Alright, so all-in-all would you guys just play it safe and easy and go with the 33s, or do all the work for 35s? In all honestly this thing probably won't see many trails at all if any. The most action it'll probably get is crossing creeks and mud getting around in the land behind my house, with road travel of course.

why kill on road performance and mpg for 35's when you wont use them for their intentions?

not saying its gonna hurt the jeep any to go to 35s other then mpg and maybe some steering/braking components. (more then likely youll never have any)but **** happens.

if your not gonna wheel it often enough to spend extra money on the tires themselves, + the extra gas, why not go 33's till your ready to change directions.

i will say if you will it a few times its like the flu you wont be able to shake off the urge to hit the trails again and again.

gl with whichever you go.

Go with 35's... You never know when you'll actually NEED them... I used to do a trail in my YJ about 4 years ago on 31's... With 33's this year in my JK, I got stuck... Had I had 35's I would have done great...

that yj on 31s possibly had higher body/frame clearance than your jk on 33s though. YJs imo had alot better clearance.

Of course, 35's are better off road than 33's. So, if you want to cut on your rig and have some rubbing, and maybe re-gear, go with the 35's. Or, like I said about two dozen posts ago, 33's are the tire.

Go with 35's. A 2" lift is standard for 35's in the first place.
Heck, I'm running 37's with 2.5" of lift and fenders trimmed into flats (rear pinch seam trimmed, too).

Rusty's which is probably what this was since they are the biggest seller specs 33"s for their 2" lift.

Theres really to many variables to consider a certain lift height to a certain tire size...

So, are you saying the OP should buy some 35's and see how they fit?

I'm confident the 33's will fit. And, I was responding to someone who said that 35 is the standard for a 2" lift, which, of course, it is not.
