mommymallcrawler I plan to do 33's with a 2.5 sometime soon - will post up pics when I get it all set up. I am just leery of going bigger and not being able to get into the Jeep. But if I find I don't like the 33's, tires are consumables-they will need replaced at some point and I could always do 35's then if I was so inclined. So I have some comfort that it isn't a "permanent" decision - I get to make it all over again in so many miles.

Not all 33's are the same size also goes for 35" tires + weight is different I went down from 35" to 33" for better performance & towing cause I didn't want to regear 33" & 411's work great for my needs & wants

Gdirrty Anyone running Teraflex leveling kit (non coil) with stock 32s and 1.5" wheel spacers to balance the look/stance? I'm thinking of doing this on my 14 JKURX mainly because I think the stance is slightly narrow looking.

I got a white jeep and a 2.5 inch lift and been looking for the right tire to go with it and it seems I might of found it. Where and what did you pay for the tires? Also, did you use spacers?

Hack12 I think 33's look just fine with a 2.5" lift. I just switched from a Teraflex Leveling Kit to a Rubicon Express 2.5" Coil Lift with Bilstein 5100 Shocks.

Here are some pics. What do you guys think?

In the end it's all in what u want to do with your rig. Mine isn't my only vehicle but I go to nm to ski and to the coast a few times a year so it's still a great ride on a road trip.

That looks great!

XPADREX I bought the TF spacers at the same time... I saw some debate as to whether or not they were required... but TF said "yes", so I said "ok".

I wondered if the 1.25 vs 1.5 inch would be an issue... but from what I have read, no. Let's hope not.

Looks matter less than practicality... and a competent balance of performance, capability, and practicality is what I'm after. The 32's got a lot done in Moab, and I reckon more articulation hurts no one.

If you must have clearance at the axles, I get it... ...but short of regearing, I like the way my 3.8 2 door with 3.73 gearing goes down the road with 32's. I might try a slightly larger tire size at replacement time... ...but then again, if I can snag anotner set of new takeoffs right, well... I might never change.

Your going to need spidertrax wheel spacers to run the Rubis with the 2.5 teraflex.
12-19-2013 08:33 PM
lando76 Theres alot more that comes with going to a 35 inch tire besides the lift needed. I myself will probably go with a teraflex performance spring kit with upgraded shocks and 33's as to not create to much wheel well space. When I can pony up all the upgrades needed to run 35's properly without long term damage then I'll make the jump.
