Cooper STT pros 295 vs 305

Hi All

I am replacing my tires with the cooper STT pros. Can someone explain the benefit to using a 295 vs 305? It seems like such a small difference to me (33's vs 34's?).

I do not have a lift on my jeep (2015 JKU) but have changed the stock bumper to the Renegade Recovery bumper. Ive been assured that I will not need spacers and there will be no rubbing but frankly I am not sure how trustworthy the advice is since in the end this guy just wants to sell me tires.

Im supposed to go tomorrow to make a decision. If I do, they can be changed in a hour. Otherwise I will have to wait 10 days until the guy gets back from vacation. (waiting for new mods is torture, amiright?!)

Any help is greatly appreciated!

You'll definitely need spacers. Probably a leveling kit at the very least, too, with 305's.
I think I'd give my money to someone more helpful and not just out to make a buck.

Let me clarify that. If you're running the factory wheels, you will more than likely need wheel spacers with either tire.
Also, if the bumper weighs a lot, you will probably need a leveling kit with either of the two tires, but most definitely will with the 305's.

Running 295/70/18 Grabber X3's on her Rubicon which are 35.4" tall. Also running a TF leveling kit and 1.5" spacers. I had to trim the airdam to clear them on the front.

Thanks guys for replying! I appreciate your advice. I think the issue has changed. I decided to lift the jeep. Or at least thats the plan. Talking to the guy Friday. If I go with the 2 1/2 inch lift I believe I will most definitely need spacers and a leveling kit. Both bumpers are really heavy. I guess at this point Im more focused on the 305's vs the 315's Ill probably go 305's. But the guy is suggesting a different tire. I trust his advice because everyone who has used him says hes great. Trustworthy. But everyone who has the coopers speaking highly of them. Hes suggesting the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I feel like a need a degree in Jeeps just to understand everything!
Thanks again all
