35's on 15" Wheel Thoughts

Hi everyone. Looking for thoughts on what 35" tires to run on 15's. Jeep has a 4" lift now. Thoughts and opinions needed. Thank you.

I've been happy with my 35" Goodyear MT/R Kevlar.

Thank you for your thoughts and pics. Helps put a visual on it. It looks pretty sharp with 35's. 37's seem a touch to big for what I'm thinking. I'll post pic after wheels and tires are on. lol Just bought the jeep and the guy took wheels and tires off so it's running stock......with lift............we know what that looks like. lol

You may need a 1" BL to clear 35's


35x15x12.50 BFG KM2's

What driving do you do most? Is this a DD that only sees occasional trails? Or is it a weekend toy that only sees pavement to and from the trail? I'd get completely different tires depending on the answer to those questions. Also what type of terrain you wheel in. If it's thick mud, or rock gardens or if you play a lot on the slick rock in Moab, etc.

Are you running beadlocks on your trailer, but not your rig ?

After looking into it, I think I'm going to run 32's. I'm worried about clearance of bumper with 35's. Thoughts? This is my jeep but the guy took off wheels and tires. It's got stock and looks hideous.

Axles, steering, and brakes are stock to my knowledge. Just suspension modes.

Yes. I wanted the low weight of that setup for the trailer. I'm saving for the 17" version for my Jeep.

You wont be happy with 32's. I would get atleast 33's. I'm running 35's and love them. A 1'' body lift would be nice but for no my 4'' suspension is working OK. Goodyear Kevlars FTW!

At least you've got a plan I thought you might have picked the trailer up with the wheels on it already. Regardless, it's a sweet looking setup.

How would a 35 hit your bumper?

35" BFG KM2s on Black Rock 909 15" wheels. Perfectly happy with them. I do have a 1.25" body lift on it as well.

33's look best to me. You'll enjoy your 32's :-) not much of a difference and better for your axles etc. I went from 36's to 33's and gained so much more. Much happier with that decision.
