Help with tires

Alright so I put a 4" Rough Country Suspension lift in my Jeep over a month ago and I finally saved up enough money to buy bigger tires, I already bought new rims which are Black Rock Steel Wheel 997 Type 8 16x8" 5x5 Bolt Pattern Back Spacing 4 1/4". I was wondering what size people would recommend for me to put on, I'm not looking to stuff the biggest tires on it. I just want her to look good and I really like the General Grabber AT2's but I was wondering if anyone else had some suggestions.

Thanks.

Depends on your intended usage but a 32" tire on stock wheels was as big as I could go without cutting sheet metal. I cut off the lower bit of my front bumper and run a protofab rear bumper. I didn't use the tc drop or the bumpstop extensions and did add limit straps. I cycled the susp through its travel without springs on the lift and set my jounce and bump limits based on that process. Off road disco'd I get a slight rub in the inner front wheel wells when fully flexed but just enough to make paint shiny

I'm putting the rc 4in lift in the summer and I've been researching too rc suggest, and a lot of people suggest 265/75/16 (32s). And ive been looking at the grabbers AT2 as well and a lot of people love them I suggest them and they're not that expensive

32's is most functional with very little trimming (i.e. plastic, not metal). Plus, you have the 4.0, so anything larger and it will be even more of a d o g.

Thanks everyone, I ended up getting the 265/75 16's in the General Grabber. I absolutely love the way it looks.

Jeep looks good but those grabbers wear BAD.....like 20k miles only out of a set. Wish you the best on wear. Keep them balanced and rotated! I was going to suggest Treadwright before I got to the bottom and saw you already purchased some.
