TJ's with Rubicon Flares, 4" lift, with 33" or 35" tires

I have a TJ now and am switching to the Rubicon flares (I have 6" pocket-style flares now). I'm considering buying new tires this summer but unsure about the size. I'd like to see how much wheel clearance I will have with 35's or see how my jeep will look now with the rubi flares. THANKS!


If my Jeep had boobs I'd marry it

Sorry, I have 33" tires now with a 4" lift. The tires are wrapped around 15x8 ion alloys...

I just installed MTR Kevlar 35" and am very impressed with the tire.

Its a Sahara but the flares are the same as the Rubis I am pretty sure. I have 33x12.50 MTRs with 10x15 wheels and 4 inches of lift.

You mind taking a pic going down the side of the jeep to see how far they stick out from the flares?

Correct. When the TJ Sahara first came out (long before the Rubi) they had the wider flares. This was just added as part of the Rubi package.

So you should say that the Rubi's are the same as the Sahara's, not the other way around
