What size tire for 2.5" rancho rockcrawler lift kit

What size tire for 2.5" rancho rockcrawler lift kit.
Just got my first jeep its an 05 SE and plan on starting my first project by installing a 2.5" rancho rockcrawler lift kit. What size tire will be the best choice with this lift. Pics will be great.

I ran 33x12.5 on 15x8 wheels for about three years. Filled out the wheel wells nicely. at full lock, rubbed the lower control arm. I wheeled on the rubicon and it never was a problem for me. I had BGF AT KO....if I had mudders might have been a different story.

You can run whatever you want, there are no rules. If you actually plan on rock crawling, I'd consider other parts.

I agree with Post #4.
I'd scrub the Rancho's and get a OME lift. If you're going to do it, do it with the best. IMO.....

I wouldn't run anything larger than a 32x11.50 for that size lift. 33" tires really should have 4" of clearance if you offroad.
