Help me pick tires

I've almost got a setup picked out for my new 2 door JK. I've decided on the pictured ProComp rims 16x8. I'm getting a 2" lift and I want a 33" tire. I've been thinking about tires sized about 33"tall and 11"-12.5" wide, like a 285/75/16 or 305/70/16. Post up a picture of yours if you have tires in this range with specs and convince me.

I'm going to say DuraTrac's. I have them on my 2013 Sport here in Germany and they are an awesome Jack-of-all-trades tire. Quiet on the autobahn and yet still chew through piles of snow and mud holes like it's nothing.

Post up pictures of 285/75/16 and 305/70/16 tires on your Jeep with specs to help me decide.

I would go with 305 /70/ 16 33 x 12.2" wide Toyo Open Country M/T they are 10 ply were excellent and quiet on highway. I run 295/70/17 on my jeep very happy with them.

Mine came stock with 32" BFG MT's. They were pretty good tires. Now running 33" Duratracs. Considerably better offroad than before. There are lots of choices out there. My son is running Kellys and loves them.
