I'm looking to put sum true size 33" tires on my YJ like swampers or nitto mud grappler, or just go straight to 35"s",..most tire sizes fall short by about an inch of there claimed heights/sizes!?!,..the kumho kl71's i run are 33" (actual= 32.3"!)..we need a good tire height to raise our axles up for the ground clearance!! we only need the suspension lift to give us the room for the bigger tires to flex. AEV can put 37" on a 2.5" LIFT!!!!. i love the look on 35"s...lets see ur rigs guys :D

Those 35 km2's are 34.8 to be exact...
oh and i wasnt trying to be a dick, but i figured he wanted to see yjs since we have leafs all around as opposed to coils on tjs, and are they really? hmm i guess quadratecs chart is off.

You know you can play around with tire height by the width of the wheel right?

hi guys,..UK time difference's delays my answers abit,.sorry!..love the pix JLONG ur TJ looks well balanced on the swappers and a good size love them tires!!..im looking forward to seeing how CPISANI89's YJ looks on the KM2 35"'s!!..but why the 2" shackles cpisani!??...wouldnt a 1.25" JKS BODY LIFT be better?..I have 1/4" BOOMERANGS on mine and a 1" bl,.and they dont affect look or clearance at all..steering stays firm too which can get sloppy on big shackles!'

....im thinking u mean a wider wheel will shorten the ride height alittle?..if so...i think it may be true...but my tires are on a 15x8" rim and it rounds off the sidewall abit more than my mates 15x10" rim that just makes his tire look abit wider/squarer looking, but next to eachother they look same height still
