1) in these pix is your 2.5" lift on?
2) did you notice lower mpgs when you went with the 275s?

Here are my 18 XD Monsters with Nitto Trail Grapplers 275/70 r18........ 3" lift!

Please do tell
I also saw on another of your posts that you ran them without a lift for some time. Could you expound upon you experience with that: any rubbing other than the expected airdam and sway bar (a jigsaw and two washer fix), did they rub in the fenders on road with a few people or some gear in the back, any rubbing issues on light to moderate trails (relative terms, I know), was the added weight an issue as regards braking and cornering on road, fuel consumption (how much more), etc.?
I'm almost ready to order these in the same size (275/70/18) for an non-lifted 2013 Sahara (at a good price if I order now) - the only other choice available to me right now without locating more arms and legs (I don't have enough) are the BFG T/A KO in 265/65/18 (same price, at the moment).
I had started a thread with these questions but they have yet to be fully answered.

Note that my 275/70r18s measure out at almost 33.5 inches. That is taller then most 33s. Just take the airdam off until you are ready. That's what it rubs on. The rubbing was only one of the reasons I added spacers. I also wanted the clearance to run tire chains in the winter.

|PeteQuad||Me too - I was very surprised to hear the second poster had some rub with a 275 with 2" lift. I was honestly hoping to do something like that size without a lift (and without replacing my sahara rims) before springing for the whole shebang (2.5" lift / 35") a few years down the road. And if I liked it well enough maybe just sticking with it and never doing the lift.|

|SirRyan||This is a thread I wanna watch. I have the stock sahara's and when this rubber goes out, I plan on going bigger, just not sure of the size. I don't really wanna change the rim.|

granted your tires are larger but....
Look the REAL problem is that it seems like MOST tires offered in these sizes are "E" rated and THAT is when the weight goes through the roof.
If DuraTrac made a 33x12x18 that WASN'T an "E" I bet it would be about 47 pounds.....
At least you and I were smart enough NOT to get "E"s

|Reece||I went in green and dumb. The dealer offered me a wheel and tire upgrade on my stock Sport for $200. He gave me a choice of 17's or 18's, both takeoffs. The 18's had better looking rubber so that's what I went with. I wish now I had taken the 17's - same 32" height but cheaper and more options on tire replacement. I may go to a custom wheel and tire combo when the time comes but that's about 40,000 miles away.|

Sorry for leaving out my information, must of gotten lost in the phone upload.
I am running Nitto Terra Grappler 305/60R18s with the stock 18s. I have been more than pleased with the ride quality both on and off road, braking and handling. Really solid setup

So far they have been excellent. The only complaint is they are a little bouncy as the rim is on the narrow side of the E-rated 275 tire's recommended range. But I would expect the same from any tire this size. I'm currently running them at 33 psi.
I was very surprised at how quiet they are given the semi-aggressive tread pattern. No problem in a 6" snow fall we had in May. No problems towing my 7x16 utility trailer. No problems off road so far. We'll see how they do this winter. I usually run studs, but will give these a shot before I change over.

|Grinders Dad||Another thing to consider is a lot of sidewall flex on tall 15"-16" tires with lower air pressure and ran on road , DD use.|

sometimes I don't understand where guys get their info from..
my 275/65-18 (32x11) General Grabbers weigh 44# and cost $185
a 33x12.5x15 General Grabber weighs 52# and cost $162...
so you ADD 8# per corner to save $23 ? you gonna get new wheels for $23 a piece?
