Trying to decide on tire size for wife's Rubicon. Installing a TF Performance leveling kit (coils) and was going to go with 285/70 17" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Shop that is doing the work asked me if I really want to put the 31" on the vehicle or go with a 33".

Wondering what this size measures out to on the vehicle. Anyone with some digits?

I figured that they will indeed be at 32" or just under when on the vehicle because the 295/70 17" on my jeep measure out at 32".

I think the 285's will look good with the leveling kit though and I can't have my wife with bigger tires than me right?!

Thanks in advance for the input and thoughts.

All depends on the tire and what psi you run in them. My 285/70/17 Falken Wildpeak AT3 E-rated come in at just under 32.5" if I remember correctly.

^^^Just click on the PICS to enlarge.

Mine has the 285/70R/17 C Rated Nitto Ridge Grapplers, mounted on a 9" wide Rim, with 4.5 Back Spacing.

1" Teraflex leveling spacer up front.

This will give you a idea of what it will look like.

O.K., Measuring horizontally at the approx. center of the tire with 35 PSI, it measures about 32 1/4".

Great tires, But now want something more aggressive looking AND going to a 285/75/17.
Leaning towards the Falken Wildpeak's.

My old Nitto Terra Grappler G2s measured 31.5 on the nose.

Anyone else have mounted height of the 285/70/17 Falken AT3W?

Found this when I was looking after install on Saturday.
Tire: Falken AT3W LT285/75R17 (2803012)
Rim: 17"x8.5"
Pressure: 35psi (cold)
One full rotation: 102.5"
Tire height on vehicle (rotation/pi): 32.63"
Set FlashCal for 32.75" tires and GPS and speedo are spot on.

This is 1.27" smaller than the claimed height on Falken's site and I am disappointed.

My 285/75/17 Terra Grappler G2 measure right at 33" on the nose. Nitto specs these at 33.9.

My 285X75X17 Maxxis Buckshot II MT-764 on stock ruby rims measured just over 34 inches. Calibrated tire size for 34.2 and speedo is dead nuts on. Do have a 2.5" JKS lift but I think with a leveling kit they would fit.
