ahhhh, captain bumpstop again....geez
I say put them on there and prove me right, you can run um Its not going to cost a thing to put them on and see is it?
The fact that you say its all about full flex is a bunch of crap. Not everyone wants a crawler man. In fact, 97 percent of the people on this forum are not hardcore anyway. If he wants to do light trail riding and drive it, the distance between the flair and the top of the tire is all he needs to consider.

And what's most disturbing about your claim is that when common convention states you need a certain amount of lift to fit a certain tire, thats because somebody actually tested that combination with a tire that was advertised as 35"...and guess what, that automatically factors in the "true" diameter.
Furthermore, the distance from his fender to the tire in the picture at ride height is irrelevant. What matters is what the distance between the steel of the fender and the tire is at full bump and full flex, based on the bumpstop extensions.
The common minimum for 35s on a TJ is 4" of lift with a 1.25" BL and proper bumpstop extensions. Now before somebody gets there panties in a wad about LCG builds....thats "general" assumptions of stock fenders & proper bumpstop extensions....sure you do all sorts of other fancy stuff....but based on the OP's little 2" lift or whatever is on there...no, 35s ain't gonna just bolt up and go.
OP - read this. Theres more to 35s than just slapping them on and hoping for the best.

|jrussblues||The shock look to be either rancho or skyjacker, there's a possibility he has a budget boost, but I'm not feeling he has enough room to effectively clear that much tire. I do agree with ibuildembig, it doesn't appear stock but not unstock enough.|
|04-27-2012 09:24 PM|
|Ibuildembig||See I disagree, look at the distance from the top of the tire to the bottom of the flare. Looks to be about 5.5-6 inches. Given that the tire will measure 33 or less we can agree that is only 1.5 inches taken off the top when mounted, leaving 4 inches of clearance. I have a stock 02 in my shop right now with 30x9.50s on it that has no where near that much room.|

|Patrick H||Kinda splitting hairs at this point I reckon; either way the 35's won't fit on the OP's Jeep as it sits.|
|04-27-2012 09:18 PM|
|Patrick H||OK. If the tire really is 255mm wide, and the aspect ratio really is 70%, the actual math would be more accurate. Unless there is an inch lost in the bead area.|

30.1 on all the tire calculators I have found
Metric Tire Conversion Calculator
Metric To Inches Tire Size Conversion

14.055, round up 14.1, +17 inches= 31.1 inches.
So, 31.1, actually. Or, 31.055

|Road_House||so if there actually 31s do i still need to upgrade my gears and stuff|
|04-27-2012 07:25 PM|
|jrussblues||Throw on a 4" lift and upgrade your steering and regear...run the 35's|
|04-27-2012 07:09 PM|
|Patrick H||Actually his tires are 31 inches tall, but still..|
|04-27-2012 07:04 PM|
|techflork||it being a rubi only gives you the advantage of not having to do an SYE i believe (don't quote me). But it's still a ton of money and PITA to lift and get 35's under there correctly. I think your axle is okay to but you must change the gearing for sure|

|04-27-2012 06:23 PM|
|Ibuildembig||Id say you can run them based on your pics. Your current tire is 30" and a 35" tire normally measures 33" unless its a swamper.|
|04-27-2012 06:11 PM|
|Road_House||i have a slight lift with new shocks and springs and its a rubicon|

|04-27-2012 05:45 PM|
EDIT: as long as you dont plan on not hitting any bumps or turning faster then 3 MPH.... you need a lift..
your stock tires are 30" tall. 35" require A LOT of work in order to run them. Lift upgraded brakes upgraded steering box and tie rod
