35 inch tires on sahara or sport

Hello to all.
I wondering - can I put 35 inch tires to these versions of jeep?
Does the axles bear such big tires?
By the way - which dana is inside sport and sahara. Does they have a different dana or the same?
greetings

i am assuming its a JK, fill out your info.

front is a d30 rear is d44

35"s with stock fenders need about 2.5+ lift with at least 2.5 bump stops and a back space of 4.5". the D30 is at is max off road. if used in harder scenarios. It can break a axle. but that again is in hard crawling. most people will be fine.

Gears again depending on what year, manual or auto. most will need a regearing.

It really depends on what you want to do with your Jeep. If you're driving it on the road, you can fit 35's with Flat Fender Flares alone. If you want some more room to flex you want to go with a small Lift Kit.

Whether or not the axle will hold up to the tires is also dependent on how you plan on using the vehicle. Let me know what questions you have or if you'd like a quote on anything.

In future I would like to buy jeep JK.
My dream is rubicon but it is more expensive than sahara or sport.

About the using of my jeep - usually asphalt - but sometimes offroad. When I will buy thic vehicle - certainly I will use it more often in off road (forest roads, mud, snow. NOT crawling). Also I want to make my car great look - you know: lift kit, big agressive tires etc.
Of course I wonder is it 35 tires a good choice? Maybe 34 will be enought? What do you think.
I don't want to spoil my axles.

With a 2012 or later model (since they have the 3.6 Pentastar engine), gearing won't be as important as earlier models. The JKs handle 35s nicely.

12 JKR 2 door, MCE Gen III Flares, Teraflex 1.5" Perfomance Leveling kit, 35" MTRs, ARB bars front/rear, ARB diff covers, ARB Dual Compressor, AEV DOT-compliant beadlocks, Warn Zeon 8

97 TJ, MCE fenders and flares, heavily used and reliable on 35's.

I just did a 3.5 inch lift, springs and shocks, and put on 35x12.5x18 toyos. Seems like sometimes the tires grab the road and steer themselves. anything I should look at or do I have to get used to them tracking differently? How about dual steering stablizers?

The wider tires do grab and follow ruts and cracks in the pavement noticeably more. Unless it gets worse, indicating something is worn out, you will just need to consider it the new normal. Dual steering stabilizers won't help, they are just for looks on a Jeep suspension, or to cover up another problem.

I've had my 2014 2 door Sport for 1 month now and have had the 2" body lift with 20" wheels-35" tires for 3 weeks and I LOVE it.
6 speed manual transmission works well with the V6 compared to my old 2000 TJ with the 4 banger.
Tires do sometimes try to AUTO-DRIVE in grooved pavement but nothing to worry about.
The ride is a little stiffer-bouncy but I didn't buy-build it to have a Cadillac ride, our other daily driver is for long road trips, this for now is my 5km drive to work vehicle, weekend fun tanning machine, tow the camp trailer and have a blast vehicle.
It also fits into our garage height wise, one day a 2.5 suspension lift might happen IF it would still fit in it's home.
Good luck with your choice, I went 10 years without a Jeep and I've never been happier getting back behind the wheel...

^^Looks good! As others have said you can run 35's with either version but in my opinion for 2011 and below JK's a regear should be added into the cost of lift and tires right away. This is why I am still stock haha!

2010 JKU - Stock for now
2005 WK - 6" lift, 35" BFG's, a lot more (SOLD)

Just for your information, being in Europe you may have different engine/trans combos than we do. Suppose you have a diesel, running bigger tires will only require a small lift or cut fenders. My opinion, more research is in order.

Just my opinion, yours will differ.
