275/65/18, 275/7018, or 285/65/18

I'm looking to replace my Duellers but I want to keep my Alt. wheels but don't want to run spacers. I'm thinking about running 285s but many people on the forum seem to be running 275s in either series who want to retain their Sahara wheels. I have a 2.5" coil lift and I do disconnect when wheeling. What size would you guys/gals recommend? This is my DD so as much as I would like to do 35s, I don't was some of the typical draw backs of having them (hard for family to get in, decreased mileage, spacers, tire carrier upgrade, ect).

On my 2013 Sahara, I have 275/70/18 Duratracs. Very happy with them, on ride ride is great, not too much noise, and they are awesome in snow. I do run SpiderTrax spacers with them, which give some extra clearance and gives it a nice stance.

You will have to use wheel spacers if you go to any of the sizes listed with your stock wheels. Some 2.5" lifts require wheels with better backspacing to run with stock wheels additionally.

I've put 33,000 miles on my Kelly 285/65/18 OEM no spacers no lift.

These are Kellys clone of Duratracs. 08JK Sahara DD.

No complaints.

Had to adjust bumpsteer about 1/4 turn for no rub on full lock-to-lock turn.

Never any rub under any conditions.

Awesome. I read a post somewhere that someone was running 285s and had little to no contact (trimmed air damn and/or adjusted bumpsteer). I just wanted to hear from soneone that is currently running that particular size. I'll look into those Kellys since the Duratracs don't run in that size.
