Tires for Jeep

Hi

I'm putting new tires on my 2015 JKU, I have a 2.5" lift and currently running Bridgestone duelers 285/70/17. What is the largest tire I can put on without new rims? The jeep is mostly used as a daily driver, 20 miles on the highway each way to/from work, so I'll probably stay with the same size put am curious as to how large I could go. Im looking for a more aggressive looking tire so I'm thinking to go with the BFG KO2 and was also wondering if I need to be concerned the speed and load rating and how will these be from a noise factor

Thanks,

Mick

Which 2.5" lift? Need to know which bump stops you have.

You should be able to fit the 285/75r17 with that setup. They are good with factory wheels and you just need 1.25 or 1.5" wheel spacers to clear the sway bar. As long as you have the typical 2" bump stops, those tires would work. BFG's or AT3W's would be a good choice. They are closer to 35's than the 33's you have...
