I'm contemplating getting a 2.5 lift but I'm afraid that it will look goofy with duratrac 295/65/18 what do you guys think? Will it be too high and look awkward? Should I just get a leveling kit? :confused:

I'm in the same boat. Don't really ever plan on going larger than 33's but afraid they will look small with a 2.5 inch lift. Especially considering the majority of lifts out there give you more then the advertised lift.

When i had my 2.5 Teraflex added the guys at 4 Wheel Parts nearly begged me to go with 35's instead of 33's and i am glad i did. They said 33's would look to small and i concur. The 35 Pro Comp Xtreme AT was only $3.00 more per tire than the 33 was.

Nothing wrong with 2.5" of lift and 33. It's a very nice combo. Remember the people at 4wp also like to make a profit.

Maybe but i like 35 better. Also the profit was only $3.00 more per tire so yea i guess they made a great bonus.

No, the price was only $3.00 more per tire, their cost could be significantly lower, so greater profit.

I was about to get some 33's with my 2.5" Lift and decided to go 35s at the last second. I'm very glad with the look. Especially if its a 4 door.

Could be, maybe, what if. Your really reaching my friend but if you can show me the true cost difference in what 4 Wheel Parts pays for Pro Comp 35x12.5x17 Xtreme AT tires vs the same tires in 33's then i will definitely concede that your post is correct. They charged me $3.00 more per tire. However the op asked everyone what they think about 33's on a 2.5 lift and i gave him my opinion. Now you can give him yours.

Personal preference, look at photos and decide if you are cool with it or not. Here's some examples.

I think they're a pretty good match, myself.

I have a 2009 JKU with a 2.5" AEV lift and 33x15x12.5 Duratracs. Got about 3" of real lift with AEV kit. I think 33s are bordering on too small, but look OK to me. I certainly understand that some think 35s are ideal for 2.5 inches of lift. Didn't want 35s due to engine performance issues at altitude with 3.73 auto.

2011 Sport manual with Teraflex 2.5" coil lift. 285/70/17 Falken Rocky Mountains. I have thought about going to 35's but don't want to have to spend even more money to regear right now. Also want to get a roof rack and if I go to 35's probably won't be able to get in the garage. However, IMO 33's do look small on a 4 door with a lift.
