About to place order for wheels and tires, need a bit of advice please

I'm about to order a full set of 17x8 Black Rock Vipers with tires to go on my as yet unlifted JKU. I have the choice between 285/70/17 Duratracs, or 305/65/17 Falken Wild Peaks. The Falkens are about $15 cheaper.

Usage is almost exclusively on pavement, I will be doing a little wheeling this summer but nothing heavy duty. Obviously the larger, cheaper tire appeals from a looks perspective, but the reputation of the Duratracs attracts me. Will the larger tire cause me problems without a lift or spacers? Any recommendations please?

Get the duratracs. The weight will make it a great dd, and it will look more meaty compared to the wildpeaks. The wildpeaks are pretty cheap so if ur getting the duratracs for $15 more, I'd say all in for the duratracs.
