If you cared so much about gas milage than you should have gotten a prius.... oops sorry wrong thread. If you cared so much about looks then you should have gotten a BMW.
My take on it is function before fashion. Do the lift to meet your requirements, to hell with looks. My mommy says im very handome... but my wife thinks im nutz. And my jeep thinks I secretly want to crash it so I can justify upgrades.

Here's my wife's 2013 Sahara with a newly installed Rancho 2" Sport Lift. Actual lift was 2.25".

|HOOCBB||All of the above stock tire pics appear to be 255s...anyone have pics of the lowly 225s with a 2.5" lift?|

I have a JKU with a TF 2.5 coil lift with a set of Bilsteins paired and I'm still rocking some stock 32s. Don't forget if you lift your JK and disconnect your front sway bar to purchase brake line extenders or new brake lines. Here's a pic of my JKU on the Broken Arrow Trail, Sedona, AZ with the sway bar disconnected. So far my JKU has gone everywhere I wanted it to go without any damage after the lift was installed.

I'm keeping it the way it is as I don't care how it looks at the mall.

Actually I think if I go back to the Uwharrie I'll probably tear the sidewall on at least one of my SRA's so I can justify new shoes There was some nice sharp rocks there along with branches poking out on the trail.

As for the "cap" idea...IF you can find a tire center that does it on tires this small, I'm not sure whether it's cost effective. The other issue that you will face is (I'm pretty sure about this one in Virginia) you CAN'T run caps on front tires. So, you're back to square one, having to decide if you want to toss perfectly good tires to get that more aggressive stance.

|Goldrif||alright, nice, but who has the stock 16 inch wheels? anyone?|

Ok based on the previous two posts that's kinda what I expected. The 2.5" lift with the SRA's looks kinda dorky (no offense) but with the KM2's it looks acceptable. The tire size doesn't seem to make as much of a visual difference here as the aggessive vs. street look of the tire itself.
Hmmm. I'll have to think about if it would bug me too much... They used to "cap" truck tires... maybe I can get an aggressive tread capped on my SRA's

TF 2.5" with stock rims/tires
I have a Teraflex 2.5" Lift with stock rims/tires (32"). I just can't see myself tossing perfectly good tires with less than 7K miles on them. Maybe next year I'll go for the 35s But for now, I don't think that it looks too gappy.

Here is a stock Rubicon (BFG LT255/75R17) with 2" Lift. It was a combo of Mopar and Fox Shocks.

Pictures of Lift with Stock Wheels/Tires
I have a mostly stock 2012 JKU Sport. Still have plenty of life on the Goodyear SRA's after a couple of 5 wheel rotations I'm only at 17k.
Last time I went to the Uwharrie I was dragging the stock skid plates over nearly everything so I know I need a lift before I go back but I hate to waste money so I want to wait for my stockers to wear out before replacing them.
I plan on installing a Terraflex 2.5" coil lift next month but I don't want my Jeep to look comical with the lift and small(ish) A/T tires.
Does anyone have pictures of their Jeep on stock wheels/tires with a 2.5" or equivalent lift?
I searched for such a thread and couldn't find any.
