Tires and Lift suggestions

Hey All, I'm new to the forum scene so bear with me. I have a 2010 Jeep Rubicon 4-Door. This is my wife's daily driver, and therefore she calls the Rubi her's! She SERIOUSLY wants it lifted with some larger, tougher tires....Gotta love that woman!!! Anyway, on to my question.... I can do a 2.5" lift on the Rubi which will allow it to still fit in my garage. What would be the best tires to put on the stock rims (Size and brand) that would look good with the lift? Also, what's a good lift (Brand)?

Any help would be appreciated and make the wifey really happy!!

What are the current rim and tire sizes ? I assume it came with 17's and maybe the tires are a 265/70R17 ? something in that range.

I have a 2013 sport with 255/75/17s and I want to upgrade to mud terrains. If I order mud terrains in the exact same size as the original tires I have now, do I need to add a lift? I'm assuming it will be fine if the MUDs are the same exact size?

Been trying to research this and can't find anything! Thanks!

Is this just for looks? Some 2.5" lifts raise higher than 2.5" due to the manufacturers building in extra for added weight of after factory bumpers. Search on the forums and read through any similar posts. You will see...

2.5 is a great starter kit. Your rubi already comes with mono tube shocks and they fair very well. Theres a lot of great kits out there so take your time and choose your poison wisely. Don't skimp out.

Budget Boost (leveling kit)... if your not planning to add aftermarket bumpers/winches...weight. with that said, start doing research for a coil lift if you plan on adding weight.

Since its for your wife, and she uses it daily... i would suggest all terrains since the mt's will take a hit on mpg, and loud. rule of thumb...stay light with tires. an additional 10lbs of weight to ur current setup per wheel will equate to 100lbs in load.

Longevity... look into the toyo at2 (65k, or 50k) or falken wild peaks (50k)

do some research on duratracs, toyo open country at2, hankook dynapro, and cooper discoverer. all these tires are highly reputable in the jk community. good luck
