Any pics of 285/75/17 on JKU and no lift.

I'm going through the 33" tires and no lift thread and I've seen a few. Just wanting to specify here if anyone is running the 285/75/17s and doesn't have a lift.
Most likely the tires I will go with will be the Toyo Open Country AT2s.

I assume the air dam will need to be trimmed or removed.
Do you have wheel spacers (spider trax, etc)?
Any other issues?

I'll be putting a 2" lift and new shocks on it when I can get a buddy of mine to help but that might be another month or so. I'd kinda like to go ahead and get the tires now if it's doable. If not, no big deal.

Iím not opposed to it . I guess that would be a little wider but not as tall??

I was going for taller than I currently have. I have the stock 265/70/17.

Here's an example from Nitto Ridge Grappler. I'm getting the 285/70/17. I didn't want a much taller tire but I did want wider. So these are a tad taller than stock and a bit wider. In addition to these numbers check out the tire conversion chart at Discount tire. The conversion chart is literal and doesn't take in to account each brands slight size variations but it IS very helpful getting a feel for things. The Discount Tire vendor on here also offers $50 off or something for a fifth tire. Ok here is the info from Nitto and obviously C class for smoother ride. Note differences in sizes:


LT285/70R17 C 116/113Q 217010 16.4 32.76 11.50 7.5-(8.5)-9.0 2755/2535 @ 50 57.89
LT285/75R17 C 117/114Q 217210 16.4 33.86 11.26 7.5-(8.0)-9.5 2835/2600 @ 50 65.08

285/70 is the same width as 285/75 (285 is the width). The 2nd # (70 or 75) is the aspect ratio, ie the sideway height is 70 (or 75) percent of the width of the tire. Which means xxx/75/17 is taller than xxx/70/17, but are the same width.

I have had both and would suggest going with the 75 for the simple reason no one every wishes they went once size down.
not stock but only 1.5 lift.

1.5" spidertrax. either an aev 2" or RK 1.5" I cant remember which was in on that photo at that time but they gave the same amount of lift either way.

Which wheels are those? I like them, they're not too flashy, but look nice.
