mostly road, mild off road in near future. plan to install 285/70/17's when stock tires get down far enough. we do plan a trip to high country around Silverton area next summer.

kjeeper10 Really depends on the tire you are going with.
Is the jeep going to be mostly street or off road?

I'd go with 8" tires...they're better suited to tires up to 12.5" wide, which is as wide as you're likely to go.
