For instance I think that 15" wheels with 33"s or 35's look good on a two door but look strange on a JKU. That longer body just needs more girth in the wheel wells in my opinion.

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

JedFromAZ OP,

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.

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
I live in Tucson and the stock height wasn't cutting the AZ trails. I figured with 5,000 miles on my stockers I could put on the 2.5" lift and then see if I still needed wheels/tires and, if so, still get some decent money for the stock set. Since the lift, no more fender rubbing in the ruts or over the rocks.

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

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.
Yeah I was joking about the caps and I agree with you about not throwing away perfectly good tires. But hey, maybe I can get somebody to airbrush an aggressive looking sidewall on my SRA's . Hmmm, maybe there's a business model there for Mall-crawler rigs on stock tires.

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.

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.

Hmmm. Ok that looks good to me on the stockers. Making the stock wheels black helps. I don't know whether the TF 2.5" lift would look much taller than that 2" lift or not. Some people say the TF 2.5" with coils will produce 4" at the front without a heavy bumper.

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.
I have the same question. Its the biggest reason my jeep hasnt got its lift yet i dont have the cash at the moment for 5 new tires plus a tire carrier/bumper
