Need help determining tire size with lift

Hey guys so I got my jeep last may and have been saving up some money for tires and a lift. I only plan to do some light off roading, so I will mainly be on the street, maybe try a couple easy trails. I have already bought a 2.5 inch entry level rough country suspension lift and I'm looking at the BFGoodrich a/t ko2's 35/12.5/17 or 18 depending on if I can find a good deal on tire/wheels if I cant I will be going with the 18 inch rims as that is my stock rim. would I get any rubbing with those tires on that lift? or any other suggestions for tires/ lift setups

If you are going to reuse your oem wheels, you will need wheel spacers. If your planning to get aftermarket wheels, you will need 4.5 backspacing or less.

Sagging coils, broken tabs on welds, premature bushing wear, bad shocks... it can be nothing or a combination of many things. RC is a hit/miss but warranty like most other companies are great.
