Tires on stock Rubi wheels with 4" lift

I've already done some searching on tire size conversions etc.
Wondered if I could get some input on what tire size some of you run with a 4" lift and stock Ruicon wheels. This is for a '05 Unlimited Rubicon.
Thanks all.

285/75R16's fit with out spacers. Is a bit tight between the rubber and rear frame spring cup though.

I am running 285/75R16s on Rubi rims, perfect tire size with the stock Rubi flares, keeps the tread of the tire within the flares, which is perfect because its illegal here to have your tires stick out past your flares.

I did have to add 2 washers to the steering stops to keep the tires from rubbing at hard lock on the control arms.
