35" MTRs mounted!!!! Pics inside

60pounds (98 dollars) later i got them mounted and balanced. Funny thing was that the mechanic here in the UK never encountered tires this big and had to make sure they fit on his balancer machine before he took on the job. I didn't really want to use weights on the outside but i was scared the 15" rims would rub with sticky inside weights. Anyway: i played it safe and no issues with rubbing on the calipers. The rear tires are about an inch from rubbing my rockers but it should help when i take the old 33" tires and wheels out of the back of the jeep. The difference in a 15" wheel and 17" wheel is night and day with the way the jeeps rides (a lot smoother). I`m sure the extra two inches of rubber helps too.The MTRs grip the road way better than the mickey thompson MTZs. A lil quieter too...but only time and wear will tell with noise. Still waiting on my 5th tire and wheel to come in the mail so i don't look so much like a poser driving down the road with a stock sized spare on the lift gate.

15" MB72s
35X12.5R15 GY MTRs
on a 2.5 inch skyjacker lift (which i need to address this front sagging problem next)

I like it. Are you lifted? That rear tire looks pretty close to your flares! Do you have any rubbing?

NM the lifting thing. I just saw the 2.5" Skyjacker below the pic.

They look great, but that's with a lift???? I would seriously think about sending these pictures to Skyjacker.

This is what my 35" MT/R's look like on a 2.5" lifted Unlimited...

even with the lift he has I would cut that pinch seam and what looks like a, Rubi rocker rail? The better way to do this way better is to have adjustible rear CA's set it back about 5/8, no need to cut the Jeep wont hit the rear bumper. Also making the rear back is always a good thing anyway. Stufs in like a glove. On road you may not flex it enough to hit the pinch. I would check it have a spotter. With the set up you have (i have about the same rims and K's on a 012 Rubi) off road you can run as low as 9psi-12 for most on road is about 27-28 If you are on say a 15x8 35"x12.5x15 at least start at 27. Tire max is 35 but thats on a 9-10 rim and the weight of a light truck.

Great tire can be harsh/noise for a DD. Did you gear for these?

Those tires look awesome. I wish they were practical for my type of driving, but alas, I need to concentrate on 80% highway..... Guess I'll have to settle for pics of other peoples.

wow i see the difference. I bought the jeep with the lift on it. it has the spacers on top of the coils and skyjacker shocks and it sat a tad bit higher than stock jeeps but it sits way lower than yours. my jeep only has 22k miles on it so it couldn't be from springs sagging. my front bumper weighs down the front but the rear looks like it has way less clearance than yours. does skyjacker sell any spacer lifts smaller than 2-2.5"?

Take a picture of the spacers for us.

My guess is that you have a leveling kit (or similar minimal spacers) and skyjacker shocks. Not a "true" lift like I bet the dealer/seller led you to believe.

I'm sure it blows the minds of 90% of the people in UK/Europe to see a flagrant gas guzzling American all purpose road machine.
I occasionally see a Trabant in the Czech Republic, (2 cycle), and it's rare to see a US brand.
Do you have a diesel engine?
Oops, didn't see the part about you shipping it.

Looks good....but time for a coil spring lift or add some flat fenders as you got some serious sagging!!! The stock springs are horrible and sag like an 80 year old's titties when you add bumpers & winch.

Yup, time for a legitimate lift.
