How much lift for a particular tire size?

I once saw a chart that showed how much lift that you need to run a particular tire size. I'm trying to figure out what I need to get my 35's on.

Was it the one in JP Magazine about 1-1/2 or 2 years ago?

Yeah, that looks like it. Thanks. Maybe a mod could sticky this or something? Similar to what the FAQ has in the YJ section. I know it would probably cut down on some questions.

Another thing to consider is how tall a particular brand's tire is. My friend's CJ has 35's on it that are barely 34's.
My old 33's only were 31's in reality, but my new MT Baja MTZ's are supposed to be 32.9". Sitting uninflated next to the old ones inflated, the MTZ's are significantly taller.

So make sure your tire is really what it says it is....just because it says 33.12.50 on the side doesn't mean it's really that size.

Goes for car tires, too. I remember my old Trans Am..I used to burn the rears off on a regular basis. My dad owned a body shop/tire store, so I just kept used take-offs on the rear. I used 275/60/15's, and there was a drastic difference in the size depending on manufacturer. I had one set that actually rubbed, and another that barely filled the wheelwell up.

I'm running 36" Iroks (36.9") with 4" lift and TJ flares. I do however rub a little.
