Opinions on tire size

I've recently installed the Teraflex 3" S/T 3 Kit with Falcon 3.1 shocks on my 2015 JKU and now ready for my wheel and tire purchase. I want to go a bit smaller than 35s. What do you guys recommend? I posted a couple of ideas just to see what you guys think. I'm also going with 18×9 Black Rhino Warlord wheels.

What gears do you have, and do you plan on re-gearing?

3.73. I do plan on regearing to 4.88 or 4.56 once I gather more funds. I'm thinking within the year.

We ran a 315 with 3.73 gears on a 2 door for awhile, it was fine. IMO just depends on what you'll be doing. I prefer a wider footprint off road, so the 315 would be my choice.

Keep in mind those measurements you're looking at won't be how they measure on the Jeep. FWIW we recently did 37x12.5x17 on a 3" Teraflex lift, we went with a smaller 37" though that measures 35.75" on the Jeep.

The tire size that I think most closely resembles your request is a size you didn't list. The 295/70-18 is basically the identical diameter of 35's. It's a great alternative for those that want a similar size to 35's but use 18" wheels.

Thank you for your input guys. Tires and wheels aren't cheap. Gotta get it right the first time. Thanks again
