for you then that's great. Personally, I don't think jku's look all that terrible with a little lift and stock tires. But thats me. You could always put the lift on and see what you think. If the tires look to small then go spend the money on bigger ones. If im not mistaken you will need wheel spacers with the tf kit even if your running stock tires with thw stock wheels so it would be a good idea to order some anyhow.

Damn I didn't know I would need spacers with my stock wheels and tires. Have to research this, not getting installed until Christmas time anyways, brother in-law has a lift and air tools at his work. Thanks again.

Since your considering the nitto terra g's... I would advise u to look into the parent company Toyo and look into their Open Country A/T 2...about he same price, but much newer (late 2012) and better tread life. Those terra g's are noisy and don't last long.

We have these tires, they are not that noisy, but don't seem to be great in the greasy snow we just had.
