Want 35inch tires to fit my 2013JK..h

Hi all...

As this is my first post I would like to ask the community something they probally been asked over and over and over again. So sorry if this sounds like a broken record here..

I have a 2013 JK Freedom Ed and i want to get 35in tall tires on it, but im not looking to do any major suspension upgrade nor my jeep going to be a hard core mountain climber, it will be primarily an on road with trail running parks. Would like advice on getting a simple lift that i can easily fit those tires with out doing any major surgery on the drive train. I rather stay away from body lifts if possible. Any suggestions on easy lift and tires? Want to keep my stock 17in rims but dont know if I can fit 35 on them...

thanks to all who respond

You really just want a budget boost which is coil spacers and then new shocks or shock extensions to run your factory shocks. 2-2.5" will clear 35's. You can fit the 35's on the stock rims just you're going to need spacers so you don't rub when you turn.

I have seen those on several sites (quadratec being the place i go to a lot since they are near me) but was always concerned on durability about them. What i been looking at are the skyjacker 2.5 budget kit ( Skyjacker 2.5" Standard Lift Kit for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door - Quadratec ) or the rubicon express version ( Rubicon Express 2.5" Budget Boost Suspension System with Twin Tube Shocks for 07-14 JeepĀ® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door - Quadratec ). As for the spacer u mention is that due to the stock rims backspace is not correct to run 35's?

Yes, the stock wheel backspace is not great for anything above the stock tire.

EDIT: If you haven't looked at this thread yet, I highly suggest it: Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

thanks kittyprawn.... i thought that may be an issue and was hoping i could get away from having to get new rims... I know for the smoked/gunmetal grey rims that come with the Freedom Ed i could get something close to them but was hoping i didnt have to buy rims as well. I have wheel spacers on my quad but since i dont drive that every day it didnt bother me. on a jeep that I do drive i would think i be getting some new rims as well considering the rub issue.

Flat fenders and a quality set of wheel spacers.

You won't have to touch your suspension and you get to keep your stock wheels.

Yes on the back spacing. With wheel spacers buy a quality set and torque them down correctly. Lots of people run them and wheel with them. I did the rubicon express 3.5" lift and am happy with it. I saw someone also recommend flat fenders which are a good option as well. I know 14's have the pinch seams already trimmed I don't know about the 13's. Also I would recommend saving to upgrade your tire carrier at some point.

thanks everyone for some of the great ideas... ill look into those spacers and decide if i want to run them or just fork out the cost for new rims. T8er glad to hear you hav ethe rubicon express on you wrangler and ur happy with it. I know skyjacker is the "big" name when it comes to the 4x4 off road world (as is rachero) and ive been looking at the rubicon as its still a budget 2.5 but does have some extra pieces for a bit more wheelin compared to stock. As for the flat fenders msubrave, I actually like the lines on the freedom edition that the front bumpers follow the lines to the front fenders (and when I replace the stock bumper with something nicer i been only looking at the ones that have that similar look to it). I dont want to make too much in changes to the body as I still want to enjoy the way it looks... just want to get a bit of altitude underneath the body.
