2.5 OME and 285's

have an 06 and still depating on a lift. if i run a 2.5 in OME lift and a 1 in body lift could i get away with 285x75x16 and a set of 16x8's i had 285's on my old blazer and liked that size tire and think it would look nice on my jeep.

if any has pics of jeeps with 285's please post.

your running 3.5 inches of lift so you will have plenty of clearance for those 285's...i believe simple scout on this forum ran 285's with just a 2 inch BB...here is a link to a pic of simple scouts with a 2" BB and the 285's...this is the exact tire size and wheel size that you are talkin about...only difference is that you would have 1.5" more clearance since you are running 3.5" lift and he is only running a 2" BB

Not at work I don't. I do at home though. I'll post one up early this afternoon (after lunch) for you. You want just a poser shot right? So you can see the lift from the front?
