Tire Size Reference w/Pics

I know there are people out there like me who have seen pics of jeeps and wondered what tire wise that is in hope of duplicating it on our. So what I'd like to have here is just pics of a view or two of your jeep with notes of tire size and wheel with and how many inches of lift if you have one. No need to get too indepth with the info just the basics and if you see that there is already someone who has posted with your basic setup there is really no need to keep posting the same setup over and over and I'd like if you have a question on someones setup to PM them instead of posting your question here in hopes of keeping the thread short and sweet as just a pic reference of tire sizes with pics.

For daily driving, would you guys recommend the budget boost if not doing a lot of off roading, or would the 2.5 suspension lift give it a nicer ride?

Thanks! I would say the snow traction is really good. Given the fact they are pretty wide makes them pull in slush & water puddles as typical of wider tires. I don't mind it and just slow down when conditions require it but that is not for everybody.

"Nicer" is very subjective. You will find lots of people here that rave about their "Brand X" lift, and then a handful that think it wrecked their Jeep.

Most lifts have spring rates that assume you are going to have heavier tires, and some accessories... any stiffer spring rate is going to resist movement and give a harsher ride. Some people like a more 'truck like' ride.

There are some kits with multi-rate springs that have a bit softer rate... AEV for one... some people like it both on and off-road. (I did when I had one).

Budget boosts are just spacers and aren't going to change anything for the better. But, they will alter your geometry a bit, throw your caster out, and with larger tires may bring out the weaknesses of the JK suspension.

Personally, I wouldn't go with a spacer kit for anything more than a 1" levelling tweak... But, if you just want clearance for bigger tires, are mostly putting around town... it would be fine.

I like that size in a wrangler. Great compromise between looks / capability and road manners for a daily driver.

What tires are those, and what do they weigh per tire? How have you found your performance (MPG, power loss) vs. the stock tires?

Thanks!

cooper ST/Maxx about 65lb a tire and I notice no real difference but I replace the stock ones very early on as immediately. around town I get 15-16mpg and on the highway 18-19mgt better if I drive slower worse if I drive 80mph+

Looks like an E rated tire, do you notice a harsh ride? What PSI do you keep them at? You had to have gotten a reinforced tailgate for the spare!

28psi not harsh at all but I prefer E rated tires. I have run them in all different sizes I have had several sets of Toyos from 245/75-16 on up to 35/12.5-17 and my last two sets have been the Cooper ST/Maxx in 285/75-17 and now this set. I have run the teraflex hd hinge since 2012 with no issues.

It seems as if 295/70r17 is the perfect compromise between looks / capability while keeping decent street manners / performance.

285/70/17 Cooper Discoverer AT3 vs 295/70/17 Cooper Discoverer MTP. The 295s seem a lot bigger. The last pic is with the 295s.

Here is a shot of a stock 255x75x17 KM versus 305x70x17 KM2 side by side, and then comparison pics on my Rubicon. Love the KM2's and really like this size on my Jeep.
