Will 35/12.50-17 fit with a 2.5" Lift Kit?

Will 35/12.50-17 Tires fit on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a Pro Comp 2.5" Lift Kit?

I wanted to upgrade my stock wheels and tires to something larger that will fit with a 2.5" lift kit. This Jeep will be for DD and moderate 4WD roads/trails. I want to make sure the tires will clear the fender flares, etc... If these tires are not recommended, what is the next smaller size 34" or 33"?

I have no clearance issues once or ever. I have a 2.5 sky jacker lift and pushing 35's with no upgraded drive shafts. I've put over 6k miles on road and trails without any issues.

Did you add bumpstops on there?I used to have a 2" BB and my 33s rub the fenders when fully stuffed.Its the reason why i got flat fenders back then.

Ha,no i don't have BB's, but i wish that JK's could have the same tube fenders that TJ's have. I love your rubicon, it's just like my old TJ, minus the tube fenders. I want to add a 2' body lift, but i don't know anymore. Think i'm just going to outfit the axles and add a snorkel, then call it a day till i buy something else in the future to make this more of a project rather than my DD.

You have plenty of clearance with 2.5" lift and flat flares for 35's...

I'll answer this one...

Bushwacker Flat Flares
Bushwacker - Fender Results

They've turned out to be surprisingly tough and resilient! I've had a few run-ins with trees and the sides of gullies and they just take the hits and keep looking good.

Your flex will be limited and you will be more prone to damage because of that.
