As a recent jeep owner I'm finally pulling the trigger on some new wheels and tires. I was torn between the toyo mts and the tgs but have decided on the nittos. My hardest decision is trying to figure out what size will fit. I have an aev 2" spacer lift on my jku Sahara.
I am going with an 18" wheels due to the fact that I got a killer deal on a set from a buddy of mine who owes me a favor. If I were going with the toyos, I understand I would've gotten the 33/12.50 18. But since nitto doesn't make a straight 33, all their metric sizes are really confusing me. I was leaning toward the 285/65 which nittos specs say measures in at 32.83. I would like to go a little bigger if I can. Possibly the 295/70 which measure up a 34.57. I know that is pushing it with only a 2" spacer but after mounted, psi adjusted, and weight added on I'm thinking that might be the way to go.
If anyone can please chime in and help a brother out that would be great. I'm driving myself nuts!! Thanks again guys!!!

You can run a 35" tire stock with cut fenders and trimmed pinch seams. I think you should be fine with a 2" lift. What year do you have? The late 2013 and 2014s have the pinch seams trimmed fromt he factory.

Here is my 2013 Sahara, 2" coil spacer lift riding on 285 65 R18 Nitto Trail Grapplers. No rubbing, minimal road noise and a great ride.
