Nitto tires

Looking at putting Nitto Trail Grapplers on my 2011 sahara unlimited. Size is something of an issue. i do not have a lift, planning on one in the future. I do have Rockstar rims with some offset. My size choices are 275/70R18
285/65R18 - 295/70R18 or 35x12.50R18. I dont want to run into scrubbing issues. Which one would you go with? Thank you all for your help. I am trying to get them today as they are having a buy two get two deal going on.

Greg

If you trim your finders or have flat stile finders you shuld be able to run 35's with no issues

Not online unfortunately, local tire dealer is running it. Ed-de - I have stock fenders, and I am afraid with the offset of my rims, running the 35's would really be an issue. Wish I had the money to lift it right now. Think I am going to go with the 275/70R18. All these numbers are so confusing!

Really want the 295's! Going to talk to the manager tomorrow who has a 2011 Jeep just like mine, he told me on the phone he was running the 35's. I want to see that!

Got the new tires today! Went with the 285/65R18. I love them, they are not that loud when driving. Yet you know you have some fierce rubber under you!

Btw if you ever go bigger than a 33 with an auto u will have to regear or you will lose your over drive. I just down sized from a 35x12.50x18 to 33x10.50x18 because of it. You can run a 35 with 2.5 lift witch is what I have on my JK but there's is not much room for any flex so with that said to run 35s you need a 4" lift and 5:13 gears for an auto and 4:88 for manuals I did my research for best results and came up with that.
